      There appears to be an error in the formula that the OT3 firmware (Ver 56132) uses to decode compressed positions. Here's the beacon coming through an OT3:

      VE6SLP-9>APOTC1,EDMNTN*,WIDE1*:!/3F\[1kbg> st/A=002178 12.5V 24C HDOP00.8 SATS10
      $PGRMW,VE6SLP-9,663,00AA,12.5V 24C HDOP00.8 SATS10*28

      and the same station coming through an OT2:

      VE6SLP-9>APOTC1,EDMNTN*,WIDE1*:!/3F\]1kbb> st 09.9V 13C HDOP01.3 SATS06
      $PGRMW,VE6SLP-9,0,00AA,09.9V 13C HDOP01.3 SATS06*24

      The math in the OT3 is putting the station south and east rather than the north and west where it actually is. All stations using uncompressed position beacons plot correctly.
