Hi All
         A new version (1.14) of APRS-SCS is on line and ready for 
down load.
Please go to the following URL.


So what is new. Read on

Version 1.14 
Incorporated the displaying of APRSdos maps. 
APRS-SCS can now use APRSdos maps as it mapping system. 
APRS-SCS can still use the USGS map data maps it used before this 
The user can switch back and forth between the two mapping systems 
while APRS-SCS is running. 
The exciting news is now APRS-SCS can run on any PC capable of 
running WINDOWS 98se. 
So now any old low memory slow PC can run APRS-SCS as long as they 
only display the APRSdos maps. 
The APRS-SCS Web page now has a link where you can down load the full 
distribution of APRSdos 
maps. Any personal APRSdos maps that you may have can be easily added 
The map format is unchanged. All you have to do is copy your map 
files to the \aprsscs\dosmaps 
sub directory and then run EdMapList.exe to add your map files to the 
maplist1.scs maplist file. 
Those that are ugrading from an earlier version of APRS-SCS will have 
to make a shortcut to the 
EdMapList.exe file. Those that are registered users of APRS-SCS will 
have to delete their 
aprsscs.ini file before they run APRS-SCS version 1.14 for the first 
time. Make sure you save 
your registration number first. 
The only limitation is APRS-SCS will only work with APRSdos maps that 
are Normal and Line format. 
In the very near future I will be making new versions of 
mapmaking.exe and mapfix.exe programs that will run 
on todays modern PC. 
Thank You Bob WB4APR For all your help in making this possible.

Let us hope we never witness the "Silence Of The Hams"
