The North Western Repeater Group switched on their second Packet Node this morning. MB7NEL is located close to Burnley and should have good coverage of the local area. Please leave signal reports here or if you can access the node you can use the WALL command to leave a graffetti wall message or the IM command sends me a Telegram instant message. I've been working on the MENU command which gives you a choice of news, weather, amateur radio news, jokes, riddles, games and it's changing often at the moment. Our other packet node in Liverpool MB7NFI has all the same commands. Due to the silly licencing rules packet nodes not at the NOV holders main station address are not allowed to have a BBS so we are linking to GB7ROS for the BBS command. Using the BBS command on our nodes will automagically connect you directly to GB7ROS BBS.
