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
