I am currently running the MicroServer on the usual 30 meter APRS channel to verify the setup with some traffic.
At 19:00 US EDT (23:00 UTC), I will switch the system to 60 meters.
Something interesting to note: Compare the special MicroServer with my usual 30M server at <http://WA8LMF.net/map>. I am hearing FAR more on the MicroServer. I assume the pickup pattern and radiation angle of the 105' center-fed dipole used by the TS-2000 on the McroServer is far more favorable than the magloop I use on the normal server with the FT-851.
