Hi John,

Thanks for your input.

Please understand I was not being critical, I really do understand the 
problems that distance can create, and gear does go down. My one regret 
is that I was unable to experience "normal" vhf aprs coverage in that 
part of the state because I think it would have been even more 
impressive than it already was.
