Apparently the PPI-GEOLOCATION spec was developed by an employee of Harris, Jon Ellch.

So, maybe it's best to contact him or Harris to get the specs. Unfortunately the link to the "supporting material" is dead.

I was able to reach out to the SPEC author and he provided me with the latest SPEC document, it's currently in PDF format - how can we best archive it in the Wireshark repository and/or wiki such that other members in the community may have access to it?

Best way would be to create an entry for PPI-GEOLOCATION on and attach the file to that entry, provided the author of the spec allows pbulic publishing the document.
