[aprssig] APRS Symbols for severe nature events

A couple of months ago, there was a discussion here (or perhaps merely
an opinion exchange) of possible new symbols.
Should one reserve one symbol for special scout categories other than
gender designator (why would one need even that one, I ask, being a
scout myself, and married to a scout); should one introduce a skier;
well, some handfuls of postings went to the list at that time.

I would (after recent nature events with great impact, at least for
road and railway traffic) hope there were a possibility to make a
symbol for _landslide_ and _avalanche_ (maybe one and the same
symbol?). There are possibly even other nature events missing a symbol
as well.

(BTW, I have made a change in the two scout symbols; my version is a
mini version of the WOSM - World Organization of the Scout Movement -
logo, and a version of the WAGGGS - World Association of Girl Guides
and Girl Scouts - logo; avaliable together with the else unchanged
version H for UI-View at my web place - link from
