[aprssig] Tracking my trip

Ok, I now understand how dumb it was to set up the tracker that way. 
It switches to config 2 when I am moving and back to config 1 when 
I am stopped. Config 2 used the GPS for the location and config 1 used 
a preset location. What made it worse is all the stop and go traffic I 
hit. Made a 5 hour drive into a 9 hour drive. 

What is GIGO...

Well, there is a parameter in line that prevents drawing lines over a  
certain distance, turning it off shows a good example of why it is  
there, to remove garbage from outlying points.


In this case, looking at the raw data:


There seem to be periods of valid data interspersed with this

KB6FAS>APOT02,WIDE1-1,WIDE2-1,qAR,N6EX-3:!3333.00N/11733.00WR 12.8V

The round-number data suggests manually entered data...
