Fly-In Breakfast Recap

Sept. 11, Fly-In Breakfast Recap
PAOP, EAA, Chapter 1250fly in breakfast

We had a good time this year at the PAOP Fly-In Breakfast.  Glen WA3LAB brought his remote radio using a Kenwood TS 480 interfaced with his cell phone. On the table he unpacked his TS 480 control head and wireless interface to his phone. His home set up has a similar interface box to his TS 480 transceiver. He demonstrated this  ability to a few hams who were also pilots about how this actually works – really cool stuff! We could talk from Glen’s home station to our club station. No need for a radio check ever! Our club station is an Icom 718, manual antenna tuner, power supply powered by commercial power (we had a generator but it wasn’t needed this year). The antenna was new for this year, a G5RV mini, 51’ overall length. It was up at about 25 feet. It covers 40 thru 6 meters with a tuner. We made contacts as far away Nebraska, and mobiles and base stations in Texas and as far south as Florida. Continue Reading →
