M120...It's aliiiiiiiiive!

Thanks to Gary, WD0BIA, I realized that the Motorola RJ-45 is wired different from a regular network jack. Turns out I had my wiring reversed. I put a new connector on and it works like a champ!!

I now have a dedicated APRS radio. I still need to run power for a permanent installation in the truck so until then I'll be working off some 12V batteries but I'm moving forward now. I couldn't be happier!
