W7PLC-10 changes

"Upgraded" from KPC-3+ TNC to VARA FM, now active on 144.950MHz in the Olympia, WA area. Using a Yaesu FT-2900R and a dual band antenna at 30 ft. Possibility of UHF operations in the future.

W7PLC-10 Update

Station is running RMS Packet and although I don't use Winmor it will be terminated at my station. I have upgraded to VARA HF 4.0.1 and it is a vast improvement over Winmor. Waiting for a 2nd HF radio to upgrade to a Hybrid station, radio is available, budget is not.

Replaced the desktop computer and worked out all be Microsoft bugs in Windows 10 so it is running smoothly. WDT needs to establish a relationship with Microsoft so we can avoid crashes whenever MS pushes an update, 'nuff soapbox.

W7PLC-10 outage

W7PLC-10 will be out of service until Mar 5, possibly longer due to a computer failure.
