NO.   The icon set is over a decade out of date.  I wanted to do a set 
of new icons (APRS symbols) for WinAPRS to match the ones I did for 
UIview, APRSplus and findu (see links below), but the symbols appear to 
be compiled inside of the main .EXE file and are not changeable.   
Emails to the authors went unanswered.

This kind of path is for a mobile in a remote area.  From a home station 
in a populated area with more than one digipeater, you probably need 
only a single hop.  Try just WIDE2-1.    WIDE 1-1 as the first hop 
needlessly triggers other nearby home stations as the first hop.

The SSID used is irrelevent, as long as you don't accidentally use the 
SAME one for both a home station and a mobile.
