Hi gang:

I just subscribed to this list yesterday so I can begin updating myself with 
all that is APRS.  I was very savvy with packet in the day and used JNOS in 
our area for several years.

I am sort of a hard core biker these days.  I just returned from 7 weeks on 
the road, covering as many states as I could.  I used a 5 watt all in one 
gps/modem/radio to xmt my GPS info so my family, friends, and fellow riders 
could keep up with my day to day travels.  Coverage was great until I reached 
Bozeman, MT and right here in Eureka, CA.  I will change the situation here 
in Eureka and I will lean on you all looking for help/advice/tips.

So, to help me get started, I'd welcome required reading on APRS protocol and 
common gear used at low level and at hill top sights.  I am most interested 
in finding low power I-gate hardware that I can install either here at my QTH 
or at our low level repeater site.

I still have a week before I return home to get back to work.  I'll continue 
lurking and learning with google searches.

Thanks all, 73
