Re: Packet and Crossband repeater

I tested the system to verify the validity of the poll and voted a few
dozen times during my check. It is not the honest hams that concern me.
It is the one person that voted 700 times trying to sway opinion. 

BTW, reply emails to you directly are bouncing.

Greetings- I thought your reply was interesting. I for one only voted
once and I could say the same thing about packet voters but I believe
the vast majority of amateurs are honest enough to vote only once. We
are both biased towards our own interests, I guess this is how
negotiations work, hi.
Well, anyway, please try to provide ample time for crossband repeat
using the existing equipment.
Thanks, pat n2oeq

 I would be very wary of that poll providing any useful data since it
was set up so that anyone could vote numerous times. The results are
very likely skewed.

In the long term, I expect the crossband repeater function will be
enabled more often (maybe full time?) once the complete compliment of
hardware is on board. The current operations are base on available
hardware and crew interest.

Numerous procedures and even a quick reference guide for both radio
systems are available for the crew to use should they be interested.
