Re: Ham-Com 2010 in Plano, TX

Unfortunately, I won't be making Hamcom or the dinner this year, too many folks taking summer vacations at work right now.

Maybe next go around.

Any of your guys have a Kenwoody TS-480? It has some remote base capabilities that may do what you want.

Thought I had tornado #2 of the year, and the chaser of a 70 mph blast of wind out of the squall was pretty intense. Way too much rain too.

Finger memory == great loss. My club (DCARA) is the one that has the 443.525+ machine, using 118.8. Good repeater but little use unfortunately. The NT5NT 443.325+ PL 110.9 repeater is still nice and sensitive. Just barely have to touch the PTT on the MT2000 and it opens right up like it did before a...

Re: HAM-COM 2009 - June 12 & 13 - Plano, TX

I'm working days now, so won't make Hamcom but should be able to make dinner like last year.

>1900 works best for me as I can't escape 0rk until after that.

I suppose the usual Bone Daddys with everyone meeting up on NT5NT 443.525+ 110.9?

Will watch the thread for something different.

I'd assume you're using *, correct?

If you are, look for providers that support IAX (Inter Asterisk eXchange) as that makes it MUCH easier to work with.

Also, avoid Broadvoice. I've heard nothing but bad about them. Support is non-existent and it's easier to cancel AOL than them.
