I bought a soundcard interface a couple days ago. I have been monitoring the 2 meter band and have yet to find any packet activity and I am starting to get frustrated. I live in the Nashville area. Are there any active bbs frequencies I should monitor? Also, what keyboard to keyboard frequencies should I monitor. One more question, What are the most active sstv frequencies.

Hope it is helpful!

Hello

I am in the same boat!  Just ressurected my VHF/UHF here in Franklin (after moving here from Murfreesboro 1 1/2 years ago).  No packet signals detected ANYWHERE on 2 meters!!!!  :-(  There was at least SOMETHING at the time i took down the stuff in mid-2003.

I was wanting to play with linux packet (kernel AX-25 and JNOS/TNOS again).  I am listening on 145.770 right now (no MBOX setup).  

Antenna is just a discone in the attic at the moment until I decide how to make use of the limited space i have to work with (maybe a GP in the attic - heard they do really well).  I have a nice expansive attic space right about the room with the gear which makes for MUCH easier time getting SOMETHING going until I can work out something for outside.  I hear the nashville repeaters very well.

See if you can send a broadcast out on 145.770.  I am N4XHX call.

maybe we can start to revive some stuff.  i have a remote receiver in Murfreesboro with outdoor antennas and all (my folks' house) that I can remote control and listen to over internet.  Even on it, I can detect no packet activity on any of the previously active channels!

By the way, here at my office in Brentwood, I setup my scanner to monitor all the 2m packet freqs i knew of and discovered some occassional bursts on 140.010 at 1200 baud.  No decoder here so don't know who it is.  FYI.
