February 18 SNOVARC mini drill

Tom WA7TBP
 

Hello everyone:

This Thursday's mini drill is going to simulate a sudden start up informational check in net. We will use our recent storms as a basis to obtain information about damage to our local infrastructure. There will be no forms involved. The net control station will provide you with a list of questions to ask. You will be responsible for making your own report form. Be prepared to be "thrown under the bus" to simulate different problems. All stations that check into the net should record the information being gathered. Net control may ask stations to relay the information they received from one station to another. All our exercise will be conducted on the SNOVARC UHF repeater on Cougar Mountain, 441.825 MHz, plus 5 Mhz, tone 103.5 Hz. I am not planning on simulate radio problems. We are concentrating on gathering data.
 
If you have any questions, you can e-mail me at: tomwa7tbp@..., or call me at home 425-333-4833.
 
See you after the SNOVARC net, sometime around 8:15 PM.
 
73,
 
Tom

Correction here.......On 2022 Cascadia Rising Drill

From what I understand they will NOT be exercising/drilling radio communications during the main event.
Just wanted that to be clear.  Sorry for the error.

Thanks,

Re: Grow lights bill SHB 1019 needs ham comments

Robin WA7CPA
 

This is what I wrote, but others will likely have other effective commentary:

As a federally licensed amateur radio operator (WA7CPA) I strenuously object to residential marijuana grow lights. They create illegal radio frequency interference with cheap products that completely wipe out the ability for amateur radio operators to receive high frequency signals. Our hobby is the last line of communication when all else fails. Amateur radio needs to be protected. Hobbyists have made very substantial investments in radio infrastructure that is rendered useless by grow lights. Many who have been "hams" for decades have suddenly found their stations to be inoperable due to grow lights. The higher public good is served by amateur radio than by proliferation of residential grow lights.


Grow lights bill SHB 1019 needs ham comments

Robin WA7CPA
 

https://app.leg.wa.gov/pbc/bill/1019

If you care about the RFI from residential grow lights please comment on the bill at link above. Many local hams are commenting. It would be great to add Snovarcian voices to school legislators on the higher public good of keeping ham radio operators able to operate effectively in an emergency on HF, etc. We don't have to be against marijuana to object, just against the cheap FCC illegal junk being purchased at the Big Box stores for residential application. 

Thank you for taking a minute to comment at the link above

Robin, WA7CPA

5) unkey mic and listen for your words to be repeated back to you.

Hi -

I have made some changes in my shack and would love to know how it sounds.

Years ago there used to be a function on the 825 repeater that allowed "playback".  If I recall correctly, you keyed up, entered a DTMF tone, and then identified over the air.  After a few seconds, the repeater would play back what you said.

Does that function still exist?  And, if so, how does it work? 

Thanks,
