The aprs functionality will only work without using RSID TX, we will get 
chaos on the channels otherwise.
The wiki page is fairly accurate with respect to listening modes, and all 
are requested to keep it up to date.

To find out if you are being heard on a channel, use ping without RSID.

Default modes in EU are PSK250 for Intermar (e.g. 10148) and PSK500R for 
other servers (10147). The servers always beacon in the default mode.
In US I guess the default mode for aprs will be PSK250.

The mode table is at:
