Oops, what I meant to say here was that the amateur network is much like
the real Internet in that both consist of a mixture of IP gateways and
lower level entities that don't understand IP.
The amateur packet radio internet includes its non-IP "digipeaters" in
the same way that the "real" Internet includes X.25 packet switches,
Ethernet repeaters and bridges. Depending on the specific network
configuration, either the IP-level gateways or the subnetwork level
components may do the bulk of the work.
