The gateway OK0NMG is located in Brno,Czech Republic and its history is more then 10 years old.
The gateway was found at the department of information technology at Technical University of Brno by Libor OK2PEN (who sponsored the most
equipment) and Michal OK2XDP, and at first run with 486-DX system. It was the first OK gateway registered in the world gateway amprnet system.
There had been made some gateway experiments already before with Franta OK2OP at the electrotechnical department of TU Brno and Franta
became later the third sysop of the OK0NMG gate. After running this gate for 5 years the University rejected the use of gateway as Michal
completed his study there and the management of department changed for new ones who did not support the digital hamradio systems.
After that there was a short period for a search of a new sponsoring qth to continue running the OK0NMG gateway. Finally it was Roman OK2CRC
who as the net manager of the new Technical Museum of Brno offered under the support of the management of the museum one table and corner in
his server room to accomodate the new OK0NMG system. There should have been renewed the callsign licence so Libor OK2PEN remained as sysop
and as cosysops became Roman OK2CRC and Franta OK2OP. The qth of the Technical Museum is not far from the last original Technical University
qth so there were not much problems to continue radio link to the packet net.
