Thanks for working with us. It’s an honor and pleasure to work with each of you. Our original goal was developing a digital training net we would like to join ourselves. It’s worked out way beyond our expectations. Your interest, support, and participation are ORCA’s essence. Without you, we’d be doing something else.

ORCA DIGITAL NET welcomes 1st time ck-ins Jack WA6CR in Novato,CA and Emery KE7YX in Pendleton,OR. They should both do well on ORCA. Jack completed the Advanced NBEMS Exercise and CONFIRMED it in the Monitor’s Session. Emery is a long-time digital Op and knows the mode well.

We’re not anxious for Fall, but we do look forward to better 80m condx associated w/longer nights. Our only contact with Eastern members these days is email. We seldom log stations East of Utah. Ck-ins are always a little lighter in Summer. Nets are currently complete in less than an hour.

TxID: Please disable TxID for nets. NCS runs TxID enabled; members disable TxID for nets. Traffic Comment & Rounds are exceptions where you can send in a faster mode. NCS will restore net mode. That’s the only time you’ll enable TxID during nets.

Macro experiments: We’ve not yet developed an outline for Macro experiments, even though we’ve been experimenting w/them for months. We’re thinking to put Macro experiment instructions in a file we can send as Traffic. That may be better than our present practice of including them in Net Reports and Announcements. Members could keep the file available on the Desktop. Currently, we only experiment w/Macros in sessions w/Basic NBEMS Exercises. These sessions lack a Traffic round and we have more time. Now, there will be only one Basic Exercise per/month. We’ll look for other ways to experiment w/Macros that don’t increase net length.

Every session we ask someone to Relay our call for Ck-Ins. We try to pick stations most likely to be widely heard. Not every station has the QTH/antenna combination to work the entire net. No aspersions on any station. QTH isn’t easily altered and nearly everyone has some antenna restrictions, natural or contrived. If you’re a potential Relay station, please install this ORCA Ck-In Relay Macro:
———–

<TXRSID:on><RXRSID:on>
<LOCK:off><GOFREQ:1500>
<MYCALL> Relaying ORCA DIGITAL NET Ck-In
Not copying NCS? Ck-In QNX here … < <MYCALL>
<@TXRSID:off><@LOCK:on><TX><RX>
———–
The Ck-In Relay Macro has recently changed. It insures you’re sending @ 1500wf, turns TxID ON, and sends Ck-In text, then ends with the cursor LOCKED @ 1500 and TxID OFF. QNX is important in this Macro. It informs the Relayed station they’re logged QNX. We don’t have time to work distant/weak stations by Relay. We will always work Emergency Traffic by Relay and/or mode change when necessary to pass traffic quickly and efficiently.

Macro Experiment Instructions for 03/Jul/22: In the Comment Round, you’ll use two Macros. Comment Macro 1st and Path Evaluation 2nd. You will execute both Macros manually. When the 1st Macro Stops, start the 2nd Macro. Members normally work the net w/TxID OFF, but for this experiment, you’ll send TxID with the Comment Macro.

In the Comment Macro (1st), add the <RSTXID:on><@RSTXID:off> tags. This enables TxID for transmission and disables TxID after transmission. In the Path Macro, remove the <RSTXID:on> & <@RSTXID:off> tags. Now, the Path Macro has no effect on TxID. The 1st Macro enables TxID B4 transmission and disables TxID after transmission. The 2nd Macro doesn’t address TxID. The result will be a TxID sent by the Comment Macro (1st) and no TxID sent by the Path Evaluation Macro (2nd).

Experiment off-air to be sure it’s working correctly. In the <@RSTXID:off> tag, the @ character tells the Macro Parser to execute this tag after transmission ends. Without the @ character, the Parser would turn TxID on & off again in micro-seconds.

ANNOUNCEMENTS

Tonight we have an Advanced NBEMS Exercise using the FLMSG ICS-309 form. An Emergency NCS may be logging in ICS-309 or similar form. This is the last Advanced Exercise this month. Next session will the 1st Tuesday of July and a Basic NBEMS Exercise. Beginning in July, the Basic NBEMS Exercise on the first Tuesday will be the only Basic Exercise every month. All other Tuesdays will have Advanced Exercises. We have more veterans than nubies and they need to practice all the traffic-handling tasks.

Here’s important NBEMS Exercise information for incoming Ops. There’s an NBEMS Exercise every session. You’ll initially check-in QNX or simply Lurk and work the Exercises silently. They’re not difficult to learn, but they do require focus and practice. Basic NBEMS Exercises are very simple. They only require copying a file in FLAMP and Reporting your progress to NCS.

Advanced NBEMS Exercise are more complex and demanding. They entail most of the NBEMS traffic-handling tasks. They take more knowledge, time, and attention. You will be working in your PC file system, using a PC Editor, along with FLDIGI, FLMSG, and FLAMP. The Advanced Exercise requires you to closely track NCS while working the Exercise. Similar to a busy Traffic Net, you’ll delay net-flow if you’re not ready to respond.

