In spite of a couple glitches, the net ran smoothly and wrapped in 50min. We’ve really done well in reducing overall net time. A good bit of this gain in efficiency is due to everyone remaining focused and following net Protocols. In an emergency, we’re not likely to process traffic at this pace, but we’ll quickly adapt to more stressful conditions and perform well. The time and energy we commit to practice is not wasted.

It takes the better part of an hour to separate log noise from content. We edit noise out of the log before publication. It’s more difficult to read around and through the noise. If you don’t regularly read the net log, we suggest giving it a scan. We nearly always see things we missed during net. Reviewing the log, you may learn something about your interaction w/the net, or interactions you were unable to copy.

We had an unusual breach of protocol during Early Ck-In when a net station began calling other net stations. One station responded resulting in a brief QSO. We’re all familiar with Directed Net protocol. All transmissions go through Net Control.

Digital operations require focus and critical thinking. For ORCA and other digital nets, we all have an internal database of their performance and reliability. Anyone who’s worked ORCA for awhile will inescapably know that it’s very likely the net is operating, even though they’ve no visual or audible indications. ORCA has never missed a scheduled net since inception. You should always assume a reliable net is on freq and working until you verify otherwise. When you don’t know, don’t transmit. Little is lost by missing a net session. Better one Op misses a session than hindering operations for everyone. You can’t always connect; that’s HF radio.

A one-way-path condition frequently prevents us from working the ID ERC Net on Wednesday nights. Sometimes, we copy them 100%, but they don’t copy us. Other times, the reverse is true. When we don’t copy ERC when we believe they’re working, we wait for NCS to have Ck-In Relayed. When we don’t copy even a Relay, we pass on working ERC that evening. There’s no way to know when to TX when you can’t copy net stations.

Here’s an important point about Relaying. Digital Relays are the easiest of all Amateur Modes. You simply copy the relay-info in the RX buffer and Paste it into the TX buffer. No need to paraphrase, interpret, summarize, or even comprehend content. The objective is passing information/instructions accurately to another station. Highlight/Copy/Paste is an entry-level PC routine.

Macros, Macros, Macros. We’re doing well with Macro experiments. We were initially a bit stalled in developing a Macro Project curriculum, but we’ve moved along by working with Macros we use for net operations. Macros are FLDIGI’s master-control layer. They’re not required for operating the software, but make a huge difference in operational control and flexibility for the savvy Operator. Macro give instant command of FLDIGI settings and features. They can configure and execute complex digital operations with a single mouse click. We couldn’t run ORCA DIGITAL NET as it is without Macros. Hats-Off to those that configured FLDIGI to switch between Macro files with the <MACROS> Tag. Much of what we’ve done with Macros so far has more learning value than utility. Every Macro you create contributes to your Macro knowledge and skill.

Next session, 11/May/22, we’ll again use the Path Evaluation Macro in the Comment Round. Please change the <VER> Tag to <FREQ>. This will print your WF freq after your ID. Altering an existing Macro is often easier than creating one from scratch. We alter Macros before and during nets. We don’t have any free Buttons on our two ORCA Macro sets, so we revise existing Macros to suit the need. Take a look at, <GOFREQ:xxxx>, <GOHOME>, <LOCK:on>, & <@LOCK:off>. These are useful Tags; they’re in many of our ORCA Macros. We’ll be working with them in the future.

ANNOUNCEMENTS

Tonight and next Tuesday we’ll run a Basic NBEMS Exercise. Basic Exercises accommodate twelve stations. The first two Tuesdays every month are Basic NBEMS Exercise sessions. The remaining Tuesdays have Advanced NBEMS Exercises. Advanced Exercises accommodate eight stations and include a Traffic Round.

We’ve done a lot w/Macros in the last couple months and there’s still much to explore. Learning to modify Macros on-the-fly is an important skill. We don’t need a Macro for every possible task; we can alter many of them quickly to meet other needs. In particular, when there’s no blank Buttons, it’s better to alter an existing macro than replace a useful Macro. We Edit a couple ORCA NCS Macros every session.

Next Tuesday, 10/May/22, we’ll again use the Path Evaluation Macro during the Comment Round. For that session, please replace the ‘VER Tag’ with ‘FREQ’*. Be sure you’re on frequency; your Macro will announce your software setting. Soon, we’ll be experimenting with ‘GOFREQ’, ‘GOHOME’, ‘LOCK:off’, & ‘@LOCK:on’. You can begin exploring them now.

‘GOFREQ:xxxx’ sets Waterfall frequency. ‘GOHOME’ sets the cursor to your ‘Mode Sweet Spot’ (Config/Misc/Sweet Spot). Some Macro Tags set/change software configuraton. You can often include useful software setting in Macros that perform other tasks.

Thanks for taking the trouble to Ck-In correctly. It’s important for multiple reasons. We’re a Training net; there’s no value in practicing incorrectly. Incoming Ops are observing and emulating net operations; we want to present them with correct examples. We’re all instructors here. And, it makes compiling the Roster easier for NCS. Thanks for helping us manage net operations.

