This was an unusual session. ORCA DIGITAL NET Welcomes four new stations tonight: Fred K6FVC in Jerome,ID, Rick W7LPN in Weiser,ID, Ian N0IMH in Castle Rock,CO, and Larry W7XE in Gresham,OR. Ian is our first and only Colorado station. Four new stations in one session is another ORCA record. 25 Ops on tonight’s Roster is a small up-tick from Summer sessions. Fall and Winter propagation should enable our Eastern members to return.

The first Tuesday in October will be our last Basic NBEMS Exercise session. The after-net Monitor’s Session has eliminated the need for Basic Exercises. Now, incoming Ops learn NBEMS Exercises while Monitoring (QNX), working the Exercises silently and checking their work in the Monitor’s Session. This is working out very well. We’ve eliminated time pressure while learning the routines. That said, incoming Ops still have a learning hurdle when they ck-in Active to work NBEMS Exercises.

The challenge for new Ops working NBEMS Exercises on-air is FOCUS. The Exercises are brisk, simulating a busy Traffic or Emergency net. It takes a few sessions to learn to divide your attention between Exercise tasks and net operations. You need to dedicate a portion of attention to NCS so you’re prepared to respond when called. Otherwise, you’ll be focused totally on the Exercise and miss NCS calling you. NCS may be calling for your REPORT or asking you to Relay. Keep this in mind when you transition from Monitoring to Active participation. That said, don’t be overly concerned about errors. It’s a training net; we all make mistake while learning.

Tonight, ORCA and the NBEMS Exercise ran like a Swiss watch. We CONFIRMED 8 stations w/o a glitch. The exception was an error Doug K7KY made while preparing the Exercise. He forgot to Save the Exercise Macro before switching to another Macro set, so he ended up with last sessions Modes. No matter, the Exercise ran smoothly w/last week’s Modes. We always look for opportunities for Relay during these Exercises. We’ve had days when Relays were essential. You don’t need the file CONFIRMED to Relay the blocks you have. NCS may ask you to Relay specific blocks or the whole file. Tonight, we asked Jack WA6CR to Relay the whole file in MFSK-32. He had no heads-up for FLAMP Relays and accomplished it perfectly. Our apology to Jack for the no-warning request.

Jack CONFIRMED the 1st Exercise pass in PSK63RC4, so we knew he was decoding well. His Relay in MFSK-32 CONFIRMED the four remaining stations. Jack had enough spare attention to change his Relay transmission from ‘ORCA/NCS < WA6CR’ when he was sending to NCS, to ‘Ex275 DE WA6CR’ when sending to the net. Hats-Off for Jack tonight! Nets like tonight are inspiring. Everyone was on their game and the results are impressive. We get a lot of practice in an hour or so.

Speaking of net time, Lamar AE6LJ and Jaye KE6SLS demonstrated another time-saving tactic for the Traffic & Comment Rounds. They sent their Exercise files in MFSK-64 w/TxID. We CONFIRMED their Reports in MFSK-64 before resetting net-mode to MFSK-32. This is an excellent tactic; it requires additional focus. You have to be a few moments ahead of net-flow and chose a faster mode you think your path will support. Along with choosing the mode, you need to activate TxID and turn it off when you’re finished. With a little practice, it will become an automatic tactic in muscle memory. Changing modes quickly and managing TxID is a useful digital skill, well worth practicing.

Western Digital Net still needs a couple alternate NCS. Don KJ7VGV has developed his own set of Macros for running the net and an efficient ck-in routine for compiling the Roster. He’s willing to help you come up to speed quickly. If you have a reasonable signal and a little spare time, Steve K6ETA, WDN’s developer and primary NCS, will appreciate your assistance. WDN isn’t difficult to run; it’s an opportunity to expand your digital networking skills amongst supportive colleagues. Currently, Don KJ7VGV and Jaye KE6SLS are assisting Steve as alternate Net Controls. Two more alternates will be ideal.

ANNOUNCEMENTS

Tonight we have an Advanced NBEMS Exercise w/Traffic Round. We’ll use FMMSG Form ICS-213.

NBEMS Exercise Notes: The 1st Tuesday in October will be our last Basic Exercise. The after-net Monitor’s Session has eclipsed the need for Basic Exercises. Now, incoming Ops learn the NBEMS Exercises silently while Monitoring, and checking their work in the Monitor’s Session. Bruno KG7VVN will conduct the last Basic Exercise. Bruno and Don Kj7VGV will continue conducting 1st Tuesday NBEMS Exercises. After 04/Oct/22, all ORCA NBEMS Exercises will be Advanced format Exercises. Our NBEMS Exercise file-name convention remains the same.

Macro Experiment sessions will be later in the month. We’ll announce them with sufficient time to prepare. Humboldt ARC meets on 1st Tuesdays and Rainbows Canyon ARC meet on 2nd Tuesdays; to accommodate those ARCs, we’ll schedule Macro Experiments for the 3rd, 4th, or 5th Tuesday.

