SNMP syslocation field for GPS coordinates, and use with automation tools

If you think that's bad, the public copy of the entire Industry Canada
licensed frequency database (for every type of radio system, nationwide)
comes in a giant space delimited text file with many database fields
truncated when they export it from whatever ancient database system they're
using. Nevermind that the owner/control entity fields and many other fields
also contain spaces.

The FCC version which is much more sane and usable is a pipe delimited CSV
format file with no fields cut off.
