Hi Will:

Could you provide some detail concerning the new "special WIDEn-n features"?

Have you ever considered allowing for the user to enter their altitude for 
transmission in the APRS packet? Altitude is very interesting information 
when observing weather data.

Thanks for the firmware work concerning the new AAG weather head.

Scott - N0LNE

> 1) If the TAI603 gets unplugged, I don't report errors, I report 0C.  Not

> 2) I did lock up the TAI603 once, but so far only once and unplugging it

> 3) Other than #1, I have not seen any erroneous data reported, so looking
> good.
> 4) There are a significant number of communication errors logged (see

> 4a) With some more work, I hope I can reduced the number of errors with
