Carl,
I have sent you an email who purchased the receiver.


Re: Jamboree On The Air - Philippines - Echolink

Was asked how to contact via EchoLink, so here is an overview:

Log into the Echostar software and look through the station list for DX7HQ (Dumaguete, Negos Oriental, Philippines). Connect to DX7HQ and call "CQ JOTA station DX7HQ".
 
We will be doing final radio set-up starting at 4pm PDT (Friday) and listening for JOTA calls starting at 6pm PDT. I'll be helping out until midnight PDT. 
 
If you want to test, give me a call in advance on the DX7HQ EchoLink repeater, DU7/AI6US. Remember, 00:00 UTC is  8am local time, so don't get too crazy with the hour for contact. :)

A quick look at Google Translate and it seems to work pretty good for Tagalog.  It can help you get a few words or phrase figured out.   https://translate.google.com  Although, most filipino's speak pretty good english, if you can understand the pronunciation!

Re: Equipment Planning Question #elmer

Alan - W6WN
 

Hi Robert,

Since Greg made mention of my remoting into my radio, I'll chime in. I have an ICOM 7300. The 7300 is 160 - 6 meters only so won't help you with 2 meters. The Yaesu 991A covers 160 through 70 CM, and is comparably priced to a 7300 at around $1,000. However, during my research, I came across a number of comments about problems with the 991A, and I decided to go with the 7300 and a separate, dual-band VHF/UHF ICOM 2730. 

Part of my thinking was that I wanted a really good base station that would last me for at least a few years, but I didn't want to move an expensive receiver back and forth to my car once I decided to go mobile. The 7300 has been flawless, and also allowed me to remote into it with a laptop or PC from anywhere I have an Internet connection.

A lot of great suggestions were offered above for third-party Remoting solutions, but all involve some level of complexity to setup. Here are my suggestions:

1. Start Simple. Don't try to setup what you first described right off the bat. You would likely get overwhelmed (if you're not already :)

2. If you want remote access to reach two meter repeaters, why wait for a radio? Sign up on Echolink.com now and download the desktop and phone apps. It's free. Get yourself a decent headset that will plug into your PC or laptop. I use a Logitech H390 USB headset that costs all of $18, including shipping, and gets great sound reports. Search for the W6EK repeater in the Echolink app and hop on. Join us for the weekly SFARC Net on Thursdays, and the Elmer Net every other Wednesday. Easy Peasy!

3. Now you've bought yourself some time to do your research on rigs and control methods and make your selection. I see you currently have a Technician class license. I recommend you think about what you would like to own once you get your General or Extra-class license and buy accordingly, with an eye towards expanded band privileges. 

4. Once you're ready, order your new receiver(s) and get a modest single- or dual-band vertical antenna. Good, dual-band verticals under 6' tall can be had for less than $100 and are hardly noticeable. Install it on your roof as high as you can (or wherever your spouse will let you), and run a few feet of good cable into the house. That way, you can set up a base station, close by, in your own home, and then experiment with remoting into it, starting with a laptop right next to your rig, so you can see what's going on at both ends.

5. Once you perfect that, move your laptop to to the living room and make it work from there.

6. Then you can think about moving the whole affair to your preferred remote location. There, you can put in an even bigger antenna if you like. I have a Diamond X510 dual-bander that's about 17' tall at my house. With the 50-watt 2730, it gets out just fine, and I can hit repeaters all up and down the Sacramento Valley, as well as into Amador and Placer County. The 2730 moves back and forth between my home and car as needed. (My car has a dual-band mag-mounted antenna that also moves to different cars as needed :)

I'd like to make a motion to send $50 to the fund from SFARC.
