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.

APRS - Send a message to the station. You should get a confirmation message back. The APRS method should be available all day long and whenever the NCS is on APRS.
