Following are some of the local packet nodes reachable from the tri-cities of Fremont, Newark and Union City.
Packet repeaters provide an excellent way of sending text-based messages from station to station. Some have mailbox systems, where you can leave a text email for another ham to collect later. There is no need to set up an account - normally, any callsign works as a valid address. Little more than a laptop and an HT are needed to access these systems. Some useful stations are:
|KU6S-2||currently on 145.050 MHz
(was 433.530 MHz)
|SBARA's packet mailbox and bulletin board service (BBS), located in central Fremont. We hope to provide coverage all over the Tri-City area. Please try it and send signal reports to KU6S. Contact Steve Rishton AG6TT for further information.|
|K6FB-2||145.050 MHz||On Skyline Ridge, provides digital coverage all over the Bay Area. Many digipeaters and packet mailboxes share this frequency, and send beacons. Try exploring them.|
Please send updates and corrections to the Web Master, thank you.
