[aprssig] The ALOHA circle on all MAPS

Regarding the idea for all APRS software to compute
and always display the local ALOHA limit on all maps:

Thanks.  Having the ALOHA range limit displayed on all 
maps at all times right under the nose of every operator is 
my way of finally getting the message across to every 
user in real-time  what his actual usable APRS range is.

And since it follows from the laws of physics and scales
everywhere independent of geography and network
it is the holy grail of APRS as far as I am concerned...
