VHF Gateway Workshop - 6:30 am to 10:30 am Saturday March 16, 2019

EARC/ARES is planning a workshop to help Amateurs with interest in setting up their portable Windows computers and VHF transceivers to operate the Winlink Express email program, and other digital modes.

The workshop will physically connect your computer to your VHF transceiver, installing Winlink Express and making VHF gateway and peer-to-peer contacts. Participants must bring their equipment to the workshop.

The software training will include using some of the Winlink features sending and receiving email via VHF RF connections, message templates, GPS position reporting, ICS-309 logs, images editing, attachments and communication sessions for VHF packet and Internet. Time permitting both Packet and VARA software modems will be installed and tested.

Cost of the three-hour workshop and interconnect materials may be as much as $30 per attendee, to be paid at the door. Alternatively, there may be options to use materials procured by the participant that will lower costs.

Attendance is limited and subject to confirmation equipment is compatible with suggested cabling choices. The number of students is limited. Register early!

If you are interested, please email me at ah0a@arrl.org. Include the (1) PC model, (2) the version of Windows, (3) your transceiver model and (4) cables you believe are correct for digital modes -- ; information required for us to recommend preordering components. Once the computer and transceiver models are known we will recommend cabling for your equipment and a method to purchase them.

The workshop is organized around use of the Easy Digi interface board, which can be assembled in the first 30 minutes of the workshop. Software set up and verification of other devices will be supported, for example, Signalink. Please let us know what (5) interconnection interface, other than the workshop recommended Easy Digi board you want to use for software setup.

The workshop will be held from 6:30 to 10:30 on Saturday March 16th at the Manoa Public Library.

New DEM Repeater in Kahuku

New repeater in Kahuku 146.900 pl 103.5 This frequency pair overlaps with FFMB hence the CTCSS. It is a DEM repeater so it should be linked into 146.880 DH, 146.980 FFMB, 146.860 Manawahua and 146.760 Mokuleia. Much appreciation out to Robin and others for making that happen.

DMR Brandmeister info

The Club purchased two Motorola SLR5700 DMR repeaters. The first of these two repeaters was installed on May 5th, 2018 at our Maunakapu site replacing the Analog UHF repeater there on 444.100.

Since turning it on there has been quite a bit of activity from users and we are happy to see it going so well. Click here to the repeaters section where you find a link describing the setup and talkgroups for this repeater.

There is plans to install second repeater on 444.500 in town, coming around the end of September.
