Complete remote control. My summertime shack is behind my detached garage. During the wintry WX here, it is seldom used- and really cold. I tried to get a simple setup in the house for listening, at least. Here is how the simple setup has evolved; 3 Windows Computers, 2 XP Laptops each w/ embedded wireless LAN, 1 win2k server. 2 Linksys Wireless Routers. 1 Laptop, the command Center with VNC, on a 12" display, to Laptop #2; Laptop 2 N1MM Logger/MMTTY engine for keying radio, has one on-board serial port directly to Icom 756 Pro II- CI-V. LP-100 Virtual Control Panel for Wattmeter. 2 Ports connected through Ethernet to serial server connected directly to on-board ethernet port. 1 port for PTT and true FSK, 1 port Has Winkey (Unused on RTTY) 2 more ports connected to Computer #3 located in winter shack (Spider Node, APRS server/WX Station). 1 port for LP-100 Vector Wattmeter and 1 port (PTT) for keying the amplifier. The winter shack and house network are connected through a Linksys (DD-WRT) wireless network. Radio Icom 756 Pro-II RigBlaster Plus 75' coax AL-80b Amplifier LP-100 Wattmeter with SWR protection for AMP 75' Coax to R-5 Vertical I called CQ most of the time although no true run rates developed. I selected the Vertical to reduce potential RFI problems, and I thought up the amplifier keying at about 2000z Sunday, with no one answering CQ's I made most contacts with 50w. then with about 350 watts. I did not notice any keying delays or hot switching, but I would like to incorporate switching the amp in a bit earlier and out a bit later for safety's sake. My goal was 200 QSOs, but the service pager went off that occupied the last hour. Now I have to go outside in the cold to shut the AMP off. More serial ports for switching power/antennas/bands?!? 73's Thanks for the QSO's, this was fun, and warm! Jason W1UJ
