There is a 30 meter HF APRS net on 10.147.30 USB using the robust packet mode found in the scs tracker and other scs tnc's. There are igate's in the U.S., Canada and Europe. The robust packet mode outperforms traditional 300 baud HF packet many times over.                          robust-packet.net  http://ve6ab.blogspot.com/2015/04/robust-packet-network.html
