EchoLink on FM38

Author: John Flanagan - Published 2006-01-15 12:49 - (3644 Reads)
We have had many requests for EchoLink access to FM38. Although we are listed in the ))EchoLinkdirectory, access to FM38 viaEchoLink(( is not enabled.

Since ))EchoLinkis used primarily on a windows platform, occassional lock-ups can leave the transmitter keyed indefinitely. The only fix is to exit and re-load theEcholink(( program. When a solution to this problem is found, we may consider implementing a full-time repeater link.

FM38 Receive Site Status

Author: John Flanagan - Published 2006-01-15 12:40 - (3341 Reads)
Remote receive site “F” (Menomonee falls) is down. This site will not be brought back up because we have decided not to renew our arrangement with the tower site owner.

Remote receive site “U” (UWM/Milwaukee east side) site has been temporarily disabled due to an observed audio level imbalance with the other sites. We will re-enable it as soon as the audio levels are re-adjusted.

Hi Folks,

Emil will be uploading some pictures he and Bob took on Saturday as they worked to repair the $1.98 fuse holder that was the culprit in the FM38 outage last week.

Speaking of photos, if anyone has some interesting photos to share on this site, feel free to upload them to your personal MyTiki/My Files area and send a message to Emil or myself (kc9eeq) and we’ll help you make them available.

Kc9eeq clear!

Dayton 2005 Attendance Increased!

Author: John Flanagan - Published 2005-06-12 03:00 - (10954 Reads)
FM38 was well represented at the 2005 Dayton Hamfest (author included). The weather was great and everyone had a good time!

N9DII brought to my attention that according to an ARRL article posted June 10, Dayton Hamvention attendance was up by 542 over last year. The article cited a total attendance of 20,411 as compared to 19,869 in 2004. This is rather surprising given all the talk about the declining number of licensed amateur radio stations.
