Greetings fellow Allstarlink members, 

Once again I am reposting this email which is very similar to last year with the hopes that we as the amateur community can step
forward and support our hobby, mainly the app_rpt and allstarlink technology that we all enjoy today. 

As many of you that are new to app_rpt this year might NOT know, the creator of app_rpt and the allstarlink network has never
charged or asked for financial support to keep the allstarlink system going for the use in amateur radio.

He has never charged users money to be a part of app_rpt or the use of the allstarlink network, nor has he ever made any profit off
of specific hardware sales for the allstarlink network.  Through the years he has put in a great deal of time and dedication along
with his exceptional talents to make app_rpt and the allstarlink network the great VOIP technology that it has become today.   No
other VOIP technology in the amateur radio community can even compare to the technology, features and capability that is offered for
free to anyone wishing to setup there own allstarlink node.  

Another understated fact is that there are monthly costs associated with keeping things running smoothly for the allstarlink system.
These costs are for server collocation, domain certifications and so on, amounting to roughly $175 per month.  Jim has been paying
these monthly fees from donations, but mostly out of his own pocket.  Wouldn't it be nice if we could all pitch in and help him to
at the least cover these monthly costs for this coming year?  

I am proposing that we all donate to this cause via PayPal at the following URL. 

https://allstarlink.org/

At the top of this webpage just slightly down there is a PayPal donate button.

In the spirit and season of giving, lets all try and help out with the financial side, so we can continue to use and enjoy this
great technology that we have all come to know and love!

I would also like to thank Jim, WB6NIL for all the many hours of work and support that he and others have donated to this hobby so
that the amateur community at large can benefit and enjoy the use of his technology on a daily basis for free.
