N2MH APRS Activities
After a hiatus of several years, I have dusted off the equipment for the
N2MH-15 digipeater and fired it up again. It is back on 144.390 in West
Orange using the same equipment and antenna as it did when it first went
on the air back in the late 1990's on 145.790 and eventually switched to
As it was operating originally, it runs PacComm firmware. However, it is
now running parameters supporting WB4APR's
The New n-N Paradigm. Specifically, it supports callsign substitution and
digipeating for four paths:
Other parameters for the digi have been set in accordance with
PacComm Settings for New n-N Compatibility
Real-time information about N2MH-15 can be found at
findu.com or on
Please send any comments about this digipeater to the email address below.
I'd like to know whether this digi is actually filling in a void or is simply
creating more channel traffic that is not needed.
UI-View32, Mixw, and vCOM
An interesting way to get UI-View32 (and other data comms programs) working on HF is
to use MixW as the hf modem and bridge the two with a software com port bridge
developed by N8VB. Details of this installation can be found
here. Using MixW as an hf modem is especially nice because
you can precisely set your frequency using the built-in, calibrated waterfall.
