[aprssig] APRS in Louisville, KY (Jeff Kunce N0JUH)

Wed Aug 13 14:58:10 UTC 2008


There is little APRS activity in Louisville but there is a and Igate and a 
repeater there. There are a few user in Louisville. Not many.

> I'm on my 5th trip this year across mid and eastern US via I-64 (N0JUH-4
> this trip) - and again noticed the lack of APRS activity going through
> Louisville, KY.  It seems odd that a city of that size should be an APRS
> dead zone.  Is an alternate freq in use there? A local ordinance
> prohibiting APRS? :)
>
>  -- Jeff, n0juh


Sincerely,
