12/Jan/16, ORCA DIGITAL NET,reception/copy report:

Check-ins: 8
Stations:
WA6NBG
N6IET in&out
K7TRP
AI6CD monitor
AE5ED Steve in SD
KE6SLS in&out
W7ZAP
K7KY NCS

Well, after testing everything before the net, I goofed and called for check-ins before
running the preamble. Thanks for cruising along like it didn’t happen.

The net was really fun tonight. We had two new Ops check-in, Tim K7TRP and Steve AE5ED. Tim is the OREGON DIGITAL NET NCS. ODN meets every Friday at 0400z
2000p on 3579.5, PSK-31. I met Steve while visiting digital nets. Steve called me when
I was having trouble connecting with NCS, I think. Steve is our most distant participant. His antenna is a double bazooka and tonight he ran 100w. It’s really nice to have new digital Ops drop in.

And, nice to have Don WA6NBG in Eureka,CA back with us. He’s been busy and we’ve missed him since resuming the net after summer vacation. Rick N6IET, one of my CW buddies, checked in&out to monitor, but jumped back into the comment round with a detailed summary of net signals. You can count on QRP CW Ops to pay close attention to signal quality. Another Eureka Op, Norman AI6CD checked-in and out to monitor. Near net-end, Don notified us that Norman had lost shore power. I’m so happy our home
power didn’t fail tonight. It’s still quite windy here.

Another in&out tonight was Jaye KE6SLS. Jaye is recovering from a surgical procedure and will be unable to type for a few weeks. I miss Jaye; he always adds a bit of relaxed good humor to the nets. Mindy’s traffic listed some CW contests and events for the weekend. I like to dabble in the weekend CW contests.

Oh, Oh! I was just reviewing the net log and see I missed a late check-in. Jim AJ2K
tried to check-in when I was working with Tim. I noticed a short double, but missed
his callsign. Jim is another digital Op I’ve met while visiting other digital nets. Sorry
to miss you, Jim. Try again and I’ll try to stay alert. I sometimes get a little behind
when my attention is totally used up. Mindy, being only 6’ away, helps me stay on
top of things, mostly.

I regret to hear the passing of Ralph KG6UUF and our thoughts and prayers go out to Sally KG6WWK. Losing your life partner is a sad event in anyone’s life.

A big thank you to everyone who checked in tonight. You’re a great group of digital Ops
and I really enjoy working with you. I hope to see you all next Tuesday evening for
another digital session. If you want to try something new or suggest any changes to the
net, drop me an email. 73 Doug K7KY

net connects digital Amateur Operators with common interest in
training, information-sharing, and mutual-aid. Visitors welcome.

FLMSG/TRAFFIC & KEYBOARD stations check-in with your
‘CALLSIGN’ only. New/visiting stations please include NAME/QTH.

Monitoring stations may check-in-&-out with: ‘CALLSIGN IN&OUT’.
Monitoring stations are not called during net.

After check-in, be patient while NCS generates the rotation list.

NCS transmits Rotation list
NCS transmits Announcements

NCS calls each station in order for traffic or keyboard *

Next, a round (or more) of comments, copy reports, questions, etc, (keyboard or BLANKFORM as you like)

Closing Announcement

* LOCK fldigi @ 1500, enable RxID, TxID, AFC.

ORCA DIGITAL NET, Announcements, 12/Jan/16

Suddenly very windy here! Lights are flickering; I hope we can complete the net. Everything runs solar except my desktop PC. Laptop is configured for
ORCA, but not up to date.

Ken K7IFG usually sends ARRL bulletins in FLAMP a half hour
before ORCA begins. It’s a good opportunity to practice FAAMP.

If you can’t copy NCS or other stations well, you can try changing
modes. Please select the fastest mode that conditions will
support. Olivia is very slow and should be our last resort. When
MFSK-32 is not printing well, try MFSK-16 next. It may be
sufficient to maintain contact.

Weak stations provide an opportunity to practice digital relay.

!#!!#$#!!.. Website (orcadigitalnet.com) still down! AHRRRrrrr…

Checking in late? Send your CALLSIGN during a lull or print it
nearby on the waterfall.

Have to leave early? Please check-out with NCS. < K7KY K7DV DE AE5ED QNI QRU AE5ED < K7KY GE Please say your name and qth .tu < K7KY K7KY de AE5ED my name ... Steve my QTH ....

Are there any late checkins or visitors? I’m going to send an old file in FLAMP. It’s the macro primer that some may not have seen… If you’re not running flamp, you can still read the file as it’s short and not compressed… here comes..

{FC13:1}FLDIGI Macro prints CALLSIGN on waterfall

Here’s a simple mac
{FC13:2}ro for printing your callsign anywhere in the
passband with one
{FC13:3} click. It prints in a few seconds. The macro
does a little hou
{FC13:4}sekeeping, before and after printing. This
example prints a 4
{FC13:5}character callsign on the wf and sets the
modem to MFSK-32. T
{FC13:6}he curser remains in place. You can
also easily change the mod
{FC13:7}em setting.

Here’s all it takes to configure and run this mac
{FC13:8}ro:

1) FLDIGI topbar menu: Configure/IDs/Video
Section
{FC13:9}: Video Preamble ID
A
{FC13:10}ll left side options: unchecked

{FC13:11} Enter CALLSIGN in window

{FC13:12} Set: CharsRow: One character more than
{FC13:13} CALLSIGN (W1AW = 5)

{FC13:14} SAVE

2) Replace my CALLSIGN with yours
{FC13:15}
Replace with any mode ()

3)
{FC13:16} Right click a blank macro button (or any button you don’t use)
{FC13:17}to open the Macro Editor. Copy the macro below (modified w/Ur
{FC13:18}Call) and paste it into the editor. At the bottom, name the mac
{FC13:19}ro, ‘Print ID’.

Be sure to click APPLY before leaving that bu
{FC13:20}tton or closing the editor.
Back up to the menu bar: File/Macro
{FC13:21}s/Save Save your macro . That’s it.

have them on a computer file yet.

I just have them in a notebook. Will be putting computer next thing I do.

Hey Jaye! Hope ur back soon!

Fun to have new stations and member stations that have been away checking into the net.

K7KY de N6IET, Rick in Los Angeles.
Thanks for doing the net, Doug!
Band is in bad shape this evening. I’m running 50 watts to my rooftop vertical.
I got about 90% print on you, Doug,
but only 20% print on Don.
No copy at all on Tim.
I got about 50% of Steve’s final comments; nothing earlier.
About 60% print on Mindy early and 100% at the end.
I used FLAMP this time but would have needed fills for 100% copy.

I had already typed all that into my Tx buffer and didn’t know how to just gie my call to see if I had the floor.
Sorry about that. Nope that’s it. Thanks!
BTU Doug K7KY de N6IET k

N6IET No worries here, Rick… It’s a learning net (-: any more comments? Norman AI6CD is out with power failure. < K7KY Before we close, I want to say how funny it is to have Rick concerned about small details when he indulges me in sometimes poor CW OK I think we're finished for tonight. It's been great to have new visitors and one of them from SD... I think its a geat thing to visit the different digital nets and I hope we all get to know each other better and share our skills and knowledge... This concludes the ORCA DIGITAL NET for:1/12/2016 20:47 Pacific Standard Time Thank's for participating in the net tonight. We appreciate your time and input. Hope to see you again next week. 73 < Doug K7KY NCS
