         Actually, it makes the TNC function as a NODE, not a 
digipeater.  This terminology is the source of confusion in several 
areas, what with people putting up nodes instead of digis, calling a 
dig a node, etc.  We need digipeaters in APRS, not nodes.  But 
Stephen is right -- it won't work with APRS software at all.
