New APRS Digi Installed at Kaiwhara High, Ngaio

New APRS Digi Installed at Kaiwhara High, Ngaio

The ZL2WA-3 digi was installed today and is running well. Coverage is designed for the central and inner suburbs, as well as the harbour area.

The digi is being i-Gated via ZL2BEZ and traffic can be seen on APRS.FI, look for ZL2WA-3.

A drive north showed it does not cover much north of Johnsonville on SH1 so the gap till ZL2KG takes over is still there.

The antenna is mounted low on the shed roof, leaving the options of raising it, added directional gain or adding another digi in Tawa or maybe at Colonial Knob. Plenty of projects left to do!!

Thanks to Steve ZL2KG for driving this project, and the great support from Peter ZL3TC, Paul ZL2BEZ and others for getting the station on air.
