Anyone know what the situation is like to the west, in the Shenandoah
Valley?  My parents are there, and from what I see of their tracker (KB6VAA)
the coverage isn't good.  I think they've got a site available with
commercial power if someone's got a digi they'd like to put up.  I could
probably ship an Igate out there, too.
