I am the Stafford County Virginia AMPRNET IP address coordinator. AMPRNET is the Amateur Radio version of the internet. It uses TCP/IP computer communications over the radio, much as your computer does over the DSL, Cable, or POTS (Plain Old Telephone Service) line.

Most hams have migrated to the Internet, but there's a few somewhere that still like TCP/IP packet radio. Although I'm not using TCP/IP now, I'm planning to get back up and running soon. First I'll have to install Tnos, (the Tampa Network Operating System,) on my Linux computer again. After it's up and running over the Internet I'll repair and dedicate one rig to to packet.

If you are in Stafford County Virginia, and want an IP address for your Nos, just look me up in the CB. I'll "dust off" the old records, and issue you an address.

If you are active in Packet Radio and want to take over the position of Stafford County Virginia AMPRNET IP address coordinator, then look me up in the QRZ callbook and contact me about it.

I need info and sources for AMPRNET IP addresses for my current location. If you can help then please look me up in the CallBook and contact me about it.
