Hi Per,

I thought about virtualbox, indeed. But there is no room for its running - 
PIII+512MB. Still trying to update notebook's memory, but it's also not so 
easy. eePC won't work in expedition conditions, indeed -
So, I'm still stuck on win$ for that journey.

Well. So, if you don't mind, I would test APRS in PSK31 (UI-View + PSK31srv) as 
a "zero" variant. Then, with appearing of PSKmail for windows (or whatever - 
fldigi works fine, the only thing - to inject APRS data into it :o), I would 
move to PSK62 or PSK250 modes. 
Regarding to the bands - I think we would start from standard APRS frq - 10.147 
MHz. In addition to it I can operate in 14 MHz as well.

I'll use IC-7000 with 100W output (probably 40-50W in digital modes) and GP 
2,5m (short vertical) on the top of the vehicle's roof.
