Present W9mm mike
A long discussion was had on how and or if we can improve our ability to
communicate with K0MPX, national weather service in Chanhassen,.
A list of ideas……………..
Improve our verticle antenna system..
Add a beam pointed to St Paul
Link to the Roberts repeater..
Find permanent site for Walts New Richmond repeater
Set up remote base at WX transmitter at wheeler,, using secondary voice
Existing voice line. (voip type of
Adding audio with a vox operated
Remote base ) which could easily
The .47 machine.
Something I thought of on way home, If secondary audio can be done by WX
system over existing phone line, how about doing it through the Ladysmith
Then a simple remote base with simple antenna to reach .47 from there.
Don will contact KI9H jim and further discuss options of money sources
and also any know contacts with tower owners/availability.
Appearantly the Weather service has an agreement with the state of Wisconsin
wich owns some towers as the PBS station in Wheeler.
( I think it was Wheeler or maybe it was Colfax area.,, MY fault. No note)
