       Wow that was fast, thanks for the fix.
Now I think you have all the possible frequency combination's for all 
existing hardware or software TNC out there.

For any new APRS Messenger user out there, If you only want to do PSK63 
APRS, it don't matter which version you get.
Just have to know the USB or LSB dial frequency to set the radio.

If you want to do AX25 APRS and PSK63 APRS at the same time same radio, 
you need to choose the correct frequency version
for your AX25 TNC for the PSK63 tones to line up between the AX25 packet 

I just saw Stephen's explanation, thanks
All new users will need guidance to get their radios set to the correct 
frequency and SSB.
Bad enough keeping all theAX25 people on frequency.

Thanks Chris, this is the biggest improvement in HF APRS in years.
I think it will take of big time.
