Hi Geoff

I did find the stuff from you (Via DOM).
Its a bit of a long story as to why it never went in all that time ago, but short story...I have programmed the EPROMS and got them ready. After a final tweak of the radios I will make a trip and install them .....RGN will be 1st as its a 10min drive for me.  Both TNC's are TinyTNC2's and the Radios are M120's in a 2RU case, with all LEDs transposed to the front case.  I have cut folded diploes to freq and have the feeders ready to go.....just need some good weather and give myself a day off work :)

Are there digipeaters at RHR and RGN already?
That was one of the projects that I was trying to push when I was looking after things in Sydney but never got any traction.

If CORRECTLY CONFIGURED digipeaters are placed on RHR and RGN, NO IGATE would be required at all.
(I have the original UIDigi configurations that we prepared for RHR and RGN if you would like them)

Traffic hitting RGN would digi through 1RGI and be picked up by the VK1 IGate, and traffic hitting RHR would digi off 2US and be picked up by the Sydney IGate.  You certainly don't want to push anything out onto RF in the area, as there is already traffic being gated out via 2US and 1RGI, and the path that the IGates are using to transmit the data would mean that RHR/RGN would be included in the distribution of that traffic.

Hell to you all.

I am after advice for setting up APRS IGATE & Digipeaters.

This will be to fill in the big Black Hole between Mittagong, Goulburn, ½ way to Yass from Goulburn and Lake George.
These are all locations that have very limited access to other stations.
I would like to Setup a IGATE on a Linux server to pass all the data to and from the internet

VK2RHR < - - - > VK2RGN < - - - > VK2TDB

RGN can see both RHR &TDB
HJA(IGATE Location) can see RGN

I would like to set the system up to not increase traffic on RGI or any Sydney Digi's but push all the traffic back through the local IGATE.

Thanks in advance
