A small, but productive net tonight. We certainly learned a lot about interference from nearby stations. Mindy & I are too close to work the same band simultaneously. I initially thought it would be handy to let Mindy work relays as we can talk together easily off-air, but no, our present station configurations will not permit us to transmit this close together.

Don WA6NBG ended up sending the Humboldt bulletin three times. Twice I couldn’t’ copy 100% due to interference from the relay station. Third time was 100% for all receivers. David NX6D and I both chose the Amateur round-the-world balloon story for our message. Very interesting story, for sure. The solar-powered radio balloon went completely around the world transmitting, before falling back to earth.

JB KR5RR had high SWR in his FT-817 before the net began and was unable to resolve it by rotation time. It was fine on 40m, but not so on 80m. He did manage brief keyboarding before checking out early. JB is leading an fldigi seminar for his local ARC this weekend.

Bob KA6ULG is still causing some TV interference at home, but was 100% copy on keyboard when he increased power. David didn’t copy him so well in the SF bay area.

Mindy sent her message and associated image in MFSK-64. I encourage everyone to experiment with modes that interest them. It will be good learn which modes work best for us under adverse band conditions.

Some of our regular members are not coming as often as usual. I think summer WX will reduce net participation a little. Also, this is a learning net and when we’re doing things the long-time members already know, they have less incentive to participate. I do my best to keep it stimulating and interesting. Now and then we get a new member that knows more than some of the regulars. I’m always glad to have them aboard; their knowledge is a major benefit to the net. If you have ideas or suggestions for net activities or improvement, let me know.

Thanks for coming tonight and I hope to see you again next week. 73 Doug K7KY NCS

ORCA DIGITAL NET, Announcements,28/Apr/15

If you’re using flamp or another mode, tell us before your traffic. After you
send/receive traffic in a
different mode, please return to MFSK-32.

Tonight we’ll do some more relaying. Stations will QSY down frequency
to relay traffic, return, and pass that
traffic to the net, simulating poor band conditions. Please use short
messages so the relay stations don’t miss
much net activity. When you QSY to a relay frequency, continue using
1500wf. It’s near the center of fldigi’s
passband.

Following this announcement and comments, NCS will call stations in
order. If you don’t have traffic in flmsg,
you’re welcome to keyboard.

Following traffic , a round, of reception reports & comments. Voice
comments optional after net.

*** Remember to LOCK fldigi @ 1500, & enable RxID, TxID, & AFC ***
(Set CONFIGURE/ID/RsID ‘Retain tx freq lock’)

Comments, Questions?, come now with your callsign. de K7KY

ALL ORCA Before we begin rotation, I’d like to set up a relay. NX6D

tonight? de K7KY k

short message. While you’re gone, we’ll send the regular bulletin from
Don WA6NBG. The Humboldt report. You
can have this bulletin relayed to you when you return if you like.
W7ZAP & NX6D. Please QSY to 3.594/1500 and pass traffic. Return to
net and relay the traffic when your rotation
turn comes. de K7KY k

:mg:970 A foil, party-type balloon carrying a ham radio payload has
circumnavigated the globe. Launched on April
6 by Australian radio amateur Andy Nguyen, VK3YT, of Kensington,
Victoria, Australia, the balloon, designated
PS-41, completed its round-the-world journey on April 16. It remained
aloft until April 22, when Nguyen reported
that it had gone down near South America. Along the way, it has been
tracked by a network of Amateur Radio
operators. Nguyen has been trying since early last year to have one of
his launches go full circle.

“PS-41 crossed the starting longitude of 144.903 at 11:20 AM AEST
(0120 UTC) this morning, completing the first
PicoSpace around-the-world trip,” Nguyen posted on April 16. “Thanks
to everyone for assistance with tracking and
providing encouragement for the project; the trip would not have been
possible without you.” In January, Nguyen’s
PS-30 balloon went down in suspected poor weather off the east coast
of Africa near Madagascar

:sb:39 Yesterday was Morse Code Day (April 27)
:mg:1861
April 27 was Morse Code Day which commemorates the birth of the
inventor of the Morse Code – Samuel Morse in
1791.

Samuel Finley Breese Morse (April 27, 1791 – April 2, 1872) was an
American painter and inventor. After having
established his reputation as a portrait painter, in his middle age Morse
contributed to the invention of a
single-wire telegraph system based on European telegraphs. He was a
co-developer of the Morse code, and helped to
develop the commercial use of telegraphy.

In 1825 New York City had commissioned Morse to paint a portrait of
Lafayette in Washington, DC. While Morse was
painting, a horse messenger delivered a letter from his father that read,
“Your dear wife is convalescent”. The
next day he received a letter from his father detailing his wife’s sudden
death. Morse immediately left Washingto
n for his home at New Haven, leaving the portrait of Lafayette unfinished.
By the time he arrived, his wife had
already been buried. Heartbroken that for days he was unaware of his
wife’s failing health and her death, he
decided to explore a means of rapid long distance communication.

While returning by ship from Europe in 1832, Morse encountered
Charles Thomas Jackson of Boston, a man who was
well schooled in electromagnetism. Witnessing various experiments with
Jackson’s electromagnet, Morse developed
the concept of a single-wire telegraph. He set aside his painting, The
Gallery of the Louvre. The original Morse
telegraph, submitted with his patent application, is part of the collections
of the National Museum of American
History at the Smithsonian Institution. In time the Morse code, which he
developed, would become the primary
language of telegraphy in the world. It is still the standard for rhythmic
transmission of data.

network of Amateur Radio operators. Nguyen has been trying since early
last year to have one of his launches go
full circle.

The solar-powered, helium-filled PS-41 balloon carried an HF payload,
sending WSPR spots and JT9 telemetry on 30
and 20 meters from a 25 mW transmitter. The high-attitude PS-41 took a
path over Tasmania, then south of New
Zealand, the southern tip of South America, directly over the South
Georgia and South Sandwich islands, well
south of Africa, and back across to Australia.

:mg:1064 Grayscale image OK.

Rotation order received with errors. Errors ignored.

My method, which works quite well for me, is to not lock the transmit
frequency, but to run with RxID and TxID at
all times, and to set the transmit wf freq to 1500 immediately prior to
transmission. The last step is done with
a macro.

I had to raise power to almost 100W before Mindy heard me during the
relay test. I received the message without
error.

KA6ULG’s transmissions were not received reliably. I have turned AGC
off in my ORCA profile so that the nearby
RTTY that starts just about 20h doesn’t knock the ORCA signals down
into the noise.

Mindy’s TxID signal was not strong enough to change my decoder mode
to the mode she was using. The wf frequency
was correct, just not enough signal to decode the TxID directive.
Switched to MFSK64 by hand and captured the
last part of the transmission without errors.

AGC reduction is not enough to keep the nearby RTTY from being
annoying to the ears. I’ve reduced my receiver
passband to 2630 Hz, which is working quite well.

NX6D David Maybe just the band. She’s not changed anything. I’m
surprised you needed 100w to reach Mindy.
It could be that she wasn’t hearing you because I was transmitting to

the same grief as me… Mindy says YES OK anything further? de

more exploring and experimenting..
