[aprssig] A Plea !!!!!!!!!

Since we're talking about this I have a question/suggestion.

I've used APRS for a couple of years as primarily an "appliance 
operator". We gear up for a public service event, etc. and I know to 
plug in a certain set of parameters and the messaging and tracking 
works. Until recently I didn't care much about paths, alias', etc. as 
long as the APRS lead for the event gave me what they wanted to see.

I've been researching a new project lately and have a need to 
understand all of these things. It seems that every web site I locate 
wants to give me a history lesson. It would be refreshing if there was 
a site for newcomers that goes right to today's accepted configuration 
with the WideN paradigm, etc. and skipped over all the things we 
shouldn't be doing. The old stuff could just be flagged as obsolete.

As my own information gathering progresses I plan such a set of pages 
if nothing seems to exist by the time I feel comfortable in giving 

Tim, N9PUZ
