Thanks for the comments...
The problem with the tags in the comment fields is that it doesn't
allow selecting stations on an APRS map. Hmmm - given that it looks
like the only real options is a station icon since most applications
don't allow selecting displays by SSID but do by icon.
By RF only I just mean that my station won't have an Internet
connection. It will still depend on the local, and not so local,
Igates for extended connectivity.
