  • OT: Ham radio forum

    I uncovered an AEA PK-232 in my shop. Is there any use for one of these today? If so, can you recommend a ham radio forum advertise it?

        No, searching there uncovered no reference to the AEA PK-232. I should have been more critical.

        This one may be better: https://www.eham.net/reviews/view-product?id=218, at least they have reviews of it.

          If you are looking to advertise it, QTH.COM is popular among Hams.

            my guess it you should be able to find a local club pretty easily.
            for some reason I think you are in Northern Europe

              FYI, the AEA PK-232 packet radio device is pretty old. I had one back in the early days of packet radio, probably 30 years ago now.

              I've been off the air for years - is packet radio still a thing? Ancient technology...

              There are no stupid questions. But there are lots of stupid answers. This is the internet.

                Now that is funny, to some. Screw the rest.

                      Is this a TNC? Reminds a little of a Rig Blaster that I used to make over at West Mountain Radio when I graduated High School.

                          It was a cool job, I became a HAM while working there. At first all the boards were made across a street at a fab house, the metal cases were also made in the USA. Then one day on the web page they removed the "Made in the USA." One of our key suppliers worked very hard to coordinate manufacture in China. The final year of my job was fixing their mistakes. By the end of the year they got production down well enough I no longer had a job. I was the first one to go. The others were pretty smug that they still had a job. The owner sold the company to a father/daughter who promptly destroyed it with not knowing what the hell they were doing. Only one person stayed on to help them. Never trust another individual for your wages... I learned that at an early enough age, why I'm constantly developing additional income streams.

                            Who needs a Terminal Node Controller, buy a Key and do CW. More fun, less hardware. Dit. Dit.
