SignaLink order status

Martin Offenhauer
 

Hi All,
Just received this from Charles concerning a bulk order for Signalinks.  If anyone is interested in purchasing one to do WinLink, please contact Charles. The more we order the lower the price.

"To date, we have enough orders for the 10 unit price of $105. The next price break would be for 25 units and that would get us to $98. 
The price includes one cable for the radio of your choice.  If you need an extra cable they would be $18 each.  "

Using the Anytone Mobile AT-D578UV PRO with Winlink

Steve
 

One downside of the 578 is that it's microphone has a built-in CPU to handle all of the functions on the microphone, i.e. this is a proprietary microphone design.  There is NO PTT line to use.  But this guy was a someone laborious workaround.  If you know of another way please jump in!

Hi Steve  I found the problem, my "Thunderbird E-mail" client, blocked the photo's. WOW what a cllection of commercial radio gear! I guess they have HF radio onboard as I saw some "Harris" HF radios on the bottom of the rack.  73 Bruce WA6DNT

IIRC equipment rack from top to bottom:

Windows 10 and Linux servers

Flex radio

Icom 7100 with what looks like a SCS modems

Icom 7200 x2; ditto SCS modems

Yaesu 8800 x3

D-Star transceiver (model?)

Scanner

Radio over IP equipment

?

Big old power supply at the bottom.

Appreciate and fills/corrections anyone might have. I going to have a station just like this someday - as soon as I can talk Pat into letting me paint the house white. Already have the Red Crosses.

Bottom picture was the results  of their ham radio team contacting all seven continents via WSPR over a 24 hour period.

BTW here is USNS Mercy leaving San Diego  in 2008. "Doghouse" that  was mentioned is probably the structure topside just aft of the middle of the ship (between the second and third cross), next to the radome that I suspect houses the satellite communications antennas. On the original picture from the Wikipedia article you can make out some of the antennas forward of the doghouse.

Neat presentation! 878 donation was a nice touch.

They have a lot of gear as you can see, but no DMR.  (The Comfort does not have a ham shack.)
On their humanitarian missions around the world sometimes ham radio is the best if not the only communication method.
Each PAPA meeting has 1 or more door prizes depending on how many tickets are sold.  One of today's prizes was an Anytone 878.  The winner donated it to the ship's crew.  The club is going to donate a 578 as well.
