Dear Randy;

They are indeed sourcing a NLANR multicast beacon from
192.35.169.2 - their connectivity looks very good. The 750k seems to 
be all inbound beacon traffic. They are not sourcing outbound video yet.

As for why the NLANR beacon
takes 750 K, ask Bill Nickless. Each beacon sends 10 packets 
per second and, with 127 beacons now participating, it adds up.
IMHO a rate of 1 packet per second would be sufficient, and would
cut the beacon traffic down to a reasonable size.
