Bob, are referring to my earlier comments?:

"First, an issue of semantics.  I don't use packet.  I use telnet. Not 
many use packet any more... "

Just to make it clear, I did NOT mean this to be way around the rules regarding "packet."  I was just pointing out the term "packet" is used incorrectly.  It is a mode, just like CW, SSB, Baudot, and PSK.  Packet should not be synonymous with DX spotting.

I don't think that's silly, do you?
