Aprx is an APRS specific Digipeater and iGate.
It supports multiple KISS-TNCs on serial ports  and listening
to any kernel AX.25 network interfaces.
Additional features include a built-in "erlang-monitor" to analyze
activity level of radio channels.
This software requires a valid (and unique) ham radio callsign to
operate fully and is therefore useful mainly for licensed radio
