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.

See http://aprs.org/cave-link.html

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.
