Robust Packet Radio

Group Description

This Robust Packet Radio Group is devoted to supporting and advancing the use of Robust Packet (RP) radio protocol and gear on the HF bands. This includes the following RP enabled modems:

SCS PTC controllers that support RP.
SCS DR-7400 & DR-7800 Dragon Pactor modems with RP enabled firmware.

We are not a general packet radio or Pactor group. Other groups exist to serve those interests.

If you are an amateur radio operator interested in experimenting with the HF Robust Packet radio protocol, feel free to join up. Most discussion revolves around HF RP APRS, RP BBS systems, RP keyboarding/chat, and terminal software.

10.1473 MHz USB dial is the primary global RP APRS frequency. There are several full-time I-gates active on this QRG in NOAM and EU, but more are needed.

North American non-APRS activity is usually on 3.598, 7.103, 10.1455,or 28.148 MHz. All USB dial assuming RF standard 1500 Hz CF.

NOTE 1:  Keep content clean, family friendly, and relevant to robust packet radio operations/gear. No politics or religious discussions allowed. Vigorous respectful debate is one thing, but personal attacks will get you banned.

NOTE 2: Unless it is obvious from your email address be sure to set your username to include your callsign. Otherwise your membership may be rejected as for all I know you could be a spammer trying to join.
