[aprssig] GPS interference?

I can be fairly specific about where I had the problem in Denver -- I was on I-225, headed north, about a mile south of I-70.  I guess I'll have to check a map to locate Federal Heights.

I have a suspiciously low number of reports in the federal heights area,
but other than that it looks ok.
This is an old Trimble yellow thing, not Earthmate, but similar.  Needed a
mod to run from 12V and has to hear "ASTRAL" before it will work.
