15 check-ins tonight and all on the roster before 0230z. Calling for early check-ins has made completing the roster much easier. Digital check-in pileups are harder to sort out than phone where you can usually catch enough of the doubles to recognize callsigns. Digital doubles usually print gibberish. VideoID’s also speed up check-in.

After talking with Jaye KE6SLS @ 1500, I also copied videoID’s from Howard KB6NN just below and Steve KB6HOH just above. Very helpful at a busy net time. A number of our members use videoID regularly. It’s also useful for getting my attention during the net for comments, questions, checking-out, etc.

VideoID has a slightly different sound that catches my attention when I’m working another app and not focused on FLDIGI. VideoIDs are easier to catch when they are horizontal in the large font. I usually run the net using a narrow BPF. I leave this filter off for check-in so I can see callsigns. Tonight, I forgot to reset the filter after check-in. This degrades my s/n ratio. Not good on a crummy band night.

We made a number of NCS mistakes tonight too. Wide open BPF, antenna switching error, REPORT prompts out of order, etc. Still, the net ran rather smoothly. A testament to the skill, focus, and attention of our membership.

The antenna error eliminated the weekly FLAMP exercise that contained the Template exercise instructions. We’ll continue with that exercise next week. Actually, these unanticipated events are good practice. I’m more comfortable with things going astray than I was a couple years ago.

When I resent the Template file prior to the weekly exercise, I discovered the band was worse than I thought and MFSK-32 didn’t cut it. We filled all stations with MFSK-16. Although MFSK-16 is slow, it’s also robust. After the net, Doug KA7FOO and I completed his FLAMP file, again using MFSK-16 to fill the final missing blocks.

No wonder copy was difficult in UT tonight.  Check out the test image Gene W1EEP received:

RX: W1EEP UT

Welcome back to Linda KG6PBX in Cedar City,UT, and first time check-in Harold K7EV in Lilliwaup,WA. Harold was having a strange anomaly; his print was very unusual. The beginning and end of each TX look normal for about 20 or so characters, but then each character was spaced out with little squares. So much space between characters it was hard to tell what was said. I’m curious to learn the cause.

Thanks for flowing thru the glitches and retaining your focus. We enjoy working with you and look forward to next Tuesday evening. 73 Doug K7KY

KE6SLS < K7KY RR Jaye ur in&out tonight GL with RAIN & no sp processer i think u mean and it doesn’t work with the dig modes on the ft 857d signal looking poor? btu < K7KY

I heard a vid ID as you xmitted, so that one will need to re send vid id.

Interesting, my signallink was OFF, and I seen a second signal up at 1500Hz on wf, then I turned on signalink, that goes away. That is what I seen and thought maybe something over modulated, but it is just an odd thing with signalink! Great signal Doug.

okay, back to the RAIN.

K6ETA RR Steve etal sorry about that… the instructions were in the FLAmP exercise that we cancelled when we ran into antenna crossup troubles… I thought we had the exercise sorted out so it wouldn’t be too confusing, but the ant issue messed us up… the exercise is simply to save the template in the template directory of your HD and use the template in ICS-213 it will be much easier and not confusing when the template is in place and u can call it easily from the Template menu on the ICS-213 form… we can do it next week now that u hv the template u hv a week to install it (-: BREAK N7SND Larry ur turn for traffic if u have any < K7KY

K7KY and the net de WA7HHE, band condx really down tonight here, was really impressed with the solid print of MFSK 16, attempted to use it for my FLMSG but found message was too long for the mode and forgot to turn on my Tx ID so that tripped me up also. Noticed my TxID came on when i REPORTED via FLAMP. Will revisit Config optioning.

With all the problems, net was a good learning experience on this end. Thanks Doug and Mindy for the opertunity.

73’s to all WA7HHE

WA7HHE I like ur thiniing Brad even the mistakes and errors can be instructiive things can go much worse in the middle of the night in an emergency so I think these strange nets are good for us… I feel a bit of frustration when things wind out the window on me… BREAK I’m going to send the updated roster before we call Bill

QOGBDoug you have had a difficult night band conditions not great plus antenna troubles, but you always come through.

Thanks for all you do. Have a good evening to all.

de k6qog

K6QOG Thanks for that, Bill I wasn’t feeling like I was coming thru for a few minutes… we had quite a bit of blank air time there for a bit.. thanks for working with us so patiently.. BREAK KA7FOO Doug ur turn for comments.. < K7KY

I had a system crash just as net was turned

over to Mindy. No copy on messa`

Band has taken a big dip … but it turned out

being a “bad antenna”!

Sorry for Traffic being to big, never know what

the band will do … it did tonight!

It is the “Leave it to (KA7FOO) Doug” show.

Good net though. I got the template to load.

Ready for next week!

The MFSK16 seemed to do the job tonight although

I had the message by that time. I have seen MFSK

do some amazing stuff.

KA7FOO

KA7FOO Tnx Doug yes MFSK-16 is solid and robust, but not too fast.. anyway, we’ve come thru a tough up&down band and still kicking.. I’m not going to ask Harold K7EV to comment tonight… I’m not certain what’s up with his tx the letters are space out by little faded squares.. I’m wondering if it’s a Mac issue… we can look at it again after net when we fill KA7FOO’s file… Next we go to Mindy W7ZAP < K7KY

ORCA welcomes K7EV Harold and a welcome back to KG7PBX Linda. Darn! Messed up when I switched to Doug’s antenna. Sorry for the confusion in the FLAMP round. I was curious to see how the UT stations would copy THOR22 compared to MFSK16. Another day. Looks like our net’s got gremlins tonight! LOL! Appreciate working with you all.

TU Mindy seems like a third of the net is from Digital City,UT tonight… thanks for the support… Cedar City has a corner on excellent digital Ops are there any more comments for the net? < K7KY

following close, I’ll ask Doug KA6FOO to fill his file and we’ll see if we can understand K7EV’s issue…

This concludes the ORCA DIGITAL NET
