Another night of unfavorable band condx. Prior to ORCA, we were unable to check into the Humboldt Emergency net, 75m SSB, but were able to connect the Humboldt Emergency Digital Net on 80m. Humboldt is about 90m south of Brookings. ORCA was really small tonight. Our UT contingent had an ARC meeting. For others, the band just didn’t cooperate. We heard from several Ops by email; they could barely hear, or heard nothing. Dave K7DV relayed Craig KD7CL who’s only 50m north. We didn’t hear him. Dave also heard a weak K8xxx, but we didn’t connect. Some nights are like that.

The FLAMP exercise was very interesting. We’d planned to begin in THOR 50×1, and fill with DOMX22 and MFSK-32. When Dave CONFIRMED THOR 50×1 immediately, we thought it was going to be quick and easy. Gene’s signal was much stronger than Dave’s, so we thought we had better path to Gene. But no. By the time we CONFIRMED Gene, we’d gone on to MFSK16, OLIVIA 8/500, and finally OLIVIA 8/250. On the last pass, Mindy W7ZAP sent block 6 two times by entering ‘6,6’ in the missing-block window. It was a mode workout and a valuable learning experience. The net was small; we had plenty of time to complete the task, just as we would with emergency traffic. For emergency traffic, we’ll use everything we know.

If you couldn’t check in tonight, don’t be discouraged. It’s radio; especially HF radio at solar minimum. We hope for better propagation next week and we hope to work with you then. 73 Doug K7KY

ANNOUNCEMENTS 12/February/2019

Tonight’s FLAMP exercise distributes the file, ‘ex105.txt’, an FLDIGI/FLMSG/
FLAMP exercise. If you complete the optional exercise, send the file to NCS
in the Traffic round.

It snowed here on Friday night; there was a couple inches on the ground and
it stayed until Sunday afternoon. Unusual for Brookings, but not exceptional.
We had all our outdoor faucets running for three days. No frozen pipes.

The website is restored to May 2018 and we’ve updated the mainpage map, but
content added since last May is all missing. We’ll replace it as well as we can
recall, when we can. We plan to add a video-streaming page too. We’ve been
talking with another husband/wife team in Andover, KS, Wayne KD0WAT and Barb
KD0WAU. They’re learning the NCS role for their local 2m digital net. We made
a short video of ORCA check-in so they can see how it’s done on our end. This
may be useful to anyone interested in digital NCS routines.

I always enjoy the fluctuations in net sizes; big or small… they’re all good for different practice opportunities. Looks like band is long and 50-150 mile stations are not heard by NCS. Thanks to Dave K7DV for the relays.

Wow! What a change inthe band! Dave K7DV really dropped by the traffic round. Gene W1EEP is still booming in here. Crazy condx! I knew Gene would have an extreme WX report… -9…Yikes! Stay warm Gene! Appreciate working with you guys Hope to see you on the WF agn soon.

W7ZAP < K7KY tnx Mindy great report.. I agree with Gene about travel to meeting in this WX and the deer potential is even worse… having hit a deer on my MC I’m shy of speeding along in deer country BREAK are there any further comments ?? < K7KY

I was going to comment on the small net, but I called another 7 ck-in net around Christmas I like them all, but the short net give more time to expirement and not bore everyone.. BREAK any more comments? monitoring stations welcome too.. < NCS
