Re: DMR HTs

In WW2 portable radios were huge.  Back packs even.  They were called Walkie Talkies because you could sort of walk with one.  Later came the lunchbox size so you could still ealk snd talk.  Handi talkies because you could hold one in your hand.  My first was a Motorola HT 200.  About size and wright of a brick.
Cheers.

That is not a stupid question. It refers to some history of radio. HT is short for “handy talkie”.  If memory serves me, it was part of a sales pitch for handheld radios when they first became practical and the name stuck. Some of the others may know more details.

Group,
Have you heard of Winlink Wednesdays?
I find that it has been going on for several years in some places. I thought we should try it our for our would be Winlink users.

It's purpose is to give the Winlink user a chance to practice and keep your Winlink operation going. If you are like me, I forget how to do something when I don't do it after a time (like a couple of days sometimes). Winlink Express software is updated regularly and the forms in the Templates section are updated often. You have to open Winlink Express to get these updates.

So I am asking the Winlink users to "check-in" to the Winlink Wednesday net with WX0BC.  That means for you to send a Winlink message to WX0BC, any time on Wednesday. The message should be the Winlink Check-in form found under Templates: Standard: General:. 

You can send the message anyway you like to get to the Winlink system. Locally, we have K0SI-10 (VHF-Packet), or on HF (K0SI 80M or 40M Ardop), or you can use any RMS gateway you can get to. And if you have trouble getting the message out RF, you can even use Telnet. Just address it to WX0BC.

On Thursday I will send a summary of our check-ins to the those whose check-ins I received at WX0BC. Some Winlink Wednesday nets have grown to more than 100 check-ins. I am NOT wanting that, just get the Central Missouri Winlnk users a chance to practice, so if we get a disaster that asks us to send data via Winlink we will be ready.

Re: How many HTs?

Gary Vaught - W9TIG
 

Thanks for all of the answers!

I'm currently sitting on my AnyTone D868-UV, my Yaesu FT-60, and a BaoFeng BF-F8HP.  All are dual-band, as most HTs are these days.  The AnyTone and the BaoFeng are both dual monitor.

I'm thinking that I can setup the Yaesu for the 61 repeater, the BaoFeng for the 76 repeater and monitor the 155 "open" transmissions or a weather alert freq, and have the AnyTone set for a couple of DMR channels that I haven't quite nailed down, as yet.  This would allow me to cover all of the bases (that I'm invested in) with my HTs.  I had thought that maybe it was a bit silly to have 3 at one time, but I'm beginning to see that isn't the case.

Thanks, Ralph! I feel a bit more comfortable about having more than I can

I doubt that I'll get more anytime soon, but at least I can get these setup

Re: CMRA Christmas Party Plans

Gary Vaught - W9TIG
 

I agree with Bill, HyVee has been good to us in the past. I enjoyed my time at last year's event, but it was a bit less than ideal with them (OG) being unprepared to deal with us. Then we were all split up into separate tables that made a challenge of socializing outside of two or three other people.
