Since your in Florida, I presume your terrain is flat, so another digi so close might not help. However a fill-in digi can still be usefull especially for someone with an HT. How reliable are your local digi's? How well do they actually work?

Hi All,

I've been following the list for several months now trying to get a feel for the aprs community.  For the most part it has been enjoyable and I want to thank all of you that contribute to the list.  While I still have a lot of learning to do concerning aprs (and amateur radio in general) this list has been extremely helpful to me. 

I have been considering building a digipeater/Igate at my QTH, but after doing a little research on aprs.fi, and listening on the air, I have discovered that there is another digi 7.2mi from here.  It has an antenna that is higher than I would be able to put up for this.  So my question is, would I be contributing anything useful by building another digi so close, or would I just be cluttering up the frequency? 

Thanks,

--
