I have a reached an interesting milestone with the Internet Remote Amateur Radio Station this morning. Over the holidays I purchased a new HTC Touch Pro cell phone and switched service providers to Sprint. More important was that my new plan has unlimited data and that the HTC Touch Pro uses Windows Mobile 6.1. Unfortunately, the Skype mobile application does not work on my HTC Touch Pro and HTC support does not seem to be a high priority. Luckily I found Fring. Fring is an alternative Skype client that is interoperable with Skype! This morning I installed the Fring voip application and connected to the Internet Remote.
At 12:15AM EST I contacted WA4TXE over a local repeater. I was pleased to hear that my audio was intelligible and that this might be a great alternative to using a HT!
