Tonight some of us had excellent copy and some had poor to none from some locations. The band is improving with spring, but is still up and down most evenings. Eureka,CA and Los Angeles,CA were not copying each other. But both copied the more remote stations well. Howard KB6NN must have found the fault in his antenna; his signal was much improved and easily copied here in SW/OR. Did you notice Howard’s 73 on the WF at the end? He’s taken the wfID to a new level. He’ll be a good consultant if you’re learning to use wfID. See the website macro page for a basic primer on the wfID.

We had two FLAMP messages tonight and Ken K7IFG sent bulletins in FLAMP prior to the net. FLAMP is a key app for formal and emergency traffic. We are becoming more proficient with FLAMP. Now, we use the RELAY feature to send fill blocks from a station more likely to be copied by those needing fills. Brad WA7HHE sent an FLAMP message in MFSK-64. It was CONFIRMED by three stations. Others need fills or missed it entirely. The fills were relayed by Mindy W7ZAP also in MFSK-64 and more station CONFIRMED. We only do one fill round for FLAMP traffic. For practice, it’s not important to complete each message during net. The nets are long enough already. Ops wanting to complete a message may do so after net. Mindy filled Brad’s message for Jaye KE6SLS following the net.

Looking for late and visiting stations is working better now. Ralph WB6SDR checked in from Folsom,CA near the end. He’s running the fldigi suite on a Raspberry Pi 2.  Very interesting. I’ve been thinking of building a lightweight digital field station with Raspberry Pi 3. Welcome back, Ralph. From Rick N6IET we learned that Steve K6WSJ in Venice,CA is recovering from surgery on both hands. He’ll be off digital and CW for awhile. We wish him a speedy recovery.

Early check-in is working better for me now. I try to start looking for earlies around 1915. When Ken runs bulletins on 3.5825+1500, I take earlies a little higher. Finding NCS prior to net is good practice for the members. Practicing frequency agility is good for me too. The net is always where you find NCS. It’s a big plus for me to check-in some stations early.

Thanks for working with us tonight. I hope to see you again next Tuesday evening. 73 Doug K7KY

Welcome to the ORCA DIGITAL NET – Doug K7KY/NCS

ORCA meets every Tuesday @ 1930p – 3.5825+1500

Software: FLDIGI, FLMSG, FLAMP – MFSK-32

ORCA is a DIRECTED net, dedicated to learning and developing

digital operating skills and practicing digital traffic handling.

The net connects digital Amateur Operators with common interest

in training, information-sharing, and mutual-aid. Visitors welcome.

New to ORCA? See the ‘Quick Start Guide’ @ http://orcadigitalnet.com

FLMSG/FLAMP & KEYBOARD stations check-in with your CALLSIGN

or print it on the waterfall. First time?: Include NAME & QTH.

Monitoring stations may check in&out with: ‘CALLSIGN IN&OUT’.

Monitors are not called during net.

After check-in, stand-by while NCS generates the rotation list.

Next:

NCS transmits test image

NCS transmits Rotation list

NCS transmits Announcements

NCS calls each station in order for traffic or keyboard *

Next, a round of copy reports, observations, and comments

(keyboard or BLANKFORM as you like)

Closing Announcement

* LOCK fldigi @ 1500, enable RxID, TxID.

Enable: CONFIGURE/ID/RsID ‘Retain tx freq lock’

Have FLAMP open. FLAMP traffic is followed with

a round of FLAMP REPORTs and one fill. < K7KY

Announcements 17/May/16

Read the Net Report/Log @: http://orcadigitalnet.com/reports/

Net Reports are posted to the website, usually by Wednesday.

We plan to split the net after announcments when check-ins with traffic

reach 12-15. Jaye KE6SLS, our alternate NCS, will take half the Ops to

another freq for the traffic and comment rounds. Both nets will close

independently. The log for the split section will be appended to the regular log. We can give this plan a try next time we have a large

check-in.

:mg:641 From ARRL website posted 04/20/2016

What you see on the news is only the tip of the iceberg of what really happened as a result of the devastating April 16 earthquake in

Ecuador, Michigan physician Rick Dorsch, NE8Z/HC1MD, told ARRL.

Since the 7.8 magnitude quake hit while most people were at home finishing dinner, “thousands of people” remain buried in the rubble

of collapsed buildings, although some have been found alive. Dorsch and his wife Maria, HC1MM, also a physician, have been helping

to handle health-and-welfare traffic via EchoLink, which is connected to the Ecuadorean interlaced national 2 meter repeater network.

Yes, I’m skipping right over Eureka (or they’re skipping over me).

Doug, you’ve averaging about -3dB s/n and have come up to almost 100% print after starting out at 30%.

Wendy, you’re peaking at 8dB and 100% print. 110 feet high? Are you kidding!? Well, it shows. You now have a great

signal – the strongest on the net this evening by far! Congratulations!

Brad comes in at 2nd place averaging 0dB and 100% print.

Then came Ralph, also at -5 to 0dB and 100% print.

I’m still using the old MacBook. I had to return the Lenovo Win10 notebook.

Now waiting for a refurbished Lenovo Think Pad with Win7.

That’s it from Los Angeles!

Oops! Listed incorrect power setting on my message, TX is 35W. Background noise for me is S7-8. I was able to copy all easily

tonight. Looking forward to summer propagation.

Doug and I have been working on my antenna and raised it from 85 feet to 110 feet. Did some signal tests with Jaye KE6SLS and

am very pleased with the results. Plan to rebuild the ant soon. Love our Fir trees :-) After seeing the sig reports, I think NCS may

want to use the new ant. Good idea.

Great net, nice to see everyone tonight.
