I still have POTS availability as R14C. In fact I still have POTS
downlinks. I will agree that the usefullness of having a POTS line has
drastically diminished. I keep the POTS line because there are still
some systems that still use POTS to get mail.
Do I need a POTS line as an RC? Probably not.
But I think it is still important to provide support to those
that still use POTS.
