 This is the typical protocol used by UKHAS members to transmit GPS data balloon to ground on the unlicensed bands. Parsing is handled by [[http://​habitat.habhub.org/​|habitat]] which can be configured to almost practically any format you can come up with, provided the string starts with $$CALLSIGN, end with a newline ('​\n'​),​ and contains printable ASCII characters. Fields are comma delimited. This is the typical protocol used by UKHAS members to transmit GPS data balloon to ground on the unlicensed bands.
