Remember, be kind to your sysop, for he is subtle and quick to anger. :)

I'm curious as to what kind of attack would require running a service call to every end-user.

The only thing I can think of would be if he had some automated way to not only reconfigure every customer's radio, but also to change every single one of them to different random settings. That's certainly possible, but ouch.
