>> Come to think about it, have I been asleep?  Why couldn't we have an IGate system on 145.01 all over the USA linked into an IGATE system so that everyone's TNC was only a one-hop CONNECT away from any other TNC in the world?

Double sigh...  My posting yesterday was less than helpful.   I've
been looking but I can't find a good reference summary page even on
wikipedia.   So the still too quick summary here is that there is an
existing packet radio on Internet network that greatly predates the
APRS-IS.   It is even more complicated to use and less useful and
interesting in these days of megabyte point and click activity.   It
can be accessed by legacy connected mode packet if there's a
gateway/node/bbs in the local area or on the Internet by many
applications such as BPQ32, JNOS, XROUTER or the packet networking
built into Linux or AGWPE software.

This system could be used for APRS style UI data but it would take
some tweaking...  I believe that's what Andre is working on now.

I'll post more info when I find it.
