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.

Ham Radio class question

Cody
 

Question. 
Ham Radio 2.0 on youtube has technician class and general class online in 3 parts on youtube. Is it possible to do a class like that here like their doing at the career center, but also post YouTube video of the class. I mean be another grate resource an not just few people but have more class resources out theie. If anyone did have the video equipment it wonuldent be that hard to record. Just thinking. 
But anyways figured I send this out.

Cody,
I like the way you think, but I'm not sure it's practical.  There would be permissions issues to have a class recorded at the Career Center, which is Columbia Public Schools property.  And one of the goals, as I understand it, is that Jim and Myron are there to answer questions and do immediate "Elmering" with the students.  You just can't get the one-on-one face time on YouTube that these guys put into their class.  That interpersonal connection is what creates and builds relationship and interest in the craft, which I believe was their goal from the beginning.

That's not to say that there wouldn't be value in having something like that available, but it sounds like HR2.0 already has that going on.  Is there something missing from their videos that you think our local instructors could add?

Re: Ham Radio class question

I honestly don’t know.  I know im using the General class and QRZ as a place to learn an understand.  Think it’s a grate start an then ask questions.  The way they explain things is very benifical.  I Know they been talking about doing an Extra Class too.  Just I use youtube a lot to learn different things.  So be cool if one day down the road. But o well.  I will be able to explain more later.  I think what you all talk about at the last grpup with Elmering is good.  But this could also just be others get to see their faces an see the instructor.  Some people have different learning styles.  So with that said you never know, one might not work very well with a person learning, someone else might.  You know how it is.  The General class im watching I learned a lot, but the 2nd instructor you could tell he was new.  But the first instructor he been doing it for years an had very good knologe.  Put his input on his excperince but also look like he been teaching awhile.  All I can say is the more education videos out their the better.  I know their been some ham things or videos by other hams I had a hard time sitting throught but others learned so much.   Haha but anyways im out.

It might be a short stay at Chesterfield Mall.  The last time I was in there, it was a ghost town.  If you're at all familiar with the mall's layout, the fact that there were 1 or 2 shops open in each wing is pretty indicative of the current status of that mall.  The only way I can see them justifying keeping the doors open is if the building is paid for and The Cheesecake Factory and movie theater are covering the operating costs for the mall.

Re: Ham Radio class question

Cody,

Thanks for the good questions and suggestions, and responses from others.

Setting aside the real problem of getting permission from Columbia Public Schools to video a whole course, I hesitate to video our Technician class because it is very interactive with members of the class, as contrasted to a scripted and efficient video production, like some ham radio instruction courses on YouTube.  In our advice sheet for the first class, we recommend the best of the practice tests and one or two of the instructional series videos.  We also use selected short YouTube videos in class, using the classroom PC to Projector setup.

Each class is topically structured (currently in line with Gordon West's Technician class study manual readings).   But. we have  a lot of interaction with class members.  We encourage interrupting questions and work as much as possible in an Elmer/mentor style.  Every class is different, depending on who is in it.

One other source for taking Amateur radio on line test.    This site tracks your performance and will auto adjust your test question based on what you have missed.     It’s worth the few dollars it cost.  
Take a look, You May like how this program follows your test results.    Corey
