       Michigan ARRL DRG's Suggested SSID's

      I have done some initial searching via the internet concerning SSID
      protocols. Since the ARRL never bothered to establish a standard and
      because the Indiana Digital Experimenters Assoc. died and knowone to
      my knowledge has picked up the pieces, here we sit.

      In fact the whole country has been a mix of different protocols. If we
      are reviving packet we should try and establish some kind of standard at least statewide no matter what it is.

      Here is what Michigan Section ARRL DRG had proposed back in 2005.

      Recommended SSID Assignments:
      At the first DRG meeting held Saturday March 5th 2005 in Lansing, here are
      the suggested SSID assignments that were discussed.  Many of these are
      'legacy' uses and some are new assignments.  These are not cast in stone
      but are supplied here as a suggested guideline.

          -3          full-service BBS's  (those that forward mail/bulletins)

                                            perform routing functions via TCP/IP,
                                            NetROM, etc.)
                                          (Can be combined with BBS's that also
                                            perform routing)
          -5          console/keyboard -or- printer
          -6          conference bridges
