I don't see the original posting. The above quoted text was from Bob
WB4APRs reply. For Jeffrey... UI-View does allow the user to select the
laptop symbol.... /l (that's lower case L, not one). That's exactly what
I have selected on my laptop right now with a TCPIP only connection. Are
you using UI-View32 ver 2.03?

So, do I have this right...

/A is from the primary table, an Aid Station.
XA is a numbered box with an X overlay to represent an XO computer?

It displays properly in UI-View as a "box with an X in it" even if it
isn't an XO computer - hi!

Bob - I was going to suggest that it was as good a time as any if
someone wanted to step up to the bat and update the UI-View symbol set
for the XO computer, but it doesn't look like any changes are needed for
it. However, it would be nice if someone would add the skier symbol that
was added a few months ago. If someone was going to take it on, do you
have a list of any others that were also added over the few months?
