But then everyone gets the same position, the
position of the antenna on the roof.  

My proposal for indoor tracking at Dayton is in 
"vicinity tracking" where we put nearly deaf low-power 
digis in each room.  With no change on the part of
the trackers, once indoors, they start getting reported
via the room digis and since we have full path
tracing, then the individual is located in the room
of the first digi that heard him.

This was my plan back in 1998 or so.  Its all 
written up in my vicinity.txt file.  These digis are
called BOX-N digis and whever APRSdos sees
a packet that comes in via a "box-N digi" it
ignores the actual posit and plots it as a vicinity
plot in the vicniity (100 feet) of the box-N digi.
