80m condx were less than ideal this evening. Ck-In was bumpier than usual. The combination of doubles and coattails kept NCS hopping during Early Ck-In. While we usually copy most members, they don’t all copy each other. It’s hard to avoid doubling signals we don’t copy. Overall, we’re doing very well with unfavorable band condx. For Phone nets, it’s a much greater challenge.

ORCA DIGITAL NET Welcomes Mike KJ7GI in Palm Springs,CA. We’ll ask him to review our Quick-Start Guide: http://orcadigitalnet.com/quick-start/  Welcome back to Mike K7MSS in St.George,UT and Emery KE7YX in Pendelton,OR. We appreciate their support and participation.

To support tonight’s NBEMS Exercise, we added time-stamps to Ck-in. QNI/QNX time is part of NCS logging duties on Emergency and Traffic nets. We’re just beginning to focus on Emergency/Traffic net NCS duties. As Jaye KE6SLS noted, the time-stamp adds 10 characters to each Ck-In, extending TX time. We’ll probably skip the time-stamp when the NBEMS Exercise doesn’t require logging time.

Our NBEMS Exercise instructions may be improving. Four of six Ops nailed the Exercise. On the ICS-309 Communications Log screen, Ck-In time goes in the ‘Time’ column. Ck-In CAllSIGN goes in ‘From’.  We don’t yet know what Traffic they hold, so nothing goes in ‘To’. We’re using the ‘Message’ column for Ck-In status. For actual events, we’ll enter Subject and/or file-name.

You may recall Doug K7KY sending a tip about Time/Date Macro Tags earlier this year. He discovered that some Time/Date Tags in Manual 4.1.20 Ch 18.3 pp287, Date Time Specifiers, don’t work. Yesterday, he noticed that a number of these special Tags have blank spaces adjacent to the brackets. There can be NO space between the brackets and text <xxx>. Remove these spaces and most of the Tags work correctly. None of the examples in Ch18.4 pp288 work until these spaces are removed. A couple still don’t work. Same for the Macro Editor’s ‘Select Tag’ Menu, some time/date Tags don’t work.

Doug is talking with NTS Digital Region 7 Manager, Chuck W5KAV. It sound like we can pass digital NTS Traffic directly into NTS Hubs with Hub/Mgr approval. All western Hubs use VARA. ORCA & WDN will need a NTS Liaison Op capable of working VARA. This seems doable. Initially, a single willing Op can Liaison NTS digital Hubs for both nets.

Thank you for emailing Test Images for the Net Report. These published images are more meaningful when coupled with station/antenna info. Speaking of member station/antenna info, we keep this data in FLDIGI’s Logging window, ‘Notes’, so It’s immediately available during nets.

ANNOUNCEMENTS
Tonight’s NBEMS Exercise features FLMSG ICS-309. In emergencies, we’ll use ICS-309 to Log stations and record Traffic. For Emergency/Traffic nets, NCS must Log stations as we do each session, and also keep accurate Traffic records. NCS needs to know who holds traffic, who is off-freq passing traffic, when traffic is passed and who received it, and who holds traffic w/o receiver. We don’t practice this level of control and record keeping. Emergency nets frequently pass traffic off-net-frequency. NCS must know who is QNI(checked-in), but currently off-freq passing Traffic, who is on-freq, and who is QNX. There may be numerous Ops off-net-freq passing traffic on a busy net.

We need to develop and practice Emergency net traffic management. Currently, we have no way to forward digital NTS(Radiogram) traffic. Western Digital Net hasn’t processed much formal traffic. Most formal traffic on WDN has been make-work for practice. Should we be called for a major Emergency, we would be expected to control and track all messages, in, out, & held. We’ve done very well with digital traffic-handling. We need to complete our EMCOMM skillset and incorporate traffic-management in practice. Your thoughts and suggestions are welcome.

Liaison stations are common on Emergency and Traffic nets. They represent other nets, services, etc. Liaison stations receive/forward traffic to/from specific partners like WinLink, NTS digital-backbone, and Local/Regional nets. Net Control has enough responsibilities already. Liaisons can help process traffic-handling tasks. Considering the speed and accuracy advantage digital nets enjoy over Phone and CW nets, we should expect a greater demand for our services when speed and accuracy are crucial. Currently, our only avenue to forward digital Radiograms to NTS is reading Radiograms into the Beaver State Phone Net. BSN meets every evening, 1730p, 3.920khz.  http://www.k6ugs.com/BSN.htm  We can do this in an emergency, but it’s not practical or efficient. We’ll contact NTS management for a solution.

