For Mindy & I, tonight was memorable. The net ran smoothly; it didn’t miss a byte. We thought we had eleven active stations for the FLAMP exercise, but in hindsight, Greg AA6GD may have intended to check in&out or had equipment issues. In any case, we didn’t hear from him after ck-in. The band was better than it’s been lately, but signals were down a bit from last week. Tonight’s theme seemed to center on resourcefulness, an Amateur attribute.

Steve K6ETA, part of our off-frequency traffic exercise, missed ck-in when his laptop crashed. I had him logged as the first ck-in to facilitate the Traffic exercise; I was confident he would be here. He sorted out his station and completed the mission. During the exercise, he and Jaye KE6SLS were pestered by a Jammer. They changed modes several times to find the right mode to overcome a strong carrier. They later changed frequency and ditched the Jammer. Their knowledge of modes and their ability to change modes quickly w/o conversation gave them an advantage. They completed their mission in spite of the interference.

They were not the only problem solvers tonight. Larry N7SND also had station issues, but sorted them out and completed the net. Greg KG7GMI dealt deftly with an unanticipated relay request. Mindy asked him to relay fill blocks during the FLAMP exercise, a task he’s familiar with, but was not expecting. I suggested him to Mindy because his signal was strong and I thought Gene W1EEP would copy him easily. Anyway, Greg handled a hot-potato nicely.

We were really delighted with net operations; they wrapped in an hour twenty-nine minutes. Very good considering the number of active stations. The optional exercise within the FLAMP exercise requires more Operator knowledge and creates FLAMP traffic for the Traffic round. It helps reduce Traffic round time and enables more practice with FLAMP features. Thanks for your attention and focus. The flow and harmony of our net is remarkable. I’m always impressed that this dispersed group of radio Operators comes together every week in precise harmony. It’s an impressive testament to your knowledge and skill, and an indication that ORCA is mission focused.

We think the new changes will enhance ORCA. Short practice files will be the norm; longer files still OK with discretion. We want to retain interesting and useful content in practice messages, while keeping an eye on the clock. Let us know if you want to send large files or images after net; interested Ops can stick around. Providing easy Early Ck-Out may enable some to work the main FLAMP exercise and Ck-Out early when time is pressing. We’ll see how that goes.

The FLAMP exercise ran very smoothly again tonight. We actually CONFIRMED 9 of 10 active stations on the first pass with THOR 50×1. We thought we had 11 active, but realized later AA7GD was not active. Not bad results for a marginal band. It took a couple more evolutions to fill the last station; Greg KE7DMI did well when surprised with the task of relaying fill blocks. We don’t mean to blindside anyone with relay requests, but sometimes it happens. Greg has come up to speed quickly and had a strong signal last night. We thought he would be copied well in UT.

Gene W1EEP’s copy of the test image indicates why he was hard to fill tonight. Ken KR7KR printed my Avatar much better about 10min later.

Thanks for your contribution to tonight’s net. I hope you enjoyed it as much as we did. I look forward to working with you all again next Tuesday evening.

ANNOUNCEMENTS 26/March/2019

Tonight’s FLAMP exercise distributes the file, ‘ex111.txt’, an FLDIGI/FLMSG/
FLAMP exercise. If you complete the optional exercise, send that file to NCS
in the Traffic round tonight or any net.

During tonight’s Traffic round, Steve K6ETA and Jaye KE6SLS will demonstrate
off-frequency traffic handling. Traffic and Emergency nets pass traffic off
the net frequency.

Increasing participation impels us to make some adjustments before ORCA
nets get any longer. We’ve had a couple nets near two hours lately. That’s
way too long.

The main change is to practice-message length. Please use practice traffic
that can be sent in a minute or less. Practice traffic that wraps in 30sec
provides similar practice to a message that takes 5min. This doesn’t mean
never send a longer file; we wouldn’t want to hinder Ops like Brad WA7HHE
who summarizes pertinent radio articles and includes follow-up links.
Practice Situational Awareness and send short files or QRU when the active
roster is large or band condx hinder the net.

