I wonder how many APRS clients treat only the _ in the primary table as 
a "weather station" even though the alternate table _ is defined as a 
"No. WX Stn"?  I've just fixed my APRS parser to treat primary, 
alternate, and overlayed _ symbols as weather stations with respect to 
parsing weather data from them.

Thanks for the clarification and trigger for me to go see how I'd be 
handling an overlayed weather station.
