I'm going to try to splice into the gps->APRS signal.  It's a pretty dicey operation, so I'm not entirely sure it'll work and it really needs to get tested before we go anywhere, which means I must have it tonight.

There's a non-zero chance that there could be something on the hack shelf at Noisebridge that is this small, but that's not much above zero.  I am really kicking myself for waiting to get this since I probably could have gotten it in from Mouser if I ordered it on Monday like I should have done as soon as I realized I needed it.
