Bill, I occasionally use Winlink, and I make many mistakes.  But if I can participate without interfering with others, I would like to have a go at it, at least to monitor.

Group,

Our annual Simulated Emergency Test (SET) will be held in conjunction with the Boone County Office of Emergency Management (OEM) on November 14. Also the nation-wide Red Cross EmComm drill will be going on that day.

This year there will be an option of operating from your home QTH, due to COVID restrictions. We will be emphasizing the use of Winlink for sending forms. Operation from a Red Cross designated shelter will be, as in the past,  our other option. Those operators will not be inside the shelter building, or interacting with any shelter volunteers. (The buildings will likely be locked) We will be operating mobile, or portable (fixed antenna) from the parking lots.

So far I have the following volunteers:

AA0B, AC0MP, AD0ZE, K0MIZ, K0PHP, KC0EZE, KE0BTC, KE5BTC, N0AXZ, N0OFJ, NO0I, WD6BGN, W0TES.

If you have a couple hours on Saturday morning, November 14, a VHF/UHF radio, and an interest in participating with other hams in practicing procedures we might want to use in responding to emergencies in Boone County where our radio capabilities could be used, then we would like to have you join the exercise. But I need to have you "registered" into the exercise so I can plan what you will need to do. If you have never used Winlink (email by radio) we would like to help you get started with this mode. If you have packet radio, or FLdigi experience working at your station, then you have the hardware needed to get into the Winlink system. We could offer a Zoom training session in the near future if there seems to be a need. If you choose to operate from home, then we would like to use that event to move you to getting a true emergency power capability so we can report all stations were on emergency power. (You could do this by operating from your car/truck in your driveway, if nothing else:)

So I am hoping to get a few more volunteers for the 2020 SET. Let me know if you can "play". After this week, I will just be communicating plans, etc. with the interest group only, so as not to clog up this email reflector.

Stay safe, 73,

[MMARC] SUNDAY PEANUT POWER SPRINT

Gary Vaught - W9TIG
 

Passing this along.  I have signed up with MMARC.

As most of you don't know, and maybe aren't too concerned, we are purchasing a house in Jefferson City and will be relocating, soon.  Once I finish my (unrelated) classes, I should be able to be back OTA and checking in on nets.  I hope to get a couple of 2m antennae on a mast and hopefully be able to hit K0SI and the Fulton repeater and operate a base station that can reach out from down there.  I'm also looking to get my first HF antenna up down there, to facilitate getting my HF rig OTA.  

Hope everyone is doing well and staying safe.  I know Swisher takes good care of me when I'm on the job.

Re: MJEF and K0SI-10

Ryan Raney
 

Hi Bill, 

No, both MJEF and MMJY are unreliable for me. Both send a disconnect packet to K0SI-10 from "KE5SUI-15" which I did not send. 

Sometimes, everything is fine. Most times it fails in the middle of a transfer with my winlink client sitting there waiting for a response which will never come because MMJY or MJEF have sent a disconnect command to K0SI-10.

If i just do simple packet connections to KE5SUI-14 through MMJY/MMJY6/MJEF6/MJEF I have no problems, but with winlink MJEF and MMJY send a disconnect command to K0SI-10 or KE5SUI-10.

ISS FM Repeater opportunity today and tomorrow - Columbia

John Beatty
 

Looks like there may be an opportunity to work the new FM repeater on the International Space Station tonight and tomorrow night.   

Here's the configuration for your radio: 
Downlink: 437.800 (+/- doppler)
Uplink: 145.990 **tone** 67.0hz

Columbia favorable passes:
Saturday:   8:00PM-8:07PM     60 deg.
Sunday:     7:13PM-7:20PM      78 deg.

I'm going to give it shot with my vertical and 10 watts.  Not ideal, but you never know. 

Here's a YouTube video that is helpful:

MJEF and K0SI-10

Bill McFarland - N0AXZ
 

Ryan, et al.
My simple test results:
Using 5W from home I can hit K0SI-10 directly and via MNJY. All is good, except of course via MNJY is about 3x slower.

At 5W via MJEF I got hung up in a loop from MJEF to K0SI and something created disconnect after much time of back and forth packets. MJEF's signal strength here was over S9. K0SI-10 also over S9 but the sound of the tones is slightly different so you can tell by listening which node is transmitting, 

At 35W via MJEF the first time was no disconnect, but a halt in valid traffic and Winlink Express just waiting after the F> command. Looking at K0SI-10 on the remote desktop showed that K0SI-10 had disconnected.
MJEF was still trying to send a packet.

Second trial, about 2 minutes later, MJEF at 35W sent all traffic exactly as MNJY had done, and mail was delivered.

I don't know if this helps you much, but I think it says that K0SI-10 and MNJY are working as expected, and MJEF is on the edge.

I can hit your BPQ well and tried leaving you a message, but forgot (AGAIN) how to end the message, then saw too late the reference to "/ex".
Will try that later today.

Can you try to connect to it via winlink express and let me know if it disconnects prematurely for you? Instructions for K0SI-10 are below, substitute KE5SUI-10 to test my node. They're both behaving the same for me so use either one. 

 

To send your winlink packets through MMJY you'll have to change your connection type from direct to script. Then the line below will no longer be greyed out. Next click add script. A new window will pop up, this is where we'll set up the connection script to jump through the node. Go ahead and name the script something memorable like K0SI-10 via MMJY. Next in the body of the script enter the following:

 

C MMJY

CONN

C K0SI-10

CONN

 

Now click save. Make sure your new script is selected in the connection script drop-down and click start. 

 

Once you're done with the test remember to set your connection mode back to direct or you will always go through MMJY, which I don't advise unless you have to.

Subject: Re: [CMRA] K0SI packet down?

 

Hi all,

Sorry to keep bringing this up but it seems like the problem isn't with K0SI-10, it may be with MMJY or MJEF. I went through the trouble to configure my bpq node as a RMS gateway on KE5SUI-10, and I have the same trouble connecting to it through MMJY or MJEF. For some reason MMJY and MJEF are both sending disconnect packets that I didn't tell them to before the transaction is complete.

If anyone has an intimate knowledge of packet radio I'd love to get their thoughts on the logs that have been posted in this thread, or some troubleshooting steps/ideal winlink settings. If anyone else can test connecting to K0SI-10 or KE5SUI-10 via MMJY or MJEF on 145.070 (instructions on how to do that also in this thread) to see if they have the same problems I'd also appreciate that as it could help narrow down if it's just me or not. 

Sorry for any unnecessary trips to the K0SI-10 gateway anyone may have taken.

Ryan, here’s the replay text.  I’m still a novice at this.  I only attempted to connect to your WINLINK. Apparently there was nothing for me (no mail), then it begins the disconnect sequence (apparently).  If I understand everything, this session was expected results.  But I just don’t know

Can you try to connect to it via winlink express and let me know if it disconnects prematurely for you? Instructions for K0SI-10 are below, substitute KE5SUI-10 to test my node. They're both behaving the same for me so use either one. 

 

To send your winlink packets through MMJY you'll have to change your connection type from direct to script. Then the line below will no longer be greyed out. Next click add script. A new window will pop up, this is where we'll set up the connection script to jump through the node. Go ahead and name the script something memorable like K0SI-10 via MMJY. Next in the body of the script enter the following:

 

C MMJY

CONN

C K0SI-10

CONN

 

Now click save. Make sure your new script is selected in the connection script drop-down and click start. 

 

Once you're done with the test remember to set your connection mode back to direct or you will always go through MMJY, which I don't advise unless you have to.

Hi John,

 

Did you tell it to disconnect or did it do it prematurely on it's own?
