Ali 9K2WA and I gave a presentation at the Palomar Amateur Radio club in San Diego..
First Thanks to Michael VA2MW, Ria N2RJ, Mack W4AX and Ali 9K2WA for letting me use your stations.... Nothing goes over so well as a live demo that actually works
There were likely 100+ people in attendance.
Ali 9K2WA attended and we were able to do a remote 9K2WA to W4AX and to N2RJ QSO on 40M .. which impressed the heck out of the audience
There was a noticeable latency of about 1 second between Ali
Speaking via Kuwait and hearing it in NJ or GA but heck we both were in California using a Kuwait Station to contact Georgia and New Jersey on 40M...
Here is a link to the PDF of the presentation
Here is a link to the Powerpoint of the presentation
FYI - for you nostalgia buffs, here is a video of the first transcontinental remote
using a Flex 5000 and iPads between Joe KC2TN and myself from Hara Arena back
Thanks again for the help from Mike, Ria, Mack and Ali in making my presentation a success...
I'll probably be at Xenia next year. Still undecided. I may do the FRS event and contest dinner and take the family somewhere else like the AF museum.
I will be at Friedrichshafen though. Hopefully get to meet up with Emil and Marcus too. I did meet Marcus at Dayton but we didn't have a lot of time to talk.
It had a WAN/LAN interface built into it as a standard feature and could be plugged into an Internet modem directly without any other device. It could then be Remoted from any where in the world over the internet using a Windows machine and their software or the more user friendly N4PY software package which I used.
Another unique feature of this radio was that it could be remoted without the need of a computer at the radio end of the system, one of the first radios to do this.
I bought one of the first Omni07's in 2007 and set it up in Niagara operating it from my home in Australia. It worked so well no one was aware I was located half way around the world.
I was told they had a real time spectrum display module in their lab for the radio but it never made it to market.
For their day the Omni07's were pretty advanced in remote equipment.
Perhaps you could add this to your historical review of remoting.
