For any AMSAT folks have TH-D72’s:
We are looking for as many D72 owners that live within a few hours of
Mammoth Cave, KY to join in a significant cave-radio experiment on 2-3
March 2013 to demonstrate VHF/UHF cave radio “texting” and status
reporting. The D72’s can automatically relay position and text data up to
7 or 14 hops from radio to radio. We want to see how well this technique
can be used in caves.
The date corresponds to the annual Cave City hamfest and is a good excuse
to come play. We have the support of the National Park service to conduct
this first ever cave-radio-relay experiment.
