After some extensive testing in Australia/New Zealand on 40m (7MHz) I have now setup a full-time 40m Gateway. The centre frequency for this is 7.034.300MHz (sideband irrelevant) so your TNC/Soundcard set-up will determine what you will need to set your radio frequency to.
The set-up for the Gateway is as follows…
Yaesu FT-847 transceiver (100w)
PK-232MBX (with DSP)
Philips PRM-8030 (VHF)
The software in use is Linux AX25 Kernel and Digi_NED v0.39 and APRSD for my I-Gate (VK7HSE-3) I would appreciate signal reports if this is possible!
Recently on the OZAPRS mailing list there was the suggestion of setting up an APRS network on 40m (7MHz) this has been used successfully in New Zealand for some time and I have in the past attempted to initiate similar but with no takers! So what have I seen on 40m thus far? here's a screen shot of my XASTIR viewing the South East of Australia… UPDATE: the gallery plug in was removed so images are no longer available
