D*STAR Messaging via WC7SO

By Brian Lawler

WC7SO Gateway was down for a couple of days due to our Internet Service Provider making a configuration change on their side that broke connectivity for a while. While I was waiting on their changes at the site I fixed the simplex data link. Please try to connect to Station WC7SO using D-RATS on 145.750 Simplex (DV mode). The system will also accept connections via the internet at wc7so.ham-radio-op.net port 9000. Note that the d-rats client is currently running in GATEWAY configuration, where there is no direct link between Internet and RF connections. Messages may be passed between them (hence the “Gateway” moniker).
