Yep, that's an issue.  The big DB9 connector can be a pain (e.g. when  
you're trying to put together a small, lightweight tracker for a  
balloon.)  I was just pointing out that there are worse things than  
big connectors.  Between some problems at work (computers in high- 
density situations like server rooms) and at play (APRS mobile) I'm  
getting a real dislike for non-locking connectors.

I guess I should point out I'm not the Jason with the stuff for  
sale.  I think he (Jason ke4something) and I (Jason kg4something)  
have been confused before.  I know _I've_ been confused before. (:    
sorry, it's been a long couple of days...
