Hi Tim,

Do you have any HF APRS gear with you? If so, you could try 20m APRS 
which is on 14.103 LSB using 1600/1800 Hz tones. There's no-one in VK/ZL 
on there yet, but lots of activity in Europe and some in US. As soon as 
I get a new antenna raised, I'll be on "Net14" too. More info here: 

Surprised about the SPOT coverage. I thought it was supposed to be world 
wide. I recently got one myself for use overseas.

Has anyone got a Delorme Inreach to communicate with the aprs network similar to Spot ?
