(By KØRM)

At the BARCFest held on October 7th, the RMHam NetLab was on display and drew many curious attendees.   I captured an impromptu briefing when I aimed my camera at our own network guru Willem Schreuder and said “what’s going on here?”   Thanks to him for a great two-minute explanation and demonstration.

RMHR hosts successful 2018 TAPR Digital Communications Conference in Albuquerque

08/20/2018

Rocky Mountain Ham Radio, New Mexico hosted the 2018 TAPR Digital Communications Conference (DCC) in Albuquerque, New Mexico at the Sheraton Albuquerque Airport Hotel on September 14-16. DCC is an annual conference, attended by hams across the United States and world, that highlights digital communications technologies, techniques, and capabilities currently being utilized within amateur radio or under development.  RMHR-NM attracted DCC to New Mexico for the first time in the conference’s 37 year history, in part because of its experience conducting the annual New Mexico TechFest.

The weekend was filled with introductory and technical presentations, demonstrations, meals with speakers, prizes, and opportunities to establish or build relationships with some of amateur radio’s notable technical innovators.  Special thanks to Rick AE5JI, Ron NR5ON, Erik KE5ZBG, Pat W5RMY, and Brian N5ZGT for the logistical and on-site support!

Thorodin Wind Damage

02/08/2018

As of about 2PM on Feb 7, 2018, the Thorodin DMR went off-air as well as 449.225 analog and the Colorado Connection Denver transmitter.  The main antenna for UHF transmitter combiner broke it’s mounts at the roofline and ripped out it’s feedlines.  The system is temporarily repaired and back online as of Feb 9, 2018.  It’s amazing the damage that wind can do!  It was blowing about 25mph continuous and gusts to 60 while W0VG and Ben Hammond from Mountain Broadband were there affecting repairs.
