Hi,
      I have heard that the above group may be looking at altering the
callsign fields to allow for extended callsigns
 
Eg WB6XXX/VK9   or VK9XXX/WB6
 
If this happens then all ax25 firmware / software will have to be re-written
  What a job
 
Has anyone else heard this ???

Ray might be interested to know that the ax25 protocol group will be making
changes for variable length callsign fields.
It is not just a problem for Australianxxx calls.
There are other special needs such as portable operation VK2AAB/ZL2 etc.
They are working this year on other changes but it is definately in their
todo list.
I did not know that Roger had requested the source code be destroyed.
Thats a shame, from memory I think someone volunteered to him to take it
over.
