[aprssig] Clueless HF Beacon Received!

  The world-wide HF propagation from near the equator in the Pacific is 
absolutely amazing.

Looking at the raw packet listings on findu for  ZS1TA-9,  it appears that at 
various times he has been received and gated to the Internet from:

    *   The U.S. west coast
    *    From Australia
    *    From coastal Western Europe
    *    From the U.S. mid-west and south-east
    *    From central Europe
    *    From the northern U.S. east coast.


I've temporarily set "my location" in VOAprop to his, to compare how closely 
the predicted propagation agrees with where he is really getting out to.
