Have a look at this packet
this is what aprsd made of
mention the rectangle-sign at the end where the
longtitude is encoded in Mic-E. The rectangle sign is
the ASCII-character 127 (DEL) it gets converted into a
(SPACE) which is, in my opinion, not defined in the
Mic-E-format at all.
This results in displaying a false-position on for
example findu.com normally the (DEL)-sign means the
longtitude is 9° or 99° East. With the (SPACE)
findu.com interprets it as 104° (for my packet).
This packet-mangling seems to happen with every aprsd
in our area but not many are complaining about this
issue beacause there are not many people on 9 or 99
degrees longtitude, obviously.
I don't like to drive somewhere in Ansgarsk in Russia
