Check out post #10 again, the first sentence. If you live in downtown Minneapolis, the noise of other digital services *might* make AX.25 packet difficult for an apartment dweller. If you live near the border with Wisconsin, then you need to consider talking with K0LAV, or better, attend a few meetings of the Golden Valley Radio Club. Many of their members are part of TwinsLan. BTW- Paul is generally pretty busy, thus going to meetings is generally an easier way to find him than through the published e-mail.
