Careful calling these ACK's:  ACK's are a specific type of packet
sent during messaging only.  ;-)

As far as some of the MYPOS not being heard, the local noise floor
in your vehicle may be a bit high while the engine and associated
vehicle electronics are up and running.  You often don't hear as
well while mobile as you would sitting still with the engine off or
of course from a fixed station with few local noise sources.

It's not surprising that you don't receive each packet that was
digipeated while you're driving.
