The other day I picked up miscellaneous plugs from Radio shack the other day. I plan on building a cable to go from my computer to my Icom 2100H radio. Also I am going to try setup a packet station. I will not be on all the time like some other stations would be, but I want to play with it. If you are in Pittsburgh and know of any good packet station I can connect to, please leave a message that includes the station callsign and Freq. I should be up and running by the end of the weekend. Also I should note that the stations should be on 2 meters.
