Client Side

What does the client side look like?  Here’s a snapshot.

From left to right, the Icom IC-7300 is the local station (nothing to do with the remote base).  It is connected to an antenna consisting of a piece of hookup wire outside the window — a vertical with an automatic tuner at the base and a piece of welded wire fencing for a ground plane.

On top of the IC-7300 is an Intel NUC computer that is used for two functions.   First, it runs applications for the local IC-7300, specifically WSJT-X and JTAlert.   Second,  it provides remote access to the 6 meter station in Strasburg via remote desktop connection.

In the center is the monitor for a remote desktop connection to the main station in Strasburg.  To the right is the second monitor for the same computer.  The computer is another Intel NUC  hidden under the desk in this picture.

Also visible is a Yaesu FT-7800 for vhf and uhf local repeater conversations.

On the wall above is the collection of wall paper decorations.  On the left is the station license, then the DXCC certificate, Honor Roll plaque, ARRL life member plaque, and finally the 5 band DXCC certificate.  A great circle map is partially visible.
