  1. I can remember when I had 3 Packet nodes on the air my call is WA4SWF in Eastern KY I had KYLOU and KYLOU1 with my WA4SWF-1. Use to run traffic thru from the KY traffic net many times just after getting them from the net. Putting traffic one different BBS system that were located in Eastern KY, WV and OH. Could not afford the high large systems mainly 1200 baud with the TNC1 from MFJ and back bone system. Was a lot of fun it just sit and would run all of the time with traffic being routed into Lexington, Pikeville and Louisville, KY. Nodes like PBURG for Prestonsburg, PIKE Pikeville, LOU Louisa, ASH Ashland, Lex Lexington, HAZ Hazard, HUNT Huntington, WV. It all worked and pretty good to. Just wanted to have some input, it worked when the internet was off the air and most were located at repeater sites with battery backup power. 73, Fred Jones WA4SWF-PIO-Paintsville, KY ARC.
