Thanks, Keith,

Maybe buildings or hills weaken the coverage along I-64?  I could hear a 
few packets, but only one was decoded by my D700 (a digi south of 
town.)  I probably don't have the most optimized signal, but if you look 
at my mobile track N0JUH-4 you can see that I'm being picked up in most 
areas.  I also looked at APRS history maps and Louisville is pretty 
empty compared to other metro areas - I would think that you would see a 
few more travelers/truckers along the interstate.
