HB1BBS Packet Radio System
| QTH: Ouwerkerk, The Netherlands  JO11XO 51.37.48N 003.59.01E | CB: 27.235 MHz FM | AXUDP: HB1BBS.NET UDP 93 | APRS.HB1BBS.COM | TELNET: HB1BBS.NET |

HB8NOS (INT-Node)

HB8NOD:HB8NOS aims to be the central ax/ip/udp node for the Netherlands. 
The node routes are maintained manually based on quality parameters and geographic location with the aim of avoiding ghost routes and nodes as much as possible. HB8NOD:HB8NOS can be connected by a netrom node through the internet by connecting to:

HB1BBS.NET UDP 93 B


HB9NOS (RF-Node)

HB9NOS uses the LinBPQ software running on a Raspberry PI 3+ with Rasbian v4.1.6-v7 as operating system. To make connection to the transcievers TX and RX signals and decode the packets Direwolf is used. HB9NOS and the APRS I-gate are online 24/7 on 27.235 MHZ FM. HB9NOS is connected to the internet to setup netrom links to other stations and act as gateway between RF and the internet.

Netrom/Node (BPQ32)

BPQ allows a computer to act as a Node in a NET/ROM compatible AX25 network, and to support a multiuser Mailbox. The switch section allows up to 32 ports, supporting a number of radio protocols.  The application supports up to 64 connections. The software includes an APRS digipeater and an interface to APRS/IS.

HB8NOS uses the BPQ32 software running on a windows 2016 server hosted by strato.
HB8NOS is a AX25/TCPIP/UDP/AGW gateway that is used to make connections through the different packet software services. HB8NOS is host of the HB1BBS packet radio BBS and main mail forward system for internal en external clients. 

HB8NOS/HB9NOS is 24/7 online but to keep the nodelist as clean as possible it is restarted a few times a week. Node mappings are used in the bpq32.cfg file from HB8NOS to keep the nodes in some kind of local route from my one point of view. If you see something strange or have any recommendations? I like to hear them.

From the node HB8NOS it is possible to make a connection to the other systems in the network by using the following commands. 

JNOS >> HB3NOS Jnos BBS system
CBN   >> HB9NOS RF Netrom node 27.235 MHz FM
VAX   >> HB1VAX OpenVMS BBS system
PMS   >> HB1PMS Mailbox system
BBS   >> HB1BBS BPQ NLD mailbox


Netrom/Node Route Mapping

HB8NOS/HB9NOS is setup as a internet gateway to let all other packet radio systems connect to the internet through AXIP. 

Main backbone connection is between HB8NOS and HB9NOS
The netrom quality parameters of the AXIP port are set to:  

  • MINQUAL=100
  • QUALITY= 220

To keep the netrom node list clean from old en dead nodes the nodelist is not saved.

  • AUTOSAVE=0

If you are running a netrom node, please don't save your nodelist and restart your node software at a regular basis. Also don't use INP3 mode, please disable this option in your mapping.

Netrom/Node Network Nodemap

A BPQ web page is maintained showing the BPQ nodes here.
If you want your information to be shown on this map, and you have an Internet link, add the line LOCATOR=XXnnXX to the top of your bpq32.cfg file. (Where XXnnXX is your maidenhead location (aka grid square). You can find your locator using this site.

Netrom/Node Network Chatmap

A BPQ web page is maintained showing the BPQ chat nodes here.
I have made some effort in connecting various chatnodes so we can build up a chat channel that can be acces from all over the packet radio network, so far not many people respond to my messages on the network. But some did and a am very happy with that. So far we have three chatnodes connected in the network.

  • HB5NOD:HB5NOS Henk (NL) (HUB)
  • AT3XHB/AT3XHB (AT)
  • RRRCHT:DX3RRR-4 (NL)

Thank you for joining the network. If you intressed in connecting the chat network please contact me.

 Locked Routes

Normally routes to other nodes are learned from NODES broadcasts,  but routes can be locked if you want to use other than the normal port quality change some of the L2 parameters, or enable INP3 Mode. If you set IGNOREUNLOCKEDROUTES=1 to a PORT config only routes in this list added to your table. Format is:
CALLSIGN,QUALITY,PORT[,MAXFRAME,FRACK,PACLEN,INP3Flag] MAXFRAME, FRACK. PACLEN if stated override port defaults.  INP3Flag = 1 enables INP3, 0 or null disables. If using INP3 you should normally disable normal quality based routing by setting QUALITY to 1 - eg HISCAL-12,1,1,0,0,0,1
If not using INP3 (recomended) the quality of the routing can be set for your neighbours so you are in contole:

HB9NOS,254,2,0,0,0,0  (Internal connection HB8NOS/HB9NOS)
NL9ZZE,180,2,0,0,0,0    (External connection nearby)
NL5HAR,170,2,0,0,0,0   (External connection fare away)

Normally the node will try to keep links open to all its neighbours. 
This can be disabled by setting INP3Flag to 2. Note that locking a route with QUALITY=0 will prevent the station connecting to you.
