New Trimode KB5MAC in Spring Texas
A new trimode, KB5MAC, is now operational in Spring (about 21m NNE of Houston) on 40 and 80m, using an Icom7300 and Dragon modem & NVIS antenna. It is a sister station to W0MAC, one of the original Pactor gateways. Both are to remember W0MAC, Mac Atteberry who died in July 1999 in a Hermann Hospital Life Flight helicopter crash. Thanks go to all those who have made this possible!
These two trimodes are NVIS stations and complement KB5HCD trimode which has out-of-area coverage on the 80/40/30/20/18m bands. The three are designed to assist regional events in south east Texas.
