Re: Different location on APRSIS32 and APRS.fi
I just looked at the packet in jFindu which matches APRSIS32's position report. The Mic-E packet content that jFindu is working from is:toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
VK2JNG-12>S5QLZL,VK1RGI-1*,WIDE2-2,qAR,VK1KCM-5:'M4l K\]146.950MHz G'Day to all APRS users.=
The character after the M4 is a 0x1c and the character before the K is a 0x1c. A space separates the 1 and 0x1c before the K.
findU.com computed the position as -35.18333 149.39999 which is 35 10.10S 149 24.00E The differences here could be rounding issues.
I am guessing that aprs.fi is not handling something quite right in its algorithm for Mic-E interpretation.
