It's interesting to take a look at the distances to digi's from 
VK7ZRO-15. Of the 7 entries that appear on the "Used Digipeaters" page 
at DB0ANF, the average distance is 1770km. If one weeds out the two "out 
of character" distances of 908km and 483km the average becomes 2200km. 
Regardless, distances around 1700km to 2200km appear to be ideal.

Makes one wonder about how useful a HF gate would be in Alice Springs, 
particularly for travellers around the coastal roads.
