[aprssig] APRServe??

As far as I know it's just a matter of editing the aprsserv.txt file in the
WinAPRS directory.  Here's what mine looks like:

#	NOTE: This is a comment
first.aprs.net	10152	first.aprs.net
second.aprs.net	10152	second.aprs.net
third.aprs.net	10152	third.aprs.net (FL)
aprsfl.net	23	Full Feed
aprsfl.net	10152	World Feed
aprsfl.net	10153	World Feed (w/ 30min dump)
aprsfl.net	1314	Messages only
aprsfl.net	14579	East Coast US feed
aprsfl.net	10156	Within 350 miles
aprsfl.net	10157	within 100 miles
aprsfl.net	10154	US Only feed
rotate.aprs.net	10152	Rotate all core srvrs
orlando.aprs.net	14579	Orlando feed

The first few were already there, but I added some more that I use a lot.
Then restart WinAPRS, and they should show up under the servers list.  Each
field in the text needs to be separated by a tab, the first field is the
server address, followed by the port number, and then whatever description
you want it to have.

Thanks for the replies Robbie & Steve. Here is the burning question:
How do I configure WinAPRS (not UI-View or any other program) to connect to
rotate.aprs.net on port 23 or any other other regional filtered feed? A
basic question the answer to which seems to elude me.
