> ...open APRSIS-CE you will see many Digi's in Boston!

How about ATV repeaters?  If someone could supply a camera and ATV transmitter, we might be able to get it on board. 

> How much APRS power? Ant gain? Antenna HAAT? Duration?

5W, 0DBd 40' only during the 8 hour cruise.

IF any APRS Canadians plan on a repeat of their war of aggression* during this 1812 commemoration, please let me know off line.

* Some historians claim it was a US war of aggression but then we don't like to let facts get in the way of political history... ;-)

> Callsign will be USNAVY-3 the Third US Navy ship
