GPS _ FoxHunt
In response to Ken's question about iPhone apps, I have found one a while back called FoxHunt and have used it once (when my Walston signal was really spotty) with success (I had to go by an inflatable raft to get the plane, but that's a story for another day...). It was developed by a guy who is, "a hard-core amateur radio enthusiast and former CTO of Nokia". It's basically google maps with the ability to plot headings. With enough headings from different geographic locations, you are able to see the intersection on the map (and get directions to the plane on top of that!). Here's the link:
Unfortunately, there has not been an app update in a while which leads me to believe that the developer is no longer....developing... but it still serves its purpose.
GPS - Gaia
GPS apps on iphone:
Ken give Gaia GPS a try. It allows you to download maps etc. and also allows for waypoints and navigation to waypoints.
Can I suggest MotionX-GPS?
Spam Scanner did it
it appears that an email spam scanner used by some email providers, including Verizon may have been responsible for the "accidental" black listing of some SEN users. It may not be possible to fix this for those users with their current email address.
It is recommended that the person sign up again with a Gmail email address.
