Dear Keith,

"I may be lost, but I know exactly where I am!"

If you are able to do that because of APRS, you should thank
Bob, WB4APR.

The tone of your post of offending to ME as well and I am not
even a part of this thread.

I doubt Bob was being critical...    probably more like doing
20 things at once, like building satellites...   and you just took it
that way.
