I am new to packet and APRS.  Using a Garmin etrex Vista gps interfaced
with TH-D7. My location on findu.com is appears about 100 miles due
north of my actual location. This has happened each time I have checked
my indicated location with my actual. My gps seems to be working fine
and receives other stations and I think is plotting them accurately.
