What we need is for someone to put up a digipeater right at the
fairgrouinds with a NOT-HIGH antenna that takes INPUT on 144.99 and TX's on

Then everone right at the fairgrounds has priority input to the digi, but
everyone still hears everything on 144.39

THen HT's use normal APRS but with +600 offset.
