This is your interpretation, but not what I said. We are clearly  
outside your ALOHA circle, so I highly doubt the proper adjustment of  
our digipeaters played any role in your self determined demise. I do  
stand by the comment that we're tired of hearing you complain about  
activity in your area. Do something about it, sponsor a Tiny Track  
building class, bring a wx station to a skywarn meeting. Do anything  
but constantly blaming us for your surroundings.

I think the APRS network in our area has never been better. We have  
cleaned up the network and can reliably use it the way it was  
intended. I applaud the efforts of Bob Bruninga, and all the  
digipeater code keepers(soft and hard alike) for insuring the  
survival of APRS by allowing sysops to contain networks to their  
ALOHA capabilities.
