[aprssig] SKY1 - callsign? Wayne County, Ohio.

The current altitude shows a glitch of some kind, and the speed, course and 
altitude have been constant since (roughly) 2010-08-19-2300z. There's also a 
glitch that shows a position over the North Pole, and the Oklahoma positions 
also seem to be part of that glitch. If it's not a glitch, it could be someone 
fooling with the data. 


The poreps since 2331z have all been through N5CAT-12, which is shown as being 
in SoCal. I have a hard time believing that this station is picking up an FM 
signal from that distance, and none of the "local" APRS-IS injection points are 
picking it up.
