[aprssig] APRS in Iraq?

I was arranging to ship a batch of OpenTrackers there a while back, but that didn't go through - there was no real network in place at the time as far as I know.  I have friends in the Green Zone (one of them is sitting next to me here in Dubrovnik at the moment) but not hams.  Sounds like there's a lot of jamming anyway, so it might not be terribly usable.

If you do need hardware there, I can ship by DHL or through Lebanon, or to an APO mailbox.

Subject: [aprssig] APRS in Iraq?

  Has anyone been to Iraq and knows about operation there?
  Is anyone running APRS there, on HF ? I doubt anyone would be on it on VHF/UHF, but I guess I could get on with a SAT if anything passes by.
  Would be interested to hear from ANYONE who has been (especially if you have shot pictures). I am in the process of being accepted for a "Contractor's" job, and want to know what to expect.
