Gee, wonder what planet YOU are doing ham radio/packet on. Ever heard of
NOS? Running TCP/IP over radio? If you plan on doing that, better bone
up on KISS mode, because it can't be robustly implemented without KISS
mode and a NOS or equivalent application. We run TCP/IP as our backbone
protocol on our statewide net here in Georgia, and NOS makes it happen.
