No question is foolish, unless it's not asked..

No wurries Sil. I do it regularly here in New Plymouth. You'll need
either two modems, or two TNCs. If running a modem with BPQ, you just
set up BPQ as a NODE. If using two TNCs, activate two comports. You may
need an extra COM port card for this, or don't use a mouse.

I also understand that you can use AGWPE and the two stereo channels of
your sound card as a two port node as well. But not having the
facillities here for AGW, I can't advise any further..

There's no regulatory reason why you cannot do this in NZ..

I can give you more info offlist, if you wish?
