Mesh Applications

In Ventura County, we support several different types of applications on the digital mesh network:


We support a VOIP PBX on the network.  If you’d like an extension off the PBX, contact Paul, WD6EBY.   A Grandstream phone is recommended for best compatability, or a softphone (software phone).   Linphone for MacOS, Linux and Windows works well.  It can be downloaded here.

VOIP voice chat.  We run a Teamtalk voice chat server on the network.  It can be used any time, and we have a Sunday night net at 8:00 p.m.   The Teamtalk client software can be downloaded here.  If you’d like to partcipate, contact W6BI for an account on the Teamtalk server.

Keyboard Communications

There are MeshChat servers throughout the network.  They can be used to chat with other logged-in users.

There are three IRC servers linked together throughout Santa Barbara and Ventura Counties.   They are available for your use as services on the network.  Install an IRC client (HexChat works well for Windows) and join us!


The Teamtalk server supports video chat if your network link is high quality.

Beyond that, we have various webcams on the network. Most require an RTSP viewer to view them (either VLC or Mplayer for Windows).

An easier way to view them is on the Webcam Snapshot page managed by WB2YXY.  The URL on the mesh network is http://wb2yxy-mesh-server.local.mesh/snapshots/
