Subject: [SnoVARC] Cougar repeater
 
All:
I, as well as a couple of others, have been seeing an occasional drop in signal strength from the cougar repeater.  It will be full strength on the s meter then drop down to 1 to 2 bars for a time then go back to full strength.  Not just my radio but others at the same time.
Has anyone else seen this behavior and is it a repeater transmitter problem?

Just asking.

Android APRS app?

Does anyone use or know of an APRS app for use without needing radio?

Thanks,

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,

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.

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?
