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

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. shows what such a set-up would look like.

In the future,,, and may be explored. 900MHz could support 1.5Mbps links (a use for antenna on roof)

Here's an interesting link about APRS and Packet has lots of details and options.
