But did you drive around beaconing and then take a look at aprs.fi to 
see if YOU were heard. That's the proof you've achieved your objective.

I certainly wouldn't take one short period of listening as indicative of 
what to expect. I ran a full 30m igate with a flat-top dipole up 40ft 
for a few years, and quiet period were not uncommon. The other side of 
the coin was gating a maritime mobile station in the Carribean, every 
day for near two weeks, and another MM deep in the Southern Ocean. I 
heard mobile stations from pretty much all over Oz. My station was just 
west of Kempsey and I just loved the standing noise level of S0. My new 
location is not going to be so kind to me!