Newer stations ck-in QNX and work the NBEMS Exercise w/o interacting w/NCS. They’re not participating in net operations, but working the Exercise silently. Immediately following the net, we run a Monitor’s Session where Monitors check their work with NCS. We Fill missing FLAMP blocks or CONFIRM Advanced Exercise files. The Monitor’s Session enables you to learn the Exercises with less time pressure.  This is helpful while learning, but doesn’t give any practice working Advanced Exercise with a close eye on net flow. You have to retain focus on net operations while completing the Exercise. It requires attention to details and practice.

Advanced Exercises have numerous discreet tasks. It’s easy to get focused on completing the Exercise and forget to follow NCS. You need to be prepared when NCS calls. Otherwise, you’ll stall the Exercise. Part of the Advanced Exercise is working under some time pressure, simulating a busy Emergency Net. The Exercises are brisk. Focus and attention are primary.

Exercise note for Active Ops: If you’ve not finished an Advanced Exercise when NCS calls, you can send QRU and CONFIRM the file in the after-net Monitor’s Session. At the end of every Advanced Exercise is the number of discreet Exercise tasks. You can check your reading comprehension.

Macro experiment instructions for next Tuesday will be in tonight’s Net Report. Macro experiments are a bit unstructured. They’re a recent addition to our curriculum and still developed on a napkin. Please email the beginning/end Test images for publication in the Net Report: ncs@orcadigitalnet.com.

It’s been useful to explore the PSK modes… there are many of them and we’re getting to know how they perform in all band condx. Some are very fast, but not as dependable in poor condx. The ICS-309 form is a good one to be handy with and exporting to CVS… nice exercise Doug.

The “‘Export CSV’ Button did not appear to save the file as .csv, so I tried to manually save it that way. Block sizes and TX duration times didn’t change, though. Not sure if that was the appropriate thing to do at this point. Will have to compare more after the net. Otherwise the file only saved as ex263A without a tag. Looked odd to me. Anyway, fun exercise tonight.

GEs and 73 all around.

The doublet antenna at the cabin seems to be doing well. I have been able to hear hams in areas that I have not heard from my dipole in Reno. I need to be out there so I can see how Tx during a net will work. Band is still tough for me. I’m still on the vertical even though I tried to lift up the wires on the dipole. But pretty good copy on the vertical for NCS at least.

Mindy, did you look at your s/n report?  Don’t think I’ve ever seen such a high number on ANY net . . .

Beautiful day here following yesterday where the marine layer didn’t give up!

I decided to try COMP my FLA.  File went from 6 blks 2m11s to 3 blks 1m18s.  Shrug.  I’ll give it a whirl!  Why?  These files use the same characters over and over, this can be compressed down to a few bits!

PS, I think this is the first 309 ex I’ve ever done.  Enjoyed the experience and see the value in this form!

Lamar, copy NCS file name in FLA then PASTE it into EXPORT CVS next time.

Friday afternoon, I wiped out this computer OS and installed an older and different version.  Finally have CAT control back and was able to install the M$ logger, n3fjp.  Lost some data in the process, but feels nice to have control of the rigs.  Still have software to install/configure.

Participated in FD this year at home.  Did join the club at Woodley Island for potluck dinner.  Enjoyed the FD even though the high bands were NIL after a week of super signals from 20m-10m!  Go figure :|

By Sunday evening, feeling pretty poorly.  Yesterday felt aweful. So today I called VA and had a “swab test” and will learn results on Wednesday.  However, today, I am feeling better, but certainly not well . . .

Good to see you all on the WF tonight.  Stay well and I’ll look for you “down the log!”

We anticipated a more difficult band tonite. That explains the slower, more robust Exercise modes.

ORCA DIGITAL NET Welcomes Emery KE7YX in Pendleton,OR. We already know Emery; he’s well versed in digital operations. It’s good to have him aboard. We’ll ask him to learn the NBEMS Exercises as a Monitor b4 checking in Active to work the Exercises.

I missed naming the Exercise file correctly tonite.  It should begin with CALLSIGN, but I muffed it. Hats-Off to those that parsed it correctly when I got it wrong. Nice work all around outputting a CSV file from the ICS-309 form.

We’re happy to give Signal Reports during the Comment Round. Ken KR7KR  = S9 & 12-14db @ net end.

Look 4 Macro experiment instructions for next Tues in tonite’s Net Report.

TU Mindy    a follow up to Jaye’s comments on Compression..   I’ve fiddled with Compression numerous times and usually find that an ordinary small file get longer time wise    maybe this is better with the CSV file as it has so many  characters    I don’t know, but I was surprised to hear it was a shorter time tx   btn < K7KY

Thanks for hosting the net, I am fairly new to digital operations, but I am getting the hang of things. Im not sure why it sent it to QST instead of your callsign and im not sure how to interpret the signal report yet but I will probably be checking into this net quite often from now on. Thanks for the net
