A friend and I will be taking part in a Gliding Competition at
Chinchilla over Easter and will be carrying MT8000 trackers in the two
I'll have a portable digi on the ground at Chinchilla with a 5/8
collinear antenna at just a few meters elevation. I won't be able to
gate to the internet, but hopefully the sailplanes will stay high
enough for good position reporting throughout the competition via
existing digis and igates. I'll be testing on Good Friday.
The trackers will display the call signs VHZJC and VHIUR with VK4MDX
in the status/beacon text. Should be fun to watch.
