Digipeaters and PBBS

In addition to our analog repeaters on 144, 220, 440, and 900 systems WECA also operates three user accessible packet radio nodes on 145.05, 145.09, and 441.00 Mhz. These nodes are interconnected with the greater New York City packet radio network by 220 Mhz and UHF links. Two packet radio bulletin board systems (PBBS) are affiliated with WECA. These systems provide for store-and-forward message capability. Packet radio has recently emerged as one of the fastest and most efficient means of transmitting information on the amateur radio bands worldwide. For more information, please contact our Digital Modes Director at KD2DOE@Weca.Org.
