[OZAPRS] ZL 6m bandplan

Hi All can I ask a question why would we want to use 6M for APRS? If one
reads Bob's WB4APR's web page APRS is about a "single channel" for all
amateur radio information. I can see we need HF where there is no VHF
coverage but for 6M I can't see what more it has to offer apart from
just occupying more of the spectrum

Your Job, Andrew ;-)
Buy this......
You will a need a few other bits, pick 'em up on your way home, from
Spend a few nights in the comfort of your own home, building it on 
your kitchen table.
IF you are having trouble assembling the bits, fitting the batteries 
etc, these guys can help.
Thats the easy bits done ;-)
Using a slingshot won't launch it high enough, chucking it off your 
house roof won't work either.
So......phone up NASA at Cape Canaveral.
See IF you can get someone on the next Space Shuttle mission
to take it onboard, as carry on baggage ;-)
Tell them to simply throw your Sat out the Space Shuttle toilet 
window, just before it docks with ISS
Mission accomplished!
