Hi Keith, The IRLP hardware is in the process of being moved (at a 
pace matching that of a glacier ) to another members QTH where the RF 
link will work. When done it will be open to all.

End of reply to Keith.

Start pot stirring. ( not a flame I would just like to know how 
others on the list feel )

Why not send an email or a text message or call on a cell phone? Like 
IRLP they use the same infrastructure that Ham radio is supposed to back up.
