W9ZIH ronald =k9vqr+ka1ze/3 tnx and stan i was on using the reverse beacon running 5 watts and hearing the sig fb hi

Ron, thanks for the report on my streaming audio. For those that have never tried it it is pretty simple. Whatever my RX in FN01xt on 144.205 hears, I broadcast on streaming audio with an apporoximate 30 second delay. The normal antenna position when I am not broadcasting on 205 is RIGHT ear the TOP antenna usually pointed WEST and the LEFT ear is connected to the 5 element stack pointed SOUTH. It sure is a great way to listen for how your transmitter sounds  in my receiver. 73 Stan

The streaming audio will not be on for the contest but will be back Monday morning.

Hi Stan,

Here are my reports. Really enjoy looking at the 205morning report. Always look at the first 9 pages. A lot of real interesting things on it and it’s nice to put a face to a callsign. We are all one big happy DXing family (hi hi).

73’s. You and Linda take care

A short morning due to work on the UHF tower. Hopefully all will be ready to go for the “test”.
I had to grab the assistance of my son when available and it appears that all systems are “go”.
I will try it out tonight on the 222 checkins. Looking forward to logging many “Q”’s

Fred, N1DPM FN32 prepared for the contest 50-3456

 Hey Stan,
Here’s a couple of N1DPM station pictures for the 205 page.
The one called amps and transverters is the new shelves built to hold this gear.
From the top down left to right…
Top shelf 12VDC 28VDC, and dual 48VDC power supplies.
2nd Shelf 1296 transverter and 125 watt PA on top and to the right is 2304 transverter with 225 Watt PA on top.
3rd Shelf 903 transverter and 300 watt PA and to its right is 3456 transverter and 50 watt PA.
To the right of the 3rd shelf is the microwave 903-3456 IF and Antenna switching unit.  The 3 switches and outlets below that are for 222MHz, 432 MHz and the microwave power.
4th Shelf 28 volt SPS and 400 watt 432 LDMOS amplifier (2 x MRF 377)
5th Shelf 222 station….DCI helical filter NEWS Transverter, 222kW LDMOS amplifier and 12 volt PS for the transverter.
6th Shelf 6 meter LDMOS kw amplifier and 2 meter LDMOS kW amplifier
All amplifier power supply voltages, currents and RF power are remotely measured at the operating desk in the shack.

Fred, this wins my seal of approval as the best ham shack I have ever seen. The only problem is it can’t possibly work because there are no wires… Stan
Oh…..There’s PLENTY of wires!  They’re all hidden.
