Let me know if he is coming to Kuranda (just out of Cairns). There are
no APRS services in Cairns and surrounds apart from mine for Kuranda. It

You might also wish to mention to him that there is an IRLP node in
Cairns and normally one here as well although mine has had some problems
lately which I am trying to sort out.
