MB7NEL is a North Western Repeater Group Packet Node, more information can be found here.

MB7NEL is probably unusual in its setup. On the radio site, a Tait TM8110 radio is connected via a CM108 USB soundcard to a Raspberry Pi 2 Model B. The Pi uses Linux and Direwolf to connect to BPQ32 on a cloud VM via a Tailscale VPN.

A custom written application MENU provides news, sport, weather, QRZ lookup, jokes, trivia, games and more. MB7NEL isn't licenced, due to strange rules, to host its own BBS so links to GB7ROS for BBS services. Using the CHAT command you will be connected to the world wide Convers chat system.
