If you look at N7ZMR-4
http://www.findu.com/cgi-bin/wxpage.cgi?call=N7ZMR-4&last=24 you will
see that it is TCPIP* and qAC as it is a verified connection. This is
because although the station is Internet only there is a place in the
software for a verification number and call sign. This station is
located where I work and just sits on a dedicated PC 24-7. The intended
output of the station can be found here:
http://swo.odf.state.or.us/cgi-bin/gp.pl but the APRS side sends out
the data much more frequently that what is sent to the web page, thus
being more "live".
