Are you on Facebook Bob?    I haven't seen you post in the APRS group
nor could I find you by searching on your name.

Did you watch the EuroHamnet DCC video?

Incredible things are happening in the world of technology and it's
not touch tones.

Yes - we need the killer app - probably worse than most folks think -
and it's not touch tones...  Ham Radio is hurting big time.  We need
to quit using our telephones to upload positions and get on to
building a world wide social system (HamBook?) with live video, apps,
pictures, etc.  The technology is there and we Hams have unique
resources to make use of to do something like this.  We can make it so
it's worthwhile once again to turn on a radio and not just download
another App.
