Well funny,

Blame the disappearance of vk2us in the city, that screwed it !!

I am about to add another...(2m + HF)

Coverage of each is different, its been noticed that south of taren 
point was zero coverage the other day. And you have to wonder what is 
being missed. I use a Th-d72 into a 1/4w on high power in the car and 
rarely get a hit in many areas... Parramatta rd from fivedock out to 
greystanes... virtually zero in between ? have we got enough digi's &/or 
igates ?  I wouldn't worry too much about server loads, when coverage is 
really lousy.

I should be able to cover the south side and southwest towards liverpool 
reasonably well, but I suspect the eastern beaches still wont be covered.

I think we a filling holes, instead of aerial coverage, but then we 
would need the appropriate sites.
