[aprssig] Update of Sound Card Packet Website

As many of you know, I maintain the "Sound Card Packet" website. It offers
extensive 'help' for those trying to implement the AGWPE program's sound
card modem feature for the first time. It may also be of interest if you
have recently developed a problem with the feature or are interested in
learning about some of AGWPE's advanced features.. 

During the last month, I've made some changes to the site.

Site Address:  

The new URL for this site is
<BLOCKED::http://patmedia.net/ralphmilnes/soundcardpacket/>
http://patmedia.net/ralphmilnes/soundcardpacket/  Until now, this had been
my secondary (mirror) site and QSL.net had been my primary site.
Unfortunately, there were just too many instances of slow response times
with QSL.net, so I decided to make the secondary site my primary site. I
hope this "new" site will be both quick and reliable, but if you experience
any access problems, please let me know. By the way, anyone going to the old
QSL address will be redirected automatically to this new address. (There is
no mirror site at the moment.)

If you prefer, here is an even easier, shorter, more intuitive address to
bookmark:

 <http://www.soundcardpacket.info> http://www.soundcardpacket.info 

It should be listed on most DNS servers now or within 24 hours. This URL
simply redirects you to  <http://patmedia.net/ralphmilnes/soundcardpacket/>
http://patmedia.net/ralphmilnes/soundcardpacket/  

Specific Page Addresses: 

Besides the URL change, I also changed my scheme for page addressing. Each
page on the site has a new address. This means that if you had previously
bookmarked a specific page, it will no longer work.


Content Changes:

The site has been extensively reworked:

*  Numerous deletions, additions and corrections that have accumulated over
the last year

*  In particular, there was a major overhaul of the "Problems?"
troubleshooting pages

*  Added and corrected information about 9600 baud operations

*  Added several pages about using AGWPE's other features, e.g. network use,
remote control of AGWPE, etc. In particular,  the 'Tip and Tricks' page
might be of interest even to experienced users
<http://patmedia.net/ralphmilnes/soundcardpacket/6tips.htm>
http://patmedia.net/ralphmilnes/soundcardpacket/6tips.htm

*  Added information about configuring AGWPE's 'TCP/IP Over Radio' feature

*  Added a page about linking MixW to AGPWE, for those who prefer the MixW
HF packet modems

*  Added an option to download selected parts of the site in PDF files (the
only choice before was to download the whole site)

*  Added a link to an eight-language translator option (AltaVista Babel
Fish)

 

Note: The latest version of AGWPE is still 2003.308:
