Here is the scenario for this year's winter projects.  We need people in
each of the various areas of the state to concentrate on the following:

WNY - develop links and bbs computers from Chautauqua up to Buffalo and
       then east to Wayne and Broome

CNY - develop links to WNY, lower tier (Broome) and north to Jefferson

Capitol - strengthen reach in all four directions

Hudson Valley - need help on both sides of the Hudson to supplement and
                 replace coverage from Putnam and Westchester

LI - build out links from Suffolk and Nassau to Westchester and NYC

NYC - build out reach into LI, NJ, Westchester and Rockland/Orange

We have 62 counties across the state and need to eventually service the
various EOCs and NGOs in those counties.  Even if you are not ready for
RF links, at least set up the bbs and link across the internet using
44Net.  Experiment there with no downside of making mistakes vs RF.
When you are ready, then add the RF directional links.  We all have a
stake in making sure that NY State has the messaging capabilities to
support our counties, while at the same time providing a training ground
for our local ham clubs and members.  There are plenty on this list that
can help with their expertise, provide working examples of bbs software
configuration and their experience on RF infrastructure.  All you have
to do is ask.
