Ok so I bought one of these after reading the $100 BORK thread that's now locked. I'd like to listen in on my local traffic and decide whether I want to learn more and pursue this interest. Now I am familiar with radios and electronics a bit but I don't know anything about HAM. I have my software loaded, it will talk to the radio, the radio works and picks up stations from 88 to 108 but I have no idea how to recieve an actual HAM freq.
Here's what I'd like to recieve and any pointers would be much appreciated.The controller is an S-Com 7K. The repeater runs 10 watts output to a commercial antenna at 110 feet. The input frequency is 147.855 MHz, and the output frequency is 147.255 MHz. The repeater is an open repeater, and may be accessed by any properly-licensed amateur.
147.255 + open 88.5, autopatch, wx net
So what do I need to put into all these cute little boxes on this software? Thanks
