KC8RYW simplex node 4018 is up! Try calling me!

Postby KC8RYW » Wed Feb 21, 2007 11:35 pm

I have the computer setup. It wasn't hard at all.

Now, all I need to run a line from the busy LED on the front to drive the COS. I found the transistor I need to take it from, but I need to work up the courage to deal with soldering into SMD. Motorola wasn't cool enough to add I/O to the GTX mobile.

The audio level coming out of the computer was fun to set on the GTX. I use HearClear, so it compresses the Tx audio. You can drive it with a pretty good audio level, and it will just run into gain reduction without clipping. It sounds good on a HearClear enabled radio. On a scanner, it just sounds really compressed. I don't have a deviation meter, so I had to wing it by guesstimating.

The only thing I want to fix sometime soon is getting a decent soundcard. The on-board motherboard sound has a pretty crappy noise floor.

I don't know why, but the user 'repeater' kept cranking the aumixer settings to full blast all the way around. Even the stupid inputs that do nothing but just add more to the noise floor problem (mic, cd, midi, etc). A little chmod on the default settings file, and now only root can change it. Problem solved.

Also coming soon -- an actual IRLP 902/927 repeater using an 800 MHz MaxTrac and a 900 MHz Maxtrac. Finding a set of tuned cans would be the kick to get the project rolling. I'm going to use the IRLP controller and computer as the only repeater controller. The ability to control the repeater through SSH is just too appealing.
