I for one appreciate this service very much. Thanks to all of you who
take the time to post this information! It is very useful for me!

I do some APRS-QRP experiments and some antenna experiments every once
in a while. Oftentimes I don't hear my own packets digipeated and they
also don't get relayed to ariss.net every time. In addition to being
able to see if I was able to get in with a particular setup, these
emails also give me the opportunity to compare my logs with someone
else's so I can get some idea how well my station was receiving.

I really like this service and I hope you'll be able to keep providing
this service.
