No problem. I'm sometimes a week behind, but don't have an excuse for 
it!

I'm probably just jealous that I don't have DGPS! Like I said, I
wouldn't want to discourage someone from using it. I just think that for
"general APRS use" it just isn't needed. However if someone is equipped,
why not? I've got an RTrak beaconing completely on solar power right
now... because it gives me pleasure! For regular use, I'll just connect
a battery.
