MB7NEL is using BPQ32 software by John Wiseman G8BPQ, details can be found here.
BPQ32 is running on an Oracle cloud virtual machine connected by a VPN (Virtual Private Network) to a Raspberry Pi 2B at the registered node site. The RPi 2B is interfaced to a Tait TM8110 radio via a modified CM108 USB soundcard and Direwolf sound modem software.
MB7NEL is using a Diamond X30 antenna.
Due to strange licensing rules packet nodes not at the licencee's main station address are unable to run a BBS (Bulletin Board Service) so we have linked to our friend Dave M0LMN's BBS on GB7ROS. The BBS is accessed using the command BBS and I would encourage anyone using MB7NEL to create an account on the BBS and leave M0NFI a message with your approximate location and what our signal is like so we can confirm our expected coverage. You can also leave us a message on the node using the WALL and IM commands.
We also have a link to the wwwconv chat system using the command CHAT
