Welcome to the W0PC Gateway stations. I established the Gateway stations to assist with emergency operations. The stations are listed as "Public" to promote use in training of ham radio operators as well as to insure the equipment is working when the "Big One" strikes. There is nothing like waiting until a disaster to find out the equipment doesn't function, software is out of date or the available radio operators don't know how to use it. Feel free to use the stations. If you find a problem with either of them, please send me and email.
My Name is Eduardo
Located at Riverside County , in Perris California.
Here is my HF Station set-up
KN6B-15 - - Winmor 1600 - - Dial Frequency >> 7. 096.500 MHZ . at 40 meter Upper Side Band ( U S B ).
My Equipments are Yaesu FT840 - 100 watts Transceiver and a Signalink Interface . Antenna Tuner MFJ Versa Tuner 3 ( Model 962-D )
The Antenna is Home brew Single Element Rotatable Dipole Elevated at 35 feet above the Ground.
After finally getting registered with WINLINK, my OS decided to deny me access to my network, so after a quick reload of Xubuntu 14.04 LTS 32 I am back on the air.
The system is part of a LinBPQ (BPQ32 written for Linux geeks) node/BBS/chat/RMS system I have been testing. It has been so stable (with the exception of the network issue) that I decided to make it a permanent fixture in my shack.
Now I am considering a TriMode station as well. That will necessitate another HF rig (poor me) and another antenna but it should be doable.
My HP/XP desktop running the gateways finally gave up the ghost last night. Just as well - it's old and tired like me. I'm installing a new WIN 7.1 (almost new, unused Dell dual processor laptop). The Gateways should be back on line today. I know the 40 meter GW is popular so I'll have that on line first. Will post a back on line message when done.
Welcome to a Winlink Gateway located in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina. Station is located about 60 miles North of Asheville, NC. Equipment is Kenwood TS-480HX scanning 3 bands with output of about 150 watts, LDG AT200 Pro auto tuner, Windows 7 computer, Pactor 3 modem, UPS, 40 amp. DC power supply feeding a Power-Gate and Power Guard to protect back-up/bridging battery. An auto-start/transfer propane whole house generator rounds out the installation. Antenna is 80 meter loop up about 25-30 feet.
Solar Power for the house with battery backup provides uninterrupted power for the NJ7C RMS station. Net metering allows excess power generated during the day to be sold to to the utility. Never having another electric bil is very nice! System details are shown at //www.chidester.org/SolarProject/SolarProjecti.htm
