      Sure… Though I prefer the single line per symbol approach for the human visible definitions

       

       

      Ø  Am I OK to release the URL for the page, for authors to comment on file format and  distribution methods?

      This is about how we construct a common format for the symbols and distribution thereof, not what the symbols should be themselves.

      To attempt to future proof changes in symbols and tocalls, and make updates easy, even after an author gone to other things.

      Just wanted to check the initial page was ok for release?

      I just added two new potential symbol definitions (though no one will see them until all symbols in all clinents are updated.  But these were easy as overlays)

       

      Jet Ski [Js] is a ship with an overly J (for now)

      Ham Club [C-] is a house with an HF beam and overlay C (for now).

       

      See http://aprs.org/symbols.html

       

      where these days new symbols can only be added as overlay combinatinos to existing symbols though individual clients can expand them to new Icons if desired.  They will be documented in the overlay lists on this page:

       

      http://aprs.org/symbols/symbols-new.txt

       

      Though a group is forming to consider such combos.
