Anybody uses Airmail over their HAM radio via Pactor ??
I am setting up a new shack(mobile) with PC control
and am planning to install an email solution when
Next G is out of reach. I am not so much interested
in the private networks because I also want to be able
to use it outside OZ (on our cat).

Some time back I was evaluating my options and find it
absolutely over the top that the private networks require
commercial grade transceivers to be legal.

I have decided
to stay with HAM and find this the much better and more
economical option not to say flexible.

If you use Pactor and Airmail, which controller do you use ?

Also what control software do you use for your transceiver or
do you tune manually ??

thanks

I think this would be a question you would post on an amateur radio forum... you are a licenced amatuer radio operator...right?

I'm guessing you mean that the Act requires only the use of "Type Approved" radios is what your referring to with this comment??
Its not the "Private" organisations but the law.

I only replied to what you wrote which was clearly wrong.
I don't see the need for the smart arse comments.

It is also the law that you have the appropriate licence to operate HAM radios.

Take a look at these web sites.

http://www.pca.cc.

Connection to the world via HF radio. Sailmail has about 10 frequencies at their Station near Newcastle NSW.

Joining cost are a bit heavy, presently $US 250/annum. They will accept applications from remote travellers.
