09/09/2005: New APRS UIDIGI Node VE1PKT, Hammonds Plains, NS.
Thanks to the work of VE1YZ the new node will soon be in its permanent location
to extend coverage of the MARCAN APRS network from Halifax down the
South shore.

07/09/2005: If you wish to connect to the Yarmouth APRS server, the following 
address should work, although there has been a problem of late with the IP 
address changing more than once a day.
STATUS page    http://ve1gx.no-ip.org:14501
Client connect  ve1gx.no-ip.org:1313 (or 10151 buffered)

07/04/2005: Welcome new Yarmouth APRSd server VE1GX-1

06/24/2006: Some of you may have noticed that our UIDIGI nodes have an "S"
symbol instead of the "U". This is to reflect the use of the new N-n
settings. In the beacon you will also see something like "/R,W,W3,NS".
This shows that the node will digipeat the following paths:
RELAY WIDE WIDEn-n NSn-n
The NSn-n is a province wide path that is included for conformity but 
not having much practical use. Our other provinces have NBn-n and PEn-n.  
The paths RELAY or WIDE are still available to aid visitors and allow an 
easy transition but we hope to have everyone using the standard path 
by next summer.
 
Please note the new recomended path settings for ALL stations is WIDE3-3.

See the link below for the full details.
