I did not know ocean going buoys had cigarette lighters! ;-)

73....

Larry

Just had to throw that out there...



I just reduced the 60 mA of my GPS-18 to 40 mA by clipping out the LED in the
cigarette lighter plug.

Thats a power saving of 33% and is significant in our ocean going APRS buoy we
will be deploying soon.  I was amazed. (now I hope that the LED is not somehow
otherwise involved in the circuit.
We'll see.
