PacketRadio

KC2SDS Here. I'm just jotting down some notes regarding packet radio wrt Prospect Mt.

Of course, everything has to be okayed by Brian LaFlure?.

We can start out with a simple digipeater connected to a radio at a location that can receive one of the machines listed at http://www.eastnetpacket.net/.

The digipeater maps show how hubs are created with 70cm links (9600 baud), and 1200 baud local user ports. They use a PC with multiple serial ports for multiple TNCs? (and radios), as well as a BBS and routing software. http://bythebays.net/neflexnet/pics.htm shows what such a set-up would look like.

In the future, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/D-STAR, http://openp25.org/, and http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/High_Speed_Multimedia may be explored. 900MHz could support 1.5Mbps links (a use for antenna on roof)

Here's an interesting link about APRS and Packet http://www.w0ipl.net/ECom/aprs-imp.htm has lots of details and options.
