WHAT: Packet Bulletin Net - PKTNET@USA
WHEN: Sunday, January 21, 2024 - 0000 UTC

This month, net control has asked a few questions for both sysops and end users.

1. Do you forward with RF or AXIP or Both?
2. If RF, what modes do you offer?
3. If RF, what states do you forward into?

1. Are you using RF to connect to your local?
2. (assuming you are) what bands do you use?
3. What modes are you using?

1. Is there an interest in taking Packet Radio back to EMCOMMs in a more effective way?
2. Would you like to be part of the group working to move Packet Radio effectively back into EMCOMMs?

Subject: Name, Town/City, State & BBS you are using
Message: (Answers to questions posed above)


The participant map will be updated throughout the duration of the net at:


Don't feel obligated to enter a detailed message if it's difficult; the important part is the Subject line!

The VDEN website (https://vden.org) includes information about the Central Virginia BBSes, how to send personal mail and bulletins, and methods for connecting over RF (Packet / Vara via Terminal / Winlink / Outpost).

Bulletins created on the N4VEM BBS will be forwarded over Vara FM to the KN4LQN BBS, which will then forward over Vara HF to the N3MEL BBS and the wider regional packet network.

Reach out if you have any questions!
David KN4LQN
