- Feb 2, 2013I do not think it is currently possible to do so, Andre, but I am gratified
to see the question asked as I am a long-time advocate of distributing
Packet bulletins addressed to ALL via HF multicast, as opposed to the
point-to-point networks that have traditionally carried that kind of
Free of the square peg in a round hole job of distributing bulls addressed
to ALL, the point-to-point Packet network would finally have a chance to
realize its full potential.
I am currently off of HF due to a move to a new location. When I am set up
again for HF, I intend to see what FLAMP can do in this area. To do so will
require a new, parallel HF multicast network to work in conjunction and
cooperation with the Packet net. Once something like that is demonstrated, a
way to operate the AMP2 protocol from or with BPQ would be on a lot of folks
Right now, there are few who would see the utility there, as most FLAMP
operation has been within the EMCOM community. As far as I know, nobody
besides myself has utilized it yet with bulletin distribution in mind. (
Almost all of my test transmissions with AMP protocol over the years has
been with ARRL bulletins. )
I'll see what I can do about that soon, assuming that I can find others
interested in the experiment here in my hemisphere.
Here's an article I wrote some years ago about the advantages of a combined
point-to-point/multicast HF network:
