I think packet radio is only 1200bps
"packet modem" that plugs into a computer to convert it to a TNC. A "Terminal Node Controller" is what Ham operators connect to their radio for the digital/analog conversion of the computer data
The packet modem was the BP modem by Tigertronics (1-800-8-BAY PAC). It comes with special communications software and the modem (a small 2-inch-square custom analog/digital modem based on the old Bell-202 standard). The BP draws 9ma of power directly from the serial port of the computer. No external power supply for the modem is needed with a standard PC.
The final piece of hardware in this setup is the actual radio transmitter/receiver (a [Radio Shack] HTX-202 Transceiver). I prefer this radio because it does not allow Wide receive 108-174Mhz. What this means is that it is less bothered by what is called "Intermod" or interference from ghost signals "mixing" with Ham signals. This is important in choice of radios for this type of work. Now the question was: "Can I hook all this up to my HP Palmtop?"
With my HP Palmtop I can run satellite tracking programs to locate Amateur radio relay satellites in 'real time" using REAL95.ZIP (palmtoppaper).
The Motorola Personal Messenger 100D is used with the Ardis network, while the [Mega Hertz] [All Points] Modem works with RAM Mobile Data. The two network shave slightly different coverage areas, so it's a good idea to check the service availability in the areas you most often visit.
Inet service is available..
