Apr 2015 – APRS Propagation and Packet Reports This month I had a couple of scheduled maintenance activities that interrupted the continuity of service.

  1. Antenna and mast replacement to reach higher elevation
  2. switched radios btwn FT2900D to 897D and back to 2900D for testing range and coverage


Feb 2015 – APRS Propagation and Packet Reports I had moved my TRx rig from YAESU FT-897D to YAESU FT-2900R. This was done on Feb 7th/8th 2015 Sat/Sun. The FT-2900R is a single band 2M 75W power-house and does a pretty decent job of Rx and Tx of packets to/from my Digi and iGate. Thanks are due to KE0NA; I had purchased this used FT-2900R from KE0NA (Dave Ventura) Saturday morning and picked it up at his place. Dave, thanks for taking good care of this TRx and for the reasonable purchase price. The below is a propagation map and service reporting for Feb 2015 N0AGI - APRS Propogation - Feb 9 2015 Propogation 2 - Feb 9 2015 Propogation 3 - Feb 9 2015     report-1-Feb-9-2015

Thanks, 73 N0AGI
