Re: Revision to 2020 Net Control Schedule

Rowland
 

I think the best way to do this list is once you have people that say that will do NC, assign them their dates in a standard rotation.  If when the time comes they are not available then someone else would/should step up and do the net for that date.   That is the simplest way to handle this situation.

 

Just my opinion.

 

Thank You,

 

Rowland

Ok somehow I don’t feel like changing every single assignment qualifies as “fixing minor error”.

 

Before I go thru deleting all the dates I *was* down for net control, and adding all the dates I am NOW down for net control, and rearranging plans to have someone cover the dates I can’t actually cover, can we sort of decide on a schedule where we are not going to arbitrarily change *every single assignment*?

 

People (or, at least *me*) are trying to arrange to be in town to cover their dates, or have someone else cover for them, *in advance*.  I travel a fair bit, it would be a big help if the dates I was assigned did not get changed willy-nilly after I have already made arrangements.  Move a date in November next year, I don’t much care.  Move a date in January-May, well, if that’s going to happen all the time then perhaps sadly I need to not be on the list.

Well this is one of many that have taken place north of us in the past week.  Is it an indicator of what might be coming here or just mother earth settling down a bit?  That is for you to decide.

Got my BTECH UV-5X3 HT for Christmas, programmed it with Tom and Paul’s repeater. Chatted with Paul on his repeater and did hear Tom’s repeater but no voice there. He was not home.

We now have two repeaters in the Sno valley operating on the 1.25m/220MHz band.

 

I thought folks might be interested in the band so I’ve created a 220 directory in the files section for SNOVARC and put a spreadsheet there listing both HT’s and mobile radio options that offer 220 band operation.  The list is not exhaustive, so feel free to update it if you see something missing.  The column headed “eham” gives the average eham.net rating for that model, which is not super reliable in my view but probably offers some insight.

Merry Christmas and a new repeater

Tom WA7TBP
 

Merry Christmas SNOVARC members and families. 

Donna and I wish all of you the most Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

In addition, I put my new 220 MHz repeater on the air yesterday. It is currently at my house running at 15 watts for a cook in. The repeater info: 223.960 MHz, minus 1.6 MHz, (222.36 MHz) 123.0 Hz tone input. It is a Bridge Comm repeater, 30 W. It is exactly the same package as Paul's repeater. Please try it out and when you hear me or see me, give me an idea of the coverage. I was able to work it from downtown Carnation with my handheld radio.

Again, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all.

Tom, WA7TBP

Peter - yes its digital - Digital Mobile Radio- its  one of several different digital radio standards - this one is open source. Has its pluses and minuses but seems to be the most widely adopted in our area. Other Digital standards are from Yaesu (WiresX) and Icom (DStar). Ive used WiresX and am  interested in learning about DMR. Join us!
