Being a little fanatic about SO2R it is interesting to see what logger program will work well with Flex-6700. The fact that Wayne W5XD came out with a new Contest Simulator recently with lots of nice features it draught my attention. So how do you set up 6700 for Writelog (WL)?
I am using an external Wineyer at OCM12 and 9600 baudot. Here is a screen shot of the configuration.
OBS! Two use two slices on different you must actually set up four slices. A pair for each band. New drivers can be found on WL page.
Building a tower base on regular soil is a relatively easy task. But what if the “soil” is hard uneven rock?
Here is a photo of my situation. The starting point is an uneven rock measuring 1,6 x 1,6 meters. The blue stand offs are the old tower base.
The challenge is how to drill vertically over 16 holes 30 cm into the rock? Professionals do it by big diamond cutters/drill machines that are vertically positioned. Hilti, Huskvarna etc makes these. However, this requires a flat surface to mount these on. So it wont work in my situation…:(
So use a regular SDS Max drill and attach a horizontal libel (see photo below).
This is how it is done. Of course you would need a steel template for the hole pattern to allow you to drill vertically.
I have been doing remote DX-inf for about five years and remote contesting for about a year. This blog will focus on enhancements to the remoting that have evolved over the last years due to internet technology.
with the new technology achievements you can easily integrate stations and accessories together in a way that was difficult say five years ago. This also means you can easily change your layout and expand it without spending an awful lot of time on “debugging”.
