	Arpanet access is not the only way to get to SIMTEL-20. One can
obtain normal access by working at White Sands Missle Range and using their
hardwired lines. Or one can request a guest account and hope they have
dialup lines that you can call long distance. 
	What I'm trying to put across is that the answer to your question is
a theoretical yes and a practical no. White Sands (Simtel-20) is a government
computer willing to dispense information to authorized users of a government
network (the ARPANET).
