yes, indeed, your link is correct, thanks for correcting the typo!
Besides the general ability for everyone to switch on DI2BO for a pre-set
time by phone I am myself able to control DI2BO by mobile phone (by SMS).
Currently I just can switch it on and off, later I will also be able to
switch the power from high to low and also the mode from CW to QRSS and
I can update the website information by e-Mail from my mobile phone, too, so
I think I have everything under control from my pocket -hi- ... I can even
read the temperature of the PA-module from a remote location. The toy doing
all that is a new cllphone/remote control module that you can get for
example at Conrad Electronic.
