Re: [amsat-bb] Sending POSIT DATA to a THD7 walkie

... tell me what the UNPROTO and BTEXT message should look like for a
position of 60.18N and 11.47E? .. to show my position in clear text on
both the THD7 display  and on the APRS screen?

*** In your case, your latitude is 60 deg 11 mins so use:

*** Lets say you want to include your Name Mouland as your status text
*** Your longitude is 11 degrees 28 minutes so enter this in your

BTEXT: `'8!l -/Name is Molund

*** So here, you must change the last character in the UNPROTO TOCALL from
*** a P to a 0 to indicate you are in the eastern hemisphere:  So your
