I agree. The linear list of available symbol codes is rather lengthy and unwieldy for finding an appropriate code for beacons and objects in YAAC. Anyone have a better idea for how to organize all the options we're getting with the documented overlay meanings?

I agree with Frank. I would recommend I#.
The confusion is pretty valid; the symbol selection section in the Aprx manual is grossly inadequate; I'll now be updating it once the dust settles here.

I consider a high-digi that Igates to be primarily a digipeater that

also Igates. So, I# (digi with I overlay) would be the better choice in

my opinion.
