         Haha, no, that's my dumb tracker that I mentioned before.  It 
sends out packets like this:

KD5XB-9>APRS,KW5DX-15*,WIDE5-5,qAS,K5YM:$GPRMC,014230,A,3324.8943,N,09618.4224,W,56.2,119.1,210605,4.5,E,D*36 


         and, as Steve Dimse and I discussed back in January, these packets 
no longer indicate the original symbols in Findu.  Unfortunately, I can't 
change any of this stuff on my dumb tracker.