Thanks also for sustaining ORCA’s Comment Policy of no Politics, Religion, or Social Causes. For nine years, we’ve operated as a team. A major factor in our harmonious network is exclusive focus on digital networking and digital traffic-handling. We’re a group of diverse individuals with common interest in efficient digital communications. Should we be called to handle Emergency Traffic, we’re the Best West Coast team for the task.

* We’ve replace Tag brackets < > with ‘ ‘ because the arrow brackets confuse the Macro Parser.

Doug, thanks for writing useful exercises each week. You’re good at sneaking in snippets of the manual. I always like to learn something new… the mode info is useful knowledge for those of us who don’t often read the manual.

OFDM-500: 2 CONFIRMED
PSK-500R: 1 CONFIRMED
MFSK-32: 6 CONFIRMED

Odd, I didn’t copy the mode change to OFDM-500, but did copy PSK-500R.

RCA < WA7HHE, today attended an interesting Table Top Exercise-Western Region Burn Disaster Consortium.
RE: CREEK FIRE (California 2020 over labor day weekend) burn disaster preparedness exercise. “what if” from California’s Creek Fire in September 2020. At 20:00 on a holiday weekend, a local hospital receives a call informing them of a burn mass casualty incident (BMCI) in their area, and EMS is on the way, transporting many burn injured patients to their facility. You hear over the radio 63 total, 15 Red, 20 Yellow and 28 Green.

One of your patients is a child, you discover the child is deaf. Is critical not to restrain a deaf child as hands are their communication. Wearing a mask, how can they read your lips? Presentation included a picture and description of a Escharotomy with burn center physician describing the procedure. Google that one if having the stomach.

Everyone be safe during our upcoming wildland fire season. Brad

Wow… your area has the best presentations. I hope they post more to youtube. Please let us know if they do. Very useful info.
BK

Over to Tom WB7EUX 4 Comments < W7ZAP

NCS < WB7EUX – Signal levels were very low at the beginning of the net. By 0230UTC they had improved somewhat.

It was interesting how FLAMP put together the blocks. When the preamble was correctly received magic occurred and FLAMP showed 8 of the 11 blocks already decoded. Then it went on to decode the last three blocks as the data arrived. Wow!

All is well. 73 de WB7EUX

Daylight is really challenging us during ck-in. FLAMP is a useful app… glad we use it as much as we do.

This last weekend got the two rebuilt antennas up at the cabin. One facing N-S the other W-E. The winds picked up with some rain so was not able to tune it. I was able to hear some hams talking in Bakersfield, CA very clear. Next trip will tune both of them. Can’t wait to test it on a Tuesday night with ORCA net with relocating and stronger wire attachments.

Yes. I was shadowing the chk-ins again.

I seen LK0NBH just before KJ7VGV checked in.

Forgot to clear the QSO window during the relay.  Sorry, I’ll have to watch that a little closer.  hihi

I use a macro to call another macro mdf file.  That way I can have more than just the 48 in the one mdf file.  I can switch back and forth between them.

ORCA < K7KY

The QRM during Early Ck-In tonite was disappointing and disruptive. K7DV was calling WB7EUX and AD7DQ. WB7EUX wisely remained silent. K7DV and AD7DQ had a bit of back & forth, doubling NCS and Ck-Ins. When you can’t hear NCS at net time, think a little b4 transmitting. We’ve run this net for 9yrs, missing only one night when condx were terrible. You should always assume the net is operating. When you can’t copy the net, you won’t be able to participate. We always have a strong station relay the call to Ck-In.  Be patient. When you’re uncertain, don’t transmit.

My apology for being cranky about the QRM.  ORCA is a challenging net to conduct. It doesn’t take much to disrupt the flow. I’m a bit spoiled; it usually flows so smoothly. We’re a group of very competent Operators.

When NCS asks you to Relay. Relay. Don’t adlib. Copy it as sent and Relay it.

An interesting observation by Tom WB7EUX.  FLAMP frequently catchs many blocks when it’s missed the Preamble. When it does decode the Preamble, the file may be complete or need only a couple blocks.

I didn’t know we could get our eyes calibrated for near & distant. Similar to adjusting headlilghts, maybe?

You can contibute to a shorter net by turning off TxID and Pre-Signal Tone during nets. That’s ORCA Protocol.

Preparing today costs nothing tomorrow. Not preparing today may cost EVERYTHING tomorrow.  < Doug K7KY

Ck-in was a bit stressful… that doesn’t happen often. There’s a lot in ur comments… will have to digest it after the net

had a 5th Saturday drill April 30. Used FLDIGI to pass out of state messages through a round table and back again. Learned how to use the alternate message formats like ARRL RADIOGRAM. No one had seen that before and was a surprise to see how well it formats quick messages.
