Involvement in the LDS Preparedness Event is Cancelled

By Ron KF5MTU on March 26th

Hi everyone,

I am going to cancel our involvement in the LDS Preparedness event due to lack of information. The number that I was given to the church has been disconnected and I have been unable to determine where to call to see if this event is still going on. So if you were planning on helping, thank you for your consideration and we will put our efforts towards other events.



New SCARES RMS Gateway & BBS

By Gary W5BI on January 9th

A new packet radio server has been installed at the Rainbow repeater site. Features include an RMS Gateway (NM5SC-10) and a classic Bulletin Board (NM5SC-1). Both are accessible on 145.010 MHz.

A list of client commands for the BBS has been posted on the NMSCARES website in the files section under Packet Radio. When first connected to the BBS, you will be asked for your basic credentials, such as name and location. You will then have basic access to the system. The BBS supports messaging, bulletins and files.

Here are a few basic BBS commands to get you started:
H       Shows short help
L       List all recent messages
LM      List my messages
LB      List bulletins
RM      Read my messages
RB      Read bulletins
R xxx   Read message/bulletin xxx
KM      Kill my messages that have been read
SP callsign      Compose/send message to callsign
C       Enter conference
CW      List callsigns currently in conference
.W      Who's in conference (while in conference)
.Q      Leave conference    (while in conference)
