   I was wondering along those same lines...

WHile at Dayton, I succumbed to an impulse and bought a refurbished 
Peetbros. Ultimeter  500 station, with the intention of integrating it 
into my xastir aprs implementation.  Where can I find info on the proper 
location and calibration of sensors so that my observations can 
contribute to the collective knowledge rather than confuse?
