Although DST and longer nights have improved 80m condx lately, we’re entering the annual period of reduced short-skip. We started with good copy on all stations, but near-by stations to our South soon began to fade. This was first evident in the NBEMS Exercise. Tom WB7EUX in Joseph,OR & Brad WA7HHE in Cedar City,UT CONFIRMED OFDM-750F in the 1st pass. Of the 9 NBEMS Exercise stations:

2 CONFIRMED OFDM-750F 1st pass
0 CONFIRMED OFDM-500F, 4 stations Filled to missing only 1 block
7 CONFIRMED MFSK-32, Filled all missing blocks

OFDM shines in favorable band condx. Although path between stations is generally stable, it varies with band condx. Over time, we can anticipate general path performance for individual stations. Although we have general knowledge, it’s tempered by current band condx.

A useful takeaway from tonight’s Exercise is the efficiency of a generic Text Editor over FLMSG Forms for some Plain Text files. Tonight, the FLMSG Form files required twice the TX time and file size as a Text Editor. This can be important when time is critical and we want to distribute files (.txt) that any PC can open. FLMSG does generate Plain Text files, but it’s not a straightforward process and they must be renamed after Saving. Generic Text Editors are faster and easier. Learning to use both Editors increases our traffic-handling capabilities.

Thanks for your patience and perseverance with Macro experiments. Dave W1HKJ developed a deep menu of Macro Commands (Tags). The more familiar we are with Macro Tags and configurations, the more applications we’ll find for Macros.

There were no Comment Round follow-ups or questions tonight. We expected some response to Lamar AE6LJ’s thoughts on TX-power conservation.

‘Want to say that I have lived off-grid for thirty + years now and am not at all concerned about the difference in power consumption between running 50, 25 or 10 Watts at my station. Also, I never take those early net check-ins for being on alternative power; the insinuation being that one must be handicapped and weak because they are not at the mercy of some giant utility company. Ignorant assumption and not helpful in promoting alternatives, IMO.’

Hats-Off to Lamar for 30+ years off-Grid. That’s commendable. Very few Americans live totally off-grid today. It’s not a walk-in-the-park. Although we have alternatives, we heat water and cook with commercial power. There are numerous reasons for Amateurs to minimize TX power beyond conserving stored energy; no need to list them, we know them well. Nets that ck-in battery powered stations first may encourage Ops without battery back-up to harden their stations. There’s no stigma for using this ck-in option. Ignorance isn’t a failing. Ignorance is simply not knowing. We’re all ignorant about stuff until we aren’t. Using minimum power for solid contact is a legacy Amateur convention with numerous benefits.

This Winter, we’ll explore tactics for reducing TX power intelligently. Our 1st priority is passing traffic quickly and correctly. If it requires all the power we have, that’s what we use. Note that a few stations sent pixel perfect images tonight at 1/3 their usual TX power.

Thanks for managing TxID consciously during nets. TxID is required when you change mode, and unhelpful otherwise. A review of Net Log/Ck-In, shows how smoothly ck-in goes by following simple Protocols. We probably have the simplest digital net Ck-In Protocol around. Our nets run efficiently; they’re a useful model for Ops just entering digital networking. Thanks for your part in making ORCA a useful example.

ANNOUNCEMENTS

Tonight’s NBEMS Exercise creates a plain-text file in FLMSG or ordinary Text Editor like Notepad. Pay particular attention to file-name convention. On a busy emergency net that stores messages to be forwarded, we want to find them quickly. Our file-name convention organizes file for quick retrieval.

Tonight, we’ll experiment with Macros in the Comment Round. Our focus is altering Macros on-the-fly for one-time use. We’ll temporarily alter the Path Evaluation Macro for immediate use w/o Saving. It’s occasionally expedient to alter a Macro quickly. We do this by Editing, clicking ‘APPLY’, but NOT SAVING. Macro experiments are Optional. Comment as usual if you prefer.

