HI All
           Please read all of this E-Mail. Important information is 
contained within.

aprs-scs 1.26 is now ready for your down loading pleasure.
Please please please if you already have aprs-scs installed on your 
PC then use the 
upgrade.zip file. No using aprsscsfull.zip and installing to another 
directory. No using aprsscsfull.zip and installing on top of your old 
version. The setup program and 
Windows will not like this.

For those that will be using upgrade.zip please read the upgrade.txt 
file that is inside

Upgrade.txt contains very important information on how to upgrade 
It is a lot easier to upgrade from 1.25 to  1.26 then it was to 
upgrade from 1.24 to 1.25
So please please please read upgrand.txt and do exactly what 
upgrade.txt states.

Note aprs-scs does not work on Win2k. So if you are using win2k 
please do not
try to install aprs-scs.
Aprs-scs works just fine with Win98 and WinXP.

What follows is the WhatsNew  Please read all of the Whatsnew. It 
explains the new Bitmap.txt file format

Version 1.26 some bugs related to the saving of aprs-scs by 
registered users. some bugs related to the use of aprs-scs in the 
Southern and Western the format of the Bitmap.txt file. To explain 
here is an example. say you have a Bitmap named MYstreet.bmp then in 
order to display this Bitmap as map in aprs-scs you would have to 
copy the Mystreet.bmp file to the \aprsscs\bitmap Then in the 
\aprsscs\bitmap directory you would have to create a text file called 
Mystreet.txt. No tabs or any other funny characters just numbers 
spaces. So far this is the same as 1.25 but the Mystreet.txt file has 
a new format. user no longer has to supply a map range as the first 
line in the file. APRS-SCS automatically computes and displays the 
map range. the first line of the file becomes at top of map in 
decimal degrees. at Left side of map in decimal degrees at bottom of 
map in decimal degrees at right side of map in decimal degrees. 

As always you can obtain aprs-scs at 

Let us hope we never witness the "Silence Of The Hams"
