try doing that with some of the hardware-bound old technology...:)

(i even have a cast-off, yet restored Broadcast Electronics radio studio console hooked up to a URI so i can occasionally run a net from a more familiar control surface...:))

I'm about to replace it with an NXDN Icom 440 repeater (digital, but it will continue to run in mixed mode as well).  I'd like to be able to connect it to AllStar, or other VOIP services (yes, like IRLP, maybe Echo, and who knows maybe someday D-Star).
