Hi,

I've updated the machine-readable APRS device identification index to 
contain mic-e type codes, too. Plus the latest tocalls.txt additions. The 
data is available in YAML, JSON and XML files for relatively easy 
integration in applications. If you'd like to have your application or 
service identify APRS devices, and don't fancy converting tocalls.txt + 
mic-e-types.txt to code by hand, this might be just the thing for you.
