Four data stations run almost continuously. Three of these are AFSK stations that run on 1200 baud. One is a wi-fi link with a hi-gain antenna.

1. A 2 meter radio with a Raspberry Pi running both a BPQ BBS and an APRS station. This station is also capable of sending and receiving email from the internet via radio using the WINMOR system. The red card mounted on the Raspi is a version of TNC-X (KISS TNC) that controls packets for the BBS:

2. A 2 meter radio (with a defective transmitter) is a receive only radio with a TT4 TNC that listens for APRS packets and posts them to the internet:

3. This is a radio that is running a different port (port #4), also from the BPQ BBS. This is the radio and KISS TNC that is running on 145.050 in 29 Palms. This station is able to link to packet stations on BGBEAR and BEARMT. Once connected to these stations, users can then connect to POTOSI, just outside of Las Vegas for a variety of packet stations there. The Raspberry Pi in the back ground contains the webserver that is providing the webpage that you are currently viewing.

4. This is an old Linksys WRT54GL router that has been reflashed with BBHN Firmware. Together with a TP-Link hi-gain antenna, this is now working as a mesh node in a point to multi-point system. The Raspberry Pi beside the router is working as a file server and webserver over a BBHN network:
