Very interesting to hear of the heavy use of CONVerse there.  I've been
thinking it's going to be a very valuable asset here too to supplement
Emails and APRS.

A couple questions:

Are you on the International Converse system or standalone?

What's the architecture?  Do you have some web info and documentation?  
Which channels?  How are the hubs and clients organized.

I'm dreaming that when we can get an Convers/APRS gateway established --
with certain channels being sent out, or fed from, APRS message
destinations -- then Convers will be accessible by the mobile D700 and D7
rigs.   I think that will be cool, fun and sometimes even useful!

73 and tnx,
