>The main reason PHG is not used these days is because UIview did not immplement it, neither transmitting nor receiving and display.  And since UIview is the most used program, it has a significant impact on APRS. 


>UIview users need to run the PHG add-on to see this fundamental 3rd dimension of the RF network.

As the PHG add-on in fact _is_ made for UI-View, and easy to implement
for UI-View users, that comment was really unnecessary. 
When istalled, the PHG add-on is like many other components, some part
of the 2.03 standard installation; some separate add-ons.
And to beacon a PHG statement is easy for UI-View users, with or
without the add-on. It's an easy task to enter the statement in the
status text or the Beacon comment.
