You have a good point. I am trying to justify the effort to rcv spots,
either via 2 mtr or Telnet.
An extra phone line or more coax for the RF ISP link is what I am planning.
Either way seems like a waste.
What is up with endless stateside spots from other stateside nodes? Please
tell me so I will understand!
If I had a 2mtr connection, the entire network would fail due to the sheer
volume and constant collisions.
Someone please enlighten me.
