[aprssig] Curious about bogus packets on Findu

Returned from a week long Illinois-Colorado trip last night (15 hrs straight through and I can't figure out why I'm not one giant ache) (:-)

For anyone wanting to look...or who cares.  It's no problem for me, just wondering.

Noticed some error lat long locations on Findu's Long term tracking.   I've not seen this before.
I save some of these images to show with my APRS talks.


The one in North Western Pa is early in the time period.
The one in SE Wisconsin (and the one below the track in Illinois) is late in the trip and is probably a latitide-only glitch from one of the packets at the same longitude.  I figured this out by changing the findu &start time in Steve's URL.
However, it is difficult for me to tell looking at the raw data just which packet it is.
I also see some raw packets with the TOCALL (APK101) instead of the Mic-e data and don't know enough to understand that.

I couldn't see these glitches on aprs.fi.
