Hi Guys,
               I have been running APRS on a number of HF Freqs over a
number of years and of late I have noticed 
that some of these APRS freqs are starting to be over run by other digital
modes. Eg: RTTY, PSK, Oliva, FBB forwarding, CW

If we don't populate these section very soon we will loose out and then
struggle to hold on to them.

What is the solution you may ask, I will suggest a a couple

Locate APRS Beacons on freqs that are not that well populated in your area

Decrease your beacon times by 5 or 10 minutes to a min of 15 mins 

Pick odd Beacon times like 7, 21, or 39 but don't use 15, 30, 45 past the

Increase your power out by 5 watts I hear a few weak beacons.

Just some suggestions
