Very nice Stephen,

There is probably the 100 degrees longitude offset in
the Mic-E beacon mangled.

Definitely a screwed up igate in CT among other things.  I'm now see
FOUR CT's in eastern Colorado about 50 miles south-east of Denver.
See this image:


You will probably see that they are all gated by CS1SEL. This IGATE
seems to replace the longitude, but does not drop characters and is
therefore not captured with my filter.




Didn't know there were that many Mic-E users in Portugal.   Now there are 7 "invaders" in eastern Colorado!

Here is a screen shot from APRSpoint - an APRS client that directly uses local MapPoint maps, either North America or Europe.
This application is actually a plugin that runs inside MapPoint itself -- the normal functionality of MapPoint (address lookups,
route planning, etc) remains while APRSpoint is running.

One nice feature of APRSpoint is that it can draw track lines for selected stations without add-ons.  I set it to track CT1EIZ-9 .
I suspect the track line shown will correspond perfectly to some major road in Portugal.
