The Oakville ARC Field Day 2013 is gathering steam.
So far, we’ve got four of us who are showing up 🙂
Also I took an ancient Toshiba laptop to the computer guy on Kerr St. north of Speers in the same little shopping centre that houses Organic Garage and for $30 I had the computer restored to a stripped down, roaring to go state.
If you’re on the air at all, a logging program like Writelog or N1MM can be used as a general as well as contest logger.
I’d love to say the FlexRadio 1500 works with the Toshiba but only on receive as it’s using 50% of the CPU and that’s not fast enough to transmit without any delays.
Having said that the computer guy says he’s got some pretty fast used refurbished laptops for $200. I like buying from this guy because if anything goes wrong I can bring it back to them and they’re pretty good at bringing old machines back to life.
Now if I just had a rig with a 100-watt output I’d have the whole package.
