Not a tracking one, but one that can send and receive APRS mssages I think.  We hope someone will write these kinds of APRS messaging applications on all wireless devices so hams can stay in touch by callsign anywhere, any time.

See the Blackberry link on the Universal Ham Text Messaging Initiative www.aprs.org/aprs-messaging.html

OOPs, I thought he was thinking APRS tracking... sorry, I see now it is OSCAR tracking... and we are here on the AMSAT-bb and not the APRSSIG...  But anyway, the Universal Text messaging objecive is across all platforms and all services, so it will apply to AMSAT operators too who need to text message someone else anywhere anytime using any device they may have in their hands.
