If there is any doubt that 30 is still alive, this is a list of the stations my 
home igate/webserver has heard in the last 10 days or so while I was gone on 
the road trip to SW Texas.

The two lists reflect stations heard on conventional 300 baud AX.25 and on 
PSK63/MFSK16 digimodes generated by APRS Messenger.  The asterisk after a call 
denotes stations that I hear frequently/routinely; i.e. beacons 24/7.

Both sets were received simultaneously on my Kenwood TS-50 with a 500 Hz CW 
filter on my homebrew 6-foot (1.8 meter) diameter magloop. Bottom of the loop 
is about 10 feet (3 meters) above the ground.

I was seeing far more stations, on average, on my mobile setup's map than I 
routinely see at one time at home.   30M propagation seems to be far better at 
lower latitudes than in central Michigan.   (Home is at 42.74 N.  Average in 
Texas was 31.50 N.)

Note that WA8LMF-2 and WA8LMF-63 are my own mobile stations heard at the home 
station in Michigan while I was on the road in Texas and New Mexico.
