Anyone on APRS...  Myself included.

Not I.  Just OpenTrac and/or APRS packets.

My last would have been in the 90's, around the time I moved out to
the boonies and lost most of my connectivity on RF.

FWIW:  I can hear your APRS packets directly at my QTH, at least
part of the time.

In order to get back on TCP/IP I'd need a DE-9 PC bracket with a
10-pin ribbon cable (so I can use the real serial port I have on the
MB) and to build another antenna for the attic.  I can find a
2-meter mobile radio to use and a Tracker2 in KISS mode.  All

Keep talking, I may join you.  On 2-meters anyway.
