Netrom-Node mini-Howto

Karl Larsen,

v1.10, 19 October 1998

This document describes how to setup the ax25-utilities package for Amateur Radio such that it makes Netrom Nodes for the Node program and the BBS software from John-Paul Roubelat, F6FBB. The DOS G8BPQ Switch makes a bbs node and many features, it was expected that the Linux ax25-utils would have a similar capability. This was not the case. Help came from John Ackerman, N8UR who put a message on the Linux-Ham SIG that he had done the BBS node and the info was on his web site! When the information was tried it didn't work properly but much was learned about the technique. Help from Tomi Manninen, OH2BNS did the trick. Nodes for the BBS and the Node and the DX Cluster were made and work fine.
