Recently KD8PGB Dan Hurd, was awarded vanity call sign W5DMH by the FCC, I have changed over my Winlink station from KD8PGB to W5DMH and have since watched my traffic drop to near zero. Thought I would let everyone know here that it has been changed.

K9LAE 40 METER WINMOR NODE IS DOWN

The K9LAE 40 Meter WINMOR Node is down due to router failure. New router is on the way and as soon as it comes and I can configure it, the node should be back up. I will report when node is again operational.

Sorry for the inconvience.

KD8PGB-2 FT-857d + Bluetooth+ Win8 Tablet = Winmor Mobile

Thought I would share my mobile setup, I spent a considerable amount of time researching and many said this could not be done. A Rigblaster Blue Bluetooth interface connecting my FT-857d and my Win 8 Tablet for both radio control and audio. The target was a mobile platform with as factory of an install as possible with zero wires and all of the capabilities of my QTH. The end result is a clean wire free (except the usb power cable to the tablet on the left side and the head feed for the FT-857d head) system that is capable of :

VA7DGP-10 UPDATE: OFFLINE UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE

After getting the radio room floors and walls repaired. I was tacking up the coax and Internet cable to the wall. I moved the Dual band coax around the PC.immediately the PC shut off. I check the 110 v line, that was ok. Check power cable, that was OK. So I have one dead PC. I hope to get a new mother board, and if power surge,spike didn't kill hard drive I should be back on next week.

Later
