Is a south central PA location (specifically zipcode 17252) close enough 
to 'cental Atlantic' for your needs?

If so, and if noone else offers, I'd volunteer.

I'm likely to need a bit of hand-holding to do this.  I do have a TT4, 
and an VHF/UHF HT, neither of which are doing much more than cowering in 
the dark.  I have a broadband ISP connection.  Mostly, I'd need to 
acquire & place an antenna, run a bit of feed and power line, and do the 
config'ing.
