Station tones are sent over the internet.

AFAIK they don't use tone-outs in King County.  That's very old technology and not used in many places any more. Some places in the world use POCSAG but you'd have to use other software to decode it and scan the messages. 

I know of no way to filter calls for Duvall on the scanner itself. :-/  If anyone else knows differently, please pass the info along!

Jim Myers memorial

Tom WA7TBP
 

Hello everyone:

I have good news and bad news to share. The good news is that the Myer family will be having a memorial for Jim. The bad news is that the venue is small and attendance has to be limited. In addition, the family is insisting all attendees be vaccinated. Jo-Anne has invited myself, Ralph and Paul to attend. She is sorry that more SNOVARC folks are not able to attend, and hopes that you will understand.
 
In my communication with Jo-Anne, I explained that we totally understand the conditions, and that SNOVARC wishes the whole family well.
 
If you have any questions, please e-mail me or call.
 
73,
 
Tom, WA7TBP

That is one thing I was taught early on in my career. Before you go nuts troubleshooting an electronic problem in any device check the power source (cord). 


Thanks,

My W7PFB-10 VHF Winlink RMS station has been down for some unknown (but short) time.  Noticed it this morning because the radio was cycling on and off and on and off because the backup battery was down to about 10.5 volts.

So I proceeded to diagnose the problem.  First it looked like the battery had a short and was pulling everything down, but removing the battery didn’t help. 

Next step, maybe the power supply failed.  Sure enough, the pilot light is not on.  Probably a fuse, right?  So I pull the PS, hook it up to a 120v outlet on my test bench, it tests fine.  Hmm.  This is weird.

So I figure, maybe I pulled the power cord loose on the back of the PS.  Hook it back up, nope, no joy.  What COULD IT BE?

Then I noticed that the PDU is not powered.  Oh, no!  The PDU failed?  I am getting ready to remove the PDU and check it when I notice the entire rack has been shifted about 10 inches and pulled the power cord to the entire rack out of the wall.

Put the plug back in the wall, everything restarted.

Moral: check to make sure it’s still plugged in FIRST.

September 25th Tolt Dam annual evacuation drill is cancelled

Tom WA7TBP
 

Hello everyone.

It was decided by the City of Carnation to cancel the annual Tolt Dam evacuation drill due to concerns with COVID and school buildings being unavailable. There will be an online CDCCC event on October 16th that is being planned now. This event will replace the September 25th drill. I will provide more details in a future e-mail. 
 
Thank all of you that volunteered to help with comms and traffic/crowd management. If you have any questions, please contact me via e-mail of phone, 206-714-8646.

It is with great sadness that I pass along to a notice about the passing of Gary Haines.  For those of you who don't know Gary, he was a CDCCC Board member for a number of years, and also participated in the CERT, MRC and SnoVARC programs.  It is my understanding he has been ill for a while, but I am still sad to see him go.  He will be missed!
 
There is a notice about a funeral service listed below being held at the Novelty HIll Cemetery this Thursday.  I plan to attend, and maybe some of you will be able to do so as well.
 
Lisa and Tom - I thought you might like to share the news about his passing and service along to MRC and SnoVARC as he was most active in those groups.

Installed a KiwiSDR

Lou Giliberto (KD7HCW)
 

Got a KiwiSDR and put it up if anyone would like to play with it.

For anyone who doesn't know what this is, it's an SDR receiver (0-30Mhz) that people can listen to and control over the web.  This one allows 4 people to connect and listen to different frequencies concurrently.

If one goes to the main KiwiSDR site, there are ones from all around the world a person can listen to.   http://kiwisdr.com/public/
