Thanks for that comment.  And that is exactly why the original
APRS design provided for the transmission in every packet of the
degree of precision or lack there-of in every position.  ANd
also then the unequivocal display of that same degree of
precision or lack there-of on receipt to all viewers.

Thanks.  I think most of the follow-on APRS programs are
mature enough now that hopefully therer will be time to get
around to incorporating this important fundamental aspect
of APRS.

thanks for the comment
