The Main track should be fine, it's only when you venture onto the old telegraph track the fun starts.

I'll probably be ready for a little rest by the time I get that far so easy will be good! Not sure the OTT is the place for a solo 950 with me on it! Plan to do a day run to the tip at sometime over the weekend

We are planning on a night or two at Seisha and taking the boat trip to TI.

Charlie should we take one of these, http://www.handheldsystems.com.au/index.php?cPath=130 you know how AD is on these trips.

Also i just orderd a high gain short length antenna for that hand held, see if that's any better

I carried a Sat phone on our first cape trip in 2007 and found they were useless anywhere there were trees around, was told they work great in open/desert terrain, spent ages walking around the camp ground at Archer River trying to find a spot to get it to link to the saterlite. With the amount of travelers up north these days I would not carry one, the extra weight is not needed.

Pete, make sure you take the bus tour on TI, it's well worth it and I think it only takes a hour, takes you over the other side to the fort and the jap perl divers cemetry( which is like a mini city)

Well if you got out of the camping ground the reception would be better. How many pubs on TI? have i got time for a bus tour, i'd hate to miss one.
