If you "import" a new symbol into your software ... it won't show up on all 
the other folks APRS screens.  As I understand it, all symbols are sent as a 
code. When received, the receiving software looks up the code in the symbol 
table on that computer and uses the symbol that matches the code on the 
screen.

We are currently running the Yukon Quest dog sled race here.  I put an
object on the map to indicate where the frontrunners are.  The only
symbol I could find that was remotely indicitave of the event was the
jogger.  Is there a sled or dog symbol or some way that I could import a
symbol into the program?
