I’m Randy, a 40-year old ham living in Amersfoort, which is located about 25 miles east from Amsterdam. Licensed since aged 17 (1997) and active on all bands from 160 meters up till 3cm tough VHF, UHF and SHF are prefered in (SSB) voice, ATV, CW and weak-signal/DIGI modes.

On the day to day job I work as Independent technical consultant specified in Linux Infrastructure  solutions. Also doing some hands-on support stuff for repeater group Hobbyscoop, the annual Ballon Fox Hunt and trying to promote HAMNET-activities with a group of ham’s throughout the country.

The 1th station from the Netherlands on 144, 432 and 1296 MHz in the QRP section and the 2nd station on 144 and 432 MHz in de low-power section based on DAC and NAC results during 2018.


  1. Hi Randy
    I’m using the new IC-9700 for the QO-100 Satellite operation with the transverter from PE1CMO.

    I would like to use the SDRPlay RSP2Pro as a panadapter for the IC-9700. Because if I use the SAT Mode the scope in the small screen is just to small. So I’m using SDR Uno SDR Software to have a big scope on the PC screen.

    But I’m not able to synchronize the Freq. of the IC-9700 with the software SDR Uno. The IC-9700 is connected to the PC (COM 5) with a USB cable and I’m using the default CI-V settings.

    I also tried it with omnirig, but no success.

    Do you have an idea?
