Supporting HamBSD


Current status:
It is possible to run a receive-only IGate using a KISS TNC.

Current goal:
Continue to improve aprsd(8) and aprsisd(8) to enable use as a digipeater and bi-directional IGate.

The HamBSD project aims to bring amateur packet radio to OpenBSD, including support for TCP/IP over AX.25 and APRS tracking/digipeating in the base system.

HamBSD will not provide a full AX.25 stack but instead only implement support for UI frames. There will be a focus on simplicity, security and readable code.

The amateur radio community needs a reliable platform for packet radio for use in both leisure and emergency scenarios. It should be expected that the system is stable and resilient (but as yet it is neither).
