It's supposed to be being distributed with xastir, but I haven't
checked lately. If not, I'll get a copy off the laptop in our comms
trailer next time I see that laptop. It's called RINO.CGI .
Basically, it uses GPSMAN to query a "base" rino for all waypoints,
then if (and only if) one moves it will be converted to an aprs
position. To allow for polling, some rino units are named
APRSyourcallsign , and this program will remove the APRS portion and
transmit an object called "yourcallsign". The last revision of it did
the machine readable DAO format as I recall.

In theory there is no difference between practice and theory.
