Is this true?  I thought the KA node, and TheNET, NET-ROM were
all compatible?
Conventional packet may be "dead" in some minds, but it is still
a capability that can be used in some apps.  Can anyone
summarize the state of level-4 RF networking these days?  Some
areas are maintaining their conventional packet systems for
emergency comms and for fun...
