Stephen, 
I think our emails crossed.  All of these are shown on
the overlay symbols GIF I posted later:

This comes along just as I am finalizing a revised symbol set for
FINDU. 
Some questions:

RE: OW  What is NWS symbol supposed to look like?

* I used the normal blue dot with an outer blue circle around it.

RE: O_  WX Site (green digi)   How is this different from O# (Normal 
green digi star)?

* All digis are supposed to use the overlays these days...

RE: Oa  What is a white Circle-diamond?  A circle with a diamond 
inscribed?  What two colors? ...

* see link above. 

RE: Oc  Same issue for Circle-triangle

*Supposed to basically be something like an old Civil Defense symbol

RE: oi  BOXn digi - what is this?  I had previously understood this 
symbol to apply to very local or interior digipeater.

* yes, but it is still a box with an overlay which could be used
  for other purposes..

You can see my current symbol assingnments at:

* Thanks
