We did live 'out in the sticks' as you put it.
Chances are it would work today, as even though
Mullinahone is a small, but well known place.
Actually Seamus, EI8EPB, his parents still live
there.. so if you wanted to try it.. you could try
sending an envelope to Seamus Ryan, Mullinahone to see
if he got it :)
As Charles J Kickham allegedly once said:
"Any man who hasn't been to Mullinahone, can't say he
has travelled at all"
Mullinahone is actually a English construct, the real
name of the place is Muileann na hUamhan, which
translated is "Mill by the River"
Anyways... I'm blaming Scott for bringing me
completely off topic.

- Looking at pictures of the Rtrak, is the channel selected by that rotary
switch in the back left corner? I was thinking it would be convenient to
have access to changing the frequency without opening it up or
reprogramming it on the road.
I was going to ask you about what is on the end of the enclosure,
but just viewed...
What's this about a four hop path in the config program though? hi!
Will frequency programming be done within otwinconfig.exe?

rotary switch. The best place was to place it on the
board at the opposite end. A hole can then be drilled
in the top of the case to access the switch from the
outside. I left that up to the end user since some
people want the unit to be as sealed as possible.

Yep, thats it. The engraving is a bit deep on that
test panel. The shipped version will be about half
that depth engraving. I have another test panel with
the proper engraving depth, but the labels are
mis-placed, so I did'nt want to use that for the

I think I just punched in somthing to get it
programmed. I admit, that is a bit exsessive.

Click that button and you will get this table:
Now you can pre-program up to eight frequencies that
are selectable by the rotary switch or ahrd set by the
radio buttons at the top of the window. As you can
see, the Primary and Secondary freqencies can be
selected with by the selector or radio buttons. The
secondary would be an alternate frequency that is used
every n seconds, set by the "Use secondary every..."
Hope that clears it up.

(in the EU): 1) The duty that varies depending on the article type and
2) value added tax that doesn't vary that much. The duty can be 0%, but
it can also be 10% or even higher. The duty for amateur radio gear is 0%
(GPS-receivers are 3,7% currently) in the EU. The VAT (a bit like sales
tax in the US) is what the country charges for that type of products,
usually around 20% in the EU.
Often shipments where the total or separate amounts of duty/VAT are
under a certain limit, like 10 euros, are passed without collecting the
duty/VAT. So for amateur radio gear, the limit in Finland is about 45
euros (VAT 22%). The exact limit probably varies between countries. And
of course if you write 20 USD in the green duty form that goes outside
the packaging, it might pass through customs even if the real value of
the contents is 200 USD... or it might not.
I'd recommend including a clear invoice or shipment list inside the
packaging that includes the monetary values of the goods and shipping.
And if you know the duty class of products, you might want to include
those as well to minimize the duty clerk's searching trouble.
