Shouldn't be a big deal, IG.
Ham packet is (or it will be for CitaNet access) solely text client.

The *,anpr.org will list my ham node (k2ne.ampr.org) as being "landline bbs interface." There's already a shell script over here for ham users, which will be the .ampr.org hand-off point.

If I get it configured ok on my end, it *should* be completely transparent to CitaNet text-client networking.

This is an obnoxious test message to see if networking gets this to uncensored. DogpoundII seems to be having issues with uncensored on networking...

Dunno ... maybe it just needs to be restarted.

I restart my BBS weekly...I keep having to manually @term <sessionID> on my outbound sessions to Uncensored because I keep getting "Failed to connect" in the long who list.

I will test whatever you want to push our way IG. Vince-q - it sounds like you are also writing a branch, would you be willing to share code based on any of the breakage?  Not saying you should, but it might make debugging easier.

Ok, failed to page to the next page.  Sorry for missing all of the replies...  (walks out of the room)

I am not writing anything, really. Just recompiling linux with the ax.25 stuff in it.

I am really thinking even that will not be needed. By the time packets actually get to the machine the ax.25 headers are already stripped by the TNC.

That is cool.  If you are ever in the Minneapolis area and you like that sort of thing the Pavek Radio Museum is worth a look.

Cool to see a ham radio room. I know we've had terrible solar conditions, but things will improve.
I run QRP from Philadelphia.

Bad solar conditions ... that must be why my WWVB clock hasn't synced up in days.

They also had to recently upgrade WWVB, perhaps it relates to that.

Oooh, you're right. Thanks for pointing that out.

"The WWVB broadcast system is being upgraded with new equipment to improve the reliability of the signal. In order to install this equipment, beginning on March 9, 2021 the WWVB signal may be operated on a single antenna at approximately 30 kW radiated power for periods up to several days in duration, and may have occasional outages. Periods of reduced power operation lasting longer than 30 minutes will be logged on the WWVB Antenna Configuration and Power web page, and any outage longer than five minutes' duration will be recorded on the WWVB Outage web page. Upgrades are expected to be complete by April 9, 2021."

So it looks like I can expect another week of bad reception. My homemade WWVB clock is drifting badly right now because it doesn't have a quartz oscillator on board; it just uses the software clock on the Arduino to keep time between radio synchronizations.

Been looking at LoRA a bit lately and ran across this.  Plug and play

World Amateur Radio Day will happen on April 19. Join the fun!
By the way, you can go to https://hamstudy.org for free study material. And now, thanks to COVID, you can also take your test remotely from there.

A bit of a follow-up on WWVB reception.

I had a location for my Arduino WWVB clock on a corner shelf in my bedroom, that had acceptable reception during the "good hours" (overnight), and detectable-but-unusable during the day. There was a spot just a few feet away on my dresser that had excellent reception overnight and pretty good during the day.

After the transmitter upgrades, the shelf location remained acceptable at night, but the dresser location became detectable-but-unusable even at night.

I don't know what "upgrades" they performed, but I don't like it.

So is ham radio still a hobby worth getting into nowadays? Or has it degraded into trash like everything else?

I think it depends on the area.

Problem is all the old timers are dying off. I have noticed a definite attitude change in that world.
