Great!.  I wonder if we could get him to change his symbol to
the correct Green WX-DIGI symbol "\_" before the Hamvention, so
that others can see this information as well.?

Ah, good info.  Another solution that has less consequence on
users is to simply use APRS Position Ambiguity.  Digipeaters can
avoid revealing their locations if they use a position ambiguity
of 1 mile.  DIGIpeaters do not need to show precise positions...
So using 1 mile position ambiguity on digipeaters is a good
routine technique.

Will there be an APRS Pizza meeting?
