Adding some very cool station automation gear to the shack – all from 4o3a in Montenegro.
The 4o3a Station Genius is basically an ethernet addressable highly configurable shack multi-switch. Ranks 4o3a jokes that it WILL even do your coffee, and technically that is an affirmative!
For the moment the Station Genius is home shack only.
The each QTH has gotten a 4o3a Antenna Genius 8×2 ethernet addressable Antenna Switch. These switches are especially sweet when using a dual-SCU Flex-6700 in SO2R configuration.
4o3a has his Rotor Genius out, which will be next implementation. A not so secret bit of news is 4o3a is tightly collaborating with FlexRadio Systems and a RF Amp is somewhere in the works.
You can read a lot about Ranko 4o3a at his website http://www.4o3a.com
Force12 has been awesome in sourcing this great gear for the USA based ham. See http://www.force12inc.com/categories/4o3a-devices.html?sort=pricedesc for their listing of 4o3a devices.
Did I mention the end goal is all this gear works with SmartSDR and hopefully with a Maestro soon afterwards?
Much more to follow!
