Interesting, what are you actually "T" ing together? GPS/VHF/? I thought you could only have 1 talker & 1 listener per circuit unless you had a multiplexer.

How did you get heatshrink over a single piece of terminated-at-both-ends wire?

Ahhh! the logger shhhh! Are the VHF/PC & logger just listening or does the VHF output DSC messages?
