Radio Station

People have been discussing setting up a permanent Radio Station at i3 Detroit. Band and power have been discussed lightly at this moment I am not certain if any decisions have been made.

A permanent station / repeater may support features such as:

* APRS Automatic Packet Reporting System
* CW also called Morse Code
* VHF equipment to work local repeaters or direct communication with local hams
* HF transceiver and antenna for regional and DX (long distance) communication  
* PSK and other digital modes
* ATV amateur television (TV over UHF ham bands)

please take a moment and share your interesting ideas and comments.

I know there's some CSVs circulating out there. Upload 'em here!
