[aprssig] New GPS That Allows APRS POSIT Uploads?

My stock of GTRANS cables (the Kenwood style, anyway) got wiped out by 
the recent fire sale on 350s at Radio Shack.  More of the custom USB 
mini-B cables are in production in Taiwan now.  I'm going to look today 
at redoing some of the (much less popular) DB9 style GTRANS cables with 
the Kenwood connectors to fill orders.  At least I've got plenty of 
those in stock.

So be patient if you do order... it may take a week or more to get 
caught up.

BTW, I got a batch of other types of cables in today - I'll post links 
later, but one breaks out the DB9 connector on the FC-301/D radio to 
power leads (with optional Powerpoles) and a standard 6-pin mini-DIN 
packet connector.  The other does the same for the T2-equipped radio, 
but to a DB9 in the style of the OT2m.
