The original APRSdos includes an overlay file of all such stores
including all radioshacks.  By just one-finger pressing the keys
M-O-S (Maps-Overlay-Stores) all of the stores would show up on
your map.  Drive right over and pick up what you need...

You bet, the concept of putting a HAM store on the map was all
part of the original APRS concept.  Remember, "tactical
situational awareness" was the whole concept of APRS...  But
"advertising and pushing product" seems to me to be across the
line...
