IF YOU ARE HERE, IT IS PROBABLY BECAUSE YOU HAVE CONNECTED WITH MY REMOTE STATION VIA
REMOTEHAMS.COM AND YOU ARE LOOKING FOR MORE INFORMATION ABOUT OPERATING MY STATION.
If you are working ANY station, when giving your call sign
you MUST give credit to this station.
It is my opinion that it is not fair to the DX station, to think you are operating direct from your own station;
NOR is it fair to us for providing you with this remote station.
If I hear you working DX stations without giving credit for this remote I will remove your transmit privileges.
Your first Time on my remote? PLEASE NOTE the following: This remote is used by several stations
for the 4PM’ers net, 3922Khz from about 15:30 to 17:00 Eastern time.
You are welcome to join us but please don’t change the setup on the station.
Things that you should always do when connecting to our remote
1. Click the ASK button and wait at least 15 seconds if anyone else is on the remote
2. Choose the band you wish to use, then tune to the frequency you wish to use.
NOTE: antenna selection is automatic, but you MUST TX for a few seconds using the “M-TUNE”
button to get the automatic tuner and antenna selection to match the frequency you are using.
3. When you transmit voice, watch the audio stream at the top of the client. Set your mic level to only
occasionally show color there. If you see orange or red colors, you are over-driving the audio.
If you do not see any color ever, your mic may be set too low. Use the MIC slider at the top of your client
to adjust the level.
HINT: once you have moved it with the mouse, you can fine-adjust it with the mouse roller while resting on the slider.
4. If you are the only one on the remote when you are finished using it please turn off the radio before
disconnecting, and if you were using the AMP please turn it off also.
This site is a work in progress, please check back often.
Any questions please contact me, n1mgo at arrl dot net.
Thanks, Gordon – N1MGO
