A high speed Packet backbone Link has been set up between KPG in Peterborough and the Grasshill (Lindsay) site.

A 1200 baud node has been set up at Grasshill for local RF packet connection.  At this time, (Sept 2014) the Node has not been successfully connected to, with a Packet terminal.

We have unfortunately discovered that all our club equipment was disposed of a long while ago by the Peterborough Manor. They said they tried to reach someone through the contact phone number, they had, but they wern't able to get a hold of anyone.

We have probably lost about $400 worth of used gear, such as TNC, 2M trannsceiver, 12A power supply, cables power bar, rough tote storage containers, computers, moniters,etc. I am very dissapointed in the Manor not contacting us, since they could see by the attendance book, that we were still having meetings at the Manor.

 

Harmen VE3EMA and Rick VE3IQZ have got a 9600 baud VHF node running on the KPG freq. of 145.67 MHz. To connect, type c ve3kpg-14
