Advancing start time an hour was beneficial for most of us tonight. We still lost a couple stations, but we’re not certain of the cause. Maybe not band condx. Overall, the earlier start was a plus. Distant signals were solid and nearby stations did better than they have in the last couple months. We’ll stay with the earlier start for now and see how it goes. If condx do continue to diminish as some predict, we will need all our patience and skills to continue practicing each week.

This is the first time we’ve changed our start time and tonight is the first time anyone has worked the net by voice. Ken KR7KR checked in using his voice-controlled Ipad. He’s able to walk about the house while working the net by voice. The day may come when we’ll need a ck-in category for Op-Avatars. They may outperform our digital skills, but they’re unlikely to be as charming and engaging as our current colleagues.

Our path to Doug KA7FOO was much better tonight. Lately, the band has dropped him by the Comment round. Stations beyond Doug, to our S/E have similar fate. There were some deep fades tonight, but the band recovered before we closed. Our copy on Jaye KE6SLS, only 100m distant, was not perfect, but workable. It’s better than we’ve done with Jaye for a couple months. Signals from ID/UT ranged from 11-19db!

At last we’ve solved the squelch-turns-off mystery. Sure enough, it’s not an fldigi bug, but a configuration settings. We run the net with RxID active. With members free to change mode, we need to follow mode changes automatically. We didn’t realize that when RxID is active, squelch is opened automatically for a period determined on the configuration ID tab. When this setting is 0 (zero seconds), squelch does not open on RX and the squelch setting remains as set. We haven’t altered this setting from default until now. With the squelch turning off w/o notice, our log collects lots more noise. We edit out the noise before publishing the log.

Tonight there were two attempts to contact NCS at 1460 and 1480. I don’t usually chase signals across the waterfall. Tonight I followed the signal at 1460, but printed only gibberish. Maybe a new station; maybe someone that forgot to reset RIT. Net frequency is where you find NCS; we’re rarely off 1500. Otherwise, we didn’t wander more than a few hertz from 1500. When you’re locked at 1500, we’re good.

The net was large, ran briskly, but still took an hour fifty minutes. That exceeds our target of an hour, and no longer than an hour thirty minutes. It’s a long time to remain alert and focused, especially with long periods between activity for each Op. Please keep net time in mind when you prepare practice files and images. The files and images are secondary to our mission. Short files and small b/w images give equal practice to long ones and make more evolutions. When the band is poor, color images are better sent in Grayscale; color images sent in Grayscale may print sharper detail in half the time. In poor band condx, a brief text file is a better choice than a slow blurry image. We appreciate your assistance in helping us manage net time.

ANNOUNCEMENTS 26/February/2019

Tonight’s FLAMP exercise distributes the file, ‘ex107.txt’, an FLDIGI/FLAMP/
PC Text Editor exercise. If you complete the optional exercise, send that file
to NCS in the Traffic round tonight or any net.

30 Meter Multi Mode Weekend
When: March 16th and 17th 2019
Where: 10 MHz – 30 Meter Band (10.100 – 10.150)
30m is a special Amateur Band. Limited to 200w & CW/Data only. If you usually
find 30m devoid of signals, this weekend should be different. The objective
is to promote experimenting with different digital modes on the unique 30
Meter Band. It’s not a contest. All the details are here:

http://www.30mdg.org/news.html

Familiarity with your PC file system is important for handling digital radio
traffic. You may be storing and forwarding messages, or sending them on by
other delivery systems. You may be composing messages in FLMSG or the PC
Text Editor. To send those messages, you need to know where they’re stored.
File management and typing are fundamental skills for digital operations.

Contaminated drinking water in Sandy Utah where a no-drink order is in place pending lab results on levels of copper and lead.

The impacted area has expanded in size twice since the initial discovery and now includes as many as six schools, care centers and a recreation center. More than 450 households are impacted.

Residents were being advised Saturday not to boil the water because boiling actually increases metal concentrations. City representatives were going door to door delivering water and will individually test each home, business and facility in the impacted area.

