[aprssig] East Coast Backbone 9600 baud network

Not that I am aware of. There was the old NEDA network that had a mix of 9600 and 1200 baud point to point links over the NE part of the country and Canada. Any links that were on 6 meters ran 1200 as I recall. There is some history of that old network here http://www.torborg.com/ka2dew/packet/neda/neda.htm


You can find the old maps. Some of that network is still alive and here are node maps I created https://www.eastnetpacket.org/Maps/



Thank you,

I don’t have any access, but wasn’t there a 9600 baud backbone on 6 meters ages ago? Maybe someone remembers that and how it was laid out.

There has been a donation of a dozen or so KPC-9612 Dual Port TNC's to fuel renewed interest in a possible 9600 baud KA node packet network along the Appalachian  mountains from Maine to Georgia similar to what we do each year in the one day Golden Packet event (Golden Packet Event (aprs.org) <http://aprs.org/at-golden-packet.html> 


If we can identify a frequency (and band) for the backbone then there is also a potential donor for a dozen radios for the backbone side (220 or UHF?).


See East Coast 9600 baud backbone (aprs.org) <http://aprs.org/ec9600net.html> 


So, anyone that has potential access to existing ham sites along the way, ket us know.
