Tonight, 80m propagation was fair for most stations and un fair for others. It’s good to see Aaron AG7GK in Mesa,AZ again. It’s been a year or so. The Roster is lighter than usual at 29 stations. When the Rainbow Canyon ARC meets in Cedar City,UT, it effects the Roster.

Tonight we began reminding members of ORCA Protocols. Checking in correctly makes compiling the Roster easier. ORCA Protocol sets TxID OFF and Pre-Signal Tone Disabled. Those signals are redundant and waste net time. You only activate TxID when changing Modes in the Advanced NBEMS Exercise Traffic Round. Sending a Tune signal (Pre-Tone) when NCS calls you is redundant; everyone expects your transmission. ORCA net Protocols are designed to produce an efficient net. Not sending unnecessary signals saves net time. Tonight, we wrapped the net in 59min. We pack a lot of net business and practice into an hour. Your attention to Protocols and net operations makes this level of efficiency possible. Thanks for helping us conduct the net; we work as a team. It’s the only way it works.

We’re really doing well with Macro experiments. Nearly everyone succeeded in switching Macro files with the <MACROS> Tag. Nice work all around. <MACROS> is a very useful Tag. If you don’t need all four Button rows visible at once, the 2 row configuration works better with the <MACROS> Tag than pressing the Row Buttons on one Set. Keep the top row Buttons similar in all Macro sets so you can use Function 1-12 for each set. Use the 2nd row for Macros specific to that set. Switch any number of sets instantly with a single mouse click. Doug has four Macro sets w/3 Buttons on each set to call the others.

Going forward, we’ll emphasize Ck-In Protocol for New stations and introduce them to FLDIGI Macros. Ck-In Protocol will be their first digital task. Checking in correctly is more important than how it’s sent, keyboard or Macro. The ORCA Ck-In Macros sets four net Protocols. The correct Ck-In string is sent in CAPS, and the cursor LOCKED at 1500wf. All with one Mouse click.

Please replace the <VER> Tag in your Path Evaluation Macro with this Zulu Time Tag, <ZT:%H:%M:%Sz>. This Time Tag will help us match image to station. We’ll again experiment with the Path Macro during next weeks Comment Round when you’ll combine the Path Evaluation Macro and the Comment Macro (<FILE> Tag) in a single transmission. You choose the order.

Nearly everyone succeeded in switching Macro sets with the <MACROS> Tag. We’re moving along to more powerful and useful Macros. We’re learning to configure our Macros to suit our needs. We can use two Macros to begin and end a single transmission. The first Macro starts the transmitter, ID’s, and leaves the transmitter ON. Next we enter Text by keyboard. The transmitter is still on, so the ending Macro ID’s and stops the transmitter. The transmission looks seamless at the RX end and we communicated a little faster w/less typing. Our Macros can also set/change FLDIGI setting in the background in micro-seconds.

If you need help with FLDIGI Macros, email us: ncs@orcadigitalnet.com.

We’ve not clearly explained which Test images to email for publication. For most net sessions, we ask you to email the Test images sent by NCS at the beginning and end of the net. When we experiment with the Path Evaluation Macro in the Comment Round, we want the two best images you receive from other net stations in the Comment Round. Images from beginning/end of net reflect all stations reception of NCS. Images from the Comment Round reflect path  quality between net members.

ANNOUNCEMENTS

A Basic NBEMS Exercise is on tonight’s agenda. No Traffic Round. The Basic NBEMS Exercise accommodates 12 stations.

Macros are also on our Agenda. For the Comment Round, please combine your Path Evaluation Macro and comments in a single transmission. The Time Stamp Tag in your Path Macro should be replaced with the <VER Tag. In your comments, please say if you succeeded with the task of switching Macro files with the <MACROS Tag.

Again tonight, please email the two best images you copy in the Comment Round. Send only those two images. This experiment is helping us learn which stations are best heard by the net. This info helps choose the optimum Relay station.

