Not the greatest band condx tonight, but good enough for digital radio. When condx permit, we like to change modes for the weekly FLAMP exercise. Leaving TXid off for most activities means we have to remember to turn it on for mode change and turn it off again. Mode changes during the FLAMP exercise gives additional practice in managing TXid.

Reception reports during Comments revealed that some stations were not printing others at all tonight. This explains a couple doubles. Even Pre-toning doesn’t prevent doubles when the stations can’t hear each other. That’s HF radio.

Here, unlike an Emergency net, you are welcome to send your traffic in a mode you think the band will support. You don’t need NCS permission. You are responsible for activating/deactivating TXid. NCS will restore the net’s working-mode. Before changing mode, consider how well you’re copying the other members. While practicing digital traffic on ORCA, you are sending to the entire net. In emergency situations you will usually be sending to one station, NCS or your receiver.

On emergency nets, NCS determines mode. When NCS sends you off net-frequency to pass emergency traffic, you and your receiver determine the mode. It’s good to remember the differences between our net and an actual emergency net. Here, we want our traffic to print for as many members as possible, providing more opportunities for practice. For emergency nets, only NCS and your receiver (and possibly a relay station) are essential.

Thanks to Gene W1EEP for sending the signal evaluation image every week. You can see how well my 35w signal was received in Pine Valley,UT. Here’s how the image printed for Howard KB6NN in Eureka! CA.

RX: W1EEP UT
RX: KB6NN CA

Thanks also to everyone who participated tonight. Even with poor condx, doubles, NCS errors, etc. the net ran very well. Nice work by very competent Operators. CU next week, I hope. 73 Doug K7KY

WELCOME to the ORCA DIGITAL NET

Doug K7KY NCS, SW/OR, 35w, 135′ Doublet @ 110′

ORCA meets every Tuesday 1930p/0230z – 3.581+1500 – MFSK-32

Software by Dave W1HKJ: FLDIGI, FLMSG, FLAMP

ORCA is a DIRECTED net, dedicated to learning and developing

digital operating skills and practicing digital traffic handling.

ORCA connects Amateur Operators with common interest in training,

information-sharing, and mutual-aid. Practice makes perfect!

New to ORCA? See: http://orcadigitalnet.com/quick-start/

Following check-in NCS sends:

1) B/W Test image for signal evaluation

2) Rotation list

3) Announcements

Weekly FLAMP exercise with Mindy W7ZAP

Traffic Round: NCS calls each station in rotation

No traffic? (practice/formal) No Problem. Send ‘QRU’.

Hold keyboard dialogue for Comment Round. Questions anytime.

Comment Round: comments, reception reports, observations, questions

(keyboard or FLMSG BLANK Form as you like)

LOCK: fldigi curser @ 1500,

ENABLE: RxID.

DISABLE: TXid, end-of-TX-ID, Mode-ID, AFC

DISABLE: CWID, CW-Postamble-ID, Auto-Pre-Tone.

Use pre-tone only when doubles are likely.

Unlike FLMSG, FLAMP does not detect FLAMP traffic when closed.

Configure FLDIGI to ‘AUTOSTART’ FLAMP. AR

All confirmed… a little messy not my best session :-) BTU < W7ZAP

All ORCA Tnx for ur patience… we’re dealiing with change here… I hv to switch antennas for this exercise and it takes a moment… When we’re just beginnuing to get used to no TXid I’d like the members to follow the mode set by the Op in charge at the moment… We can get fancy with quick switching later when we’ve learned these new routines… here @ NCS we have quite a bit to keep track of and somettimes were at our limmits… thanks for your understanding… I sujggested to Mindy the slow mode MFSK16 when I should have tried something like THOR 22 live & learn… OK BREAK

ka7foo s6 -6db, 100%, fla 62% (missed 2 & 4), hmm, signal dropped on retry

there was a double at one point with NCS, took me a while to get out of wrong mode and find good copy with NCS.

Bands are reported to be in poor condition, but I think we still did pretty darned good! Wish I could

have copied Idaho :(

Really enjoying the sunny, longer evenings, my cats are too! Batteries fully charged after such a long rainy winter.

That’s my report for tonight. Time to round up rogue puss and shut the kitty door for the night!

73 all

The band was tough down this way tonight. Too much QSB

to work the weaker stations, but the stronger ones

punched through. It’s all about the antenna! Well, also

how close/far out you are.

KB6NN must be QRP, but at least he had a good path to Doug and Mindy! Doug, your THOR22 printed nicely here but Dave was

distorted. I think he had RF in his audio…

Thanks Doug and Mindy!

FCC Personal Radio Service Revisions Will Affect GMRS, FRS, CB, Other Part 95 Devices

The rules will increase the number of communications channels for both GMRS and FRS, expand digital capabilities to GMRS (currently allowed

for FRS), and increase the power/range for certain FRS channels to meet consumer demands for longer range communications (while maintainin

g higher power capabilities for licensed GMRS).

The FCC will no longer will certify FRS devices that incorporate GMRS capabilities or capabilities of other services.

Existing GMRS/FRS combination radios that operate at power levels of less than 2 W ERP will be reclassified as FRS devices;

Existing GMRS/FRS radios that operate above the 2 W ERP power level will be reclassified as GMRS devices, requiring an individual license.

Radios that can transmit on GMRS repeater input channels will continue to be licensed individually and not by rule.

The FCC said changes to the decades-old Citizens Band (CB) rules will remove outdated requirements, including certain labeling requirements.

CBers will be allowed to contact stations outside of the FCC-imposed 155.3-mile distance limit. DXing on Citizens Band will become legal too.

KA7FOO FB Doug sounds like good news for our CERT friends… BREAK over to Mindy W7ZAP < K7KY

Still having issues with FLMSG… will paste…

K7KY 100% copy KBD, FLMSG, FLAMP, image

I goofed up before the FLAMP round – switched modes & TXed before I should have. I was looking something up for Doug and misunderstood it was time for me to TX… my bad. Some fading on stations tonight, but overall copy on all stations. Turning TXid on & off for mode changes is not smooth for me yet, but I still like the change.

73,

Mindy W7ZAP SK

W7ZAP Tnx Mindy BREAK I think the change to TXid is challanging for all… it’s not easy for us here to remember to turn it off & on with a nummber of other tasks to keep in mind… Although lots of things went astray tonight, I don’t find it frustrating it’s the same kind of things that occure in emergency condx and it’s good to encounter them here where it dosn’t do anything but increase our skills..
