Richard and I have talked about going 9600BD in Melbourne for a while, but
dont know if there is enough interest in it, as the 70CM network gets very
few users at the moment.
See what I mean:
This is dispite the fact that we have tried to expand the content, add
features ( Info Kiosk/SF message server and carry all of OZ/NZ TFC and DX
cluster as well.
I do use it for Mobile myself going to and from the Greensborough to the
City and around most of Melbourne , without problems. Most of the North
east of Melbourne are covered up to the city, I usually get about 10 to
posts per trip or more..
I would be prepared to go to 9600BD, I have both the TNC and the Radio to
so, but its hard to justify upgrading the Digi vk3my-2 ( Sorry Ross i
even asked you yet!!) and installing a node on VK3CV if there not that
Would be interested in your thoughts on if the investment/ expansion would
