What device is outputting the data to your GPS receiver. I have a T2-135. It
outputs the callsign-SSID as the waypoint name to a GPS receiver using Garmin
format. If I tell the GPS receiver to navigate to that waypoint, it doesn't
care if the waypoint moves every time an updated position is received
from that station. I've only tried it with a Garmin 76S so far, but will try
it with another receiver with a larger display when I get a cable made
up for it.
