    Use this all the time when traveling. Actually tracks beacon better when in more remote areas out of reach from digipeaters - as long as there's cell reception you're good.

    This product works great where you have good access to I-gates or relays but it needs to support I-gate over wifi while using VOX/AFSK to be of significant use in my area.
