It would be cool to do EBBE digipeating!

Why 144.36?  I would use 144.99 instead.  I guess it depends on the
local activity.

N9XTN-11 will be on 144.36 MHz and N9XTN-12 on 144.39 MHz.  Both frequencies will be locally I-gated.  Depending on the wind forecast, the launch time may be pushed earlier by up to an hour to avoid increasing winds that morning.
