The APRS signal is over FM, right?  Don't we need quadrature to decode it, 
giving us only 2 channels of I+Q?

Or were you tinking of just using the USRP for location finding, and using 
a separate APRS receiver for receiving packets and trying to get the 
timing right so the USRP locates the right packet?  I guess if we're in 
the middle of nowhere there probably aren't *too* many other users to lead 
us astry...
