Re: Yaesu FT 847 Repair Question

Jon Cole
 

I bought a dummy load (good long term investment) and hooked up my radio to it in various configurations.  It transmits measurable power on HF (160m-10m) only in FM mode.  In all other modes (SSB, AM, CW) it is barely discernable on the needle.  All the modes work properly on 6m, 2m and 70cm.

While doing some reading, I am also due to replace the memory backup battery as well.

Jon, I have used a repair service in Texas for my Yaesu that I can recommend if you want.

Hook a dummy load to the HF SO-239 and see if it heats up when you try to transmit in AM or CW.  Sorry, but I still have not found mine.

Hello all,

I discovered recently that my Yaesu FT 847 is not working properly on the HF bands.  On AM or SSB or CW it folds back to zero power output, but on FM it transmits the appropriate amount of power?  I know there are a few of these radios out there, so I'm wondering if anybody has any answers and/or contact information for a good repair facility.  I have not tried resetting the CPU / memory yet, but I will do that if needed.

Thanks.

Re: Mesh networking system

Rob Grimmett
 

Depending on which equipment the others have it could be a very simple setup.  Rpis have a decent ability to operate in the normal bands with hsmm-pi, and you can load all the software on each one.  You can link the asterisk servers for failover voice and teamtalk at the time of me writing this makes it hard to link multiple servers together, however that hasn't stopped me yet from doing things in a fashion they were never intended to.  Team talk give good voice and video over mesh as well as allowing a second route for internet in so think echoing for mesh almost.  I'm still working on a way to interconnect a mesh setup on a PC with an aredn node.  Once that happens, then so much can be done.   I look forward to watching and helping it grown as much as i can.  It's one of the things i miss from.back home.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Re: Mesh networking system

Rob Grimmett
 

I was part of the central as mesh group for a while. Almost near the start.  Are. You guys using ubiquiti units and are you looking for help in a larger picture system.  I'm in Columbia quite often with medical visits, but I'm sure i can get out there for other things.  I have a small system I'm working on with Rpis using the old hsmm-pi software.  Without an external dongle, its limited to the regular channels at the moment, however it does allow you to have an all in one setup.(looking at a no licence setup for people to become involved in a city wide emergency notification mesh.  ). I do have quite a bit of experience in the setup and system design for the mesh networks so whatever knowledge i can offer is there.  I have a ubiquiti m2 titanium bullet as well as a 2.4ghz air grid.  Both with the latest aredn software.   However in expansion of the mesh net, we found that tunnels to other cities made it easier to build the network. As new members came in on the new single node, it got the circle of links closer and closer to the original net.  So from mesa to phx about 80 miles or so, in the near future, based on recent emails in the group they will be able to close the gap and make all mesh connections.  The phone system works well with them and we incorporated teamtalk as well.  Mesh chat can run direct on the ubiquiti units which is nice.  But I'm guessing you guys already knew that.    I have the ability to tunnel into that mesh as well.  Which at times links to California where that group has a very large group.   

At one time i was working on a way to connect a mesh unit to packet radio.  And from here i know i can reach Columbia with the right antenna and the right power.  So many different ways to interconnect for emergency traffic.

We are in the initial stages of growing our mesh capabilities. I have a 2.4 node on 24/7 at 60 feet AGL from my QTH, with a tunnel to New Jersey. A Raspberry Pi is running meshchat and a IP telephone server. A few other operators have purchased hardware, but we haven't spent a lot of time during the winter to link them. FYI, I am up on -2 at 10MHz bandwidth, but New Florence is way too far away to attempt to link them over RF. We are using the AREDN software to this point.

Re: ARRL Membership dates

Just an FYI for anyone looking at this in the future - you can go to the ARRL site and under the Membership "tab", you can find a link in the left Nav panel that says "Membership Certificate" and generate a PDF which will state that you are "possessing until February 28, 2019 all the privileges of Full membership, as defined in the By-Laws"

It's not quite following the advice given in previous replies to this post, but it was the only thing that worked for me. And it appears that my membership expires today.
