System Server PC's:
There are two IBM PC Server 325 computers in the repeater hub.
The IBM PC 325 Server 266Mhz co-controller (Click here for IBM PC 325 Server web site)PC is on the top.
The IBM PC 325 Server 200Mhz (Click here for IBM PC 325 Server web site)for the IRLP server is on the bottom.
The servers sit on heavy duty rack mount shelf with an Allied Telesyn CentreCom AT-3012TR rack mounted hub/repeater sandwiched in between it and a similiar IBM unit at 266Mhz running MS-Windows 98 that acts as a co-controller for all the repeater system bels and whiles working in conjunction with the RC-1000 repeater controller. Both systems are configured with 64MB RAM and large SCSI hard disk drives.
In the photos below alone with the PC 325 servers, one can also see parts of the the actual GE Master II VHF low band radio that is the 6 meter repeater, the RC-1000 controller and rack mounted Bird watt meter. There are additional GE Master II radios being configured for repeaters on other bands, remote bases, link receibvers, link transceivers and a duplex UHF linking hub.
The missing items in the photo's are the 2nd units keyboard and mouse that is off to the side on a counter top for now. I need to find a pair of rack mount 1U height slide out shevles cheap for both sets of keyboards and mice. The video monitor is on an A/B switch and also off to the side on a counter top. The monitor will not be mounted in the current rack. That will wait until I add a second rack for the additional radio equipment that will come on-line over the next year.
The PC 325 Servers have front doors that are lockable. They have multiple status indicators that light through the door when closed.
