[amsat-bb] Open source APRS tracker Kickstarter

The #1 question is what Path this device will use.  It is an abomination
to fly such a tracker on the APRS network with a beacon rate more often
than once a minute,  *OR* with a path via more than 1 hop.  If those
limits are not implemented in hardware, these devices could trash the
national APRS frequency.

Half the balloons we see go up to not adhere to these APRS standards
because the operators are clueless to the netwrk constraints and
apparently do nothing to research the proper settings..
