I do remember some discussions on accessing the BBS during non-prime times,
that may be 11pm to 4am for local times, I don't know.  But if someone wants
to get on the BBS between those hours I won't care one bit, I'll be
sleeping.  I know I don't see much real activity at my location at 5am until
it gets closer to the US east coast.  Your other post about the ISS BBS was
in error, we were not using the BBS just the ISS digipeater.

Anyone else's opinions on the best times to access the BBS?
