VARA FM Gateway

Redid my gateway. Bought VARA upgrade. Installed an Alinco Dr135T mkiii and am using Repeater Builders RIM 9600 Alinco soundcard instead of using the Signalink. My user station now is another Alinco and the same soundcard. Throughout transmitting speeds are now in excess of 22,000 bpm. RF download speeds have been unvbeleivable, 109,000 up to 1.4 million bpm.
I think I like this set up. Much easier to setup than with a Signalink.

No internet - 99 miles Ham radio email. Winlink Vara FM

Video of sending emails using Ham Radio with a sound card and a laptop. No internet needed.
VARA-FM mode in Winlink. 441.00 UHF 35 watts with a mag mount antenna on a truck. Kahala Lookout right outside of Diamond Head Tunnel to Pukalani Maui.
