I did not know that. But I've been playing with MacAPRS since 96 so I 
know it's been an important part of APRS. Should have been called 
MacAPRS for Windows.

I ran the local iGate with MacAPRS for a few years before setting up 

Now my iGate and regional server are back on Macintosh on my Xserve G4 
running javAPRSSrvr on OSX.
