Intro


 This is my Web page dedicated to Amateur Radio.  I have been an Amateur Radio Operator since 1992
operating mainly on VHF, UHF Voice and 2m Packet, SSTV and ATV.

 Packet Radio BBS Forwarding:

On the Packet side, I operate the Racine County Full-Service Packet Radio BBS, AXIP Node, DX-Cluster and
RMS Winlink Packet Gateway with both 2m RF and Internet/Telnet/AXIP connectivity.


In addition my system operates the BPQ software (version 410d Beta) for the packet NODE.

The WFBB BBS operates under the call N9PMO and has been in service since 1999
It is online 24/7 and is connected to the world wide packet network, forwarding Packet mail and Bulletins. 
Over 100 packet bulletins per day are usually received from the network.
The BBS has two types of ports, one type accesses the packet NODE N9PMO-2 via the BPQ software.
The second type of port accesses the BBS via Telnet connections from the Internet.

The BBS accesses the internet and connects to FORWARDING partners via Telnet connections on several Telnet ports or RF.
TCP Ports 23 and 6300 are Public Access ports for Licensed Amateur Radio Operators, Limited to Read Only without a Pass Word,
Windows Hyper Terminal in TCP/IP (Winsock Mode) or WinPack may be used for Telnet Connections, Host Name: n9pmo.dyndns.org

TCP Ports: 10030, 6300, 6301, 6303 and 23
UDP Ports: 93, 192,10031,10083 and 10093
Are used for Telnet/AX25/AXIP forwarding to the list of BBSs that are FORWARD partners.

Packet Radio Links:

 
Through the N9PMO-2 Packet NODE, there are Four Radio ports available 145.030 MHz, 145.050 Mhz
and 145.070 MHz at 1200Baud and 446.100 MHz at 9600Baud


WinLink2000:

 
Winlink 2000 Utilizes enabling technologies and sound operating practices to provide a full-featured
radio digital message transfer system, worldwide.  Email transfer with attachments,  position reporting,
graphic or text-based weather bulletins, and emergency communications are now available separately
to the Amateur radio, the Military Affiliate Radio System (MARS), and UK Cadet Forces communities by
linking radio to the Internet.

 For the Amateur service, Winlink 2000 users, whether on the high seas, jungles of a remote region,
or traveling in an RV, have the ability to provide their family and friends with the state of their
safety and well-being along with the joys of their travels.

 The Winlink/RMS Packet Telnet Gateway is available from N9PMO-10 accessible on 145.03, 145.05 and 145.07 MHz

 
Weather Beacons:

 
As part of the normal packet BBS beacon announcing call, and awaiting mail, Using a Program I Adapted,
the BBS also announces local weather conditions,  Temperature, Wind Speed, Wind Direction and Wind Gust,
Also Selected Weather Watches/Warnings, This is provided via a weather feed from Weather.Com and uses software
written by Singer Enterprises called "Weather Watcher" Version 5.6.23c


APRS:

 
As part of the APRS network in Racine County, I operate an APRS WX beacon on Internet using the call N9PMO.
WX information is provided by Weather.com using Weather Watcher mentioned above, as well as a small application
written by Jose CX2SA to format the weather information into standard packet weather string for transmission.
