Good idea.  Or a Blue roadside P.O. mailbox with a "W" on it.

I pray that the new RMSpacket station will still allow a
DUMB-TEMINAL loggin so that anyone with any TNC can still use
the system in a come-as-you-are scenario like the present TELPAC
stations do. Emergency Email capabilities should allow for dumb
terminal command-line loggins without special software.

Can someone confirm this?  That you can still send and receive
Winlink Email with only a dumb terminal (Hyperterm?).
