I got a response... that is a neat-o feature... we're having an aprs class today
in Florence SC, I'll be sure to mention it!

My email program won't/can't mark the email back to me as read... it always
stays bold... but please don't take it down to tinker.... so I can show it off
for the class today.

> Anything in the message body will be ignored.

> Within a few min, it will reply back to you with a message with a
> subject such as "CHASE is 5.3 miles southwest of FBALL"
>
> If you get a strange reply, verify you have the station names correct.
> It currently does not have any error checking, so it may spew some
> garbage if it can't find a station.
>
> This is setup mainly to work with text messages on cell phones, but will
> work with e-mail. The message is very short so it can be easily read on
> a cell phone.
>
> So, fire off some e-mails and let me know what you think!
