>> Please use WHERE going forward.
I just took WHERE for a brief test drive and it's working as expected. Thanks.
One possible short cut came up - you could remember the last callsign
for future queries from one client.
I asked for "dis kathtc' - it worked.
It could remember the 'ka7htc' for me and thus if I queried again -
I'd only have to do 'dist' and not spell out the 'dist ka7htc'.
This is trivial on a computer keyboard - but on an APRS radio - it's a
lot of button pushes.
Again the note on moibles... 'WHERE' is a big callsign. WHR or WHE
or WR would be helpful abbreviations.

Do you have this documented on a web page or maybe the APRS wiki?
I'm going to suggest that WHERE and SMSGTE get added to awesome
APRS-Queries document at:
Thanks for the work making a new useful tool.
