Ideas for “store and forward”.
Currently the aprs messages are called “high flux” and seem to only be transmitted once. If you happen to miss it… it is gone. This is fine for most routine status messages but for a store and forward message this really does not have a high probability of delivery.
Possible ideas for important “store and forward” messages might be getting them into the carousal and on a schedule for multiple transmission over a time period… say 6 hours or 24 hours. This doesn’t meet @Gavin_Groce desire for near or real-time but it might improve the probability of message being received by the designated recipients.
I am most interested in aprs messages that have a desired delivery window of 30 minutes from them entering the internet based aprs-is system.
