~ or | entered as text in APRS Messenger are filtered out before sending
as the spec says that they shouldn't be sent over APRS as they are used
as control characters for Kantronics TNCs.
I was under the impression that other APRS authors filtered them as well
but I'm ready to be corrected.
By the way Raynet Messenger is another program based on APRS Messenger
which uses a similar message format allowing CRC-16 checksum messages to
be digipeated but allows a message length up to 2000 characters. The
region of the world where it gets most use for emergency comms is South
America so the lack of the tilde character doesn't appear to be a
problem as far as I know.