Last week, Doug K7KY forgot to call for Late Ck-Ins between the NBEMS Exercise and Traffic Round. This further reduced time available for Ops to complete the NBEMS Exercise before being called for Traffic. We’ll be mindful of leaving more time for those at the top of the Roster to complete the Exercise.

Tonight’s exercise begins in OFDM500F (480?wpm,500hz,FEC). We’ll fill

ORCA < de WB7EUX – Happy Holidays to all. Most stations were strong and decodable tonight.
First, Doug and Mindy have done an outstanding job in creating and maintaining a wonderful training resource. Thank you for the effort. I, and I’m sure all other ops, appreciate the hard work you have put into ORCA NET.

Doug’s comments were relevant and welcome. How we accomplish what he laid out is a quandry. Without more traning days, comprehensive documentation, and more NCS resources the task is difficult.

So let’s talk camels. Perhaps a committee to explore added training days, documentation creation, plus recruitment and training for additional NCS ops.

In addition more QNX stations that are willing to make the jump to active. I understand: It took me weeks before I ventured forth from QNX to active. But the payoff was satisfaction with operating efficiently and effectively with only a few skinned knuckles along the way. All is well. 73 de WB7EUX

Before RSID: <<2022-12-14T04:15Z MFSK-32 @ 3581-1500>>

Had over 6 inches of snow over the weekend and now just plain cold with snow still on the ground. Thx for the net. Like the time checked-in. Ordered more batteries for the cabin will arrive this Thursday. Hope everyone stays healthy this holiday season.

Sorry about butting in was hoping to give Gene more time. Won’t do that agn. Band was a little tough tonight. Only copied W1EEP Flamp 83% and no other Ops Flamp. <0416Z> KJ7VGV BTN

k7ky, 5db, 95%, FLA 0% 12% 100%,

It was SO QUIET when I turned on the rig, I thought I’d made a mistake on antenna switch!  Then Mindy came on and about buggered my earholes! 😄

Many of our Utah ops must be busy with ARC meeting tonight.

After reading the net report from last week’s ORCA DN, I missed an important night–this ham was busy at ARC meeting.  I would really REALLY like to have a chance to see what our active hams are using for antennas.  The net report makes it impossible to decipher the transmitted responses to NCS’s query.

Of note, I have a 210′ long doublet that is folded.  Imagine a typical inverted “V”, now I fold that into an inverted “M” so the wire in the air really is 210′.  It’s the only way to fit a big antenna in a small city lot!  Feed point on tower is about 45′, first masts at 30′ and final masts at 24′.

Wow Mindy, talk about coattail check-ins tonight!  I think it will be a bumGa lg .  Last night, my phone net only lasted 30 minutes–the band was just shy of impossible for phone contacts!

Don’t thinÁ s  a fan of the TIME STAMP on check-ins.  It’s neato but sure takes a lot of time to tx.

Been dealing with cold AM temps here.  Frost and cold don’t mix well for this old hippie.  Looks like the rest of the week will be same. At least the days are sunny and shack power near 100%.

Stay well, practice often, and make sure to have some fun doing it!

K7KY Doug ur up 4 Comments  < W7ZAP

ORCA < K7KY
I really misjudged band condx for the NBEMS Exercise. OFDM was a bust for sure. And, I’ve been having trouble w/FLDIGI all week. Oddly, Reverse suddenly switched. When the button is inactive, it’s in LSB. When active, it’s LSB. Backwards. Deleting and reinstalling doesn’t help. Today, it seemed to fix itself. I shouldn’t have trusted it; it reverted to broken mid-NBEMS Exercise. It must be something astray in the config files. Rats!

I’ve written to a NTS Official to learn how we can pass digital Radiograms to NTS.

We really appreciate Tom WB7EUX’s comments. We enjoy the work and we couldn’t do it without each of you. It’s truly a group effort. Yes, we need more Ops able to run nets. It’s not so hard to learn when you do it in stages, like Don KJ7VGV and Bruno KG7VVN are doing with our NBEMS Exercises.  Don has gone further, calling WDN on a regular basis. All new learning has some tough moments. You’re among colleagues who wish you well and will assist when they can. If they can’t help, they at least won’t make it difficult for you
