> I'm living in a very densely populated area with a lot
> of electrical noise from HV lines and a bad antenna
> location due to a lot of taller buildings around. For
> this reason I've decided to install a HF complete station
> on the sea beach, about 150' from the water line on the
> roof of a hotel which manager is an old friend. I'm
> living about 2 miles from this point and I don't have
> any problem to reach the remote QTH by VHF/UHF
> link or regular phone line .
> I intend to remote from my home a HF transceiver, a
> automatic-tune amplifier 500-1KW output, 2 beams
> mounted on same tower/rotator, a vertical and a wire
> My questions are:
> * what amplifiers can be remote controlled by a RS-232
> link ( I know only about the AlphaPower 87A model and
> maybe JRC-2000 ) ? Which software is doing the job ?
> Is the software able to indicate the forward & reflected
> output power on same window ?
> * what antenna switch matrix can be remote controlled in
> same manner ( I know only the AlphaPower ). Is Alpha
> supplying a common software for the 87A and antenna
> switch ? Can they be controlled at same time ?
> * what antenna rotator can be remote controlled ( I know
> only about Yaesu G-1000SDX and G-2800 ) ? Is Yaesu
> supplying the needed software ?
> * Is there any software package available today capable to
> integrate on same data stream all the transceiver features
> and commands, the TX/RX audio, the amplifier on/off switch
> and bandswitch, antenna selecting switch and rotator control ?
> or I have to use 2-3 separate links ? What are the proper
> modems for this ? The new Kachina Communications 505-DSP
> PC-controlled transceiver seems to solve a part of the problems
> and I beleive that their remote control feature combine the TX/RX
> audio from the SoundBlaster with the rig features commands
> stream. Any other aplicable solutions ?
