Re: Different location on APRSIS32 and APRS.fi
aprs.fi has 35 15.00S 149 25.00Etoggle quoted messageShow quoted text

That's a pretty big (and visible) difference, I agree. Now, we can only assume that the 710 is correct because it's got the GPS.
aprs.fi has one of your 710 packets as:

My parser for the same packet gives:
MicE(1) VK2JNG-12 (146.950MHz}G'Day to all APRS users.=)
MicE VK2JNG-12 (146.950MHz}G'Day to all APRS users.=)

Hop = VK2JNG-12
Hop = S5QLZL
Hop = VK1RGI-1*
Hop = WIDE2-2
Hop = qAR
Hop = VK1KCM-5
It is apparent to my (programmer) eyes, that aprs.fi and my parser (based on open source Tracker2 code) came up with a different interpretation of the Mic-E packet from the 710. I'll be diving into the packet with the spec in hand to do a manual conversion and will get back to you later with the results.
Lynn (D) - KJ4ERJ - Thankful for this report so one of us can fix things!
PS. I'm acting on the assumption that aprs.fi is showing the location that you know to be correct because you're there, right?
That is correct. Beacons were sent from Kenwood 710 as stated in my first message.
