Scott,
Great stuff! Could the t2 scripting support limiting the position
ambiguity based on location ? Basically, I'd like to report only
within 1 mile (by replacing numbers with spaces in the coordinates)
when I'm parked at a sensitive site, like an unadvertised backup EOC
or a served agency's field location.
Steve.
