Sure, I'll try to remember to add it tomorrow, probably in the first
section near the Base-91 Compressed rows.

If people could feed me reports of which clients Do/Don't support
the !DAO! format, I'll fill in the appropriate boxes.  The only one
that I currently suspect might support it is APRSdos.

FWIW:  I'm a SAR member too, field qualified, active in two units in
our county, Marysville Unit (field unit) and OSU (Operational
Support Unit).  This higher-resolution stuff is important to me 'cuz
I do a lot of base support work at times.
