idea.It's also kind of an offshoot from SSTV as it uses a totally new
method of sending the images, using digitally encoded data transported
over APRS UI frames.

advantages over the SSTV concept because the AVS packets can be
relayed via a digipeater whereas the SSTV signals would be limited to
simplex range unless being bounced through an audio repeater.

That doesn't mean that one can't play with this type of stuff...
that's what amateur radio is all about.
It may sound like I'm working hard to try and keep this type of system
from being implemented. Far from that, I'm just playing Devil's
Advocate, and pointing out possible issues that can be stumbling
blocks. It's easier to bash ideas around and try and ensure that you
are headed down the right path before starting to put real world
things together, whether that's software or hardware.
