It's interesting that you can't assume this means the person is USING it.

I was in a contest earlier this year (I forget which one, I didn't send 
in a log anyway) during which I was connected to the local 
PacketCluster and forgot all about it! At the time, the Packet monitor 
was in a different room than the shack. It was in the kitchen! I realized I 
was still connected to it when I shut the rig off to go to sleep and went 
to get a snack first.

I received the following message from the NATIONAL SALES MANAGER at 
Kenwood. Seems he took offense at the message someone put on the 
reflector (which I added to wondering if my Gold D-104 Eagle would work 
with it) about Kenwood selling their Amateur Radio products at truck 
stops. The new radio contained features like "Good Buddy Beeps, Noise 
Generator for clearing the frequency, Echo Generator"

If you want to send your comments to Paul about Kenwoods new Truck Stop 
outlet chain, his E-Mail is  PAULM at IX.NETCOM.COM . Also maybe 
PAULM at KENWOODUSA.COM      His call is KD6DUH .

Hmmmmmmmm. I wonder if the TS in TS-870, TS-950 stands for TRUCK STOP?

Dear Mr. Wallace: (that's me,  Art)
I have read your posting to internet. I would like to have the ability 
to speak with you over the telephone. It is important that we talk 
I will call you at your convenience if that is possible. Please provide 
me with your phone # and the best time to reach you. The information 
that you are providing is untrue. I wish to clear this matter up with 


Paul Middleton KD6NUH
National Sales Manager
