Hi Charles

I’d be willing to join a network like this.  I’m on the Warwick / Chester border

I have two of the older pi tnc boards(34 pin) on original pi B’s. I can change them to I2C and stack them on a newer pi to do the forwarding. 

One is on 2 m @20w & one is on 70cm @ 4w. My 440 amp is down  right now but it would get it up to 30w or so. 

They both have copper pipe J-poles only about 15ft up so they may not have good coverage. 

Count me in....

best regards,
