[aprssig] TO-CALL for aprx software ?

Hello BoB, et.al.

  I have been working on extended version of my quite successful
Rx-IGate software.

With "Extended" I mean following:
  - Can do Rx-IGate
  - Can do Tx-IGate
  - Can do bi-directional IGate
  - Can do digipeater
  - Can do any combination of them
  - Can handle multiple radios (multiple frequencies
    as well as multiple radios on single frequency.)

I am herewith taking up TO-CALL    APRXxx    for this software.
Any objections ?   Could BoB register it?

  "The Aprx igate/digi  http://ham.zmailer.org/oh2mqk/aprx/"


For the curious,  the digipeater with Tx-IGate can be configured
on aprx 2.x  with something like the file at URL:
    http://repo.ham.fi/websvn/aprx/trunk/aprx.conf.in

Only version 1.x is available for general use at the moment.

One should not that it is not embeddable on surplus TNC2 clone.
A TNC2 clone with decent SMACK rom would be usable with this,
but it is not enough alone, however modern PC is smaller than
either radio or TNC -- following wiki text is in local encryption,
but you can understand the pictures:

And following is what area it is able to serve:

Distance circles are in 10 km steps, and it does include data points
on the Gulf of Finland, as a few boats have APRS location beacons too.

Same system got 70cm radio on weekend, and there service area is about
15-20 km in radius.  Experimenting continues...
