And imagine how much more powerful it will be as an AMSAT comms capability
when someone writes a WEB interface making the flying store-n-forward BBS
available on line.

We have dozens of ground stations all around the world, each collecting
downlink packets and feeding them into the global APRS-IS.  But the PBBS
packets are not APRS and not collected by the APRS-IS since they use a
different PID bit.

All we need is a separate internet server that collects all the PBBS
packets... and then makes them available on an on-line web page showing
the entire PBBS trffic.

What a great service for disaster and remote communications using Ham
