FYI the Olmsted 145.670 packet node is operational on simplex 145.670, 1200 baud AFSK at 80 watts. The nodes ID is “MNRST“.
W0STV is working on an update on what other nodes it has heard and can connect to in the tri-state area.
If you want to learn more about how to do keyboard to keyboard packet network communications there are many youtube videos on the subject to get you up and running. When we had the system before you could contact Fargo, Duluth, and the Twin Cities.
Note: The MNRST node is unable
to connect to the current nearest node WIWASH, with a vertical antenna.
It is 79 miles north of Rochester.
When WIBAYC node comes on line that will be a 40 mile distance to link to. Will keep you updated on this progression.
