Invisioned or specified?

I recall that some time ago that Scott (N1VG) made a change in the OT1  
firmware to put the altitude at the end of the packet. He changed it  
back to an earlier position when people (including me) complained that  
with altitude at the end, we could not see it on the D700 screen.

Here is an example from our last balloon flight.
Lat/Long,icon,course/speed/Altitude, voltage, Temperature, Sat. info,

A=096039 08.7V 19C HDOP01.1 SATS10 TABEL octagon P2
I know this is not a repeater object but trackers don't do repeater  
objects.

Or have I missed the point?
