Re: Message of Thanks to Danny, VK7HDM
- Thanks for explaining the problem Rod!
However, if you're in touch with Danny at any time, please would you pass on my thanks to him for all his efforts, but please ask him to switch off the broadcasts from both his callsigns. I have a very small monthly data plan, and it's just good housekeeping to remove any data flow that is no longer required.
As for connectivity between the two systems, I agree. I've been very disappointed that it hasn't been possible to establish some permanent links between myself in NZ and some Australian gateways. We've always run into this incompatibility problem, or the fellas on the other end have had no RADIO ports. No point in linking-up gateways with no radios attached, they're a 'gateway to nowhere' hi hi!
I'm trying to resurrect a traditional Packet Radio Community here, where we all have TNC's switched on 24hrs and can use each-other's TNC Nodes as 'stepping-stones' to span the region on radio, making it possible for more and more of us to reach the Gateway and connect outwards to other 2m radio ops overseas. We also want to provide a 2m radio link into another Gateway in Australasia where there are fellow HF Operators using a DX Cluster that is relevant to our own geographic region. I've got some great links to USA, but remain hopeful that we can establish a local group of DX-ers sharing a local cluster.
Thanks for relaying the news about Danny.

> Paul, Danny - This a problem between XRouter and BPQ32. I have the same problem with Danny & my own XRouter Remote Nodes. This is why my Remote XRouter Nodes are being changed this weekend, to Linux/URONode. ZL2BAU & ZL2AQY who run XRouter, we have no problem with, Why they work, dont know why!!!!. But with Danny & others, the udp connect will only work one way. We are still trying to find a fix with Danny and others, but no luck so far.

I have also been trying to 'resurrect a traditional Packet Radio
Community' by having my old PC AT having BPQ 4.09d node and PZTBBS, with
a KISS TNC running 1k2 bps + 2m HT all running 24/7. Unfortunately there
are no other folks in the area either doing the same or connecting to my
I would even add another TNC or USCC card + more rigs, provided there is
somebody willingly to donate some surplus equipment. But it seems that
both ham clubs and individuals in my area are not in the same motivated
mood anymore. I hope that the situation in ZL is better and I suppose
that if more hams leave their old stuff running in similar way, 24/7,
the packet network will be much more lively.
