[aprssig] Deluo GPS Lite altitude limit

I've been wondering that myself.  Haven't got it in a good spot to hook up a
meter yet.  120mW would be most excellent.

The GLL thing isn't an issue for tracker use.  The OpenTracker will take it
if it gets it, but it doesn't need it.

Further on this device, the specs say:

Power supply :
   Power consumption:
   +5.0VDC and up to 9.0V DC
   Typical (tracking): 120mW

They say 120mW which would be only  24mA!    Can this be possbile.   I
noticed in the feature grid comparing all  three of Deluo's offerings
that the other two were 120-160 mA. I wonder if this spec is a type and
that they really mean 120mA,  not 120mW......
