First real contest operating using my REMOTE setup! I am always in Baja California at this time of year, in a remote village along the Sea of Cortez - totally Solar Powered, 20 miles off the grid. Thanks to a recently upgraded internet connection, I was able to operate the home station in Oregon from here. (We have plenty of bandwidth now - 4 Mbps delivered by a 5.7 Ghz Motorola Canopy system microwave link, with 1 relay required on a hill between me and the nearest town) Microwave DXing! The setup used a Kenwood TS-480SAT with the RemoteRig 1258 MKII system forming the link. On the Oregon side, it was connected to the other remote rig, the rest of the TS-480 and routed through an SPE 1K-FA solid state linear amplifier, finally into the 4 Element SteppIR @ 90'. I didn't have a real 'contest setup' here, just the hand microphone, so it was Left Hand for the Microphone, Right Hand for typing the exchange into N1MM. I was very pleased that the 125ms latency of the internet connection (about 1/8th of a second) was not an issue at all. N1MM reports these MAX rates (mostly hampered by the Hand Mic / 1 Hand Bandit typing!) were: Best Minute: 300 Q's per hour Best 10 Minutes: 192 Q's per hour Best Hour: 146 per hour. It was a blast, this stuff works! Best 73 from XE land - and now GREAT to have 10 meters rockin' and rollin' Kevin K7ZS