Next week, we’ll do something different with the Path Evaluation Macro. After Ck-In and b4 the Postamble, we’ll ask one station to send our Test image w/the Path Evaluation Macro. Net Control will not send Test images that session. You’ll email the images for publication as usual. We’ll begin learning how well the net copies a single station. It will help select the best station for Relay. We’ll begin with Bruno KG7VVN and Don KJ7VGV who are already capable of conducting NBEMS Exercises. Learning the paths between net stations will help choose Relays w/o trial & error. We won’t use the Path Macro in the Comment Round.

There were positive aspects to the QRM during last week’s Ck-In. We sailed right along despite the interference. We’ve been working in marginal to poor band condx for months now and we’ve not missed one session. The digital modes really shine when band condx tank. Poor propagation results in more Relay practice. Both ORCA and WDN operate smoothly in tough condx thanks to experienced digital Ops. We surmounted strong interference with aplomb. ORCA Ck-In has been orderly for years. Everyone knows the protocol; we have very few doubles or coattails. Regular practice pays big dividends.

Another take-away from last week’s Ck-In is TX power. Part of preparing for emergency work is cultivating a minimum TX power habit. It’s easy to just leave the dial @ 50-100w in tough band condx, but we may find ourselves working extended events where conserving stored energy is vital to sustaining operations. Then, we must quickly determine our minimums. We can practice finding minimum power setting during QSOs with colleagues. In emergencies, we’ll want to do this quickly. Conserving energy and brief/concise messaging are key tactics for staying on the air in emergencies.

An Advanced NBEMS Exercise is next < K7KY

This Advanced NBEMS Exercise begins in PSK63RC4 (220wpm,330bw,80%,FEC).
We’ll fill with PSK250R (220wpm,250hz,80%,FEC), & MFSK-32 (630hz,120wpm,FEC).

A couple notes from tonite’s Exercise you note that Lamar AE6LJ and Jaye KE6SLS sent Reports in a faster mode. You all can do this when u have adequate path to NCS I’ll ACK your REPORT in that mode b4 returning the net to MFSK-32 and some Ops also increased their block size. When you have path, this saves net time. Normally, I’ll return the net to MFSK-32 as I forgot on this TX )=: < K7KY

Fires continue to plague our northeast Oregon community. However, some rain, lower temperatures, and a continuing effort by wildland fire fighters from all over the state has resulted in drg ptiu nhWtut{tnhâree major fires. The Wallowa County Sheriff has rescinded all evacuation orders previously applied. Smoke is still a nuisance.

Lamar AE6LJ, Ur next 4 Comments < K7KY

ORCA Digital Net < AE6LJ

I’m really impressed w/our man Jack, WA6CR, there being on his toes for that sneaky relay request. Nice to see so many new ck-ins this eve, too.

Back a year or so ago when I was going over old Reports on the ORCA website I came across a comment by an op whose call sign I failed to note, and who I don’t think still regularly checks in, but whose method of arranging the viewers in FLDigi I immediately adopted and still use now. He mentioned how he stretched the white, PSK/CW/RTTY signal browser panel on the left side out to about mid-screen to give him a sort of desk top to work the exercises on while keeping the all important, yellow Receive pane unobstructed.

While I would like to think I would have come up with this technique eventually on my own, I’m glad to have gotten the tip sooner rather than later. So, a big THANK YOU to whoever that op was.

Raining wonderfully here at my QTH after a nice, cool, sunny day. Perfect!

GE and 73 to all BTNCS < AE6LJ

FB Lamar I’m always delighted to learn that some one is making use of the old Reports and Logs Your comments last session abt using the logs was right on and there’s a point in there I need you to clarirfy for me later BK

I thought I saw a faint tune with relay but no go for me. Rain past couple of days has been a relief from the smoke not to mention cooler weather and needed water. I think band conditions dictate different modem changes. Thx for all your hard work Mindy and Doug.

Looking forward to see how much ham-tivity will happen before & after the Great California Shake Out. We are actively working to develop a intra-county add-on, adding three counties.

Wow, really great signals tonight and hardly any lightning crashes for a change.

Larry W7XE performed a perfect first time check-in. Good work Larry!

WA6CR I think moved the RELAY FLA to TX window as I see it as a distinct msg ID on FLA RX tab. Good work all the same!

Where is Brad portable tonight? Inquiring minds wanna know :)

It is a shame that FLA compresses these pure text FLM files. “271 bytes ke6sls_ex275.213” reported by files system & “620 bytes” sent with FLA.

Good call on faster mode Lamar. You read my mind :)

Two days of partly sunny skies, warm & muggy temps and no smoke. Might see more sun coming days. We received 1/2″ of long awaited RAIN!

The bands have been absolutely hopping lately. Enjoyed some good DX on both 10m & 15m.

Stay well and hope to see you down the wf soon!

GE to all on the ORCA net, I have a reception problem due to a sweeping signal across the WF and can not copy anything when its at 1500.

Am currenty at a Natures Therapy retreat, fun hobby called can you hear me now? Sure you all know all about it.
Portable QTH is located at an elevation of 9700 ft. Overlooking beautiful Navajo Lake. Great cups of morning coffee and eyeballing my cool ORCA coffee mug :)

Rat Terrier looking for Rats in the Gopher holes, fortunately has not found any.

Heaven is brilliant at this elevation. Watching the weather as projected thunderstorms today and tomorrow.