Same goes for images in Traffic round. We get equal traffic practice with a
30sec b/w image as we do with a large color image that prints too blurry to
read. While the band is irons, we’ll stick with grayscale images that print
around 30-50sec. Our grayscale signal evaluation test image (ORCA Logo)
prints in 30sec and provides an indication of band condx. Long files and
images can always be exchanged following the net.

We’ve also changed the periodic call for late check-ins. When we look for
late stations, we’ll also call for Early Ck-Out so those wanting to skip
the Traffic and/or Comment rounds can leave early. When you leave early,
be sure to Ck-Out w/NCS so we don’t waste net time calling for you.

The following Avatar image is a an example of
useful b/w images. It has gross and fine detail
and sharp contrast, helpful features for evaluating
band conditions. It prints in 20sec and provides
the same traffic-handling practice as a 5min image;
information about band conditions is a bonus…

We’ll come back for Steve K6ETA next 4 Comments is Jaye KE6SLS < NCS

ORCA de ke6sls TU Doug. I’m just going to paste this in here as I was working on it as u called me!

off freq tfc handling recap
This was very off freq. As soon as k6eta began the flamp, we snagged a full on jammer whistling and we were in mfsk64 mode. Amazingly, flamp still managed to snag a bunch of the tfc and I moved us down to mfsk32 to let Steve know we had issues and suggested we move down one. We moved to 3.576. Guess what, the jammer did too!

We moved into mfsk16 and Steve suggested 3.583. Once up on that freq we were able to go back to mfsk64 and only required one fill! Being MODE ADGILE made all the difference! TU Steve and ORCA that was a serious challange and these two tools proved very effective.

Our Local Hospital (Inter Mountain Health Care network) looks like is setting up a D-Star repeater, so looking forward to doing some D-Star. The repeater is operational however the Gateway needs completion. Found it interesting that one can work also H.F. D-Star; where one does not have to rely on the internet.

Short range comms, two weeks in a row that I am able to copy Greg KG7DMI.

More snow forcasted for tonight. Maybe up to 4 foot on mountain tops. If so, will set new records for many ski resorts for annual snow accumulation. Squaw Valley Resort reported a 49 foot snow fall as of a week ago.

On April 6th will be doing a class on FlDigi.
Basic operations and ARES operations. Should be a good class since there is a fair amount of interest in the local hams.

Great net tonight!
Looks like my grimlin is mostly gone! Seems like it was a sound card/SignalLink configuration problem.
NCS signal was very good tonight! s/n was 4-10 tonight! Good copy on most stations and W1EEP was coming in nice and strong tonight (over 10) Spring is in the air! We have had some really nice weather here! Looking forward to the end of the semester. We have lots of changes in the works at SUU. We are moving to a Trimester system with 12 week semester (down from 15 weeks) so we have to change all of our classes… It is going to be a busy year!

:mg:629 I was just thinking that I’d never actualy filled missed blocks before, and POW! You had me scrambling
to remember how to do it. Thats what makes it fun though! Now that I look at it I think I actualy send blocks
from the wrong file. I manualy typed in 3,4 instead of using the “Fetch” button. Won’t do that again. That might
explain why my file was not at the bottom in the traffic round…. Learned something and had fun doing it!
Thanks!

I do have a question; on my second attempt at filling block 4. I changed the transmit window in FLAMP to MFSK
16, but it transmitted in 32. Do I need to engage TXID in FLDigi? or what??

K7KY < K6ETA My main shack machine died just before the net (as in no video, won’t boot), so it was a mad scramble to fire up the laptop and get rig control back on. WHEW!

LOTS of traffic below… maybe malicious as it followed us? We were trying to be skinny guys running between the rain drops! Then we went up to 3583 and even some traffic there but we managed to finish the relay. Jaye was very nimble, so it worked out.

This is a good drill for any ORCA and I encourage others to try! It makes you a better op for sure!
Thanks and 73! < K6ETA SK

Steve thanks so much for working the exercise with Jaye for us… I’m hoping others will take up the lightweight challenge and jump into the off-freq traffic pool… we’re thinking to make this a regular part of Traffic and let Ops jist put it together with a friend and announce it at net ck-in.. Surprise us, so to speak… we’ll work on adding it to the net I hope the jammer is an off-event BREAK are there any more comments for the net? < NCS
