FCC test data for an FTM-300 radio. Link to the FCC page. The test report for unintended emissions gives the most information, but the page with photos has been removed. Clearly a dual band mobile unit with a removable front panel.
Updated Windows 7 recommendations to include a survival guide for Microsoft’s discontinued support.
K9EQ is relocation update.
The YSF system continued to operate during the move. (The advantage of having a server hosted in a data center!) I am now located in Escondido California. No antennas up yet, but the network and data systems are running. There are plenty of Fusion repeaters out here, but NONE of them are connected to WiRES-X. That will have to change! My house is 1300′ ASL which is about 650′ HAAT. Escondido is located north of San Diego. Let me know if you are in the area!
A PDF/Print option has been added to HamOperator pages to make it easier to save a post or a page on your computer. Look for the PDF and printer icons in the upper-right corner of the page.
MNWis is now using #21,493 for both the YSF reflector “US MNWIS RDNT” and the WiRES-X room. The old YSF reflector at 37,624 is no longer in use. FCS 003-23 is still available for hotspot chatting, but is not linked to the YSF or WiRES-X reflectors. It may be linked during nets, but this is not guaranteed.
A note on problems using YSF Reflectors that bridge to WiRES-X Rooms.

MNWis now has a Chat Function. Try using this during the net!

Icom AH-4 Universal Tuner. The Official K9EQ Unofficial Icom AH-4 Tuner Page. It’s not just about working all bands. It’s also about building practical, cheap, antennas that you can design and put together with stuff from Home Depot. Find out why 50 ohms and aluminum are evil. Did I mention cheap?
Please refer to the BARS/W0MDT Mission Statement. This mission statement applies to all activities including the Fusion Net, and Hams in the Park. We humbly suggest that other organizations also establish their mission statement.
