I think I am done with this discussion for awhile, as apparently I am 
totally misinformed on the purpose of Amateur Radio. Since Mr. Loveall 
has established himself as the supreme authority of what is and is not 
Ham Radio, and has taken it upon himself to question the license or 
mental understanding of anyone who disagrees with him, there is no 
further point in...well, trying to make a point. Though I would 
recommend that you then stop playing with that D-Star stuff...isn't that 
getting too close to Ham Radio minus RF?

For the record, I would love to get more involved in area of Ham Radio 
like this...but it is those with attitudes like AE5PL that make me just 
say 'this is so not worth it'. This is supposed to be a fun hobby to 
explore and extend what we've learned in the past with what the future 
holds. Not be a wet blanket over anything that doesn't meet one's 
criteria for what is and isn't allowed by the hobby.
