[aprssig] Finding a frequency for the East Coast Packet Backbone

I’m trying to document east coast packet frequencies from Maine to GA for
our 9600 baud backbone:

http://aprs.org/ec9600net.html



Below is what we have found so far.



It might be interesting to connect to these nodes and see what kind of
network they have…



We know there is a 145.01 node at CAMELBACK-9 in EPA.



And lots of packet in NC:

I had a chance to go up Howard's Knob on the edge of Boone and do some
Packet sniffing today.  I can confirm that there is packet in NC on the
following frequencies:

145.010 MHz
145.090 MHz
145.630 MHz
223.400 MHz
446.500 MHz

Packet isn't dead in North Carolina.  According to the site below, 145.01
MHz is still in use as the state backbone:

http://www.w4bfb.org/packet.php

Here in Boone, NC (3500 ft. altitude) I can hear packet stations on a
number of frequencies including 145.01 MHz although I usually can't decode
them.  You can expect to hear the stations in central NC from Clingman's
Dome and Roan Mtn., and perhaps from Comer's Rock as well.
