Packet Check-in

Some Net Control Stations conduct digital check-in on their assigned net nights. Hours vary, but usually run between 6:00 and 9:00 PM LT. Packet check-in may be temporarily suspended during the voice net.

There are several different ways to check in on packet radio. Sometimes you connect to the station using the indicated mailbox callsign, and sometimes you connect to the indicated PBBS and leave mail for that station.

145.05 - Connect to mailboxes on the Charlotte LAN using node "CLT" or digipeater "PARS". From another LAN frequency, connect to your local node, connect to "CLT", then connect to the mailbox.

145.07 - Connect to mailboxes on the Gaston County LAN using nodes "GASTON" or "DITTO". From another LAN frequency, connect to your local node, connect to "GASTON", then connect to the mailbox.

WIGBBS - Connect to WIGBBS on 145.07, or connect to the "DITTO" node and pick option "BBS". Leave mail for the NCS on the BBS, and you'll be counted as a packet check-in. WIGBBS is available from most LAN channels in the Charlotte area.

NC-ADN - These mailboxes and BBSs are on the North Carolina ARES Digital Network on 145.09 in the central piedmont. NC-ADN is available from several LAN channels in the Charlotte area. To access the network for packet check-in, do this:
