It's too bad. I have an sgate for ISS but there are rarely any traffic.
I also hope that the BBS system is going to be a secondary mode and APRS 
primary. Not all people have the luxury and "time" to log on to a BBS 
and logout. Using APRS i feel that i have more time and can get more 
"QSOs" in one pass.

If GO-32 was more stable i would set up an 9600baud sgate
