[aprssig] SiRF Star III receivers for $50

The new SiRF Star III-based receivers from Deluo work great - they're
way more sensitive than the older Sony units - but apparently the
factory screwed up on the latest shipment and put male mini-DIN
connectors on them rather than female.
This means that they won't work with any of the adapters, but the
receivers are still perfectly good. I've got around 50 on hand right
now, and instead of shipping them back for rework I negotiated a price
reduction on them and I'm selling them at the discounted price of $50 each.
If you don't mind a little soldering to get it to a usable connector,
this is probably the best deal you're going to find on these things.
For tracker purposes, you can wire up a female DB9 with green -> pin 2,
red -> pin 4, and black -> pin 5.
If you're one of the few customers that got one of these before the
mistake was discovered, let me know (and include your order number) and
I'll give you a credit for the price difference.
