The link to AZ was to the Phoenix area.  It used mountaintop digipeaters and
then NetROMS.  As I remember, N6ND in San Diego, N6CDA/N7MAL, and I were
doing it, along with others.  The link was pretty fragile.

It all started with AK1A.

I remember back in about '88 or '89 when the San Diego DX Club was connected

to the Southern Cal DX Club, and we were trying to find a path to the 
Northern Arizona group.  Maybe 7 to 10 nodes, and maybe 100 users total.
