KF6YPQ'S Ham Radio Web Page, Welcome!
Up Since October, 1999
KF6YPQ's Information Announcement Machine Broadcasts on a Frequency of 146.585 no P.l. or Tone Required
Provides Up To Date Information on Solar Reports, Local Weather, Amature Radio Repeaters in the Southwest Missouri Vicinity, and more to come in the future!
The Information Machine is Located 7 Miles NorthEast of Carthage, Missouri. About 55 Feet Up, Using a Hustler 2m/440MHz Antenna and a Yaesu FT-8000R for the Transmitting and Receiving. A Toshiba Laptop With a Registered Version Of Echostation is what I use to Play all the Audio. The Machine is DTMF Activated. For the Transmitting Interface I am using a Rigblaster Nomic with a specially made Cable that goes to the Data Port on the Yaesu.
DTMF Activation Codes: Note: Listening Area is Roughly about 40 Square miles on Medium Power, (35w)
