The P700 is now back in service for aprs, with 5175 and 30m services 

I'm still working on getting the new 2m antenna in the air - still in 
the process of removing old hardware from the tower.

There will be intermittent disruption to the vk2tv Igate over the next
day or two as I change computers. I'm going back to my old P700 so I can
again return the Baycom USCC>4 card to service. The old clunker now uses
Debian 6 (net install without a GUI) to which I added the LXDE desktop.
The Baycom is an ISA card that required a kernel build to eliminate SMP
support. SMP cause IRQ conflicts and that locks the Baycom solid - think
days of DOS. ACPI doesn't fit favourably with it either!

The replacement antenna for 5175 (6dBd vertical) is still horizontal as
I continue to prepare the tower to receive it. If the rain stays away
that may happen later in the week.

The satgate will be restored once the new antenna is in service for 5175.
