Dave, VE3DKX and Bryan, VA3OG were able to get up to the site and were able to configure the VE3PRC-7 KA-Node. So now, to reach stations that are outside of your stations reach, do the following:
C VE3PRC-7 <— This connects you to the “PRC” Node
Then connect onward to your destination.
This is the preferred method of packeting. It is a little more efficient, and has better reliability. Each of your packets is acknowledged by the node, which then takes responsibility of moving it onward. If packet collisions cause a missed packet, the node will repeat it automatically.
Try it out and enjoy packet again!
