Well Cap, unfortunately you do not know the Michigan APRS network it
appears. All digis here that digi weather must have WXn-n instead of MIn-n
because of how a large amount of the NWS weather stations were setup 3-4
years ago. We are working to change this, but figured getting the 15 digis
up to "L" first was a good start.
So, why do we need to be an S digi when the real goal is to support
WIDE1-1,WIDE2-2 mobiles and HTs?
Why would I want Altitude in my digi posit? I assume that is what A= sets?
Not really sure why yours is better, I tried to play it out in my head.
Everything else you list we already have the same. Only differences are LT
text and UIDIGI command.
Maybe I need some further explinations?

This is not good.
Better for that old Kantronics KPC-3 v8.2 TNC as a needed _full_ digi ("S
overlay" on the digi star map symbol) would be:

Here is the raw data as seen on Findu:
;442.175+MI111111z4258.14N/08539.91WrT103.5 Dtwn Grand Rapids
So what did we miss? Is it supposed to have a star after MI maybe?
