The following was sent out to members of NYC-ARECS for our local system.
I know that there are a few across NY State with similar ideas.  Let's
share what we can with each other.

For those who have expressed an interest in building out the NYC-ARECS
BBS network across the five boros using Raspberry Pi computers, this
tutorial from my friend John in Michigan will get you started.


The particular IP addresses, DNS and routing info will come from me when
you are ready.  Our plan calls for different 2 meter frequencies in each
boro or section of a boro so that we can overlap coverage areas and not
crash into each other.  Contact me directly when setting up your system.
A 25 watt mobile radio with power supply and external vertical base
antenna is what you need to set up to go along with your Pi computer
and TNC (see https://tnc-x.com/TNCPi.htm).  Two TNCpi boards and an
additional radio/antenna on UHF will be needed if you will also be
forwarding data over the air to another node instead of using your
internet connection.
