Yes, which is why I asked.  I was going on the sentence that
said "each [local] Weather Service Office"..  Which implied to
me that there was a conversion to APRS at that point.  So that
software could be setup by its local SYSOP to include its local
freq.  Just part of the local set-up.

Something like that.
