Oh,oh… No wonder the FLAMP exercise was confusing; we asked you to create an ICS-309 form (.309) with a Blank form file extension (.b2s). Sorry about that. When we change the exercise, a number of elements need to change in harmony. We both proofread all net text, but tonight we missed this file extension.

We’ve been preparing for a SOTA excursion and sorting issues with our KX3 2m module. About an hour before net, I was testing a suggestion from Elecraft TS and disconnected the VHF feedline from the FT-857D, the radio I use for ORCA. Somehow, I mis-connected the HF line between the radio and tuner. However I managed this, I flubbed the KX3 test too. Although we run a dummy net before the actual to be sure we and the radios are ready, I changed the coax to test the KX3 and disabled the HF radio w/o realizing it.

Thinking my problem was software/OS related, I wasted most of the TS time and only found the problem a few minutes before net-start. Good thing Mindy W7ZAP was ready and immediately took over check-in. She could have continued with the net if I’d not sorted it out. As frustrating as these glitches can be, they are also excellent learning events. We practice to replace each other every week; our practice is paying off. That said, I was a bit unsettled during the net; my typing error rate jumped a little.

We appreciate Steve K6ETA’s characterization of ORCA as ‘a Tidy net’, although I was not feeling very tidy at the moment. You too can take a bow with his comment. Mindy and I conduct the net, but credit for order and efficiency goes equally to each of you. Thanks for making ORCA engaging and useful. Practice makes perfect.

Don’t forget: the ‘OPTIONAL’ exercise within the weekly FLAMP exercise is OPTIONAL. It’s intended to broaden our experience in handling traffic. PC/OS knowledge and skills are often required for digital traffic-handling. Some of the OPTIONAL exercises take a bit more time to complete. If you are near the top of the roster, there’s not much time to complete the exercise before Traffic round begins. When you’re not finished, you can send QRU and submit the exercise next week, or send, ‘Pse come back to me at the end’. No problem for us.

We had a couple doubles tonight, probably due to band condx. It’s hard to avoid doubling when you don’t see any signals. Pre-toning is preventing avoidable doubles. No pretone is needed when responding to NCS. Pre-toning with the TUNE button is preferred over Auto Pre-Signal. Using the automatic Pre-Signal, you have no opportunity to hold TX when someone is ahead of you. You’ve warned others, but cannot withhold your own TX when you detect a signal.

Lately, the band improves enough by net-end for Rick K0KEX to check in from Smithville, MO. It’s an opportunity to learn something about VidID. We copy his VidID easily when we can’t decode his data signal. Tonight we both saw his VidID, but only Mindy could decode content. Our antennas are 90deg apart. We both saw his VidID, but I decoded about 10%. VidID prints on the WF beyond the distance where content can be decoded. If this was an emergency, we would look for a station that could work Rick and relay his traffic. And, welcome back to Anthony KG6LHW in Blue Lake,CA.

Bruce KB7VX had to take down his 80m field doublet and move to an doublet-unfriendly location. The solution was a Wolf River vertical and four ground radials. Bruce’s QRP signal was S9+10 in SW/OR.

Thanks for sticking with us during the toughest band condx this decade. Our reward for enduring these condx will be very robust and flexible digital operating skills. We hope to see you again next Tuesday evening. 73 Doug K7KY

ANNOUNCEMENTS 16/July/2019

Tonight’s FLAMP exercise distributes the file, ‘ex128.txt’, an FLDIGI/
FLAMP/FLMSG exercise. If you complete the OPTIONAL exercise within,
send that file to NCS in the Traffic round using FLAMP.

Let’s try again for an off-freq-traffic exercise next week. Another
appeal may entice two volunteers. It’s not difficult, really. It’s
similar to exchanging traffic with NCS every week. You check-in
listing traffic. In the Traffic round, NCS sends you off-freq to pass
your traffic. You pass the traffic and return to the net. That’s it.
It’s the same process you will use on Traffic and Emergency nets.

