	I agree, the spec isn't really keeping up with the abilities.  I'd be 
frustrated, too -- the spec can be found, but with this addendum and 
that, it might be difficult to figure out what the CURRENT spec is.

	It just seems to me that I'm seeing Bob say that Xastir is broken 
because of where it puts the A= string for altitude, and Jason says 
Xastir isn't broken, the Kenwood rigs are and everyone else is suffering 
because of Bob's insistence that everyone conform to what the Kenwood 
rigs require.

	Fortunately, Xastir is current and can be updated/modified to anything 
necessary.  Not so with UI-View, which is one of the most popular 
programs for APRS, but one that Bob continuously runs down because it 
can't be changed.

	I believe I have just reduced several days' arguing to two paragraphs!  <G>
