Tactical Callsigns

We've had tactical callsign support for a couple of weeks now but I've moved it to the tools window. Before tactical callsign support was under the Options menu where you could specify a list of callsigns and their translated tactical calls through a commas and pipe separated list. Now in order to use tactical callsign support you must have an account and be logged in. The advantage is that your callsign list will be saved to your username and password instead of your browsers cookies. Whatever browser you happen to use in the future now all you must do is login and your tactical list of callsigns becomes active.

Under the tactical callsign list any calls listed will be automatically detected and displayed on the map with their associated tac callsign. This list can also be used to see when a station is actually advertising packets on the APRS network.

    I have an account and when logged in I added tactical callsign for a moving object. When it then updates the next time, the test caption on the icon goes blank rather than putting the tac callsign up. Any idea what I might be doing wrong?
