Band condx tonight seemed more akin to Summer condx. They’ve been improving steadily lately, but tonight was a throwback.  Although we logged 33 stations, none of them were far afield. We’ll ask our distant members which net station they usually copy the best; it will help us choose the best Relay station for condx. Mark KA7ULD in Helena, MT could barely copy NCS. Condx were even worse for Rick K0KEX in Smithville, MO who only copied two TxID signals. We heard a couple very light signals that didn’t decode and they didn’t come back.  If you hear light signals that we miss, we always appreciate a Relay. We want to acknowledge and log stations that take time to ck-in, even when they’re too light to work the net.

We’ve nearly finished a major rewrite of our ORCA Macros. We managed the net with the old sets and the NBEMS Exercise with the new. Changes to macro positions take awhile to internalize. Some macro functions have been on the same key for years. Our fingers know exactly where. Even small changes can trip us up. Big changes mean a longer learning curve and more errors. This is a major revision and we were a little apprehensive, but pre-net practice went well. Only the NBEMS Exercise used the new layout.

The NBEMS Exercise ran like a Swiss clock. The new macro layout worked very well, resonating with seven accomplished digital Ops to produce one of the smoothest Exercise we’ve run. Note that these seven Ops have quite a range of ORCA experience, from around 8yrs to less than 1yr. There was no discernible difference between Operators. Their performance reflects the value of interest, focus, and regular practice.

Ops that work the NBEMS Exercise will be assets on any digital net. They’ll be less stressed by the intensity and pressure of emergency communications. Emergency nets are unlikely to process traffic at the speed we practice. Ops working this Exercise precisely at speed, will be more comfortable with the pressure of emergency traffic. They’ll contribute to a calm, well focused operation.

The Path Evaluation Macro rollout is going well. Six stations have CONFIRMED it working correctly on all three PC platforms. We’re logging these stations; when it’s working for most of us, we’ll use it during occasional nets to learn more about our signal pathways. Please use only the published version for net events. Keeping the macro original will provided consistency to our observations. It executes in 33sec. Experimenting during nets won’t add much to net length.

The Path Evaluation Macro Instructions and Image are available to download in the website sidebar, visible from any page: http://orcadigitalnet.com  Let us know when you have it working or if you need assistance: ncs@orcadigitalnet.com

Tonight’s net was a tick longer than usual; 1hr 10min. Practicing with the FLMSG Radiogram form takes a bit longer. The Radiogram has more form overhead. Two stations took advantage of the after-net Monitor’s Session.

ANNOUNCEMENTS

Next week, 02/Nov/21, we’ll run another Mode Shoot-Out during the NBEMS Exercise, OFDM-500F vs OFDM-750F. Tonight, we’ll send an OFDM Info file in the Comment Round.

Tonight, we’ll practice NBEMS traffic-handling with the FLMSG RadioGram form. Radiograms are routinely sent through the National Traffic System. Much of the daily NTS traffic is generated for practice. During disasters, Radiograms are the default form for Health & Welfare traffic. EMCOMM Ops should be familiar with Radiogram form. Our affiliate, Western Digital Net, handles all forms of NTS traffic. Remember, Exercise questions are there to simulate traffic. Occasionally, they’re relevant.

We’ve developed another practice Macro. When everyone has it working, we’ll explore path quality during nets, one station-2-all stations, and all stations-2-Net Control. It’s not a difficult macro, but does require attention to details.

On occasion, we’ll ask one station to send the ORCAtest image by macro. All receiving stations will email the image to NCS for publication in the Net Report. It will be interesting to see how everyone copies a single station.

On other occasions, we’ll ask all Active stations to send the image and we’ll publish Net Control’s reception of those stations. It should be interesting and informative. It may help choose Relays w/o trial & error. It may help evaluate station and antenna performance. We’ll learn something about paths between stations while learning more about macros. There may be other uses.

