    I did a quick check, and it appears to have data (on the web site) 
from all over the world!

    Now -- I would like to track the Ruby Princess via APRS -- our 
oldest son is "working" on that ship, playing trombone!  But I can't 
figure out how to get www.aprs.fi to show me the Ruby Princess, it just 
seems to default to the Helsinki area, and I haven't figured out a data 
feed to UI-View yet, either.

    Anybody on here that might help?
