Today is a semi-holiday in the United States, it marks Martin Luther King Day but unlike in Germany many stores and businesses are open. I had planned on taking another day off work and visiting Jamestown and Yorktown, but it was so cold that opted to stay aboard. I was dressed for winter and the heating system had no chance to keep interior temperatures warm. I am so happy to be able to head into the clubhouse in the afternoons and taking a nice hot Finnish sauna to get the chill out. I worked for hours trying to sort out the NMEA wiring with no success. This is wiring that sends a signal from the GPS device to things like my SSB and VHF Radio so that they have position data. This is important when sending a DSC message on the radio or when hitting the "PANIC" button as it will automatically send the current position along with the distress message.
