1)   I am very much a regular on this list.



2)   The Bruninga pages on my website are a HISTORIC ARCHIVE (and are labeled 
as such on every page).   These are left from when Bob's pages were hosted on 
the US Naval Academy server and domain.   Many users outside the Us couldn't 
access them because of a misconfigured Domain Name Server on the Academy 
server.  I mirrored his pages on my site, so these people could access them.

Several years ago, Bob's pages were migrated to their own domain  aprs.org 
where everyone can now access them.  I then stopped updating my mirror and let 
it sit unchanged as a historic archive.

You should check the APRS.ORG domain for the latest version of the Sky Command 
info.



3)   Kenwood does excellent radio design, but their supporting software and 
firmware design is god-awful.  The absolutely atrocious software is one of the 
main reasons the VC-H1 hand-held SSTV device failed. Sky Command has always 
been a badly-documented kludge.
