[aprssig] What's this symbol?

The new S, L and P overlays for the new settings on the digipeaters. The *
"S"* fully support WIDEn-N and SSn-N for *State or section* routing. The *
"L"* digis are the same but are limited and do not support state routing,
and the *"P"* digis are old Paccomm Trace digis that have been configured to
support WIDEn-N. In some extreme areas, one-hop digis (like in LA) and
fill-in WIDE1-1 only digis will have the "1" to show they are an enforced
1-hop digi.

Eventually we hope that ALL digipeaters in the USA will change over to these
new *S, L or P* Overlays to show they have upgraded their settings to the
New N Paradigm. Also a common notation set in the position comment text of
the position report should summarize what the digi now supports. See *See
the Details on Overlays and the proper form for the Position Comment

In theory there is no difference between practice and theory.
