Hi guys Geoff Gatward VK8GG is the vk2 that moved to Alice, he is on this list and will most likely pop up and give the latest info, but I don't believe there is 2m aprs in Alice, I used 40m aprs when I was out in central Aus last year. Worked everywhere.
Cheers Tim VK2HLT.

>> I did notice that I havent been received for two days I think that is due to the battery voltage dropping overnight due to the fridge running and in turn the transmitter runs out of puff... (that is on the second battery).
>> Whilst I am running around Alice is there a local digi here? is it worth adjusting the frequency of the radio?
>> Thanks :-)
