Michael Fletcher OH2AUE and Mikael Nousiainen OH3BHX were responsible for updating the remote station hardware. As a part of the update, they made an effort to improve the RF environment by reducing potential sources of interference. The new rig was installed in a rack case that attenuates RF interference. Additionally, filters were added to the input power cables, and the switching power supply for the Raspberry Pi running the remote control software was replaced with a linear power supply.
