and here is a realtime Google Maps based visualisation of APRS digipeaters (from DL1LJ)
in Germany, Swiss, Austria, Luxembourg and Poland.

All yellow stars are WIDEn-n digipeaters using correct overlay symbols.
Most of them are already tracing WIDEn-n. Digipeaters with old overlays
are red, white stars are old digipeaters (using RELAY, WIDE and so on).

At this time a lot of digipeaters are migrated to the NEWn-n paradigm
and we are contacting the sysops of the remaining digipeaters.



PS: Gerhard, please send me an email, if you want to see french digipeaters on the map.
