Dear Georg:

I do apologize...it has been awhile, and I am not sure at this point 
what even gave me that idea. Is 0.9 in the Market now? I know the 
version I have now (0.8) I had to dl/install outside of the market, so 
it is not tracking for updates...would it be eaisier to just remove 0.8 
and re-install 0.9 from the market?

I do like the app, and it seems to work well...just wish more igates and 
such ported TCP packets back to local radio...I have several friends in 
areas I travel that cannot see me when I am beaconing as they use radio 
to monitor local APRS traffic and their local I-gates/digis only port RF 
to the internet, not the other way.
