I'm just sending a note off to Ralph right now. He is 209 km from me, but 
when last heard from his horse-mobile APRS station, he made it to a digi 
that I can hear from here and gated him from my VE7GDH IGate. As well as an 
email address, there was a phone number in his beacon comment, so he's 
making it easy to contact him. Perhaps there is someone on the list that it 
is east of Tacoma or south of Seattle that could make direct contact with 
him by phone if not on 145.37 136.5 Hz.

So... Ralph can update his path from RELAY,WIDE3-3,GATE to something like 
WIDE1-1,WIDE2-1 but where is the GATE that's listening on VHF that sent him 
out on 30M?

DXing can be fun, but not on APRS - hi!
