G'day Terry and all,

I can see VK3MY all the time, its a really good signal here. Also a 
handful of VK2s and VK4s, even some vk3 mobiles!

I was having trouble with dial frequency but you've shone a light on 
it... I didn't realise that even tho all 300bd TNCs had a 200Hz split, 
not all used the same tone pair! I'm using a AGWPE/soundcard TNC and the 
dial frequency is 300Hz out! Dont know if its the FT107 calibration or 
the tone pair now!

I do have trouble pinging most... don't know if I'm not getting out or 
they don't respond to pings.

Terry, a little off topic, did you get all your crop in? Most round here 
got all but their seed in before the thunderstorms came. There's a fair 
bit of shot and sprung grain around!!!
