  Ken one thing to remember, showing up in Findu, you are at the mercy of an
igate. So if the Igate doesn't hear the digi or the packet, then you will
not show up on findu. Doesn't mean you are not digi'ing, you are just not
reaching the Inet. Seems you said in a previous post that the Igate was 3
hops away. Maybe you or someone in your town can setup one. All it takes is
a home station and a client prgm (such as Ui-View) to feed what it hears at
your home station to the Inet. Then you will see yourself all day long!
