Thanks for the tip. All new additions to the symbol tables are being made
in the NEW SYMBOLS link on the aprs.org/symbols.html page.
I just made this addition for the WATER symbol:
/w = Water Station or other H2O
\w = flooding (or Avalanche/slides)
Aw = Avalanche
Gw = Green Flood Gauge
Mw = Mud slide
Nw = Normal flood gauge (blue)
Rw = Red flood gauge
Sw = Snow Blockage
Yw = Yellow flood gauge
This was at the suggestion of the FEMA Tech Director just recovering from
their severl flooding events in Louisana and NC.
