[bbssig] BBS Linking

I'm sending this from McKinney, Texas, north of Dallas.  There is a bit of packet activity here, but most of it hinges around NTS.  The CW traffic nets put the traffic on a local BBS for local hams to pickup and deliver.

The only suggestion I can offer is to keep posting messages on a weekly basis and see if we can stir up some activity between here and there.  

I have a KAM XL and a 2m radio I'd be glad to dedicate to the quest.

Personally, I think there are probably several out there with the beacons set to transmit AFTER.  I can start sending a beacon here and a half dozen stations will be on the air with a day.  But nothing more happens.
