o    AGW Tracker

All support  the use of AGWpe.  In turn, AGWpe can support any combination of 
up to 16 TNCs; either on actual physical COM ports or virtual COM ports from 
USB<-->serial dongles as long as they present a KISS-like interface, -or- one 
or more sound card "soft TNCs".

In the very near future, the APRS Messenger APRS-over-PSK63 sound card app will 
also support AGWpe.
