Network Access using AX.25 over VHF Amateur Radio

Overview

AX.25 is a protocol based on the X.25 protocol and uses amateur radio call signs for addresses. It is efficient for low bandwidth, lossy environments, such as VHF/UHF radio. This makes it ideal for access to the packet BBS network from anywhere in Santa Clara County. The use of VHF radio means RF coverage throughout the county is good enough for most locations to reach at least two of the packet BBS systems.
