    From Robert Easthope@1:218/903 to All on Fri Aug 2 01:14:15 2002
    Hello I wonder if anyone could point me in the direction where I can download the fido file echoes as zipped files on the Internet? I'm interested to have a

    look at them specificially ham radio related file echoes as well as Linux stuff.

    By the way I live in the UK so if anyone knows of an internet site that carries

    file echoes in this country that would be better than competing to get them from the US!

    Regards,
    Robert

    Hello Robert,

    Hello I wonder if anyone could point me in the direction where I can download
    the fido file echoes as zipped files on the Internet? I'm interested to have
    look at them specificially ham radio related file echoes as well as Linux stuff.

    Sadly our Ham FDN is not very active these days but I do still receive some files for distribution once in a while.

    There are probably lots of sites that I don't even know about, but these are the current FileGate HUB sites that allow anonymous ftp and/or www access:

    FTP WWW location:
    ========= ============== ============= fido.bayhaus.org Kansas, USA ftp://powerstation.dtdns.net Alberta, CANADA ftp.dreamlandbbs.com http://www.dreamlandbbs.com Dordrecht, NETHERLANDS ftp.filegate.net http://www.filegate.net New York, USA


    By the way I live in the UK so if anyone knows of an internet site that carrie
    file echoes in this country that would be better than competing to get them from the US!

    Sure :) Contact Vince Coen in the UK, 2:257/3. He should be able to help you out or point you to a system somewhat near you. Or see if you can find a current FILEGATE.ZXX file (list of current file echo tags and link info). There

    are sites listed across all of Fidonet where you may also get a link in this file. If you can't find the file near you, here a link to the file:

    ftp://ftp.filegate.net/info/filegate.zxx
    or
    http://www.filegate.net/info/filegate.zxx

    It's released in the FG_WORF file echo :)

    Take care,
    Janis
