Would it be possible to have a Zoom presentation from some of you that have mastered this product to help out those of us that are having challenges?  I think it would be appreciated.

Third Thursday mini exercise is cancelled

Tom WA7TBP
 

Hello all:

I trust that all of you are doing well and preparing for the holidays. As of Monday this week, I have no antennas up, due to a new generator and new Hardie board siding being installed. I thought I would have a least one antenna up by today, but it isn't happening.
 
We will resume the third Thursday mini exercise in January.
 
I will see if I can make it into the Cougar repeater with my hand held, I am not holding my breath.
 
Merry Christmas to you all.
 
Tom, WA7TBP


Weekly net Winlink checkins

Paul Butzi (W7PFB)
 

For folks who want to check in via Winlink to the weekly Thursday night net:

You can check in by sending a Winlink email to the club callsign, KE7GFZ.  Mention somewhere in the email that you’re checking in to the weekly net.  You might want to include:
* what method you’re using to send the email: VHF Packet, VHF VARA FM, HF VARA, etc.
* where you are
* power levels you’re going to use, etc.

It turns out there’s a very nice Winlink form template that will autogenerate the email for you, you just populate the form and it creates the email.

To use the form:
* create a new email.  At the top click on ’Select Template’.

You get the Template Manager dialog with the tree collapsed.  Click on the “+” to the left of “Standard Templates”, and then on the “+” to the left of “GENERAL Forms”.
You should see the following:

 
 
Pick “Winlink Check In.txt” and then click on “Select” up at the top.

Your web browser will open a window with the form in it, like this.  This image has the form filled in for ME.  Obviously you’d enter the stuff for YOU.

When you’ve got the form all filled in, you click on ‘Submit’ at the bottom.  
The browser will give you a dialog about how to complete your form submission.  Click on ‘OK’.  Then close the browser window or tab.  When you navigate back to the email compose window, you should see all that info inserted into the email for you.  Now you can click on ‘Post to Outbox’ and you’re ready to connect and send the email off.

Re: Silicone Sealant for PL 259 Connections?

Paul Butzi (W7PFB)
 

I’m a little behind on this.  I’ve used a bunch of different products for this and the thing I’ve settled on is Times Microwave self bonding tape.  I’ve found the cheaper stuff seems to fail when exposed to UV.

The big win is when you need to take the stuff off.  slit it even part way with the tip of a knife, and it comes off in one piece and leaves absolutely no residue.

Howard, I have about 10 rolls of coax seal if you want one.

I was wondering if there was a silicone or similar substance that one would use on the coax feedline into the antenna to provide additional weather sealant along with rubber taping the connection?

Rick,


I would like to stay on the schedule, but I have some significant periods of non-availability this year. If things go as planned, I will be out of town from February 10 thru March 6, from May 4 thru May 24, and from October 14 thru November 6. If this is too difficult to plan around, please either take me off the schedule or place me in an available for substitute status. I appreciate your efforts in putting this schedule together and apologize for making your job more difficult. 


Sincerely,

Dick

Re: 2021 Net Control Schedule

Paul Butzi (W7PFB)
 

Having discussed with Rick how the scheduling is done, I’m going to ask that I not be included in the regular Net Control schedule.

I’m perfectly happy to be NCS when someone discovers they can’t cover their date, just let me know what dates you need covered.
