[aprssig] Ham Radio, Use it or Lose it!

Hi Brian,

	I remember showing up on your doorstep, after dodging several huskies, only
to have you scurry up an attic ladder to retrieve an HDLC chip for a
Vancouver board donated to the cause by Steve - W2FPY.

	This was then turned into the W2FPY-7 digi and the link between DC and
North Jersey and South Jersey was born.

	Planning (Dream) meetings held at the rest stop on Interstate 95 in
Delaware, were regularly attended by everyone from DC, MD, NNJ and SNJ.
These are still fond memories.

	Bob was a big part of those early days of packet and he's still at it.

	No pat on the back just good memories!

Joe - KC2TN

  Boy ... memories ... several years pre-PacComm, Gwyn, W1BEL, was in
the Air Force and stationed at McGuire AFB and lived near me. He,  and
Ron, WB2YZS, and I each had a Vancouver board (I had imported a dozen
of them directly from Doug Lockhart out in BC) and we each had two
EPROMs one was  normal TNC code for our use (my call then was KA2BQE
and it was burned in and all that). The second EPROM was the KA2BQE
digipeater EPROM, likewise for Ron and Gwyn. We would each take a turn
being the digipeater for the other two .... there was no network no
nothing
