The Tier 2 network has grown to 44 servers world-wide. This past holiday weekend
T2 hit almost 2000 (1994, actual) clients which represent over 30,000+ end-users 
on APRS. APRS and the APRS Internet Service continues to grow, and we need
help.  

We are looking for candidates to represent Tier 2 by providing servers in areas
that aren't covered on the APRS-IS network.

All T2 servers use javAPRSSrvr which can be operated on most any computer
operating system. javAPRSSrvr is the brain-child of Pete Lovell, AE5PL The
current APRS-IS network consists of 3 core hub servers galvanized by 44 Tier 2 
and multiple lower servers which also may act as IGates.

Current servers and status:

qualify, please contact me direct: dick at kb7zva dot com
