I used to run a LinFBB BBS in Newport News, Virginia. The BBS bridged the National Traffic System Digital network and the Virginia Digital Emergency Network (VDEN). Now that I live in Maryland there isn’t any real packet networks to connect to and my BBS has remained unused code on my laptop.
I recently started exchanging messages with VE3GT on 40m and 80m using PACTOR and remembered how fun it was. I’m investigating standing up a BPQ BBS with an existence on HF and perhaps a VHF or UHF frequency.
As of now I’ll be scanning a few HF frequencies for my mailbox. Feel free to connect up to WG3K using PACTOR, PACTOR-II, or PACTOR-III and leave me a message.
