   Ok my elmer WB9DUC told me about how he thought about seting up a crossband repeater on the same grain elevater as his 2m dual site repeater. This elevator is 1 block away from me so i got the idea of wirelessly controling the radio from home... changing freqs , modes, etc...  ive got a new compaq presario desktop w/ network card that i could use w/ the addition of a wireless router at both ends. my idea is seting up a wireless network between the radio and my computer. would  i need to place another computer at the radio or could i hook the radio straight to a wireless router up there.... and if possible what radio would work the best for this application?

I have used my TS2000X as a crossband repeater but, with a hardwired ethernet connection to a second computer.  In the case this particular CAT command set, I have to take it out of crossband mode to make frequency changes, etc., then restore it back to crossband to xmit/rcv.

If you used an ethernet-to-serial converter at the remote radio, you could directly control the radio without another computer.  The host computer would run software that redirects a comport to the IP address of the converter which would function as a TCP/IP port.  Then, all you would have to do is run the appropriate CAT software for the remote radio.
