Ron's idea of an HF Gate in Alice Springs is great.
Doe anyone know of an amateur in that area of the world that would be

He would need to have 24/7 internet access and good HF packet skills. It
be possible for some of the HF radio equipment to be supplied to the
on loan, specifically for the APRS Gate.
