An Idaho station persistently sending CQ into the ether really complicated Ck-In tonight. Despite ongoing interference, we stuck to our Ck-in routine and logged 20 stations, 6 of them Active. The QRM station was strong and unrelenting. Both NCS tried to contact him as did Tom WB7EUX and Gene W1EEP. They were acknowledged briefly, but the CQs continued. It was the worst interference in ORCA history, and it didn’t derail Ck-In. If you don’t usually read the Net Log, this one is worth the bother. See Ck-In and Comments.

Persistent CQ’s caused numerous doubles that aren’t reflected in the log after we edit out background noise. We can’t always tell gibberish generated by doubles from ordinary background noise, so many doubles caused by CQ’s are missing from the clean log. Still, the Log reflects most of the interference during ck-in.

We suppose this came from a station running 100w, or more, with a poor antenna. The QRM signal was over S-9 in SW/OR. The entire net copied it well )-: After Tom checked in, the QRM station called him directly, so we know he copied some stations. He acknowledged Gene once too, then continued calling CQ. It seemed like an automated station run amuck or an inattentive Op watching Wheel of Fortune. Jaye KE6SLS checked our signal on an Idaho SDR. Our signal there was solid.

Again tonight we had a station check in Active and fail to answer NCS in the NBEMS Exercise. All incoming stations should learn the NBEMS Exercises as QNX check-ins. The Exercises are most easily learned while working them silently as a Monitor. Then, there’s no pressure to track net-flow. They can focus exclusively on learning the Exercise and check their work in the after-net Monitor’s Session. Only after mastering the NBEMS Exercise should new stations ck-in Active. When you move from working silently to participating, you need to budget some attention specifically for net-flow. When participating on-air and you’re not finished when NCS calls, send QRU (no traffic) and send your results after-net in the Monitor’s Session.

NBEMS Exercises are another good reason to read tonight’s Net Log. Check Lamar AE6LJ’s suggestion for learning NBEMS Exercises. He outlines an excellent strategy for learning them quickly. If you’re new to ORCA NBEMS Exercises, read his suggestion twice. His strategy is fast and efficient. Also in the Comment Round, see how Jaye KE6SLS used an on-line Idaho SDR station to check NCS’s signal near the QRM station. Jaye uses SDR station for many on-air diagnostic purposes. Lamar and Jaye are just two of numerous ORCA Ops with extensive radio credentials. We’re really fortunate to have so many competent digital Ops onboard. Paying close attention to these colleagues will increase your radio knowledge and skills.

We’ll continue our Macro experiments the 1st Tuesday in October. Meantime, you can work with ORCA colleagues to explore the special-purpose categories, Inline Macro Tags and Delayed Execution Tags. These two categories contain only a few Tags. They work the same as their standard counterpart except for timing, ie: <!GOHOME> & <@GOHOME> work the same as <GOHOME> except: <!GOHOME> is executed when the Tag occurs in Macro text instead of when the Macro Parser usually executes it. <@GOHOME> executes after <RX> executes. These special purpose Tags extend programming options.

Thanks for your usual orderly ck-in; it made the difference between being derailed by persistent interference and remaining focused to complete an accurate Roster. Training and practice pays big dividends. The utility of our Ck-In Protocol was on display tonight. If we exchanged more information w/each Ck-In, the interference would have been even more disruptive. Our Ck-In Protocol specifies only what’s needed, saving time, energy, and bandwidth. Tonight, it earned a Gold Star.

Thanks for practicing with us regularly. We enjoy working w/you and hope to see you again next Tuesday evening.

ANNOUNCEMENTS

Tonight we have an Advanced NBEMS Exercise w/Traffic Round. We’ll use FMMSG Form ICS-309, a form that tracks login and traffic flow.

NBEMS Exercise Notes: We send the NBEMS Exercise files three times, each in a different mode. Occasionally, good band condx and robust modes COMFIRM all Active station in one or two passes. We always transmit all three modes to support stations working silently.  Monitors are usually able to COMFIRM Exercise files, even though they’re not REPORTING. Filling Active stations usually Fills the Monitors too. Stations failing to CONFIRM the Exercise in three passes can still CONFIRM the file in our after-net Monitor’s Session. The Monitor’s Session enables QNX Ops and Lurkers to FILL or CONFIRM Exercise files and/or ask questions. The after-net session helps keep nets to a reasonable length for Active Ops.

