The more the merrier Peter, We all know Mark Kyle very well and watch his
trips north in the plane lots of times, am surprised he needs help to set it
up though usually he does all that sort of stuff himself 

Am guessing it will be running at his property to get access on the internet



PS: Get Mark to setup a HF IGATE as well  HI!!HI!!

I am helping a ham to get an iGate going for his property located between
Childers and Gin Gin.  He owns a light aircraft fitted with a tracker and
noticed his positions were not getting gated when in the vicinity.  So I
volunteered to help him put together a Raspberry TNC-PI setup.  It is on
test at the moment in the Brisbane area using 439.100 MHz (VK4EA-2 off-air
until it's sorted).

I have set it up to only reverse gate messages and objects within 250 kms,
and limited set of objects being mainly repeater objects (frequency 
identification for mobile operators).   it's transmit rate is less than 
7 per minute.   It will gate all objects, positions, messages received 
to the APRS-IS.

I am thinking it will help fill the hole between Gympie and Gladstone for
the Bruce Highway travellers.

Callsign is VK4OI-1, if there are no objections it will be installed with
the next couple of weeks.
