"I'm testing the next version of APRS Messenger.

This version will have two way APRS-IS messaging as an option for Igate 
stations. This will allow remote HF stations to send and receive APRS messages 
and Acks through a HF Igate to any other APRS station connected to the APRS-IS 

It all appears to work OK and I'll be testing it over the next few days to see 
if there are any bugs.

To shorten the HF packets the toCall, digis and TCP/IP information is stripped 
from the APRS-IS packets and replaced with a APSK99 toCall.

If any one wants to try it out before I release it let me know and I'll email a 
copy out.


Chris, G4HYG"