Full story KSL.com

“Then we found out yesterday (Friday) from a news article that there is lead and copper in the water,” he said. “It is infuriating. Nobody told us about copper. Nobody told us about lead.”

It’s wet in Humboldt. had over 6″ of rain since Saturday, probably another 1″ on the way. Rivers reaching critical, roads going away.

If you live near Brookings, Oregon, your northern escape road, HW-101 went away with no ETA of being open:
https://tinyurl.com/yxuyzkdf

In the mean time, my new batteries are carryi´nÊIiheta Even in the nasty days, my solar panels give me just enought juice to keep my batteries in the “happy zone”!

Also, keeping with l ¹ BIRDS:

This station uses a short, low inverted dipole with balanced feeder to work ORCA and all other stations between 6m and 160m.

Signals fading rapidly at 6:51pm PST
Not going to try signal notes tonight, back is very grumpy. :(
wa7hhe is loudest station heard now. other Utah stations good cpy.

BTW, CAPS SEND BETTER THEN LOWER CASE IN BAND CONDX!!

Snow acculamation has slowed down in the valley, 156% on mtn tops. But wind is up.
Six semis were toppled throughout Reno area yesterday.
Interstate 80 was closed again last night, 6th closure in the last 2 weeks.

The PSKR mode was just marginal to miss a bit or two. Otherwise good print.

WOW. Brad’s story is a bit alarming!.

Just about 4 more teaching sessions and will complete two more Emcomm Level I Certication Courses Great students this year!

The net running an hour early is nice. Almost like nomral 1930 net. The 1830 hour time change is OK for me.

Howdy good ORCA Net members and patient operators, who deserve even more recognition hi hi.

Not much has changed here just ether forgot about the time change or just wasnt here.. in ether case sorry I missed that FYI and walked ontop of you in net progress, wont happen again hi hi..

Wx here is a real challenge , its been very cold below zero then very warm with water running all over the place flooding our yard and garage.. no damage just had to make some quick trenches and places for the water to go. our neighbor was pumping his yard out to the back alley and it just run over into our yard and back into his back yard under our our fence… a comedy of errors hi hi.. great to hear so many on ttyl8ter Break de K7DV

sounds like the neighbor’s solution was not good 4 u… cold doesn’t sound good either thanks for working the new time with us Dave I think it’s going to be our time for awhile now BREAK next 4 Comments is Mindy W7ZAP < NCS

Good thing we started the net early, as some close-by stations signals are fading as we go along. Most UT stations are strong. Unusually poor image copy on Larry N7SND tonight. Doug KA7FOO’s signal was strong at start and weaker by mid-net and back up 4 comments. Wow! Gene W1EEP… thanks for the kind words! Ken KR7KR’s demo on the IPAD w/voice dictation was VERY impressive! Didn’t realize that was a possibility.

Brookings recieved 12″ to 18″ of rain in 4 days. Very saturated ground here with creeks and rivers at very high levels. On alert for a few days for possible flooding. HWY 101 along coast just north of Brookings closed due to significant road slippage.

Great to see all on the WF tonight! Looks like the new time is working well for most. Hope to work with you all again soon.

K7KY DE KF7ELY

RUNNING 50 WATTS TO HOPEFULLY GET BACK TO YOU… GOOD NET TONIGHT, THE TEST IMAGE WAS PERFECT AS WERE MANY OF THE OTHER STATION, THE BAND WENT SOUTH ON ME LATER IN THE TRAFFIC SESSION AND I NOW HAVE SOME QRM, S/N = -23, BUT I HEARD ENOUGH TO KNOW THE NET WAS STILL GOING. I WILL START MY WEATHER WARNING UPDATES AT 21:00 PST FOR THOSE WHO WANT TO COPY THE WINTER WEATHER WARNINGS. I AM SUPPOSED TO GET ANOTHER 5 TO 10 INCHES OF SNOW ON TOP OF THE 15 INCHES WE ALREADY HAVE. JUST KEEP SHOVELING, JUST KEEP SSHOVELING!
