Hi Darryl,
I am working with local clubs to set up a digi for APRS in the Gladstone
district in Central Queensland.
I have an 828 which is running fine on 145.175.  We have antennae etc.
The site is a solar site and as such we have to limit the current draw. It
is a good site with good coverage to the major north-south highway, the
coast for cruising yachts, and the local district.
I need a suitable TNC/controller for the digi.
I have tried the RX_RLY12 PIC based version but it will only repeat the
tracker.mic-e/pic-e beacons and ignores all others.
The power limitations prevent the use of a computer running one of the
software packages. 
Using an dm700 as a digi would be an over kill.
Can you advise on which way to go now.
