I noticed that the APRS transmission was highly overdriven, none of the
Digi's in the Canberra region picked it up.
This "may" be the reason for the lack of reception.

I was using direwolf for decode direct from the data port of my radio.

Just my thoughts.

Hi all,

There was a gap of APRS coverage between Goulburn and Wollongong, it this
expected?
