Yes, it is GPS data, though it's GPS-A mode rather than the normal GPS. This part is the transmitted position: 3755.00N/08433.42W; the rest of the data is probably related to the specific Icom radio in use (an Icom IC-31A, to be precise), which includes information on the user of the radio (AI4W is the user's callsign). I don't have any links to documents on this, so if someone else in the group does, I hope they will provide them.

I am a new DV Dongle user and am pretty sure that this is GPS. Now how can I make this info meaningful. Could you direct to some literature on the subject.
Thanks in advance.
