The net went very smoothly again tonight. I think our net protocols are sorting out well. We can think about experimenting with other features and modes. Mindy & I still haven’t got flamp working consistently. Sometimes it works perfectly; other times it doesn’t seem to hear the transmission. There aren’t very many parameters to alter in flamp. I thought it was band conditions, but it sometimes fails to work between our stations where band conditions are mostly irrelevant.

We’re doing very well with roundtable traffic. I don’t think I was clear tonight when changing from prompting stations to letting each station simply follow the previous station until we complete the circuit. We’ll continue with this method for awhile to see if it’s best or can be improved or dropped. After Announcements/comments/questions, I’ll prompt the first station and the other station will follow in rotation until it comes back to me. You can pause a few seconds for late check-ins, and then follow the previous station with your traffic.

Having little or no comments or questions following traffic may mean we’re doing so well we don’t need to say anything. Or, it may be that the digital-only format has left those who enjoy the voice roundtable uncomfortable with digi-only comms. I like digital comms, but certainly agree that voice is better and faster for sorting out complex issues, or just expressing yourself quickly and concisely. I’m open to concluding the net with voice final comments if you prefer. Let me know. I really enjoy working with each of you and wouldn’t want to change the net in any way that diminishes our relationships.

Because our net begins late, I try to keep it moving so we don’t go too deep into everyone’s evening. But, I wouldn’t want the net to get so efficient, that it’s no longer fun and useful. I would appreciate your thoughts on these matters and anything else that interests or concerns you regarding our activities and direction.

Just after closing, I received this transmission: TO THE NET CONTROL ON THIS FREQUENCY YOU ARE WIPING OUT OUR NETS AT 20:00 HOURS AT 3900 mhZ ,,, kg7za sORRY 3599 mhz

I was speaking with Bob KA6ULG on 2m when the message came in and Mindy responded, but no answer. It’s a bit surprising that we’re bothering them @ 3599. We’ve been here nearly 1.5yr now w/o bothering anyone except occasional RTTY contesters.

I’m trying to contact KG7ZA, but haven’t found phone or email yet. Maybe it’s just weird band conditions tonight. I hope we won’t have frequency conflict issues.

Thanks for working with us again tonight. I really enjoy the net and appreciate your participation. If you know Ops who’ve left us because of annoying messages, please tell them to give us another shot. Our focus is digital traffic and digital communications in general. Your participation is a big part of learning and expanding digital operating skills. 73 Doug K7KY NCS

ALL ORCA de K7KY Late check in come now…< K7KY k ORCA DIGITAL NET, Announcements, 17/Mar/15 Last week, taking early check-ins worked well. I had four stations logged when we began actual check-in. It's quick & easy to log stations off the waterfall. The net went very smoothly considering our recent return to a single freq. Try to make time this weekend to decode one of the VOA RadioGram broadcasts. Kim Elliot, RadioGram producer, emailed me to learn how to print VOA on the WF and said to watch for a mention of the ORCA DIGITAL NET in an upcoming RadioGram. It's been very interesting to work with Dave W1HKJ @ fldigi and Kim KD9XB @ Voice of America. Their interest in ORCA is an endorsement of our efforts and progress. Remember to add station information to the ICS-213 header. It helps receiving stations evaluate the band and your signal. Jaye KE6SLS suggests we run the traffic round w/o NCS prompting. Jim KW6JIM suggested this last year. It was faster, but we had lots of out-of-order doubles. Now, we are more experienced. Let's try it again. Following Announcements and comments, I'll prompt the first traffic station and each station can follow in order. Then, a regular round, or more, of kbd . Comments/Questions, come now with your callsign. Otherwise, I'll call the first traffic station. de K7KY WA6NBG Please send now de K7KY k Before RSID: <<2015-03-18T02:45Z MFSK-32 @ 1500>>
