Working Wednesdays are busy nights at the Radio Science and Operations Center (RSOC). To give a sense of what we’re up to, here’s a partial list of the happenings from last night’s work…..I might not hit everything! This is just a list….not in any priority or time order:
- Replaced the defective HF Robust Packet transceiver.
- Troubleshot the defective HF Robust Packet transceiver for possible repair.
- Engineered a plan for 12VDC battery power distribution in the operations area
- Built up a new multiband HF 5-band dipole antenna
- Got a new printer/scanner/fax machine working
- Engineered a plan for installation of our satellite station then located all the pieces and parts (that satellite station has been waiting for reinstall since we moved into the RSOC).
- Tooled up for MT63 operations a two HF operating positions.
- Tested an oscilloscope
- Moved several power supplies into basement storage
- Checked into the Sniper’s Net
- Located the needed equipment for installation of an SGC 500 watt HF amplifier
- Fixed issues with our network relating to easy MESH access
That’s probably not all that happened, but we were certainly busy.
Come on out on Working Wednesdays from about 6 PM to 9 PM or Saturdays from about 10 AM to 2 PM to see what’s going on at the place, give a hand, or to work on your favorite project.
