Antenna Radio Data Interface Ham Computer A typical ham radio digital station is composed of simple components. E-MAIL VIA HAM RADIO How do Hams do that? In order to do e-mail, it is necessary to link to a WL2K PMBO station. The Ham Radio computer is equipped with Paclink AGW software. Left Click Mouse to advance.
Antenna Data Interface Ham Computer Where short range (up to 30 miles) communications are possible VHF may be used to provide E-mail over Ham Radio. E-MAIL VIA HAM RADIO How do Hams do that? VHF Radio
Antenna VHF Radio Data Interface Ham Computer By connecting to the statewide VHF packet network the ham station may be linked to the internet using an existing system. TelPac Node on Packet Network Internet E-mail E-MAIL VIA HAM RADIO How do Hams do that? PMBO
Antenna VHF Radio Data Interface Ham Computer HF Radio HF Antenna Distant PMB0 Where the incident is not within VHF range the radio link must be made on High Frequency. Any network station in the world that can be reached may be used. There are 24 in the US at the present time. E-MAIL VIA HAM RADIO How do Hams do that? Internet E-mail
Antenna VHF Radio Data Interface Ham Computer LAN USER COMPUTER Adding users’ computers (clients) to a LAN on the Ham computer permits individuals to conduct e- mail through the Internet. E-MAIL VIA HAM RADIO How do Hams do that? HF Radio HF Antenna The Ham Computer is now an e-mail server to the users. Internet Packet Network ROUTER
E-MAIL VIA HAM RADIO Review A digital ham radio station can tie any served agency to internet e-mail using Amateur Radio networks and digital messaging. Now for how a Telpac Node works...
E-MAIL VIA HAM RADIO WL2K TELPAC - WL2K’s New Telnet Packet Bridge (See October 2003, QST) A computer with internet access, TNC, antenna and vhf radio (i.e. a TelPac Node) on your Local Area Net (Packet LAN) can help bridge across the Last Mile. The internet access can be full time or dial-up. The PMBO to which the TelPac is linked via Telnet can be located anywhere in the world. There is nothing special about a TelPac Node – it is just a simple packet radio station running on Win98 or better and left running 24/7.
E-MAIL VIA HAM RADIO WL2K TELPAC NODE Antenna TNC Computer VHF Radio INCOMING CONNECT FROM PACLINK AGW STATION. TELNET LINK TO DISTANT WL2K PMBO An incoming packet connect to the Telpac Node is directed to a distant WL2K PMBO via Telnet The telnet exchange of e-mail takes place at the speed of the internet connection.
