It's NOT DMS (Degrees-Minutes-Seconds)!
It's the GPS standard of DDMM.mm (Degrees, Minutes and decimal Minutes) APRS
just uses the lat/long values as-is the way they come out of a standard
Note that there is a delimiter of "period" between the whole and decimal part
of minutes, but not between the degrees and minutes.
