Or you could just connect to the APRS-IS, capture a bunch of packets and
then see which packets aren't decoded properly. But beware that there are
a lot of packets floating around APRS-IS that aren't valid APRS. There are
also a lot of broken APRS decoders, especially for mic-e and base91
compressed format. Even findu doesn't properly decode speed or direction
in compressed packets.
