Contrary to what is published in this month's QST in the Packet
Perspectives column, I am NOT a source for the KA9Q NOS for the Amiga.
Heck, I'm not an ARRL member and don't even receive QST. Imagine my
suprise when I started getting these mysterious phone calls "about the
packet article in QST."
I am selling off my Amiga system, and no longer have facilities for
copying Amiga disks. Can only support one computer toy (now a
NeXTstation) at a time...
I've already received a number of phone calls from amateurs who read
that article, and I'm hoping to save others spending a few dollars in
long distance charges to talk to my answering machine.
I wish authors would try to check this type of information before
publishing it, as I have NEVER offered to to diskette distribution of
the code that I ported even when I did have the facilities to do so..
I suspect people will "discover" this incorrect information in the
article for years to come. Oh well.
As far as I know, the latest work being done on the Amiga version of NOS
is being done by John Heaton, G1YYH, who started with my version and
added his own changes. I point folks at thumper.bellcore.com in the
anonymous FTP directory /pub/ka9q/amiga for the distributions. Or, you
might try to contact the author:
