 SERC Radio Room Upgrade Project

**********************************************************
The SERC radio room is slowly being organized and improved.
It started with the tower project that gave us a fabulous 4 band Yagi at 50 feet
The project is moving forward with some very nice donations.
How about helping out…..
Here’s is what we need… :
  • Laptop computer:  Wired and/or wireless network, serial port or serial to USB adapter.
  • Vista, Win7 or Win8 OS… sorry but XP is getting too outdated.
  • Wireless router: wireless G, (G/N would be nice) with at least 4 wired ports.
  • a TNC (see Winlink below).
  • 2 – flat screen monitors… 600 x 800 resolution or more.
  • 2 – usb keyboards.
  • 2 – amplified audio distribution systems for the rig outputs…..
    • Minimum 2 headphone jacks.
    • Speaker.
    • Volume controls.
  • Windom Improvement:
    • The Windom antenna does not function very well… proven during the FL QSO Party.
    • Help is needed to recondition it and put it back up at a higher point on the tower.
  • Additional antenna(s) for HF.
  • A dream: a triplexer and 3 band pass filters for the YAGI so we can run 2 stations into the single antenna!
  • Wire A/C for the amplifier… need 20 amp 110 or 220 vac (preferred) dedicated line.
  • ??? we are looking for suggestions, what would you like to see in the room.

WIP:
2 computer to radio interfaces are being constructed and should be completed by field day.
This will allow voice keying from the computers as well as digital modes; PSK, RTTY etc.

If you would like to contribute, time, money, equipment please contact any SERC board me
