Our calm, quiet sun is playing havoc with propagation. Skip remains short for 80m, giving stations further away difficult reception of NCS. We’ve not logged any stations east of Idaho in these conditions.

We had some excitement prior to the net. Doug K7KY’s FLDIGI v4.1.03 was unstable; some macros didn’t work correctly and the WF froze. He had to install an older version to run from his thumb drive. And Windows being Windows, reassigned his thumb drive from D:\ to E:\, even though it was in the same USB port. Time to rewrite all the ‘addressed’ macros. I thought I might be flying solo for awhile, but Doug got everything working with a few moments to spare!

Each net we call on a station we know has the ORCA Relay macro installed to relay the ck-in call.  Add the macro below, if you don’t already have it installed. It’s good to be handy with macros, they’re very useful. If you don’t use macros and we ask you to relay Ck-In, just type it in the TX buffer.

The FLAMP exercise was interesting tonight. Responses to the Optional exercise were enlightening, as was mode performance. The question asks, “In an emergency, could you pass digital traffic between HF and local VHF nets?” This question hearkens back to the how ORCA DIGITAL NET came into existence. There was a variety of responses; every station operates in different circumstances. If your station is also capable of working digital on VHF/UHF, you can send traffic you copy on ORCA to your local 2m net. It’s important to know where FLDIGI stores files and how to RELAY those files. Practice now with colleagues in a relaxed setting and you’ll be ready when called to work in emergencies.

Doug K7KY used THOR 50 x 1 (although he listed THOR 50 x 2), MFSK64 and MFSK32. Three of seven active stations CONFIRMED THOR 50 x 1. Another 2 stations CONFIRMED MFSK64, sent by relay stations: Jaye KE6SLS and Greg KG7DMI. Gene W1EEP was plagued with difficult copy, even from the relay stations, and was unable to CONFIRM.

Here are responses to the FLAMP exercise VHF/HF question:

K6ETA: Yes, voice, data (packet Winlink with binary attachments and NBEMS) and KBD traffic can all be relayed, both manually and automatically.

K7DV: Yes no problem

KA7FOO: Yes. At the moment would be a bit cumbersom. Am using two different computers, but filezilla works great.

KE6SLS: Yes, I have done this along with passing pictures over repeaters. My VHF side isn’t as complete as my HF side as I have to use 2 rigs.

KG7DMI: Not likely I’d be smooth, but I think I could get the job done.
So how do you send Block 0 Twice? and TxID twice?

How to send Block 0 (message header) twice:
On the FLAMP Transmit tab, select ‘2’ for Header Repeat. This option is not available on the Recieve tab, so not an option when relaying whole file.

How to send TxID twice:
Use a macro!

Thanks for working with us again. We learn so much from each other and the changing band conditions keep things interesting and challenging. Looking forward to working with you again next Tuesday evening.

ANNOUNCEMENTS 11/June/2019

Tonight’s FLAMP exercise distributes the file, ‘ex123.txt’, an FLDIGI/FLMSG/
FLAMP exercise. If you complete the optional exercise within, send that file
to NCS in the Traffic round using FLAMP.

B4 the FLAMP exercise we announce the modes so you know what’s coming. We
send the message header (block 0) twice, and send TxID at least twice. When
band condx prevent you from decoding RSID, you have the information and
sufficient time to set mode yourself. The header block will come twice;
you have time to change mode w/o missing the 2nd pass.

Get Ready: ARRL Field Day 2019, 22-23 June 2019.

Net Report posted soon: http://orcadigitalnet.com/reports/

It’s HOT here. Way way way toooo hot. Fans running, looking forward to sundown!

Even my cats are complaining about the heat here. We broke many long standing records today. Cats are now lounging on the back patio in the shade! Temp in shack still about 85 Deg F.
Gosh, the band is just not getting into Utah. Having a very hard time copying. Used 75 watts for FLamp RELAY tonight and will send comments with same power.

Did anyone work 10M last night? I worked a So-Cal station and heard several nets above 28.400MHz, also copied the beacon station wa6apq! Very nice to hear sigs on 10M agn. K6ETA Steve wasn’t even heard here at check in time. Hmmmmm.

I think last weeks EX asked about Field Day. YES, we are activating AA6DX one of my mentors in honor of his vast years of DX and sharing so much to so many at our ham club. TU Mark AA6DX for lending us your call this year. We will activate on Woodley Island!

Will send post net image report following the net and send images to NCS.

KA6BIM < W7ZAP 100% copy Dave, I switched manually to PSK31 to copy ur last. We dont usually use that mode, but worked well. We dont use it because it doesent auto change. You may want to change config on FLAMP and enabole auto sync on FLAMP to FLADIGI mode. Very useful. You did fine on the reports. When u hv a lot of files, hv to be sure the 1 u report on is selected. Great job. BTU < W7ZAP

KA6BIM < W7ZAP Good to have you working with us. You will hv to look at ur FLMSG config too… it will ‘slave’ modes to FLDIGI, like FLAMP. Send us an email if you hv issues sorting it out. Hope this heat wave breaks soon! Hope to see you on the WF again soon. 73 Dave < W7ZAP
