Welcome back to Jim K6FWT in Eureka,CA. He’s been recovering from an accident that resulted in serious injuries. The combination of DST and improving band conditions has improved our connection with the Ops in Humboldt Co,CA. Lately, 80m has been too long at net time to work the Eureka,CA stations from NCS in Brookings,OR, about 100mi north. It’s good to have these CA stations in contact again.

For the weekly FLAMP exercise, we tried MFSK-64, but only CONFIRMED half the stations. Sending the fills in MFSK-32 completed the exercise. Doug K7KY forgot he was on my antenna and is better heard in UT & ID on his own antenna. We didn’t think to switch antennas, but we will switch them for next week’s exercise.

Erik KK6RKY asks if anyone is experimenting with FLARQ. We don’t know, but we think Ken K7IFG is familiar with FLARQ and there may be ORCA Ops using the mode also. We wonder what advantages it may have over FLAMP. If you’re interested in experimenting with FLARQ you can contact Erik.

If you’d like to learn the digital NCS skillset, contact Doug K7KY after he returns to NCS. Conducting a small portion of the net is an easy segue to running the whole net. Taking check-ins and running the weekly FLAMP exercise are two net activities that make an easy beginning to running a digital net.

You’ve probably noticed we aren’t waiting around long or calling again when stations don’t answer. If you miss your call, don’t worry, we’ll call you again when we complete the roster. There are numerous reasons Ops don’t respond when called. Sometimes the band has obscured the call, or they’re distracted. When this happens, wait for NCS to come back for you. Replying late will double with NCS and the next station.

Thanks for working with us tonight. We enjoy practicing with all of you and hope to see you again next Tuesday evening. 73 Mindy W7ZAP NCS/Alt

WELCOME to the ORCA DIGITAL NET
Mindy W7ZAP alt-NCS, SW/OR, 35w, 180′ Doublet @ 80′

ORCA meets every Tuesday 1930p/0230z – 3.581+1500 – MFSK-32
W1HKJ Software: FLDIGI, FLMSG, FLAMP

ORCA is a DIRECTED net, dedicated to learning and developing
digital operating skills and practicing digital traffic handling.
ORCA connects Amateur Operators with common interest in training,
information-sharing, and mutual-aid. Practice makes perfect!

New to ORCA? See: http://orcadigitalnet.com/quick-start/

Following check-in NCS sends:
1) B/W Test image for signal evaluation
2) Rotation list
3) Announcements
4) Weekly FLAMP exercise

Traffic Round: NCS calls each station in rotation
No traffic? (practice/formal) Send ‘QRU’.
Hold keyboard dialogue for Comment Round. Questions anytime.

Comment Round: comments, reception reports, observations, questions
(keyboard or FLMSG Form as you like)

LOCK: fldigi curser @ 1500, ENABLE: RxID & TxID
DISABLE: Mode-ID, end-of-TX-ID, CWID, CW-Postamble-ID, Auto-Pre-Tone

Unlike FLMSG, FLAMP does not detect FLAMP traffic when closed.
Configure FLDIGI to ‘AUTOSTART’ FLAMP. AR

ORCA CHECK-INS COME NOW. Send CALLSIGN or Video/ID on waterfall
First time? CALL/NAME/QTH
Monitoring stations send: ‘CALLSIGN IN&OUT’

ORCA ANNOUNCMENTS

Tonight’s weekly FLAMP exercise distributes ‘ex17.txt’, an optional
file-manipulation/FLAMP exercise. Return your file in FLAMP to NCS
during TRAFFIC round, or send your own practice message, or QRU. This
exercise provides multitasking practice in processing trraffic while
maintaining awareness of your position in ongoing net operations.

Remember…
LOCK: fldigi curser @ 1500, ENABLE: RxID & TxID
This enables fldigi to follow mode changes automatically.

DISABLE: Mode-ID, end-of-TX-ID, CWID, CW-Postamble-ID, auto-Pre-Tone
These features are not needed during net; they add time to every TX.

SEND: Pre-Tone to prevent doubles when other Ops may also respond.

Weekly Net Report posted as soon as we can…

Tonight Doug K7KY will lead the weekly FLAMP exercise… over to you K7KY < W7ZAP

:mg:515 Is there any interest in experimenting with FLARQ?

I have never used FLARQ but it seems like a nice function to have some experience with: automated hands-off file transfer. To
experiment two stations have to work together.

FLARQ allows for automatic “reports” and “fills” between two stations. The operation seems pretty straight forward with sending
a beacon, connecting and transfering files. The program automates the handshaking between the two stations until the file is
transfered with no checksum errors.
