This means the stations INBUFFER for messages is full
and he has not read any. APRSdos, the Kenwoods
and probably the HAMhud will do this... Some software
has a bottomless pit for incomming Email which in my
opinion only encourages the receipients to never
read it in real time.. <grin> so even though you dont
get a REJ, the recepient hardly ever reads it...
I like the REJ packet as a means of telling the sender
that the recepient either isnt reading his mail or isnt
interested. APRS is a real-time system. When you
send a message and it is acked you have to hope
that the human reads it...