We’ll use Path Evaluation Macro V2 to evaluate path/signal, AND send Comments tonight. You’ll alter the Path Evaluation Macro V2 in two ways:

1) Add two values to the text string, ‘ORCA < <MYCALL>’. These values are your usual power setting for ORCA and a lower value(half or less) chosen for this Comment Round, ie: ‘ORCA < <MYCALL> 35/15w’.

2) Between the Text and Tag lines(2 line Macro), add your Comments for the evening. There are two ways to do this. You can leave the Macro Editor open and add Comments as the net unfolds. Or, compile Comments in a Text Editor or FLMSG Blank-form and Copy/Paste them into the Macro as in the Example below.  Then click APPLY; DO NOT SAVE. Your revisions are available until you Close FLDGI or Load another Macro file.

Example:
ORCA  < <MYCALL>40/20w<IMAGE:G,E:\FL_APPS\fldigi.files\images\0RCAtest.png>

All CONFIRMED    nice work all….  OFDM – 700F confirmed 2 Ops and 500 got 4 Ops within 1 Block        OFDM is hard to figure out   to send these modes I hv to turn up the power     I do this with TX on the Signalink     max output for 700 is 30w and 500 28w w/o me opening the menu and boosting digital drive.    I thought the band would support OFDM tonight and it did pretty well    BK

GE all.
W7ZAP makes taking check-ins look too easy. Trust me, it ain’t. Her call sign suffix is very fitting.

Want to say that I have lived off-grid for thirty + years now and am not at all concerned about the difference in power consumption between running 50, 25 or 10 Watts at my station. Also, I never take those early net check-ins for being on alternative power; the insinuation being  that one must be handicapped and weak because they are not at the mercy of some giant utility company. Ignorant assumption and not helpful in promoting alternatives, IMO. No copy at Check-in tonight on W7WSV or KS6M. Got everyone else, for the most part, including 100% on W7SJYM in Casper.

I fought hard to keep cursor @ 1500 wf during OFDM sends in Ex round. Only seemed to make it worse.

This Thursday, on the Western Digital Net, I plan to host an informal check in and rag chew net in instead of our normal traffic net. Net will run from 7pm to 8pm Pacicif (0300-0400GMT).  Fire up your radios and check in and give us a turkey & fixin’s report!  Hope to see you Thursday!

If I don’t see you on Thursday, I’m wishing you and family a great thanksgiving!
I had to use a Utah station to check in with NCS on the Mendo/Sonoma net tonight.  Even though NCS is only 250 miles south, we can not hear each other on 75 meters!  Wintertime conditions are VERY MUCH here. My signal report notes Mindy at 18db (at beginning of net) and now down to -2db at 7:30.

I just changed my filter here, we seem to have some rather wide banded neighbors at 3.583.  VARac???
Probably a stupid question, but following the instructions from this weeks posted net report, “Between the Text and Tag lines,”  where I don’t have any idea what tag lines are.  But I’ve tested my macro I will use tonight with good results.  My comments first followed by image.  I used the COMMENT macro inside my TEST IMAGE macro so it will be a one click wonder Tonight’s exercise really shows how much more effecient a TXT file is to send verses a FLM file.  FLM more than twice the size and twice the time to send.

Stay well, practice often, and make sure to have some fun doing it!

ORCA NCS< W6DLW, Doug/Mindy, as always thanks for being here each week. This was a great exercise on doing Macros on the fly. I still have much more to learn about macros but the more I get into it becomes a challege. Not much happening here this past week but we are expecting three new Storms starting next Monday or Tuesday that could bring new rain and snow to the area. It’s great to see everyone on the waterfall.  Happy Thanksgiving. Thats’s all for now.  Everyone stay safe. 73.  <<W6DLW>

I have been monitoring the net although it is pretty weak here. Most signal  -5 to -10 dB or lower. Many stations don’t show in the waterfall, though some of their text comes through.