FEMA is testing communications with Amateurs this week, 1200-1300p,
Mon-Fri, 5.330.5, Phone. We didn’t copy them today.

Thanks for using the pre-sets in the Preamble to work ORCA. It saves
time and bandwidth, keeps us on mode and frequency, and significantly
reduces doubles. It contributes to an orderly and efficient net.

FLamp Training exercise in Humboldt. I conducted an on the air training exercise using FLamp and FLdigi. We used the Far West Repeater Assn repeaters for voice back and forth and our 80m digi frequency for the digital exercises. We had a lot of fun and I hope learned a lot of really neat things that make FLamp such an important RELAY tool for perfect print digital transfers of data. I presented a large amount of information for those working with me and now they are ready to start testing/training with this amazing tool–thanks for working with my guys!

Trinity County OES is conducting the first CODE RED test .. if you live in or near Trinity county you can follow the link and register your telephone number to be notified. URL: http://kymkemp.com/2019/07/10/trinity-county-oes-and-sheriffs-office-conducting-a-county-wide-alert-are-you-signed-up/

Been working on the Regional EOC Laptop for FlDigi HF station. Plan to use that station next week for a system test. OH! How I hate the microscum OS!

Replaced the Hydraulic Clutch Assembly this morning. Was questionable if I was going to get home yesterday. Need to replace the brakes next week.

Will be poviding communicatins for the Tahoe Rim Trail Endurance Run this weekend. This is a 100 mile run on the mountain tops. We be utilizing phone, packet, and fldigi comms between the aid stations.

See you Digi-Hams next week.

Wow! A RADO & WRENCH too… I don’t envy you the clutch job… BREAK next 4 Comments is Greg KG7DMI < NCS

Found I had left FLAMP on PSK500R from pervious testing. As you saw it took me a couple of tries to figure out what was going on. After the fist time I changed Fldigi mode, only to have flamp over ride it. After the second I realised to look at the Transmit tap on Flamp. Any way, I actualy confirmed ex_128.txt with the first transmission.

So you guys that sent the Flamp file as a .b2s, did you simply change the .309 to .b2s? When it openned it opened in the premade form.

Problems and all, another fun net! Thank you.

TU Doug. I uised FLmsg and then when I was done with the message, I used the SAVE AS instead of SAVE. Then I just copied and pasted NCS’s name into the name field then added my call sign. So I sort of cheated the system a bit but I also save it to my DESKTOP instead of the normal hidden folder. Makes it easier for me to locate it during a net. Later I clear off my desktop and am ready for the next exercise. Hope that helps.

I don’t understand what’s up here… I didn’t have time to check the file exetensions during the round.. I don’t see how we can save a 309 form as Blank, but I’ve not tried. BREAK Greg did this explain things 4 u?? < NCS

Yes, Sounds like Jaye saved with the diffrent extention. FLmsg knows waht the file really is. so it works. Thanks guys de KG7DMI k

Whew! What a start to the net… Doug’s stn wouldn’t RX/TX. I was hoping to not have to NCS the entire net. Fortunately Doug figured it out in the nick of time :-) A start like that throws everything off a bit. Thanks for hanging in there with us!

Band is improving as we go… Nice work Bruce on working FLAMP. Good work Jaye for leading the digital traing in Humboldt :-) Look forward to hearing how the 100 mile run comms go… safe travels Doug. Blank forms end with .b2s and 309 form ends with .309. Each form has a different suffix.

Hope to see you all on the WF again soon!

Tnx Mindy… You’ve called our beginning gently… I was stressing ! it does effect the ongoing flow of the net… Now, I’m settled down and the nets abt over BREAK any further comments? < NCS

The file extention thing:
There’s a header in the file that tells Flmsg what form or type of file it is. As long as the extention is associated with Flmsg, Flmsg will open and figure out which form the message actualy is.
