TKNet is a multi-protocol communications network for radio-amateurs in Corsica. It’s based on TCP/IP over radio links and VPNs using Plug and Play routers (TKBox). I’s almost completely built with free software. It provides sites and radio repeaters inter-connections (digital and analog) all over the island. This web site is self-hosted in Corsica, onto the TKNet virtual infrastructure distributed between two data centers in Ajaccio and Bastia.
Nota : TKNet network (and this web site) are under heavy construction. Due to experimental Work In Progress, several pages are only written in French for now. Apologies to our International visitors…
The new version of the interactive map is online. It will be updated soon 😉

TKNet team is working on migrating the network to AMPRNet / HamNet public IP addressing. The subnet corresponding to the whole island of Corsica will be announced directly in BGP from our data centers of Ajaccio and Bastia. Two central firewalls will control traffic inside TKNet, but also from/to the outside of the world, in […]
Our high points being connected in IP, we installed an ADS-B aircraft position receiver. It receives beacons transmitted by the aircrafts on 1090 MHz, and sends them to the site FlightRadar24.com. There, it’s possible to follow positions of aircrafts in real time. The callsign of the “radar” is F-LFKJ2. It’s installed on the high point […]
