I would like to add that working with Steve has been a pleasure. If a 
bug was reported, it was fixed. ( If Steve did not find it already) We 
do get quite a few storms in FL, not to mention visits from people named 
Andrew etc. In my testing ASW did a fine job of reporting. ASW will make 
a fine addition to the list of add on programs available for 
AllStarLink. As testing runs and issues are found, we move closer to a 
more complete solution for Amateur Radio repeaters and simplex nodes.
