Yes, you are missing that Roger (the author of the program) specifically requested the registration and contribution to cancer research in return for free use of the program.

The fact that the system depends on the "honor" of the participants, should not be grounds for doing the dishonorable.

  For Igating to RF, no.  Anyone can download any number of clients and generate a code to log in to a APRS-IS.  That code isn't restricted at all - you just need to know the simple directions on how to do it.

  I see Scott's point - at this point the registrations and donations are not linked.  You don't need to donate to register.  So why go through all the extra work to manually generate registrations?  Or are we all missing something?

  If you are so concerned that a user be forced to read the part about donating before obtaining a code, create a small program to be included in the distributions where the user has to acknowledge that they read the part about donating before asking for their ham call and spitting out a registration code.

  Or again, is there more to this that we are missing?

Don't we still need to make sure that it's a Ham that is using the program?  (for Igateing to RF) Or am I mistaken?
