Just fired up a few MultiTrack windows waiting for -2 and -63 to show 
up.  You're home QTH has as many APRS -SSIDs as mine does!

Have a safe trip, and maybe we can talk on a repeater or 2m APRS 
messaging when you get over here to the Space Coast.  There's a repeater 
on 146.940- (no tone) that simulcasts NASA launch audio in the event 
that anything goes worng during a launch so that amateurs can be ready 
to mobilize.

When mobile, I usually monitor the 146.850- PCARS repeater that 
sometimes has a 107.2 tone, but I think that's been mostly removed now.  
Also, once you get a bit south of Daytona Beach, you should be able to 
pick up K4FL on 145.230- 103.5 tone.  It's only 10w, but 1200 feet HAAT 
and covers most of Central Florida including over here on the east coast.
