I endorsed Philip's suggestion for a symbol that would resemble the 
contents of a Sardine tin (lots crammed in!).

At the one location I run ..

BBS (VK2TV)
Node (VK2TV-1)
Digi (VK2TV-10)
Igate (VK2TV-4)
UIView (VK2TV-5)

I didn't appear on Steven's map because DigiNed wasn't beaconing, I was 
allowing Xastir to do that. However, I can see some sense in allowing 
beacons from the digi. BTW, I'm the northern-most APRS station in VK2, 
being some 300km south of the next station to the north of me, in VK4.
