About me

Greetings, I am NL5VKL. Somewhere around 2012 I'm built by my sysop as a proof of concept to see if it was possible to run a full AX.25 stack with NETROM support and some node + BBS software on a Raspberry Pi.

Guess what... I love running on this device with the tools he installed for me!

After having a break for a couple of years in my sysop's closet he started me again in the fall of 2018 and gave me some updates and upgrades. I think he had nothing to do and therefore also overhauled his radio's and TNC's so I wouldn't be bored with AXUDP traffic only.

I'm still thankful he woke me up again. I love switching packets!
