Steve Semon, KEØCYW was presented with a plaque and a lifetime membership to the Sedalia Pettis Amateur Radio Klub during the club meeting on August 29, 2020 .
The inscription on the plaque reads “In recognition of the many years of service, generous contributions and dedication to amateur radio in the Sedalia- Pettis County area”
Thank you Steve and congratulations!
Also, at the same meeting, Steve De Moss, WAØWUY was awarded a lifetime membership for his many decades of participation and contributions to the club including the equipment for the repeater streaming project.
Phase two of the repeater streaming project is currently in operation. Phase two is the addition of the WBØLRX 224.44 repeater to our stream. Thanks to Jeff for letting us do that. It and the 2 meter repeater share stream number one, using the radio that Steve, WAØWUY donated, the tri-band Baofeng, that will simultaneously monitor 2m and 220.
Phase three will be forthcoming, placing the 6 meter repeater on a second stream using a radio donated by John, NØEE. This will take me some additional time since it involves fairly complex configuration of the Raspberry Pi to stream two audio sources at the same time, as well as adding to the tangled mess of wires and antennas.
Listen to the live streams on Broadcastify.com or use the Broadcastify app on your phone.
I will post photos of the completed setup after phase 3 is complete.
The SPARK 2 meter repeater is now up for a live streaming test. It will only be up for a short time. The streamer at this point is nothing but a tangled mess of wires on the workbench, but it appears to work.
In the next few days, it will be cleaned up into its final configuration.
Things to remember:
1. This is only a preliminary test. The feed may be up and down sporadically for several days.
2. The feed is delayed from live by 15 seconds to as much as 2 minutes.
