http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Amateur_radio what the heck are you talking about?
Hazel Park Amateur Radio Club just down the road
USECA Utica Shelby Emergency Communication Association
Arrow Communication Association This is the awesome group out of Ann Arbor who runs the bus to Dayton.
CHIRP Open Source Radio Programming Software (primarily VHF/UHF Mobile and Portable rigs currently)
N3FJP N3FJP Windows-based logging software. AClog is Matt's logger of choice, and N3FJP also makes a full suite of contesting software, including networkable Field Day loggers.
N1MM+ N1MM+ is windows-based contesting software. Steep learning curve but reportedly very good once you get past that.
cqrlog "The world's best linux logging program!" according to the website. Seems to be pretty popular linux-based logger. no contesting loggers yet, but is apparently in process
ARRL The Amateur Radio Relay League. National ham radio society.
FCC Federal Communications Commission site for the Amateur Radio Service
Projects and Documents
People have been discussing setting up a permanent Radio Station at i3 Detroit. Band and power have been discussed lightly at this moment I am not certain if any decisions have been made.
A permanent station / repeater may support features such as:
* APRS Automatic Packet Reporting System * CW also called Morse Code * VHF equipment to work local repeaters or direct communication with local hams * HF transceiver and antenna for regional and DX (long distance) communication * PSK and other digital modes * ATV amateur television (TV over UHF ham bands)
please take a moment and share your interesting ideas and comments.
I know there's some CSVs circulating out there. Upload 'em here!
Radio Configs from KD8WCR
I've started to keep my radio configs in a git repo, hosted on github! Sounds crazy? well it is super awesome. Github not only supports editing plain text in the web interface but also parses CSV files very well into a sexy table format. So yay! Maybe I'll even make one of those fun github hosted web pages for this. Wo now, getting geeky up in here.
Feel free to fork, or submit a Pull Request. If all that is too much for you, and you have suggestions just let me (jtrip) know.
Semi-Permanent APRS I-Gate
I've been giving some thought to putting together an APRS I-Gate for i3 Detroit. The following is the current proposed equipment list:
- Hy-Gain VB-25FM 5-Element Beam Antenna - Antenna (Rating: 500W PEP)
- Mirage B-310-G VHF 2m Radio Amplifier - ~100W (PEP?)
- ArgentData FC-301/D VHF Data Transciever Output: 2W-5W, hardware configured for APRS
- Byonics TinyTrak4 (TNC mode)
- Raspberry Pi (No AFSK1200 decoding or audio demodulation necessary - packet injection to APRS-IS network only)
Send thoughts, praise, critique, questions, etc to zurielseven
List yourself, so people may come to know
Maybe we can start a mailing list but at least this is a good "gather the Hams list"
