I just added the ability to transmit via a KISS TNC and now I realized
that I need to support a configurable path over which to transmit.
After that, I suspect I need to add configurable commands to tell the
TNC to enter/exit KISS mode for those TNCs that don't stick there across
power-ups (I know my Alinco TNC wants it). With that in place, it could
act as a receive-only IGate. Then I'll start tracking "local" "recent'
stations on the RF to enable a message-transmitting IGate from -IS to
-RF (3rd party packets). Wow, seems like there's a lot to do, but I
really want to get a version out for those interested in playing with
the RF side of things too!

This is part of the APRS 1.1 Spec Addendum you can see at:
I'm considering supporting the ability to beacon a "destination
waypoint" as well as interpret them and draw the lines that are
described. I don't know how many other APRS clients do this, but it's
part of the published spec, so I might as well support it! Who knows, I
might even make it part of the Poll's () "slow beacon" mode!
Oh, and another preview of things to come is that I'm designing a
"coordinate picker" dialog that will embed the OpenStreetMap with pan
and zoom to allow you to home in on and set a coordinate. It'll still
support a variety of manually-entered coordinates, but you'll be able to
see where you entered or enter what you see. - Thoughts?
