Greetings fellow Allstarlink members, 
Once again I am reposting this email which is a copy and paste from 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 you might NOT know. The creator of app_rpt and the
Allstarlink network has never charged or asked for financial support to keep the system going
for the use in amateur radio.
He has never charged users money to be a part of app_rpt or for use of the 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 a node.  
Another understated fact is that there are monthly costs associated with keeping things running
smoothly for the 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. 
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.
