Welcome!Hello and welcome to the Packet Radio BBS interface at DB0ANF.
What's it all about?Well, before the internet became a public resource, the amateur radio community created their own network infrastructure, communicating via the packet radio network. Within this worldwide network, private and public messages can be exchanged using packet radio bulletin board systems. These packet radio BBS systems exchange messages using a store and forward system, so messages can be distributed worldwide.
Even if now the internet has taken over the main role, the packet radio BBS network is still very active. In order to provide access to it's information resources, we have set-up an interface to display current and historical public articles. Since it (mostly, but not always) contains very valueable information, our main focus has been put on creating a searchable interface to this whole bunch of information.
Beta TestThis system is in beta test and still being enhanced, so if you find any problem or have ideas for enhancements, please feel free to share them with us. We are also working on expanding our database with more historic messages. If you have an old BBS repository that you can share with us, please contact us.

People are different: While most of us use proper language and a proper discussion style, some don't. You might know them already from the various forums on the internet - or from real life ;-) Unfortunately you'll find a few of them on amateur radio too...
