Finally we have an Igate installed in Warwick Queensland.
Warwick is about 80KMs north of the QLD/NSW border on the New England Highway.
The DIGI is running on a temporary antenna just above roof height.
It is hoped to get the antenna to about 10 meters above the roof in
the near future.
The location is at the home of VK4HPW and unfortunately is in a bit
of a hollow.
Before the installation all APRS stopped at Cunninghams Gap. Now
there is reasonable coverage from about 10KMs south of the Gap until
well past Warwick.
If a higher site could be found then there would be a vast
improvement in the coverage.
What we need next is a couple of digi's further south to extend the
coverage another couple of hundred kilometres along the New England Highway.
