I see daily many stations using PinPoint APRS as a sidekick to VarAC and a discussion has arised that for more APRS activity, maybe it's not good to have that ongoing on the VarAC calling QRG.
This topic is not related to VarAC per se, but this might be a good place to start the conversation and thoughts of more dedicated VARA-based HF APRS frequency?
PinPoint APRS with VARA-HF is dependent on VarAC as it is the actual application keying the radio, but of course there could be other solutions for that, for example ask the author of PinPoint APRS to implement it.
I see that there is currently an issue with KISS-based traffic besides the VarAC traffic as it looks like the VARA-HF does not implement DCD for KISS-based traffic but just keys that on top of ongoing QSO or other detected traffic.
