Notice! We are updating the software regularly. Please upgrade as soon as possible.
Stan Schretter, W4MQ, wrote the W4MQ Internet Remote Base software and was a recipient of the ARRL Technical Innovation Award. This software, offered as a free service to the amateur radio community, allows users to control an Internet accessable160m through 70cm amateur radio station.
Important notice for Mac and Linux users: The W4MQ software has been tested on Windows XP, Vista, and Windows 7 and 8 32 and 64 bit. It will run under WINE in Linux. This has been tested but is not supported at this time with any help files. It may also run under WINE on Macs with Intel processors, but this has not been tested. Your reports on this may be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
In the menu section at the top of this page you will see several selections.
Handiham Stations: These pages refer to the setup for the two Handiham Remote Base stations W0EQO and W0ZSW. Both stations are available to Handiham members as a member service. We do not give transmit access to non-members, but everyone is welcome to try the stations on receive. This may be done by licensed amateurs using EchoLink.
W4MQ Client Software: This is where you want to begin if you are interested in what the whole remote base thing is about, or if you are interested in installing the software to use someone else's existing remote base station via your computer.
W4MQ Host Software: If you want to set up your own station as a remote base that can be accessed from the internet, you will need the Host software.
