Packet Radio

For more details on what packet radio is, see the PacketRadio page.

Non-APRS

General packet radio for discussion, store-and-forward BBSs, nodes, etc. is discussed in this section.

Information on this is a bit scarce, and more details would be much appreciated.

There are two known areas of activity of non-APRS packet in Kansas:

Wichita Area

See CentralKansasPacketRadio for lots of detail on this system.

Western Kansas

There is a network out in Western Kansas operating on 145.010. They are running nodes with X1J firmward in Garden City, Scott City, Hugoton, and Colby. They have a HF gateway as well at 7086.5 USB. There is a regional network on 40m into Colorado, Texas, Louisiana, Iowa, and Ontario. They also have VHF links into Oklahoma and Texas.

Thanks do Dale N0KQX for this information.

APRS

K0HAM has an APRS digipeater link system on the air covering much of the state, from the northeast over to Garden City.

Other APRS systems exist, which may be Internet-linked but not necessarily RF-linked.
