Regarding this web page:
It says this in the top section:
"Formats no longer recommended: Compressed-Objects, ITEM Format, Raw
I'd like to put in my thumbs-up for both Compressed Objects, and both
Compressed and Non-compressed Items.
We've implemented these in Xastir and I find them of use in SAR. Compressed
format gives much better precision in placing and/or recovering objects,
precision you cannot get with non-compressed APRS formats. Items are useful
for placing positions when you have no timestamp, as well as providing a
shorter packet than APRS Object format.
In short, I see no advantage to removing formats that are currently used to
good effect and already implemented in APRS programs.
