80m lived up to it’s Solar Minimum reputation tonight; connection with distant stations was very difficult.  Check in was lighter than usual, maybe because some ORCA regulars could not copy NCS. Gene W1EEP in Pine Valley,ID checked in&out because copy was so sketchy; that’s unusual for Gene.  Our background noise was S-9+, unusual for us.  With only four active Ops in the weekly FLAMP exercise, we had a bit more time to work through a difficult band.  Mindy W7ZAP used six modes to fill the four stations, completing the file in slow but robust MFSK-16.  We like to fill stations by RELAY to engage more Ops with FLAMP features, but tonight we ran all six modes from NCS.  You will work like this when passing traffic with another Op and no relay station.  Mindy used: THOR-100, PSK250R, THOR-50×1, THOR-22, MFSK-32, MFSK-16.

We’ve begun calling for Late Ck-Ins before the FLAMP Exercise to reduce interruptions during the exercise.  The FLAMP exercise is the most demanding of attention and focus of all net activities. When you miss Ck-In, monitor the net until we call for Late Ck-Ins.  We’re now looking for Late Ck-Ins at four points in the net.

FLMSG accomodates Custom Forms.  You can modify FLMSG forms or create completely new ones.  All Custom Forms have to be at both ends of the exchange.  The Custom Form can be sent to other stations by attachments to email, flmsg, flamp, and even Winlink.

As the days get longer, we’re having more difficulty connecting stations early in the net.  Condx do improve around sunset.  We’re thinking to return to our original start time, 1930p/0230z.  Let us know how this will work for you.

ANNOUNCEMENTS 07/MAY/2019

Tonight’s FLAMP exercise distributes the file, ‘ex118.txt’, an FLDIGI/FLMSG/
FLAMP exercise. We continue exploring FLMSG Forms with a Red Cross form.
If you complete the optional exercise, send that file to NCS in the Traffic
round tonight or any net.

FLAMP supports Custom forms:
‘The custom html entry form needs to be at both the sending and receiving end
… The custom html form can be transmitted to new receiving stations via any
means, email attachment, “flmsg file transfer”, or “flamp file transfer”‘.
FLMSG Users Manual 4.0

Late Check-In:
If you miss Ck-In, no problem. Please monitor until NCS calls for late Ck-Ins.
We already look for Late Ck-Ins before the Traffic and Comments rounds and at
closing. Now, we’ll check before the FLAMP exercise too. Emergency traffic
anytime with your CALLSIGN. Early Ck-In begins @ 1815p, sometimes earlier.

ORCA Review:
If ORCA DIGITAL NET was a business, we’d want Aaron AG7GK to head our PR Dept.
He certainly gave us a great review on the NBEMS forum:
https://groups.io/g/nbems/topic/ft4_for_nbems_net_call/31420750?p=,,,20,0,0,0::recentpostdate%2Fsticky,,,20,2,0,3
1420750

We’ll continue sending the Signal Evaluation Image with the Postamble. Please
send both images by email; we’ll add them to the Net Report.

Great exercise Mindy Et Al… a tough band is perfect for learning how to complete a file when the band is not making it easy… this is what we would hv to do

with emergency traffic… we would exhaust all our modes b4 we quit tnx to all BREAK

Late Ck-in? Early Ck-Out? < K7KY

Time 4 the Comment round with only 4 active stations we hv a bit more time good thing we needed extra time for the FLAMP exercise… Comments begins with
Doug KA7FOO < NCS

OK to me. Heard everybody. But KR7KR I missed block 3.
Spring may be turning into summer. In the 80’s a couple times last week. And getting summer afternoon rain showers. So … What was / is wrong with Utah tonight? But

then we do not have Idaho or Arizona tonight.

Trying of several modes is neccessary, but relays may be quicker and easier. And that is the major reason why I like FlDigi. Relaying made easy!
KA7FOO
KA7FOO

RR Doug we usually try to spread relays around in the FLAMP exercise tonite we were trying different modes bREAK Next for comments is Steve K6ETA < NCS

K7KY < K6ETA Tough traffic exercise tonight! I wonder if having another Station relay who copied all on the first rounds would be better than trying all the modes?

Looks like Doug had the same thought! Anyways it’s all great practice and sometimes a smaller net allows for more experimentation!!! Thanks as always!

73 de K6ETA
SK

RR Steve u & Doug are correct, of course…. tonite we have only 4 active stations so we were more or less simiulating two Ops passing traffic not having a

relay available so they had to try all the modes they know (-: we try to arrange this exericise so there’s lots of opportunity to use all the FLAMP tools RELAY is

very important we’ve not forgotten tu BREAK Next up is Brad WA7HHE maybe he can say why not so many CC ops tonite over < NCS

Have an S9+ B/G noise level tonite. Worst copy I’ve had in a long time, especially for digital. Unusually difficult path to UT. PSK250R and MFSK16 did the task

tonight. Remember if you want to TX a block a couple times, enter ‘2,2’ or whichever block, in the blocks field. Yes, should have used relays in the FLAMP exercise…

next time!
