Looking for recommendations for someone to help with SSB/pactor/winlink set up in the Melbourne, Florida
area. Know anyone?
Is there someone here that is willing to do a little "handholding" with me to get this all working before we depart in a few months?
We have installed an Icom
710rt with a pactor
IIe (upgraded to III) and have a Winlink account. I have installed both RMS Express and Airmail. Here is what I am troubleshooting right now:
1) I have been able to send and receive email/grib file requests and data in the past, but not having success now. I think I might be getting different lights on the modem
but not sure (and don't know what lights I should be seeing) RMS/Airmail are seeing modem
2) I also cannot get the computer to remotely change channels on radio
( I have the 8088 cable and my com ports
have been verified) I still have to do this manually.
3) I am still confused on how to properly use and set the RF gain and tune.
I have read the Gordon West, Capt. Mardi Brown, and Dockside Radio books
, and got my general HAm license
but still need a little one-on-one help.
