I wonder if VK2TGB-7 parks his vehicle in a garage and the GPS losses lock
I know the most trackers have a setting to only transmit on valid GPS.
On a different note why do you need to beacon every 2 minutes when
VK2TGB-7 tends to jump around when stationary.
Actually look at http://aprs.fi/info/?call=VK2TGB-7
over 14000 km ???
Its getting worse as time progresses ?
