Our Lookout Point system 145.530 packet had its antenna changed recently. This was accomplished through the efforts of Rod KC7AAD our systems Tech. There have been some recent significant changes put in place by KC7AAD. More on this will be forthcoming.
Path to ELN on 145.53 is very good so this digi will stay on this frequency.
Todd K7PKT who is the sysop of one of our BPQ32 nodes has moved to 145.53. There is also a station in Lincoln County that shows up on the SPO node that links back via 440 to the Spokane Node stack. You have to move through each node to find the path.
SPO:K7PKT-2 on 145.530 as well as BPQ AXUDP.
SPORMS:K7PKT-10 145.530 this interlinks to WL2K
SPODX:K7TJ DxSpider Cluster and Telnet to k7tj.ewarg.org 7300
There are additional links from GEGLAN to other stations in EWA and WWA.
K7PKT (Spokane); W5KAV-1 (Rochester, WA); WA7V (Walla Walla); K7TJ-9 Lookout Point.
EWARG coordinated 440.125 at 9600 for use in interlinking systems in Spokane and the surrounding areas. Our 440 radio's are currently operational thanks to Karl AK2O's work we hope to get it linked in the near future.
Rod KC7AAD and Jay WS7I have been busy. We have built up a BPQ32 box that will be installed directly on Lookout Point. It will have 145.53, 440.125 the Spokane Interlink, as well as other capabilities.
Rod KC7AAD detailed his new system concepts at the June 2014 ARES meeting.
We also anticipate using IP and running a number of sites on IP directly over the Ham 18.104.22.168 Network. This will enable us to use VOIP to the remotes as well as a number of control advantages and postitive antenna and power control.
Our two remote sites currently are using a number of servers to acomplish their tasks. It looks like a power amplifier may well be in the works for the HF remote system.
