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

aprs-scs 1.27 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.zip

Upgrade.txt contains very important information on how to upgrade 

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.
I have now received 3 reports that users were able to install and run 
aprs-scs on Win2k.
Maybe the earlier reports were from corrupt Win2k systems. Maybe a 
Microsoft Win2k Service Pack has fixed the problem. I do not know. 
All I can say at this point is “Your Millage May Vary”.

What follows is the WhatsNew 
Version 1.27 the use of "Weather Display" Software. Now you can use 
the third party "Weather Display" software to output your weather 
station data. Weather Display has a feature that will output a file 
containing an APRS weather formated packet. APRS-SCS can now use this 
information to send out Weather packets. The weather packets that 
APRS sends out are the "Complete Weather Position Packets" The 
complete weather Position Packets are the only type of weather 
packets that APRS-SCS sends out. This is because APRS-SCS follows the 
spec and does the way Bob WB4APR wants it done. Check out the new 
format of the Setup/Weather tab. Note the Help button. click on the 
Help button to gain information on how to use this new Feature. you 
are using software other than Weather Display that outputs a file an 
APRS weather formated packet and you would like APRS-SCS to this 
software then please send me the following: Name of the Software. the 
APRS Weather formated files it outputs. the above is done then a 
future release of APRS-SCS will support this 
As always you can obtain aprs-scs at 

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