[OZAPRS] Love that HF

Today I made a 500km round trip to a station north of Orroroo where my 
gliding club is operating for a few days.   It's a pretty isolated area 
- even the mobile phone services give up soon after Orroroo.   I used 
both HF and VHF APRS - both TT3's running "in series" from the one GPS, 
with an IC-706 on HF, and a Yaesu FT-1500 on 2 metres.

The HF track is here 

The 2 metre SSID was VK5ATN-8 and can be found from the same page.    
The digi coverage in that part of the world is very limited and this 
result was expected,  but HF (30m) worked extremely well.

My thanks to the HF stations elsewhere who gated my reports - six 
stations in all from my quick check.

Much appreciated :-)
