NEDA Annual 1994
By 1994, the North East Digital Association (NEDA, ‘north-east’ meaning places north and
east of St Louis, Missouri, USA) had
promoted into existence the
Western Hemisphere's largest Amateur Radio packet network. Their
Annual from the same year serves as a record of what they needed to know to get
to that point and as a reference for us today.
The annual includes:
- Introduction to packet radio;
- How to buy and use a TNC;
- What is a network and how does it work?;
- Dozens of technical articles;
- The best from four years of NEDA Quarterlies;
- More than complete TheNET X-1J networking and user manual including background info;
- Command information for BBS programs and DxCluster;
- Sample BBS, CROWD and keyboard sessions;
- Monster glossary of packet radio terms.
By kind permission of Tadd Torborg KA2DEW, it's hosted here. It's a large file and is therefore offered in three different file sizes — one being the original and the other two being downsampled versions.
Other NEDA documents are available from Tadd's archives of NEDA documents.
