GPS test



For those not in Region 2, just listen to 1200 baud downlink on 145.825
look for the number of satellites in the $GPGGA sting.  Look for the
number "XX" after the ...,W,0,XX,0.0... as shown below:

$GPGGA,225512.80,3858.9514,N,07629.3200,W,0,XX,0.0,-40.7,M,0.0,M,,*5E

That is the number of satellites in lock.  We saw "01" on the Internet
feed coming from over Europe at about 1210 UTC or so...
