Packet Operations Type III, Part B is a follow-on course to Packet Operations Type III, Part A. It includes both lecture and hands-on packet activity. The lecture is focused on details of Outpost and PacFORMS set up. Message addressing within the Santa Clara County ARES/RACES BBS network is also discussed.

For the in-class exercises, students will need to use a packet station to send and receive messages. The packet station can be one that the student owns or one that they borrow. It must be capable of connecting to at least one of the Packet BBSs via RF (2M, 220, or 440)
