No, I don't remember where you put it, and can't find it on aprs.org, either, 
but years ago when you released the source code I did download it and still 
have what I downloaded in my files.  It consisted of 5 ".txt" files (no idea 
why they were not ".bas", but they're clearly BASIC code) called Aprs5v.txt, 
Aprs5w.txt, Aprs5x.txt, Aprs5y.txt and Aprs5z.txt.  I have no record of
any zip file or any other information to tell me where I got the stuff.

Googling, I also found these same five files here, mixed in with lots of other 
stuff copied from your web site:

Perhaps that is what you're looking for?

This stuff must have been on aprs.org once upon a time, but if it's still 
there there are no links to it that I can find easily.
