*** Yes, do *not* change the APK001 or your packets will become private
and not seen by anyone else unless they have the same matching UNPROTO.  

*** Also, the "SB" is not needed in APRS for the STATUS which is included
on every position packet.  BUT if you send an APRS "message" using the MSG
key, then we have asked that you send it as a Bulletin instead of a
private message so everyone else will see it.  In this case send the
Message "to" BLN1 or BLN2 or BLNn etc...
