FROM THE PRESIDENT

MIR "PMS"

As you have probley noticed, the digipeater is turned off along with
3rd party messages. MIREX hopes the digi can be turned back on VERY soon
along with 3rd party.

The problem(s) with the digi being on has beeh hams are useing the digi
to connect to other stations Via MIR. This causes ALOT of "RR"[ Rx Readys ]
and thus can kick out a station trying to put a message up on the R0MIR-1 PMS.
All stations should learn how to use UNPROTO.( Unconnected UI frames via MIR )
If you need more information on this, please send E-Mail to doc@volcano.net or
N6CO@N0ARY.#NOCAL.CA.USA.NA
Scott, WA6LIE or myself will try and help you out useing this mode. (UNPROTO)

The Problem with having 3rd party on has been, this TNC WILL accept
the last line of info that the TNC has accepted. In other words, a /ex or
control Z is added to the message upon disconnection wether the message
was compleated or not. This is leading to ALOT of duplications of incompleate
messages on the PMS. 

PLEASE KILL "YOUR" OLD AND READ MESSAGES!
This statement is sent when you connect to R0MIR-1.
