      Good morning Don,

      YES - let's share a coffee...
      Your call to set a time and place?

      I've visited your node several times in the past without appreciating the similarity.  After doing some web research this morning, I now believe your "net-node" should be compatible with my "net-rom" if our software authors have both been faithful to the standards.  To that end, I will configure my node to add your node as a neighbor.  Yes - I'll need to set a digi-path since our direct path is not 100% reliable...  I should know how well it works in a couple more days.

      My path to WA8RSE is not very reliable via RF either.  Also, I can not reach RSE via telnet from the command line, while I can reach RSE from telnet within jnos.  The bad news is that RSE rejects my login - his node seems to permit only pre-registered logins?  I expect to sort out his rules as he and I have further conversation.

      I also expect to improve my node's RF accessibility.  My plan is to raise the antenna another 20ft (+/-) and increase power from 30 to 100W.  It remains to be seen if it will reach the other side of the lake - today it does not.  Which opens another subject: what omni-directional antenna works best for digital networks?  I've been looking to build a loop for the purpose - but I can still change my mind with an eraser since it is not built yet...

      The station here has a Net-Node.  It's call sign is WB8I-2, but I do not seem to hear you direct.  I do not hear any other Net-Nodes in this area.(I do hear them

      from acrost the big lake).  I am still having trouble hearing Grand Rapids , I may hang another port on the system with a beem pointedin that direction.

      Who knows  I also notice that the last time I hear WA8RSA, I was hearing a non AMPR IP address.  It looked like it was a LAN  address.

      73 de Don, WB8I

      PS. Still looking forward to that cup  o' coffee
