I'll be giving up my personal station from now until end of my license term. Its a personal decision , but I have a friend in Vermont who has the potential to gateway a 75 meter station. He has neither experience or technical savvy. I have no experience, but do have technical savvy.
Problem: There is a New England net I like to check into, and have during winter seasons. I am about 800 miles SE of Vermont, and can't really hear them well in most of seasons. Now, I know, it is possible to set up a computer as a server rather than what we all use, client mode.
I want a really simple set up that would allow me to just monitor 3.933 and with the VOX or some simple system activate the T/R so I could remotely transmit on the gateway.
What is the simplest most easily reset system for this. I say this, because my friend is basically an appliance Op. (Not that there is anything wrong with that)
