Joe, KD5YCY & the 443.100 Repeater

 

Texas APRS Server

in Ovalo,TX

Davis Weather Station.

 

Joe is an avid ham, whose skills are many. Like many others who have eventually found their way into this hobby, Joe was hanging antennas, running hardline, and making full duplex radio links between towers long before the ham license.

If you say "I need to..." and Joe can't figure out how and make it so, you may find yourself reconsiderig the project, because it has one or two many zeros in the cost column.

With a backgound that includes being a professional mechanic, an acomplished welder, time well spent in a machine shop, to his current vocation creating wireless internet backbones and making high speed internet connections, Joe rarely says it can't be done.

Besides the Windows Xp pro system, I also have and mantane servel Red Hat Linux boxs that act as the mail server for this web site and others. Located on a 5.8ghz broadband wireless backbone, the server may be located in the West Texas countryside near Ovalo, but you would never know it from the low latency on that backbone.

 

 

A ICom IC-756 ProIII HF rig complements the FT-1000D that sits to the left of his dual monitor XP system. A HeathKit SB-220 that hasbeen completley converted to 6 meters with the help of RL Howard WC5E it is a performer along with a QRO 2500DX and a very nice old Alpha 78. Ameritron ATR-30 tuner makes the connection when needed and 7/8" Anderws up the 110' Rohn 25g tower.

!!! Life is to short for QRP !!!

The 443.100 repeater began life as a project that would provide just another good repeater in the local area. It has become one of the very best repeaters in West Texas, due to Joe's hard work.

The BCARN Founder Joe was the founder and creator of BCARN, or the Big Country Amateur Radio Net. While BCARN may not become the pinnacle of Ham radio in the Big Country, it has sparked a renewed enthusiasm for our hobby and caused many to rise to the occasion. If nothing else, Joe can be very proud of re-kindling the fire that will keep Ham Radio alive and well for some time to come, at least here in the Big Country.

The 444.000 repeater (PL 167.9) is located on a commercial building near Buffalo Gap road and Highway 84, adjacent to the Mall of Abilene.
