One of those over SE Australia would be a very interesting 
proposition - a repeater that could potentially cover all of one 
state, parts of 3 others and the ACT.  :)  In other parts of the 
country, you'd get lightly used rural repeaters, which could be 
useful for travellers.  Wondor how much one of those could be put up for.
