I used [Bidirectional UTM-WGS84 converter for python](https://pypi.python.org/pypi/utm) but I'm certainly interested in using more ROS code.  Thank you.  I will take a look.  I appreciate the code example.

Ideally, what would I do with the Point?  I'm thinking...
1.  Publish it (as is).
2.  Use it along with the secondary antenna projections to compute a Point for the secondary antenna.
3.  Publish a Point for the secondary antenna.

I suspect that I should use tf2 for the operations in #2.  It's going to take me awhile to get up to speed there.  Is having the second point helpful, though?  Or should I just use the data to publish Pose?

I would love to find a _simple_ example that's similar to what I'm doing.  Pointers will be appreciated.
