I am going to have to triple check my spelling from now on before I ever send out another poll.  You people are tough.   But I do think greg leans a little more towards a light sand color!


Thanks,

Rowland

I think Greg is more of a "taupe" if I recall.

Who can/should participate in things like this? You.


Growing skills and learning how its done are EXACTLY what these drills are for. Join and participate; the exercise is explained at the start, and if you don't understand something, say so.

I'm not trained in any kind of emergency communications, but would be interested in participating in these kinds of exercises, both to grow my skills and to learn how these things work.

Hello all:

This Thursday, we will conduct an exercise on the Carnation Repeater, 441.850 MHz, plus 5 MHz, Tone 103.5 Hz, or you may access the repeater via the Big Rock cross band frequency, 145.750 MHz, simplex, tone 103.5 Hz. 
 
The primary purpose of the exercise is to test the repeater capability to handle traffic. The secondary purpose is to practice recording transmitted data. The following information will be collected:
 
    1. Your call.
 
    2. Your home station 6 digit grid square. Example: my grid square is CN97AP.
 
    3. Your home station zip code. Example: my zip code is 98014.
 
    3. Transceiver information
        Make: Example: my rig is an Icom.
        Model: Example: the model is the IC 9700.
 
    4. How much power are you using. Example: I am running 50 watts.
 
I suggest you make a work aid to help you record this information. I will ask some stations to repeat the information that you record.
 
Thanks to Paul, W7PFB, for suggesting this exercise. It will be good to determine how the new Carnation repeater will function under a heavy load.
 
See you after the regular net concludes. I will be the net control and we will start the exercise on the Cougar repeater, 441.825 MHz, plus 5 MHz, tone 103.5 Hz, then switch to the Carnation repeater.
 
73,

I don’t think you can wear “Greg” after labor day. Or was that Memorial Day? I cant recall but I know its a faux pas to wear Greg at certain times of the year…

 

So given that Im not clear on the proper use of Greg, I prefer to stay away from Greg as it clashes with most of my wardrobe…. I Vote for Dark Blue

My son Greg is sort of a caucasian pink color.  Is that the color we’re voting for if we pick ‘Greg’, or is it actually a typo and we’d be voting for grey?

Please post a photo or link so we can all see it and even be a little jealous that we couldn’t thank fast enough J

 

It’s said “there ain’t no free lunch” but at least we can know “there can be a free Midland Weather Alert Radio” if we think fast enough and find where on the screen the next time.

Re: RT Systems

Robin WA7CPA
 

Rowland,
I'm the biggest proponent for knowing field programming you will find. When I looked at the number of radios I need to get ready giving in to software makes the most sense.

What Kathy and I do is have the programming steps printed out on a small card and attached to the radio.  Also have them in my cell phone.  RT systems is a great product and I have it for all my HTs.  However it does no good in the field if you have to program another simplex or repeater on the go.

There are listings for many of those procedures on the io site.


Thanks,

Rowland

I just broke down and purchased the cable and software for programming 3 of my 5 types of HT radios. You sold me, Guys. It is like most things, a time vs money problem. This does not preclude me from learning to be a quick field programmer for all brands of radios I own. But, the goal is to be READY ASAP. And, there is a lot of other stuff I would rather do with my time. 

Thanks and 73,