We’ll continue our Macro experiments the 1st Tuesday in October. Meantime, you can experiment with ORCA colleagues. Explore the special-purpose categories, Inline Macro Tags and Delayed Execution Tags. These two categories contain only a few Tags. They work the same as their standard counterpart except for timing, ie: <!GOHOME> & <@GOHOME> work the same as <GOHOME> except: <!GOHOME> is executed when the Tag occurs in Macro text instead of when the Macro Parser usually executes it. <@GOHOME> executes after <RX> executes. These special purpose Tags extend programming options.

For a working example of Inline Macros, review last week’s Comment Round in Net Log 06/Sep/22. Lamar AE6LJ used <!POP> to
change MFSK-64 to MFSK-32 before <RX> executes. To change MODEM b4 <RX> is executed, <!POP> stops transmission for a second or two, changes MODEM to MFSK-32 and sends TxID, all b4 executing <RX>. Adding <! to the Macro forces the Macro Parser to ignore it’s predetermined execution order and execute the Tag where it occurs in Macro text.

Earlier this year, Dave W1HKJ added the Delayed Execution Macro, <@LOCK:on|off|t> at our request, enabling our VidID Macro to restore LOCK w/<@LOCK:on> after <RX>. This configuration automatically supports our ‘LOCK Cursor @ 1500’ net Protocol.
Note: <@LOCK:on|off|t> is not yet listed in User Manual 4.1.20.

ORCA < WB7EUX – Another great net and training opportunity. Thanks to Doug and Mindy. And also a big thank you for clarification on macros. That REALLY helps!

Living near Oregon’s largest wild land fire (Double Creek) does have its advantages. I’ve seen some really fantastic fire apparatus arriving from all over Oregon. That includes quite a few helicopters operating from Joseph State Airport, just 2 miles away.

The latest report from InciWeb (https://inciweb.nwcg.gov/) shows the Double Creek fire at over 155,000 acres and 15% contained.

All is well. 73 de WB7EUX

Wow! only 15%    long way to go…     & tu for helping with the QRM tonite   it does n’t happen often      good thing and good practice too  BK  Lamar AE6LJ, Ur next 4 Comments < K7KY

ORCA Digital Net < AE6LJ

This is meant as encouragement for any Monitoring station that has an urge to work the Advanced Exercise as an Active op, but is waiting for more experience beforehand:

Try going to http://orcadigitalnet.com and downloading a bunch of the Reports. Scroll down to the exercises and try working them as fast as you can. You can gain weeks of experience in a single sitting this way. You’ll quickly notice patterns, how you want to have your files arranged, what programs you want to have open and where, how many instances of FLMsg you want running, etc…

One major thing this can’t prepare you for is that rush you get needing to also be able to pay attention to the live flow of the net around you while you work and time pressure. For that, you can try adopting an Active op’s callsign during a live net while working the exercise in the background. See if you can be alert and ready to respond when your adopted callsign is prompted.

The most important thing is simply a prompt and proper response when called by NC. The main thing to the Basic exercise is just pushing a button when called on. In the Traffic Round, if you are not ready with the Advanced exercise when called, all you need do is send “NCS de (URCALL) QRU”. No shame in that. Lots can and will go screwy. Everyone understands. If you really feel the need to explain, you can do so in the Comment Round.

Rah! Rah! and 73.

BTNCS < AE6LJ

Thank you so much, Lamar   I couldn’t have made your points better.  We use the logs all the time    transitioning from working the Exercises as Monitor’s often misses the importance of attending to net flow so you’re alert and ready when NCS calls you.   Emergency nets don’t usually run @ this speed, but working these exercises with us regularly will have you ready for busy emergency and traffic neet      I could not have made these points better     TU   BK    KJ7VGVT, Ur next 4 Comments < K7KY

Sorry for the late relay on KS6M but I wanted to wait to see if Jaye got a response and of course when I tried as I could hear him then more interference reappeared. Anyway a week of thick smoke from a fire West of Lake Tahoe. At least cooler weather. Hope everyone is okay with the many California fires. You guys did good with all the interruptions.

I THINK many of our Utah stations are busy with their local ARC tonight.

Not sure about w7lpn.  I checked an Idaho SDR and NCS’s signal was very copyable up there :|  The station really jammed up our check-ins tonight.

Also noted another call in there: KK6RJR — couldn’t tell if he was QNX on active.  Old fumble fingers here clicked the Twin-TXid macro instead of the Vid ID macro–quickly rolled the VFO to limit damage

Had another beautiful day with marine layer (thick) giving way to abundant blue skies and light breeze.  My batteries are nicely topped off

No smoke to report here today.

Stay well and hope to see you down the wf soon!
