54kms to VK2RCC-1, then say 200km to VK2RTM-1, say 160km to VK2RTZ-1 and
another 30kms to VK2vk-5


All up nearly 450kms.

Currently camping in Mendooran NSW. Using my HT Kenwood TH-D72 with the
Kenwood supplied rubber duck I am getting my APRS packets into VK2RCC-1 over
a distance of 54.1km using 500mW with the HT just sitting on the table


Using the 2m whip on my caravan I am consistently getting into VK2RCC-1
using only 50mW.


Not bad I would have thought,
