### 2015 RBN data

All the postings to the Reverse Beacon Network in 2015, along with the postings from prior years, are now available in the directory https://copy.com/smnSEO4RoQuTj4mC.

Some simple annual statistics for the period 2009 to 2015 follow (the 2009 numbers cover only part of that year, as the RBN was instantiated partway through the year).
