I am 100% in support of the concept of linking multiple Satellite ground
stations everywhere so that we can see downlinks anywhere. We have been
pushing for this since 1996.  I support Phils proposal.

But for APRS packets in the ISS and soon PCsat downlinks which are low
dutycycle and for which a worldwide distribution system already exists, I
tend to prefer the backwards compatible approach using what we have
already.  THen as Phil's system comes on line, we can transition at a
later date to the ultimate protocol for all satellite data...
