         I had a similar experience in February 2003 with my HamHUD and 
KPC-3.  Seems a particular station was causing them both to lock up.  Never 
did find an answer, although examples of the offending packets seemed to be 
a combining of an APRS ID packet, but with position info added.  That 
station has since apparently gone off the air, a search of FINDU gives no 
info at all.
