AL0Y-2 is a new Packet and VARA FM gateway in North NJ

Hello, all.

I have put a new Packet and VARA FM station on the air, in an attempt to fill the void we have in North New Jersey. the RMS gateway is located in Wayne NJ (FN20vw) and is operating 24/7 on 145.050MHz. with an OMNI antenna and 50 Watts of power.

If you are located near the station and want to try it out or use it regularly, please feel free to do so.
Any inquiries, send me a Winlink message ([email protected])

W4UVA-10 back in service, new and improved

I am delighted to announce that, at long last, W4UVA-10 is back in service. The new configuration on 2m is dual-mode AX.25 (using UZ7HO Soundmodem with FX.25 enabled) and VARA FM (narrow). Remember that unlike AX.25 packet - which supports multiple stations on the frequency simultaneously - VARA FM wants the frequency to itself with just two stations talking to each other. No mixing AX.25 and VARA FM, either. Listen-before-transmit is essential.

My plan is to add a 70cm channel with VARA FM (wide) and perhaps high-speed packet. Coming soon...
