I'm using a C++ program that I wrote myself.  I was using second.aprs.net because it was so reliable.  
  I will switch to a Tier 2 server this morning.

Change the overlay (between the lat - long) to \ and leave the symbol
after the long as a k... i.e.


What device are you using that you have to enter it manually?

Also, N9TN-1 was most recently connected to CORE-2, and currently N9TN 
is connected to CORE-2. The recommendation is that end users should be 
using one of the Tier 2 servers with the filtered port 14580. Every 
end-user that we can move from the CORE to Tier 2 will help lessen the 
stress on the core servers. Strangely, http://second.aprs.net:14501/ 
doesn't show what the port 10151 that you are using is meant for.
