Data Format without location information

I am trying to setup Tracking Server to monitor seismic sensors that transmit a very simple ascii message without location data.  This is what the message format looks like:


The first two digits are constant, if a device activation occurs it will always have !6 at the beginning of the message.  The next two digits in the message are the identification of the device from 01 to 64.  The final digit is the type of activity and may be one of a variety of ascii characters.  Can this be parsed to something usable to Tracking Server with Tracking Server I do I need to come up with some custom application to make this usable?  My coding skills are ancient so please be gentle.
