I can do Monday 12:00.  Send my your email address if you have a chance so we don’t need to bother all of Snovarc.

Hi Ken,

 

I have a Astron SS-30, it is good for 25 continuous or 30 Duty cycle.

 

You can have it for $75

I'm in need of a 12 volt power supply capable of 20 amps.  Does anyone have one they are interested in selling?
If not, does anyone have suggestions for one that is stable, relatively low radio noise, quiet and not overly bulky?

I can’t say that I have experience with a lot of different power supplies, but I have been very happy with the Samlex power supply which I have had for several years.

I’ll second the Samlex.

This was also a topic that came up on the new ham net Thursday. There were a few that were brought up that people liked.

<tap> <tap> is this thing on? Hello APRS!

Ryan - KJ7GIE
 

Where is the APRS?

Yes, new thing to play with that does not work in my hole in the valley. HA! At least I'm consistent. So, I set a radio to APRS analog and left it connected to APRSDroid all day and got nothing. I _can_ reach a Cougar repeater which then bounces my packets to a digipeater on the peninsula? Yup, that seems strange. But I can only reach it like 1 out of 30 tries (manually sending my position).

Is there no digipeater in the valley? Do we want one?


Re: Echolink best practices?

 

Welcome,

Some tips can be found on the group page on how the EchoIRLP works. I would suggest not hanging on the repeater if on EchoLink as we can only have two connections at a time. One more thing to note is if EchoLink or IRLP are connected the system is tied up for that particular operation. Example if EchoLink is in use IRLP cannot connect and opposite is true also. We do have IRLP connected to KBARA every morning but KBARA does have Echo connection that can be used during the net, I think it is KB7ARA-R?

Ryan,
Only one Echolink connection on the Cougar repeater. So, first in for tonight’s net will connect. My understanding is 30 minutes of connection with no activity is considered the polite limit to give others a chance.

Enjoy the net!

Howdy,
I got Echolink functional on my machine this morning. As I have not been able to TX from my home to the repeater (work in progress, need hardware) I decided to play with Echolink. It works great. But I cannot find any best practices for actually using the Echolink server on the repeater.

- Can I just stay connected to it 24/7 or does that tie it up and prevent other uses?
- Are others using the Echolink server in this way? I know it is announced when someone connects to it but I've never heard anyone else connect.
- Anything else I should know?

Also.. Echolink is pretty darn neat. Since I can TX now I plan on actually checking into the net tomorrow. Talk to a few of you then.

SPECIAL MEETING MAY 15 re first aid for eye injuries

Lindy KG7IFA
 

TO SNOVARC FYI:

Below is the information for the MRC upcoming meeting on May 15. If you only come to one meeting this year, this is the one -- and there will be food too!

                                                                                                                                    

MRC: Special meeting May 15 with Dr. Sara Low

When: May 15, 2019, 6:45-8:45 p.m.

Where: Downtown Duvall Fire Station, corner of 1st and Stella, meeting room

 

Be sure to join us on May 15 at 6:45 at the downtown Duvall Fire Station for a very special MRC meeting. We have invited Dr. Sara Low, optometrist at Duvall Advanced Family Eyecare, to speak to us on eye anatomy and first aid for eye injuries. This is a pertinent subject for our upcoming first aid station for Duvall Days. We have encountered eye injuries every year we have done the first aid stations and with summer right around the corner with its increased outdoor activities, it is a pertinent subject for all of us.

We will also be finalizing the first aid station staffing for Duvall Days, June 1.

You will find some good information on the Medical Reserve Corps and some good finger food snacks as well!
