microHAM Station master

The microHAM Station is the successor to the popular Band-Decoder and offers many additional features. With the Station you integrate many devices of your cabin: automatic switching of the antenna with freely programmable band decoder, direction of the rotator controlled by the computer, CAT control of your radio, switching of band-pass filters, a sequencer for amplifiers and, last but not less important, integration of your SteppIR antenna. With the iLink connection you can further integrate your existing audio interface with microHAM: it works with Micro-Keyer, Micro-Keyer2, Digi-keyer, Micro-Keyer2R (+) etc.

Most control functions are derived from frequency and PTT information. This offers 20 frequency-dependent output switches to control an antenna switch (for example). Some antennas can be declared as receiving only the antenna, the Station will block transmission on these antennas. A freely programmable sequencer is also available, for example to control the delayed switching of preamplifiers or amplifiers.

The intelligent rotor control allows almost all manufacturers and rotor types to be used. The position information can be an analog voltage (eg Yaesu, Hy-Gain) or a digital pulse (eg SPID). Depending on the band and the individual configuration, the antenna switches on automatically, for example after entering only the prefix of a call or a locator (depending on the register program).

Several fixed antennas can be grouped into a "virtual rotr", selecting the right antenna according to the destination. This can be used with antennas such as 4-Squares or Beverages.

If a SteppIR or Ultrabeam antenna is used, it can also be controlled by the station. This has several advantages. A SteppIR antenna directly coupled to the transceiver will follow every frequency change, even when another antenna is in use. The station transmits the control information to the variable antenna only if the antenna is active too. Another advantage is that it is possible to compensate large deviations, the antenna does not tune again between Tx and Rx.

With clearly arranged station controls, virtually all functions can be controlled from the front panel. This makes the operation independent of a computer, provided the band limits and the configuration have been programmed once before.

The integrated CAT interface allows almost all the radios to be connected to the computer and to the registry software. The existing microHAM interfaces can be integrated with the iLink port. The required "iLink" cable (both 6D MiniDIN and 1: 1 sides) is included in the shipment. Complete a 10 optional MK-KEYPAD keyboard keys, see below.
