Email me Amateur Radio Relay League (ARRL) the largest membership association of amateur radio enthusiasts in the USA Beacons 10 Meter Beacon List ID-O-Matic by HamGagets Great for making your own beacons or repeater ID. C4FM Fusion - Yaesu FTM-400DR Quick Guide Manual Wires-X via DG-ID Wires-X Node Manual CW/Morse Code Super Morse DOS Freeware Program to learn Morse Code. Shareware. Untested. Use Notepad or Wordpad to read the .HLP files. DMR (Digital Mobile Radio) DMARC BrandMeister Network: Dashboard Meteor Scatter Meteor scatter communications has been used by ham radio VHF enthusiasts for many years. Using meteor scatter propagation enables radio communications contacts to be made over distances up to about 2000 km on the VHF bands. MSK144 seems to be choice mode. Motorola Batlabs - Comprehensive web site of programming, modification and schematic data on most models. No software! MTR200 Repeater Specifications Field Service Bulletin Product Planner National Traffic System (NTS) Information on the NTS Packet Basics: NTS NTS Manual Radiogram Form 2011 Packet (All packet radio files have been moved here.) Paging While commercial paging has virtually disappeared, the amateur radio community has embraced this technology. Technical Data/Theory of Operation Digital Amateur POCSAG Paging Ham Radio Paging: Putting "POC5AG" on Packet W0XI POCSAG Paging Protocol - Raveon Hardware Alphapoc German manufacturer of pagers that cover the amateur frequencies. Kantronics has the 9612+ (out of production) and the newer 9612XE can encode/decode POCSAG. Wireless Devices Inc (Taiwan) These guys have tons of fun POSCAG toys! Their hardware including their pagers cover 2 meter and 440 amateur radio frequencies! NP-14 Series fully-programmable, single-board, POCSAG encoder with Hi power synthesized transmitter for the on-site paging system applications. POCSAG Encoder/Transmitter Module for IoT Application. Great item that will intercept your page and send it to your phone! Salcom 12-62-0000 POCSAG Paging Transmitter STI Engineering in Australia. WOW! Full VHF Band POCSAG Paging Trasmitters with and without Built-in Encoder that covers the 2 meter amateur radio band. The shame of it is they are grossly overpriced!! Software PE PE v3.10a by Clive Cooper, G8UKN and Pete Baston, GW0PJA is a DOS paging encoder for the PC. This is the software. I have the article on the interface by Robert B. Whitaker, but alas, I don’t have the schematics anymore. Check back often. This is on my list. In the mean time check out PDW below. PE-300 PDW Since 2003, Peter Hunt has made PDW the main (free!) Program to receive POCSAG and FLEX. PDW has users worldwide, from radio hobbyists to professional users. Peter has stopped developing the program after 10 years: he thinks it is 'finished'. Peter, thank you for all your efforts! PDW is now Open Source. The official site is HERE. These files are achieved locally and act as a mirror if/when the site goes down. PDW and RS-232 Port.doc PDW FSK to RS232 Schematics PDW2.14-full PDW2.2-full PDW3.10-full PDW3.12-full PDW3.2b01 RFShark Openspot Manual One of the reasons I enjoy the original version is that you can attach an external antenna, effectively increasing you hot spot coverage. Openspot 1 Manual Openspot 2 Manual Openspot 3 Manual RTTY Great articles I found on RTTY: Getting Started on RTTY Radio Teletype or RTTY by the Wireless Institute of Australia RTTY over Internet: test your sound card by receiving RTTY over the internet! Satellites AMSAT - The Radio Amateur Satellite Corporation Heavens Above - This web site has some great satellite and astronomy info and more. Satview - Find out when/where the next space junk will reenter the earth’s atmosphere. Telemetry - Decoding with a Sound Card Tracking AGSatTrack Simple satellite tracking program. A great way to break into satellites before you upgrade to the fancy paid software on the AMSAT web site. It’s nice. Compatible with Windows 10. Make sure your update the Keplarian elements. SCRAP - Satellite Contact Report Analysis & Prediction. This is a tracking, report, analysis, prediction and 3-D real time display program.
