Hi Adam,

Welcome!  :)  There's _tons_ of really cool opensource amateur radio 
software out there - we should look into doing a talk on this next 
quarter.  Any experts out there?

The machines are unfortunately pretty old.  They are original pentium 
586 machines at around 100MHz with something like 32MB of RAM.  The P-II 
you have is from the second generation of pentiums which is actually the 
686 so it will definitely be faster than the machines we are retiring. 
That being said, if you're still interested in a box or two to mess 
around with, we would be glad to let you have a couple.

- jim.
