A local iGate would be the answer im thinking.  What iGate setup are you guys running??  I was looking at aprsd but thought id ask the question 1st.
Id like the iGate to have comms in both directions not just 1 way.  Open to your thoughts.

Hi Justin and Carl,

Looking at the raw packets on aprs.fi<http://aprs.fi>, 2RGN-1 is occasionally making it directly into 1RGI-1 as well as 2RUW, however contact is extremely erratic which is a shame.

2012-04-01 01:50:03 EST: VK2RGN-1<http://aprs.fi/?c=raw&limit=&call=VK2RGN-1>>APNU19,VK1RGI-1*<http://aprs.fi/?c=raw&limit=&call=VK1RGI-1>,WIDE2-1,qAR,VK2YYZ-5<http://aprs.fi/?c=raw&limit=&call=VK2YYZ-5>:!3445.60SS14945.71E#PHG4630/W2 Digi   Goulburn

The last time a packet was received was 1:00am this morning via 2RUW and my igate.

2012-04-02 01:03:05 EST: VK2RGN-1<http://aprs.fi/?c=raw&limit=&call=VK2RGN-1>>APNU19,VK2RUW-1*<http://aprs.fi/?c=raw&limit=&call=VK2RUW-1>,WIDE2-1,qAR,VK2HIM-1<http://aprs.fi/?c=raw&limit=&call=VK2HIM-1>:!3445.60SS14945.71E#PHG4630/W2 Digi   Goulburn

On Friday and over the weekend I watched a few mobile stations leave Sydney/ Canberra and travel via Goulburn with not many packets making it to the internet via 2RGN, again this is a shame as I'm suer a lot of hard work has been put in by Justin.

Since access to the higher TX site isn't possible, perhaps if Justin ran a RX only igate in Goulburn it would give the expected  reliability results?

It looks like vk2rgn-1 is going via vk2ruw-1 into the vk2him-1 igate.  I'm not seeing it via Ginini (vk1rgi) at all which suggests Ginini can't hear it.

What digipeater path are you using?  Ginini will respond to wide2-* and sensw2-*, so you should have both of those installed.
