I've been a LOOOOONG time away from NOS.  Back in the day, I used a copy 
of KA9Q NOS to create GRAPESNOS which was used in a 56K RF lan around 
the Atlanta/North Georgia area.  Back then things were simpler. 
Passwords, if you had them, were sent in the clear.

Now, if I read the documentation correctly, passwords used for JNOS2 are 
encrypted.  Are they passed on RF encrypted or in the clear?  I know you 
can encrypt them for storage but what about on-the-air logins?
