Packet History of what I remember. ka3bvj Dennis
Well back in the 80 and 90's I was big user..The internet was not yet here and
the only internet was using 800 dial out numbers..And also same time there was
packet...The network on packet was very big at that time .The was BBS (NR3U)
near here that was a Satellite gateway which meant all the traffic was sent
and rec via that port..Than there was also an node here on a mountain  (MIDPA)
I think that was the ID. Which heard a lot mostly Williamsport,Pinegrove.I
used to connect Pinegrove via Midpa and at pinegrove there was a chat room
area which there was usually 3 or 4 of chatting there
I also used to do a lot of node hopping and traveled around the world on
packet.Some of those nodes are still active.Places like
England,Russia,Australia,Canada...One time while node hopping I found a worm
hole that was on the under water phone cable from New York to England..I also
at that time made a connection from my Dial gateway via packet went around the
world and came back to my 2 Meter rf system that was neat time from typing a
letter till it came out on the rf side was like a min. There was also big chat
rooms which were part of some of the packet dx clusters they were neat around
the xmas and new years..I would to see all this come back it was a neat time
in history..PS.we were using 2 freq's that time 145.010 and 145.070

My system on 2 meters was a Kenwood Hand held tnc was PacCom Tiny2 and
computer varied timex sinclair to a victor 9000 which I still have.

If anyone wants to add to this please let me know.
