so, at this time, about 2600 digipeaters are in the xml export.

Below a short report about the used overlay symbols. About 1000 stations use
'S' as overlay, 120 '1' and only a few 'X' as overlay. These digipeaters are
marked with a yellow star and should WIDEn-n compatible.

Another 1000 stations are using old/wrong symbols ('/', 'N', 'U', 'D'), but supporting WIDEn-n also.
Stations with '/' are marked as white star, all other marked as red star.

About 70 stations are using 'T' as digipeater overlay, this seems to be digipeaters supporting TRACEn-n only.
These stations (and all other unknown) are marked with the orange symbol.

     130 overlay="1">
      92 overlay="U">
      81 overlay="L">
      70 overlay="T">

Displaying the map with all digipeaters eats up some cpu cycles on your local machine and needs some
