         Gee, I'd sure like to have either solar or else a wind 
generator to run my ham and computer stuff!  But I won't trade my 
DGPS for it, HI!

         Actually, the DGPS doesn't come into play with APRS, I only 
watch it on the GPS on my dash.  I think the only way for anyone else 
to know I am using DGPS would be if I set the HamHUD to output the 
RMC string instead of the "WinAPRS-style" position.
