Hello, I am trying to decipher:

cbapakcb.brpydurpyfbcb.ocqy..b lrcbyydp..;.pry,r,.oyrb.y,.byf y,rurpyfbcb.lrcbyy,rocqydp

from a geocache puzzle Temporary Tension. It also refers to Taplen robotics.http://www.geocaching .com/seek/cache_details.aspx?g uid=888b67b1-91be-47ca-9cff-c4 a72c858c46

I have tried letter freq y>b>r>c and identified the digraphs etc. cb by dp urpyfbcb lrcbyy and tried simple substitution but can make some words but the rest is gibberish.

If there is a keyword, would it be 2 6 or 8 letters long? I have tried taplen and planet to no avail.

Any pointers would be appreciated. Thanks.

Have you tried Longitude on the cache page with 37.049 and latitude 41 41.183

The rest don't make sense in UTM.
