K0SI DMR Repeater Change

Chris Swisher
 

After a user chose not to follow a guideline posted at K0SI.net for the DMR repeater, effective immediately the following talkgroups are not available on the K0SI DMR repeater system: World Wide (91), USA Bridge (3100), Tac310, Tac311, Tac312, Tac313, Tac314, Tac315, Tac316, Tac317, Tac318 and Tac319. These groups have been identified as not being utilized in an appropriate manner by the repeater trustee.

I had hoped to deal with users on an individual basis when the user was not following the group guidelines, but the lack of contact information for non-member users passing through central Missouri have prompted this change. Remember: DO NOT just bring up a talk group to listen. If you key up a talk group it has to be with the intention to have a conversation. If you do not hear a conversation worth joining, or cannot raise a conversation by identifying, then let the timer expire and reset the time slot.

The use of any CMRA repeater or system should be for the enjoyment of all radio amateurs and members of the CMRA.

If you have questions or comments, please contact me at K0PHP@... or (573)228-0240. Thanks!

John Beatty
 


There will be some opportunities coming up in the Columbia area to listen..here are the times.

Aug 3 - 9:59PM (very good sighting)

SSTV Event planned for Early August
ARISS News Release                                                                                                      
July 30, 2019

ARISS plans to celebrate the life and accomplishments of astronaut, scientist and ham radio pioneer Owen Garriott with a commemorative SSTV event featuring images from Garriott’s work with ham radio during his missions in space. This event is currently scheduled to begin on August 1 at 09:40 UTC and ends at 18:15 UTC on August 4. Please make note that the content of these upcoming SSTV transmissions may change. An update is expected after Friday, July 26 as to what the image content will be for the August 1-4 dates. If this change takes place, the Owen Garriott image transmissions will be postponed until another event can be scheduled toward the end of August.
 
Transmissions will be sent at 145.800 MHz FM in the SSTV mode PD-120. Once received, images can be posted and viewed by the public at http://www.spaceflightsoftware.com/ARISS_SSTV/index.php and you can receive a special SSTV ARISS Award for posting your image. See https://ariss.pzk.org.pl/sstv/ for details. Also for simplicity, we have added a new information tab for SSTV events, under the General Contacts pulldown menu at www.ariss.org . The latest updates can also be found at the ARISS Facebook site Amateur Radio On The International Space Station (ARISS) and on Twitter @ ARISS_status.

Amateur Radio Traffic Handling for New (and not so new) Hams

Chris Swisher
 

I would like to invite all members of the CMRA and surrounding amateur radio operators to join me Wednesday nights on 146.76 (-600) PL 127.3 for a training opportunity on formal message handling. Have you ever wondered how a radiogram is composed, transmitted or received? How radiograms find their way across the continent (and world) to people who may or may not be hams? Why does the structure of a message promote error free exchange? The answers to these and other obscure facts will be presented in sessions after the weekly net on the Columbia repeater on a weekly basis. If you can participate, there will be certificates awarded to those who demonstrate a knowledge, skills and aptitude for providing a critical public service in Central Missouri. The sessions will be limited to thirty minutes, and questions and comments are encouraged. Please join us this Wednesday for an introduction and explanation of the coming (free) class.

Trailer Roof Repsirs

Chris Swisher
 

I have prepped by scraping and sanding the side of the trailer that was leaking. I applied the sealing tape per the instructions.  I will schedule a time to pull the trailer out to do the left side in the near future. I like this approach, I anticipate a good seal has been obtained.

Interesting.  What band do they typically transmit on?

I had no idea this was going on.  Wish I'd heard of it sooner.

They try 20 first and sometimes 40 Gary.  If you search for Last Man Standing on Facebook tomorrow he says he will post a frequency.

Boone County MO ARES SET 2019

Bill McFarland - N0AXZ
 

Boone County MO ARES SET 2019

 

Boone County ARES (BCARES) in conjunction with Boone County Office of Emergency Management (OEM) will hold the annual Simulated Emergency Test (SET) on November 9, 2019, 10:00 AM to Noon.

 

Objectives for this year’s exercise:

  1. Assess coverage and operation of the 146.610 MHz repeater with respect to OEM specified shelters across the county.
  2. Assess fill-in coverage of the county using 444.175 MHz repeater.
  3. Assess Winlink application email by RF from mobile operations.
    1. Utilizing Forms in Winlink Express
    2. Attaching files for delivery via Winlink
  4. Practice sending formal traffic via voice utilizing message formats from Radiogram and ICS213 forms.
  5. Track mobiles utilizing APRS.
  6. Exercise the WX0BC radio capacity in the Boone County Emergency Communications Center (ECC).
  7. Experiment with sending images via RF primarily SSTV.

 

OEM has identified 43 Red Cross sanctioned potential shelters across the county. You will be deployed to one or more of these locations where you will find a “data packet” with data and instructions for your traffic from that shelter. We will not be entering any shelters and expect your operations to be all from your mobile, or your choice of portable set-up in the parking lot of your shelter.

 

All amateur radio operators are encouraged to participate, and since we will primarily be on VHF/UHF frequencies all classes of operators will be welcomed.

 

November 9 may seem far off in the future, but you may need time to get the digital modes set-up on your VHF/UHF radio and all the right cables, etc. To this end, we will be providing some training sessions near the end of October to get your rigs and computers ready to go. Check out the ongoing training on passing message traffic via the Radiogram being offered immediately after the Wednesday night net, 146.760.

 

Please email me if you are planning on doing the SET this year, so I can assign everyone to an appropriate shelter(s).

Watch spark gap xmitters operate

Hi

Browse to youtube and search for "The Antique Wireless Museum - Ham Nation 415". Start looking at ~35:00 or so if you have never seen a spark gap transmitter operate.

Thank you, Fred. This is great news for those of us familiar with the old location . Better entry and parking. Also shorter drive.
