Duvall to Carnation Fire Station Communication

Mel N7GCO <leadcoach@...>
 

On Friday October 3, 2008 Tom Needham (WA7TBP) and Mel Ming (N7GCO)
did a test from the Carnation Fire Station to the Duvall Fire Station.

We were able to communicate simplex on the club primary communication
ferquency but not on the repeater.


Repeater Software

Mel N7GCO <leadcoach@...>
 

I made Four (4) exact duplicates CD's of the programming disk (One for
the President, Vice President, Secretary and Fire Station)

and Nineteen (19) Cd's that include all of:
• Disk 1 (PS-3 Programming Software Ver 4.02)
• Disk 2 (PL-1 and PE -1 User Manuals)
• SVARC Constitution and ByLaws

I think Jerry will give them out at the next club meeting.

Other useful information for our repeater management team:

Pacific Research Solutions web site

Technician Class for potential HAMS

Mel N7GCO <leadcoach@...>
 

I thought members of the club may know someone who would like to get a
license.
-------------------------------------------
Interested in Amateur Radio? Want to become a ham? The Technician
class license is the first of the FCC Amateur Radio licenses.

MicroHams will be sponsoring our last no-code Technician class course
in 2008 on October 17-19. Classes run 7:00pm-10:00pm Friday,
9:00am-5:00pm Saturday and 11:00am-noon Sunday. The class is available
to anyone but we ask you register in advance because we have limited
seating and materials. Testing will start at 2:00pm Sunday and is also
open to the public by reservation. The class will cover the entire
Element 2 (Technician) question pool.

The course will run $40 and includes a textbook, handouts and the
testing fee. The W5YI Technician Class book by Gordon West will be
provided including a number of other handouts, even discount coupons
for new radios. If you already have a book, the class fee is $20.
Testing is also open to anyone for any license class but those not
enrolled in the class will need to pay the standard $14 testing fee.

The October class will be held at the Mercer Island Community Center
at 8236 SE 24th Street, Mercer Island, WA 98040.

To register, simply email your contact information (name, phone
number(s), preferred email address) to classes@microhams.com. Letting
us know how you heard about the class would be helpful. For more

NET Controller

Rowland - K7RWB <slick56@...>
 

NET Controller

Jerry and I have served as Net Controllers for most of the time over the past few years.  We think it would be a good idea for some of you to have this experience also.  We have the script all made up and all you have to do is read it and follow it.  For those who do not get on the air very much it would be good practise and confidence builder in radio skills.

I am going to upload the scripts onto this site so you can print them and be familiar with them.  I will be talking about this at the next meeting and have a sign up form.  I was nervous the first time but it went pretty smooth.  Once you do it you find out it is pretty easy.

One of the main reasons for sharing this resposibility is a serious one.  In the time of emergency there should be many people in the cub that are familiar and comfortable in running the net as who knows where we will all be at the time of need.

Thanks!

Be Prepared for The October 2nd Meeting

Rowland - K7RWB <slick56@...>
 

Be Prepared for The October 2nd Meeting

The October 2nd meeting has been designated for a two year planning session for the club.  Please jot down your thoughts and ideas on the direction you would like to see the Snoqualmie Valley Amateur Radio Club take the next two years and bring them  to the meeting for discussion and comparison with all the other members ideas and suggestions. 

Here are some ideas that were briefly discussed at the last meeting:

  • Working with Camp Korey (Carnation Farms) to set up a radio station
  • Help get some of the staff at Korey thier Tech License
  • Work with the Boy Scouts for Jamboree on the Air (See story in messages on this site)  http://groups.yahoo.com/group/KE7GFZ/message/162
  • Work to get the repeaters working through out the valley including Duvall and Carnation

And so on.................

Thank You!

The Board

 

 


Boy Scouts

Mel N7GCO <leadcoach@...>
 

Tonight at the club there was discussion on the Boy Scouts Jamboree on
the Air.

What is Jamboree on the Air (JOTA)?
When Scouts want to meet young people from another country, they
usually think of attending a World Jamboree. But few people realize
that each year more than 400,000 Scouts and Guides "get together" over
the airwaves for the annual Jamboree-on-the-Air (JOTA). Modern
technology offers Scouts the exciting opportunity to make friends in
other countries without leaving home.
JOTA is an annual event in which Boy and Girl Scouts and Guides from
all over the world speak to each other by means of Amateur (ham)
Radio. Scouting experiences are exchanged and ideas are shared via
radio waves. Since 1958 when the first Jamboree-on-the-Air was held,
millions of Scouts have met each other through this event. Many
contacts made during JOTA have resulted in pen pals and links between
Scout troops that have lasted many years.
With no restrictions on age or on the number of participants, and at
little or no expense, JOTA allows Scouts to contact each other by ham
radio. The radio stations are operated by licensed amateur radio
operators. Many Scouts and leaders hold licenses and have their own
stations, but the majority participate in JOTA through stations
operated by local radio clubs and individual radio amateurs. Some
operators use television or computer-linked communications.

http://www.arrl.org/scouts/jota/
http://www.arrl.org/scouts/

When?
JOTA is held the third weekend in October of each year. JOTA takes
place starting Saturday at 0000 hours local time (12:00 AM) to Sunday,
23.59 hours local time (12:00 PM), though some activity continues over
from Friday to Monday to take advantage of long distance (DX) time
differences.
