Saturday In Person Meet Topic - Let's Get That TNC Working FINALLY


Image result for ham radio buildSo this Saturday the plan is to meet at Station 74 at 9:00 AM for two purposes.  One is to get that fancy new TNC you made six months ago hooked up to your radio and computer and the second is to give you hands on experience with Winlink.  Why the big rush you ask?  Well in the next 1 - 2 month we will have our West Valley City packet node installed at Fire station 76 as well as our shiny new repeater up and running,  Woot Woot!  Soooo, we need to make sure each and everyone of you are ready to go.


To help with getting your on the air I will have DB9 connectors for the TNC and 3.5 mm audio jacks, and RJ-45 ends, as well as some cable to connect it all up.  You will will need to bring a soldering iron, your radio, and a few bucks for the connectors to keep my wife happy.  Also bring your TNC and a laptop if you got it.  If you are all setup GREAT!, come and help others get their gear together.  Should be a fun morning and the results will benefit everyone.

If you didn't have a chance to build a TNC I will have them available as well.  $45 for the TNC and $8 for the case.

Any questions, let me know,
