Following Stephen's explanation I've just uploaded a 1800 Hz version of 
APRS Messenger v2.33 to the webpage:


The other audio tones, 700, 1300 and 2100 Hz are also available.

APRS over PSK-63 activity is increasing daily in Europe and the US. It's 
a quick and cheap (free) way of getting on HF APRS. The amount of 
feedback I'm getting on the program is helping development. It already 
has a TCP/IP link to export HF APRS packets to map display on 
APRSISCE/32 and RadioMobile,  soundcard selection, selectable HF beacon 
rates, VHF / HF stations heard listboxes and a lot of improvements over 
the initial version. Over the next few weeks I'll add GPS input to allow 
mobile HF tracking over PSK-63.
