Good point, but that wouldn't leave us much to discuss would it? We're
hams, we like talking about new technologies and some of us even like
implementing them. I think that is the reason for the high email
volumes today.

I'd be the average Echolink sys-op doesn't have a TNC set up on 144.39
and the knowledge to compose an APRS object that contains his link's
current status. Lynn is taking care of the hard part--composing the
Echolink status into an APRS object. It is still up to local IGATE
operators to gate that object to 144.39.
