Thanks for that, Rob.  Initially, I was confused over long & lat, putting
them in the wrong blanks.

However, I still can't get APRSDroid to take a - sign.  Here's my position,
but that "-103" just won't go.

Tnx es 7 3
Earl

-103.22626 W (-103° 13' 35'' W)
Lat : 34.43071 N (34° 25' 51'' N)
QTH locator : DM84JK