The Macro Instructions file and the image ‘ORCAtest.png’, are downloadable from our mainpage: http://orcadigitalnet.com Download both files; the image was recently renamed. If you don’t have favorite directories/folders for these files, put them on the Desktop where they’re easy to find. Email us when your macro is working, or you need assistance: ncs@orcadigitalnet.com

If you would like email notice when the weekly Net Report is published, or to be removed from the list, email: ncs@orcadigitalnet.com Net Reports are published weekly on the website under ‘Net Reports’.

well, u guys did excellent much better than I I’d just revised all my macros and for the most part it worked well, but I made a couiple erors one calling K7HDX

twice and somehow we lost KB7VX anyway nice work we’ve not run many Exercises that went so smoothly btn < K7KY

Good focus for all the active stns in poor band condx. FB Doug with a full house… good to be exercising w/the Radiogram.
MFSK32 really shines.

Am now at home QTH for about a week and then will be heading to my next contract in southern Missouri, where doubtful will be able to check in due to lateness of the hour Central Time, having to work next day. I have just put up a new antenna, 134 ft doublet, fed with 300 ohm twin lead, apex now at 55 feet. Much less inductance seems to be needed on 80 and 40 with the antenna at this height. Poring rain here but solid signals from NCS and most — what a change from New Mexico. KB7VX

Nice sig rpt Bruce. Ur S9 +10 and 17dB. Wow.. u get around as traveling med guy. Travel safe and hope to catch u on the air agn soon

Band was up and down tonight. Not many decodes of traffic. Both NCS stations would dip down enough to cause garbled print. Thanks for the exercise. Waiting for late fall weather. Predicted snow at our elevation did not fall but we have received a nice amount of rain. All is well. 73 de WB7EUX

Good signal from u S9+ . Stay warm out there!

The rain gauge here has accumulated over a foot of rain since Thurs. eve. and, so far, the dirt road is mostly still there! Delighted that fire season is past us now. The fire fighters are still rushing out to debris burns to bust folks for burning w/o permits. Something about air quality enforcement in the hills. Pfttt… As Rosanne Rosanna Dana would say, “It’s always sontin’.”

BTW, my new ORCA Test Image Macro seems to be working well. TU Doug for another fun macro.

Thanks to our hosts, Doug and Mindy. 73 to all.

WOw! Lots of rain here, but not a foot! Tnx for macro input. Im looking forward to that!

Had some wind up here in the Puget Sound Region the last couple days but the power stayed on. Another great net! Abt half way through the band started dropping, But things held up.

Looking forward to the mode shootout next week. Thanks for opportunity to practics.

Yes… mode shootouts are always fun. Good practice 4 all of us!

I haven’t looked at the news today to see how California weathered the storm. I hope all is okay. Not much more to share. Have a great weekend and Happy Halloween. 73 to all. W6DLW.

This weekend, I revised three sets of ORCA Macros down into two. Tonight was their first trial. Overall, they work great, but it’ll take me awhile to learn new locations for some functions. I used to have CALLSIGN buttons for stations that ck-in regular. Some Ops like Jaye KE6SLS & Brad WA7HHE have been on one button so long their callsigns burned into the virtual plastic (-:

For the NBEMS Exercise we may have done better w/PSK-250R, but I forgot to turn up the power as for all the PSK modes. Next time. Remember, when replying to NCS, no need 4 Pre-Tone

Bruce KB7VX, we have 3-4 Ops that ck-in from Missouri

TU Lamar AE7LT 4 the working Macro Report I’m logging working macros

FEMA Region X HF Interoperability Testing (60m)


FEMA Region X Monthly Interoperability NET, which comprises Alaska, Idaho, Oregon, Washington, conducts a monthly interoperability communications exercise on the 60-meter band. This exercise often includes a voice portion and a digital portion.

FEMA Region X uses the call sign of WGY910. The COMMEX occurs on the third Wednesday of the month from 1730 to 1900Z. Primary check-in is usually on 60-meter channel 1.

SHORTWAVE RADIOGRAM

Shortwave Radiogram transmits digital text and images on an analog shortwave broadcast transmitter. The program is produced and presented by Dr. Kim Andrew Elliott KD9XB. Shortwave Radiogram continues VOA Radiogram's tradition testing new modes and is an interesting source for Digital Ops wishing to practice more with FLDIGI & FLAMP.
