NC Packet BBS Activity Listing

[bullet] Note: Below info is beleived to be fairly accurate, but please send updates or corrections to me via the BBS System at WB4IUY@WB4IUY.#RTP.NC.USA.NOAM, on the Wilson local BBS at WB4IUY@K2IMO, or via internet at webmaster@teara.org. This is a modified version of various lists assembled by KD4CPL, KN4AQ, WB4WOR, WD4JPQ, and others. If you've been involved in this, please drop me a line and fill me in. I simply decided to pick the ball up and get it rolling again. I'd like to correct these entries and add packet info for the entire state of NC.

  • BBS = The NETWORKED international BBS system
  • Local BBS = Localized, not linked beyond that system
  • Node = Used to "hop" to another node or to a BBS port
  • BPQ = This is an interesting variation on a node. It is controlled by software called BPQ (named after the author's callsign suffix). It has the ability, by utilizing a computer, to act as a "software gateway". Often, several nodes are interconnected by BPQ to emulate a multi-frequency node...allowing users to jump from one frequency and/or baud rate to another. Very cool! This is also known as a BPQ Switch.

  • Backbone = Used by the BBS's to pass info to other BBS's (not users)
  • LAN = Local Area Network. It is designed for user access by hams in the LOCAL area.

  • WAN = Wide Area Network
  • Gate = Gateway, allows users to pass from one frequency to another, sometimes even changing baud rate.

[bullet]A note to remember: When messages are to be sent to someone over the BBS system, simply connect to the nearest BBS that is part of the network and let the BBS network do the rest for you. It is quite possible for a user to manually route through half a dozen unecessary nodes to get to the same place, when nodes will do the routing automatically. It can also become overwhelming to users, since the list you see below indicates there are multiple hops to any given location. The network uses a system whereby paths to all other sites are memorized and may change from time to time depending on propogation, etc. The packet radio network is pretty darn smart!
