[aprssig] [VX_8R] (Hawaii) - Ohau Repeater file

Hopefully, when you arrive in Hawaii, (like anywhere else) you
simply turn on  your APRS radio and after 10 minutes look at the
station LIST and you should see the locally recommended repeater
freqs or your location.  

But only if the local APRS didi sysops are doing their job and
putting out that info.  Far too many digis have been set up a
decade ago and never tweaked to keep up with the evolution of
APRS!  See www.aprs.org/localinfo.html to see what your radio is
supposed to be displaying whereever you are.

If  you are not seeing this local info after 10 minutes
ANYWHERE, then get on the air and ask the locals why not?

Bob, WB4APR
