This is where the idea of 3 KINDS of messges come in

to use "IP" speak

"Unicast" - station to station - this packet goes from KG2V to WA2GUG
"Broadcast" - "This packet goes from KG2V to EVERYONE who can hear me"
and the hardest - and probably MOST important
"Multicast" - this packet goes to the following list of people - and
sometimes you have to put together the packet more than once

I'd say base the who darned thing on TCP/IP - the stacks and the like
will already be there

73 de KG2V

For the Children - RKBA!
