APRS iGate KE4ZNU-10: Southern Coverage

A pleasant Friday morning ride with several stops:

KE4ZNU-9 - APRS Reception - 2016-09-09

KE4ZNU-9 – APRS Reception – 2016-09-09

KE4ZNU-10 handled the spots near Red Oaks Mill, along parts of Vassar Rd that aren’t hidden by that bluff, and along Rt 376 north of the airport.

The KB2ZE-4 iGate in the upper left corner caught most of the spots; it has a much better antenna in a much better location than the piddly mobile antenna in our attic.

Several of the spots along the southern edge of the trip went through the K2PUT-15 digipeater high atop Mt. Ninham near Carmel, with coverage of the entire NY-NJ-CT area.

The APRS-IS database filters out packets received by multiple iGates, so there’s only one entry per spot.

All in all, KE4ZNU-10 covers the southern part of our usual biking range pretty much the way I wanted.
