'''Build'''
* Build cabinet for #RCHWD site, must house computer, radios, power supplies, TNCs. Computer should have 2 serial ports and wireless network card. Computer obtained, build in progress.  Total count is 5 radios (1 6m, 2 2m, 1 1.25m and 1 70cm) and 6 TNCs (BPQ32 will be on all but APRS TNC, which will be linked to VM of Linux running Xastir for a digipeater/Igate).  The 6th TNC will be wired to "share" the 145.010 radio to give both BPQ32 service as well as a Linux based RMS gateway. '''***Update 5/11/09***''' Computer built on Dell, had problems with Linksys N card, transplated into IBM desktop, still getting inconsistant behavior with wireless card.  Going to return PCI card and locate Wireless Bridge.
 
* Build Tennis ball Launchers to aid in installation of antennas in trees
 
* Construct small 222 MHz antenna to be installed very high at CMHSW3 site in hopes of having a clear shot to CMHSW4. '''***Update 5/10/09***''' 4 Element quad built and installed.  1.4:1 SWR on target frequency.  Seems to be holding  a fairly strong link.  Varies between S1 and S5 depending on time of day.
 
* Implement 10m FM 1200 Baud RF ports on CMHSW2, CMHSW3.  Twinlead dipole constructed for CMHSW2, need coax.  Tentative frequency of 29.685 MHz. '''***Update 5/10/09***''' Radio and TNC are onsite @ CMHSW2.  No antenna yet so radio is powered down.
 
* Establish 70cm 1200 Baud link between CMHSW2 and CMHSW3 in 441 MHz range.  CMHSW2 will use 70cm side (Duplexer is on site) of AR-270B.  Unknown antenna for CMHSW3. '''***Update 6/02/09***''' Midland Syntech I onsite @ CMHSW2.  Channel 42, 440.050.  There are audio problems.  Reversed TXA and GND on mic connector which did not fix.  Suspect extremely low TX drive level from TNC.  Will need to revert mic cable wiring and crank up R76 in TNC to get adequate audio drive.  Also ensure preamp has been transplanted into radio successfully (take neutered mic + HT)
 
* Install APRS Digipeater at N8FRT's QTH.  Use directional antenna to favor 71S away from Columbus.'''****Update 6/21/09****''' Install is up and going. Using AR2 Omni at the moment. Seems to be doing ok. Will get better when tower goes up.
 
* Rebuild N8FRT's hamshack computer with Ubuntu and configure Soundmodem as needed. 
 
* Build collinear PVC 2m J-Pole for KD8HEZ Home/Voice station
 
* Where the hell is The Rick? '''***Update 6/02/09***''' He's been busy failing.  Please try your call again later.'''****Update 6/21/09****''' He is still failing and now has been named the CFO (Chief Failing Officer)of the group.

* Work on Radio/TNC/Computer setup for CMHSW1 site (Lincoln tower)
 
* Wire up BPQ Polling cable for CMHSW2 (6) and #RCHWD (5).  Connectors have arrived. '''***Update 5/9/09***''' Successfully build 6, 4 and 2 port polling cables.  6 port in use at CMHSW2 as of 5/10.
 
* Burn appropriate BPQKISS eproms with Channels A-F for CMHSW2, A-D for #RCHWD. '''***Update 5/9/09***''' Completed
 
* Investigate 30m APRS HF I-Gate, unsure of location, probably CMHSW2 or maybe CMHSW4 if compact antenna is devised.
 
* Testing Midland 70-9020 (806-870 MHz) Radios for possible 33cm work, used for local linking to keep 70cm clear.''''**** Did these work???? ****'''

* Inventory existing radio and TNC stock.  Once inventoried, modify to ham bands.  Mark each radio with center frequency and maximum power output. '''7/08/10''' Radios and TNCs inventory completed, begin modifications/tuning next.
* Replace 6m, 2m, 70cm radios at CMHSW2 and #RCHWD. CMHSW3 upgraded, need to add 6m Syntech I once V2000 is installed and Duplexer issues are resolved.
+
 
* Upgrade 222 MHz link from CMHSW3 to CMHSW4 to 9600 Baud.  KPC-9612s freeProbably QSY frequency down to 223.400.
