BBS Forwarding Links


Target Audience

This page is primarily intended for BBS sysops who may be interested in linking with our network, and for other people who may be interested in the types of networking links maintained by the Santa Clara County ARES/RACES packet network. 


Forwarding Partners

Just one link to the rest of the BBS network is theoretically sufficient to be able to deliver a message to any other BBS.  But the more links to different BBSs, the fewer hops messages will take to reach that destination.  The Santa Clara County ARES/RACES BBS network maintains forwarding links with the following BBSs.

Call Sign AX.25 Connect BBS Address Location Notes
AG6QO AG6QO-4 Winters, CA Official NTS relay station
KF6NHT KF6NHT-4 Woodside, CA Primarily for sysop testing for N6ZX
N0ARY N0ARY-1 Mt. Umunhum, CA South Bay, Santa Cruz, Monterey
N6RME N6RME-1 Diamond Springs, CA Greater Sacramento area
N6ROE N6ROE-3 Whittier, CA Greater Los Angeles area
N6ZX N6ZX-4 Woodside, CA San Mateo County - Coastside and Bayside
W6RAY W6RAY-3 San Joaquin Valley, CA Park Ridge (east of Fresno), covering the South Central Valley

The forwarding schedule changes over time for various reasons.  We'll try to keep this page relatively up-to-date.  Treat this information as "typical" or "representative".
