Very interesting.  I have forgotten so much about regular packet!!!  SO somehow there was a wormhole from regular packet to 144.39 in Southern California?

Come to think about it, have I been asleep?  Why couldnt we have an IGate system on 145.01 all over the USA linked into an IGATE system so that everyone's TNC was only a one-hop CONNECT away from any other TNC in the world?

We could call it APRS-CONNECT on 145.01 (if it has not been taken over by a DX cluster)...
