Since we are turning the clock back....I launched my first AX.25 node in 1985 when I was living at Ft. Belvoir, VA.  It was part of the 144 MHz "eastlink" network that ran from Maine to Miami.  Somewhere on a 5-1/2" floppy disk I have an ASCII map of that network.  

You really could hear the packets in those days, even at 1200 Baud.  I used to use a pair of 2M rigs plus a couple of TNCs to teach "datacom" as it was called then.  Lots of fun!
