The remote club station is running and ready for testing.

Currently, KD8TUT, KW0RM, AD8BU, and N8SS are testing transmit. The radio is available to all Club members as a receiver while we are testing.

You'll need to download the client and create an account from here:

    https://www.remotehams.com/

    Once you have the client installed, start the RCForb client and login to the client (this is the account you setup on the remote hams site).

    Once the client loads: There will be a list of stations. Look for the W8MAI Club Station- double click the station listing.

    The current station is an Apache Labs ANAN 100D.

    Further Documentation will be available in the future, however, here are the software manuals:

  • The K7RA Solar Update

    Last week's Propagation Forecast Bulletin ARLP002 opened with "Wow!"
    I don't know what to say about this week, except it is beyond wow.

    this Solar Cycle 25, could this get us to the 1957-59 levels last
    seen in Solar...
