AREDN Update 9/16/21


Nat 2733E N6BRV
 

Thank you Keith for the AI6BX-10-RMS-XW-WEST node installation on San Marcos Peak.

 

Update:

·         Placed the dish on 2” PVC pipe for stability, still on the window sill.  

·         SNR improved from ~ 16 dB (?) to ~20 dB and Data Rate from 14-19 Mbps to 25-29 Mbps. Will continue to optimize Azimuth and X-Y axis.

·         Test send from WinLink bounced back because WinLink email Address is not listed in main@ARC2-SDICC.groups.io (might be beneficial to add callsign@... to Groups.io account in case we need to send email from WinLink back out.
