Interesting... I think there may be a screwed-up igate in Portugal
that is mangling Mic-E packets.
Yesterday I was testing the track routines for a new version of
APRSpoint, and was watching a CT1 seemingly driving around the high
plains of eastern Colorado. The track was completely off any roads in
the area. Af first I thought it might be a farm machine in a field, but
the speed was far too great (50-70 MPH). Periodically the track line
would do a great circle "hyper-jump" to a location in Portugal for one
posit and then jump back to eastern Colorado, USA.
As I write this, I am watching CT1EIZ-9 speeding off-road through the
grasslands of the eastern Colorado at 87 MPH at an elevation of 135
feet. (The high plains of eastern Colorado are about 5000 feet --
Denver, CO is known as the "Mile High City")
A screen cap from UIview showing this is here:
Note that this is a 1400 x 900 pixel screen cap from a W-XGA wide-angle
screen covering the metro Denver/Boulder, Colorado area - you will see
me in the upper left corner of the screen -- you may have to scroll to
see the suspect station in the lower right corner.
