Further, even the most recent version of WinAPRS contains a
way-out-of-date APRS symbol set. As far as I know, it still doesn't
properly handle overlaid characters on the secondary symbol set.
This is essential to correctly displaying the "New Paradigm" WIDEn-N
digipeaters. They use a numeric character overlaid on top of a solid
green star from the secondary symbol set (instead of the traditional
green star with a white hole with the fixed letter "D" in it from the
primary set) to indicate how many digipeat hops they support.
Many other symbols have been updated, added or moved to different
positions in the symbol set as well. See the most current APRS symbol
