Finished getting my uBitx kit together. I have to say, getting the universal case added a significant % to the cost of the total kit, but it was totally worth it. Not having to fiddle with enclosures is something I'm happy to pay for at this point.
And hey, it works! Hoping to get into the field this weekend and make a few contacts.
OK. Let's get serious.
uBitx in a Harbor Freight waterproof case with a Raspberry Pi and 7" touchscreen also built into he same box.
FT4/FT8 in a lunchbox is what I'm thinking.
Getting that project list fired up for when the kids get back to school.
OK. I give!
WinLink has beaten me. I thought I understood it. But I just don't know what my expectations should be. Am I sending a message to a repeater that will push it to the internet? Or is it only for local traffic?
These are the kinds of things that I can't seem to find docs to cover. And the actual WinLink site doesn't really get into the details I'd like to see. There are assumptions everywhere.
I've written a lot of documentation, so this kinda gets my goat, ya know?
