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.
