Packet Radio in Clallam County


Packet Radio is a means of transferring digital information over the air. The data can be as simple as talking to someone keyboard-to-keyboard, to more advanced functions, such as sending data to and from a satellite.

APRS, Automatic Position Reporting System, is a technology that involves packet radio, GPS units, and computers for digital communications, automated location tracking, weather telemetery, and more!

APRS was developed by, and is a trademark of, Bob Bruninga WB4APR.


 

Clallam County is a participant of the 145.630 MHz Packet Network, which covers around the entire Olympic Peninsula and many areas around Western Washington. The network is designed to provide local and regioanal packet communications for area ARES/RACES groups. Active mountaintop site infrastructure currently exists in Clallam, Jefferson, Grays Harbor, Pacific and Mason counties. Click on the links below to obtain further information:

NOTE: 145.69 MHz is now being used in Clallam County.  As soon as a Winlink station is available on 145.63 MHz, Clallam County stations will shift back to 145.63 Mhz.  This per Al Dawson 12/16/09.

One thing common to all users of packet radio is the RF connection between TNCs. A document by John Ackermann N8UR exposes the issues relating to timing, DCD performance, optimizing receive audio performance, provides a full explanation and solutions to the common dilemma of incorrect TNC audio drive into the radio transmitter, and more. This website is a must-see for all users of packet radio. Click on the link below to check it out.
