Thank you. Now I wonder how to recognize which of those 3 formats are 
used by a particular manufacturer. (Probably I am not going to purchase 
from Davis or Peet Bros, but rather something cheaper from European or 
Asian markets, and need to know what feature to look for, and what to 
ask the producer.) Secondly, if a format needs to be translated to one 
of those 3, is that a big issue for an APRS software author? Any view 
from YAAC?
