APRS infrastructure changes

Today we made some changes to the K9IU APRS infrastructure in the area. We have installed a new digipeater and igate at the Indiana Memorial Union on the IU campus. The antenna is a temporary setup, a mag mount on the roof top 7 floors above ground, and works well for now. The digi SSID is K9IU-12 with the igate being K9IU-14.

The old K9IU-13 igate was shut down shortly thereafter. So far the corrupt packet issues that some people were having through K9IU-13 have been resolved with the new igate.

Indiana QSO Party Results

We had a good turnout at the K9IU shack to operate in the Indiana QSO Party. Below are our unofficial results (logs have been submitted).

Contacts for K9IU: 165
Multipliers: 54
Total points: 8,910

I'll create a page to track all of our contesting scores so we have something to work on beating in years to come. 73s
