“Operating an Amateur Station Remotely”
by Bob Beyer, KE2D
The Wednesday April 11, 2018 Delaware Valley Radio Association meeting will feature a presentation on “Operating an Amateur Station Remotely” by Bob Beyer, KE2D.
As more hams face limited antenna options, or need to travel away from home often, the concept of operating an Amateur Radio station by remote control is becoming more common. Bob will discuss the concept of what is required for remote station control, some of the present options and approaches, and then talk specifically about the RemoteHams solution that he uses. After presenting slides, he hopes to actually run the application and connect to his station at home.
First licensed in 1972 when a young member of the DVRA, Bob is an active contester and enjoys CW. He currently works in the broadcast industry.
All are welcome to attend. A combined Directors/Business Meeting will be held from 6:30 to 7:30 PM, followed by a social/refreshment period from 7:30 to 8:00 PM, a five minute announcement of this month’s upcoming activity dates, and the featured talk at 8:05 PM. All will be held at Our Lady of Good Counsel Church on Lower Ferry Road, West Trenton. Feel free to join for all or part of the meeting.
See you there. More details at http://www.w2zq.com/
