Well, that was not what I was describing.  I was talking about
the brand new WEB PAGE message entry portals such as FINDU, and
OpenAPRS where a person manually enters a message into the APRS
system.  I am welcome to a better term if there is one, so that
we do not have confusion as apparently we did here.

Thanks
