Band condx were OK tonight, but not good enough to support MFSK-64. Mindy W7ZAP conducted the weekly FLAMP exercise in MFSK-64. Three stations did not complete the file and we easily filled the missing blocks with MFSK-32. This file, ‘ex2.txt’ is the Edit/Rename/Save exercise for next week. Please use this file for next week’s Traffic round. Eventually, we will complete this exercise in one evening. Once you’ve done it a couple times, you will be ready to edit and resend quickly.

Last week, half of our 10 check-ins were in UT. Tonight, only Gene W1EEP represented UT, the others were off to ARC meetings. Good thing we don’t all meet on the same Tues.

Remember, we are a directed net. Comments and questions are always welcome. Print your ID on the WF or send it in a lull to get NCS attention. During FLAMP REPORT round, NCS prompts you for a REPORT by sending your callsign. Wait for that prompt to avoid doubling and repetition. Our FLAMP exercises are working well in the roundtable setting. FLAMP fills and REPORTS are much simpler when you are passing traffic to one station only.

Don’t forget to try 40/80m daytime with us on Saturday 17 September, 1300p, 7.122/3.581 +1500, MFSK-32. If you don’t copy us on 40m, we’ll be down to 80m in a few minutes. Net will be brief.

I must have jinxed myself when talking with Jaye KE6SLS about multitasking. Oblivious of my net outline, I jumped to net-close after the Traffic round, forgetting the Comment round. Everyone else certainly noticed though; the WF lit up with quadruples immediately. Oops! Thanks for your patience. The waterfall was jammed with signals and gibberish for a moment, then Don WA6NBG’s report emerged from the noise. He would be the first station called for Comments and he moved right along with business as usual. Tu, Don.

Thanks for participating tonight. Your involvement contributes to our overall experience of learning and practice. I hope to see you all again next week. 73 Doug K7KY NCS

Howdy… When next you catch up to Don, would you ask him to shoot me an email, please? I have tried writing him to no avail, so it is probably to an obsolete email address. I am still needing to connect with him to reclaim a 4 element 2 Meter beam that I need to put into service down here. Thanks!

Good, looks like that was a good paste.

I am still without working laptop here. Glad this is a stand alone machine

I use here in my ham shack for nmormal HAM RADIO stuff. So it’s not affected.

but hope to get started with new SSD on my laptop tomorrow night. God willin’

:mg:1067 Juno is a NASA space probe orbiting the planet Jupiter after entering orbit on July 5, 2016, the prelude to 20 months of scientific data collection to be followed by a planned deorbit.

It was launched from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station on August 5, 2011, as part of the New Frontiers program.

Communications are via the 70-metre (230 ft) antennae of the NASA Deep Space Network (DSN) utilizing an X band (7.153 GHz Rx 8.404 GHz Tx) direct link.

The Right Hand Circularly Polarized high gain antenna on the spacecraft is 2.5 mm (8 feet) diameter with a gain of about 43 dB (isotropic linear).

Due to telecommunications constraints, Juno will only be able to return about 40 megabytes of camera data during each 11-day orbital period. This photography downlink average data rate of less than 337 bit/s will limit the number of images that are captured and transmitted during each orbit to somewhere between 10 and 100 depending on the compression level used.

337 bits/ sec = 4 x faster than MFSK32

= about MFSK Image mode (analog FSK 1x) (color).

KK6RKY Tnx Eric… very interesting… Sounds like a big antenna for a satellite… BREAK KB6HOH OK Steve… ur turn for traffic… < K7KY

K7KY de KB6HOH OK Doug FB but i DO HAVE A ?

have missed out on a coupole of nets.

I have the tfc from 2 weeks ago but wasnt sure what form in flmsg you wanted it or does it matter??

So BTU Doug K7KY de KB6HOH k

KB6HOH Steve are you refering to the file, callsign.txt? < K7KY

rgr rgr btu k

KB6HOH That’s the file from our first exercise in editing and resending files from a couple weeks ago… similiar to the file Mindy send at the first of tonight net… did you copy ex2.txt tonight? < K7KY

K7KY de KB6HOH OK Doug FB I do believe so. Put me at the very bottomof the list. was that a FLamp TX or just FLmsg?

So BTU Doug K7KY de KB6HOH k

KB6HOH < K7KY Steve the file Mindy sent earlier tonight, ex2.txt is the traffic for next week… you have the file from two weeks ago… you can send it now in FLAMP the exercise it about rxing a file, editing, renaming, and resending it. we’ve spread it over two weeks as it’s a new exercise and we don’t want to press everyone to do this in a few minutes… as we soon will.. it’s not really hard… After you send this old file now, I’ll only ask you for a REPORT, not the entire net… go ahead with callsign.txt in FLAMP tu < K7KY

K7KY de KB6HOH OK Doug FB standby for FLamp Tfc.

Not the best band condx for MFSK64, but good to learn what alternatives work and when. The FLAMP process has been a good opportunity for me to learn differnt ncs digital skills. Always learn something each week. It’s a gentle and brief moment in the hot seat… good for the brain cells!

Great message Erik, especially the MFSK32 comparison.

How many digital nets can you do a little cw practice on the side? I like that (especially when its not 25wpm+).

Good to see you all!

SHORTWAVE RADIOGRAM

Shortwave Radiogram transmits digital text and images on an analog shortwave broadcast transmitter. The program is produced and presented by Dr. Kim Andrew Elliott KD9XB. Shortwave Radiogram continues VOA Radiogram's tradition testing new modes and is an interesting source for Digital Ops wishing to practice more with FLDIGI & FLAMP.
