DECEMBER 14 2013 *** OUR PACKET REPEATER IS NOT IN OPERATION AT THIS TIME AS WE ARE LOOKING FOR NEW SITE TO INSTALL***
We now have a packet node installed at the repeater site, with thanks to Gary Purves, VE9AI. We are using our old TNC we had from a previous setup. The old PYE radio interfered with our voice repeater when it transmitted so we ended up using a rig that Gary had. The node seems to be working well so far with only a small glitch shortly after we installed it. The node call is VE9CCR, and we are able to link into the AIPCOM EMO packet system in the maritimes. Here's a printscreen of the nodes available directly from our node.
