Welcome to VKRadio
VKRadio is a hobbyist radio communication oriented network, with a focus on
friendly interaction and user input into the content and future direction of
the net.

All with an interest in radio communication are welcome in this net. It
is suggested, but not mandatory that either real names or amateur callsigns
(if you have one) be used as your handle on the net.

Rules for this net are simple. Firstly, respect each other. No

No discussions encouraging illegal activity.

Finally, and most importantly, have fun!

This forum contains echomail areas hosted on Nightmare BBS You can browse local echomail areas, italian fidonet areas and a selection of international fidonet areas, reading messages posted by users in Nightmare BBS or even other BBSs all over the world. You can find file areas too (functional to fidonet technology). You can browse echomail areas and download files with no registration, but if you want to write messages in echomail areas, or use fidonet netmail (private messages with fidomet technology), you have to register. Only a minimal set of data is required, functional to echomail and netmail usage (name, password, email); a registration and login with facebook is provided too, to allow easy registration. If you won't follow rules (each echomail areas has its own, regularly posted in the echomail), your account may be suspended;
