Today I received a very nice email from Ofcom. It was my NoV for my echolink node.
Whilst I won’t be able to get it up and running this weekend because we have guests I hope to have everything up, running and ready for use early next week.
There is a restriction of 1.6w TX output using the 1/2w dipole (vertically polarised) but I’m keen to get the thing up and running. Eventually It’ll all be on the RPi but for now it might be quicker to install onto one of the old netbooks and to use that as a way of optimising audio and tx settings before going headless. There are a few restrictions on its use but they are perfectly sensible and being able to be unattended is a real bonus.
Exciting times. Here’s hoping it’ll get used by more than just me.
