I'll take your Hilux and raise you mine!!
I've got some more pics with the folding Moonraker HF antenna on the 
back, I'll get them up today sometime.
I run both VHF (HamHUD) and HF (TinyTrak3) APRS. HF coverage is quite 
good now with more gateway stations operating... but it's a different 
beast to VHF.
