         Good day to the SIG.
         Sounds like everyone things connected packet is gone.  Well
it may be in come places, but 14.105LSB and 10.145LSB are very much
alive as is the MARCAN system here in Atlantic Canada.  Matter of fact
I am hoping our Trinadian station comes back soon to 14.105.  Need some
practise with hf and vhf packet, call any of the stations with -1 (PBBS) or
-7 (all types of nodes) and have some fun.  "NETWORK 105" has been
in continuous operation since 1986 and still going and going strong.  North
America is very well representated, as far north as VE8JL-7:NT105 TNOS
         Hope this is not too far OT.  If it is, turf it in file 13 and forgive
me please.
         All the best, lots of good info on the SIG.

ps.     Thanks Julien, good to see development in probably
         one of the best networked modes we ever had...
