Hi All,
The big race is over for another year. Some records tumbled.
I fitted a portable tracker (2w output) to the local rescue boat which has
the role of taking the mayor to each arriving yacht to hand over a
medallion and some brew from the race sponsor. The boat provides towing
and guidance to berths if needed.
I also installed a temporary repeater overlooking the harbour.
That worked well.
I was wondering if we could, now that we have a year to plan and prepare,
track some of the boats for the 2005 race.
I know this was tried a few years ago.  
What do you think? Given that here is no aprs infrastructure currently
between Brisbane and Gladstone, can we do it?
Could this be good WICEN Training?
