Digital modes?

 Anyone in the area run any digital modes? I hear some APRS packet but that's pretty much it. At least unless you count Dstar, apparently I've heard one of the Cincinnati Dstar repeaters. I have a MFJ 1278B Multimode Data controller and an AEA PK-12 packet modem that are going fairly unused so far. I used my PK-12 a lot back in the 90s when packet was still pretty hopping. Looks like that's all dried up and all anyone cares about anymore is APRS.

I'm thinking about building a sound card interface for software digital modes. I found one here. Pretty simple, I think. Just gotta order the parts from somewhere like Mouser or Digikey and then build it up. Shouldn't take more than an hour to build. PSK31 looks interesting to try. I've been listening on 2m ssb for anything and I hear nothing. Guess I need to build up my Softrock RXTX or get my ts520 going. :)

Password Boogie

 Hey guys, there's been some confusion about the password that is assigned when you first create an account. You don't have to keep that password, no way. You should be able to log in once and then you have the option to change it to a password you can remember. Just click the "My account" link under your name and then select "Edit" and change it there.

The assigned password is just a way for the system to confirm your email address is valid.

If you guys have any problems please let me know.

IRLP

Anyone using the IRLP on 444.025 Mhz + offset and 74.4 CTCSS? Curtis has information about his system at http://2590salem.webs.com/4106.htm Nice way to talk to an area when their is no direct propagation available.

New Website

 

Welcome to the new website for the Whitewater Valley Amateur Radio Club

Please feel free to look around. There are a lot of features that weren't possible with the old site. Everyone can create an account here and it's recommended. Unregistered users can view any page but they can't leave comments. Once you are registered I can promote you to Club Member or Officer permissions. Please enter your callsign in the field provided on the registration form. Members will be able to read and leave comments, run a blog, and edit pages. Officers can also post stories to the front page here.

I'm pretty excited about this new site and the potential it has. It should be significantly easier to maintain and additional people will be able to update and modify the content very easily. You need only your web browser to edit content on this site. I've made a best effort to transfer over content from the old site. I will be making edits to it over time to bring it up to date. I will also be working on the site itself to potentially add new features over time as need be.

If you would like to view the old site, it is still available here.

Enjoy!
