That's just what AD4TZ is doing just north of Charleston SC. It is an 1800'
HAAT site (coincidentally, it's also 1800' above sea level too). He's on
144.99/39 and has or will put a beam on it pointed north to the rural areas of
SC between I-95 and Myrtle Beach.
Quoting Robert Bruninga <bruninga at usna.edu>:
> Rather than give up that great coverage of some of
> the early BIG digis, consider simply switching their INPUT
> over to a nice QUIET alternate input channel for APRS
> such as 144.99 (if avail in your area) where it can
> listen for low-power trackers.
> Everyone wins:
> * The trackers dont have to compete with a 100% saturated channel
> * The surrounding lower digi's dont have to hear the QRM from
> the big digi and can do their jobs locally MUCH better.
