I wrote Bill, W1KFR about changing to the new settings with a link to
your site about a year or so ago. He his totally clueless!
Maybe if he got straight from the source (you) he may change it. He is

Not sure if the email is still current?
Also, he is using WIDE4-4 for his path
(http://www.findu.com/cgi-bin/find.cgi?call=w1kfr-1). Needless to say,
he was on my budlist when I had the IGate running at the old QTH.
Here is another one on the clueless list which has been contacted before.
