 I see! As for low usage of the BBS, well, most of the folks that used GO-32
either don't have 1.2g or have not been able to get into the AO-51 BBS at 
since the new configuration was put in place. I have been unable to use 
AO-51 BBS with
a 70 watts brick on 1.2g, a directives system 23 cm RHCP 12 turn helix 14.5 
dBic gain,
1/4 inch heliax coaxial cable after many days of trying. I can into AO-51 
using voice with
no problem. I know the frequency is a little off and have tried adjusting 
but no luck.

 I just wonder if the BBS was in V/U mode how many more users would show up.
Can a schedule mode be requested for the BBS for V/U???

  Oh well, as you said, it is a low priority.