Here’s a Macro task for next week and beyond. Beginning next week, plan to Ck-In by Macro if you don’t already. Use ORCA Ck-In Macros available on the website: http://orcadigitalnet.com/macros/, or make your own. The ORCA Ck-In Macros set 4 Net Protocols for you automatically with a single Mouse click. Your Ck-In string will be correct and FLDIGI will be LOCKED @ 1500hz. We’ll begin asking incoming stations to use our Ck-In Macros soon after joining the net. For assistance with Macros, email: ncs@orcadigitalnet.com

Implementing Ck-In Protocol is the first learning task for New stations.  Checking in correctly is more important than how you send, Keyboard or Macro. New stations usually master our simple Ck-In Protocol in a few sessions.

Most Ops have numerous blank Macro buttons. Make two Macros for both Ck-In options. One for good band condx, your ‘CALLSIGN’ sent once, and one for poor band condx w/your CALLSIGN sent twice, ‘CALLSIGN CALLSIGN’. Now, you have the right macro for both situations. If CALLSIGN x2 doesn’t work, wait for a Relay. There may be some nights you just can’t work the net. That’s HF radio. Next is the NBEMS Exercise w/Mindy W7ZAP

I can switch between two macro sets with the macro tag.

On the second report round fldigi did not catch the mode change for reports. Received last block ok. So THOR-50-1 is 3! I know, excuses excuses. Winter has returned to Wallowa County with predicted lows in the teens this week. Also daily snow storms. Add a little wind and WOW!

Thanks for the net and valuable training.

Able to switch between macro sets and divided the ORCA and WDN into their own macros. Doug having this switch macro sets with your “macro” is exceptional. Storm came through yesterday and today it’s cold. I hate it when I get use to warm and go back to cold.

obvioiusly I have a macro in the ‘works’

Had an enjoyable net yesterday (Monday) and was able to send Lamar ae6lj ISS pass data, then relay it to another station.  Later we used FLDigi to send images rx’d from the ISS.

Speaking of ISS, have been enjoying the images being sent.  I missed the first day and will likely not copy all images.  Also found my tri- band antenna sucks compared to my high-gainer at 55′!

Last 2 days we FINALLY received 1.27″ of rain/hail here!  I hope more will fall next 4-5 days and especially hope it makes it to mountains/ lakes.

There is a CW carrier on 7.033MHz, likely from Utah or Wyoming areas. It’s been on for more than a week.  Please check your radios and listen to see if it might be near you!

HOLY MACRO!  I have 4 different sets of macros saved here.  Today I backed up THESE macros using macros12APR2022.mdf.  I am going to use the ORCA check-in macro for future check-ins and I think I am also going to display all 4 rows and see how it looks on tiny x61 screen

Training net, and Jaye clicks on RELAY not REPORT for FLA!    I apologize for that ERROR!

Ubuntu 22.04 is coming down the pike soon and I hope that will cure my “port audio” issues.  Tonight I am use pulse since I don’t have other software in use taking my sound card.  Looking forward to some new software!

I really like how spiffy the ORCA website looks.  You guys are positively amazing!  Thank you for so much USEFUL information.

Have a fresh pot of stew on the stove cooling to eatin’ temps.  It smells WONDERFUL!

Thanks for the great net and thanks to all the great ops who work it actively.  Training makes all the difference.

Stay safe, stay well.  45 degrees here now . .

Viva Ukraine!

Before I forget, Yes, I can switch between two macro sets using the <MACROS Tag. That said, I still show just a single row of macros at a time using FLDigi. I try to memorize which row number a macro is on, anticipate which set/row will be needed next and have that row up. Then I can use the F# keys with less confusion and for any macro. When I have two or four rows showing I tend to more often hit the wrong macro when hurried. Perhaps it’s a crutch I will want to lose in the future, though.

Renaming the ‘macros.mdf’ was a timely tip. I hadn’t realized that FLDigi might overwrite the file and wipe out my custom macros otherwise. Yikes!
Thank you, Doug.

My apologies to the net about the mode change with my FLAmp Report. Took me that long to understand what the problem was. I actually had 100% in Thor-100. Lots of problems with FLDigi and me this eve.

BTNCS < AE6LJ k

RR Lamar..  If you prefer to show only 1 row of buttons, you can use <MACROS to big advantage    one click will change the set and save looking thru the numbers on the right…  I couldn’t operate w/o 2 sets of 48 showing for the net   BK  John KS6M, Ur next 4 Comments < K7KY
