Re: Remote Control Fun

David, K9DWR
 

I do a combination of both. I use macros to open, send contact info, close tx, etc; and with fldigi, I can type extra stuff while the macro is still sending.   It is a little slower than normal, but not terribly so. I can usually stay ahead of the macro. 

This is also a limited engagement so I can get a contact for the day. I'm not carrying a ragchew.  It's also the worst case scenario to use only for emergencies. My normal remote is with a laptop, so performance is comparable to being at home.  I did the iPhone test last night mostly just to verify it was workable. It was by no means fun or recommended. Trying to navigate a 21" screen on a 3.5" phone is rough. :-)

How do you type fast enough with the tablet for a meaningful exchange of info?  Or do you just macro?  I find that entering data via a touchpad to be too slow for a reasonable QSO response time as compared to keyboarding.

I need to fill a couple of 24x7 slots during my work hours, so I started

Hey Milt,

 

In 1984, the year my favorite team went to the World Series... I had a conference to go to in Philly, and on the way there, everyone on the plane was talking about the place​. Went there one night, it was great, went back a second night and it did me in. It wasn't the food or the service, I just wasn't used to eating that much fresh seafood. I'd go back in a New York Minute.

Yes, both Fishermans Inn and The Narrows are still there and very competitive seafood restaurants.  Both remodeled several times after srorms like Sandy push flood tides and boats onto their property.

Thanks for letting me know, John.   Great memories of wonderful family dinners there.   My Dad loved Fisherman’s Inn and we’d stop in both coming and going on our trips to OC.
