The first Saturday of April, April 7, 2018, we will be building antennas at Alanís shop up Paris Canyon. It will begin at 10:00 a.m..
Bob talked about his experience with Win Link in the past. He stressed that we will need a TNC to use Win Link and showed two TNCs. One was a Tiny Track 4 by Byonics. The Tiny track4 has to be programmed on a computer.
Keven did a demonstration on Win Link. He showed a short video and then retrieved an e mail sent to him by Bob using the radios. He tried to retrieve an e mail from his daughter in Logan but the antenna being used was not strong enough to connect to the diga repeater. Keven showed us a Signal Link TNC with the cable for &130.00 on Amazon. Alan mentioned that Buxxcon have TNCs for a reasonable price.
Rick gave us very useful function instructions for the Wouxun KG UV6D and the Wouxun KG UV8D. We practiced using the functions on those two radios.
