[aprssig] APRS in Atlanta

Tue Oct 11 11:13:20 UTC 2005

We are talking more about in America where we don't pay per kB.  I've seen
some very strange paths and operations across the pond and if that works for
you then continue on.  We, over here, are looking for robustness and
reliability in a network.

"If you're trying to send messages from point A to point B the IGates
already know how to get the message to the other party."

Only if the IGate at the destination end is configured to gate messages, or
whatever, from the 'net to "local" stations it knows about.  It seems often
this is not the case, maybe by mistake, maybe by design, or the op's don't
realise what they need to setup?

"Why would you want to plug up a 1200 baud RF network when you can use a
high speed internet backbone? The internet is not only faster it's
(normally) more reliable."

Use of the Internet in many parts of the world is anything but reliable, and
is often very expensive in connection time, or data shifted per kB costs.
Not everyone has access to cable,  DSL, or free local phone call's.  In
fact, most of the world pays through the proverbial nose for public access

No doubt another flame war is about to start.....
