Anyone know about the SEDAN packet keyboard network 
that coverd 10 states in the Southeaset?  I just checked
their pages and the latest newsletter was a year ago and
the links to the network maps dont work...  

Since anyone with a soundcard now has PACKET with
their HAM staiton, it is time to re-vitalize conventional packet
and get those links working again...   Bob

It is amazing how great minds think alike.

I have been working on setting up 10 donated Pentium 130 32mb boxes
with 
dos based apps.  I have APRSDOS and Digi_Ned working but one of the
things 
I want to get going is F6FBB DOS. I plan to have these available for
rapid 
deployment with groups around the state once I get this done.

I have often felt that the old BBS is the way to go for messaging in
local 
disasters and shelter evacuations situations.  Once you eliminate the
long 
range forwarding a BBS can work very well as a place to relay mail to
and 
from EOC's and Shelters.  The star topology is very adaptable within a

limited range.

Now is there anyone on sig who would be willing to help me overcome the

errors I am getting with F6FBBdos?

Off SIG of course.
