I'll monitor 144.39 for a few days and see what I hear here in 
Pasadena.  I don't think anyone around L.A. is doing an alt-input 
digipeater.  

I actually have a basic 2-meter 1/4-wave groundplane up about 20 feet. 
This should be ideal for something thousands of feet up in the air, and 
should actually have LESS pickup of terrestrial activity, compared to my 
collinear whips.
