Icons and SSIDs are not the same. I just want to follow the
convention for SSIDs. My HT's Icon is already set for the little
running man (there didn't appear to be a walking man, which would have
been more accurate).
I'm especially curious regarding the D-STAR stuff. Since my ID-51A+
will send position reports via DPRS into the larger APRS
infrastructure, do I use -5 ("Other networks (Dstar, Iphones,
Androids, Blackberry's etc)") or "-A through -Z for Dstar" since my
position reports aren't, in fact, going into the system via AX.25?
