Group,
No better time while we are getting 7 - 12" of snow, than to remind you (announced at the last two club meetings) of the Winter Field Day (WFD) January 26 1:00 PM on-the-air time. I went out to Cosmo park yesterday morning about 10:00 when it was 22 degrees and it was too cold, even with a nice sun and not much wind. Went back about 12:00 when it was over 32 degrees and I think we can handle that. So since we are having our snow this weekend we will plan to JUST DO IT. But with a temp go-no-go threshold or 32 F.

So come with your HF go kits, including power and antennas, or come to see and play with others' toys in the winter time OUTDOORS. We will be on the South West corner of Cosmo Park. Go in the main entrance, go 270 degrees around the round-about and follow the road to the SW end. Don't forget a chair and your own snacks (maybe enough to share). No alcohol in city parks. I'll be there about 10:00 to get some stuff set up. We won't operate after dark, too DARK. (Can you operate your radio with gloves on? I couldn't push the power button on my HT until I took off one glove!)

Please email me back if you can plan to participate, so that if there no more than me not smart enough to come in out of the cold, I will not have to go out there either!

Then, in February we will try a new exercise called the COMO White-OUT, kind of like tonight, except we will pretend that we have all lost commercial power, and OEM needs some first hand reports on how bad it is around the county. You will need to use your emergency power backup for VHF/UHF operation with out commercial power. We would also like to see pictures! This all from your own home, or where ever you might want to do it, I just won't ask you to go to a particular place and report. There will be too much pretend ice and snow to ask you to get out. BUT YOU CAN'T PLAY IF YOU ARE NOT ON EMERGENCY POWER (EP). HTs and mobiles count as EP, if you can't get a storage battery or generator going by test time. We will use the 61 repeater which has an EP by generator (it won't really be on that generator, but it could be!), and the Airport UHF repeater, since it may have some battery back up, and maybe it is far enough out of town, that it could have not lost Commercial power.

So the objectives of the exercise are:
1. A little pressure to get you to go ahead and get EP going for your home/shack. Or at least an outside antenna for your HT!
2. Think about sending pictures by radio. Some suggestions are MMSSTV, attaching files to a Winlink message. (a little pressure to get you on Winlink from home!). maybe MESH networks, and what you might think of and work out before February BCARES meeting. How will you get the picture from your camera (smart phone) to the PC, or radio? Do you have an USB camera for your PC. Can you get that outside to take a picture of the fallen trees and downed power lines?

We will hold this exercise on February 16 at 10:00 AM. More details at the club meetings in February and by email as we go.

Let me know if you are in for the White-out.

FYI: More on Ballooning and Ham Radio

John W. Smith
 

Ham Talk Live did another show on ballooning, but this time it's about small balloons. Here's the relevant info from the show description.

"Bill Brown, WB8ELK, the father of high altitude ballooning is here to take your questions about pico ballooning. Bill will talk about what the differences are with pico balloons, and how to do a launch."

Party-type balloons have been sent up to 42,000 feet and have spent weeks and months going around the world. Payloads can be tracked with APRS. The technology used is amazing.

Apparently this has been good for schools doing STEM classes, and this can get kids interested in ham radio.

Here's the direct link to the podcast.

Re: Net check-in failure

Gary Vaught - W9TIG
 

Thanks, Mike.  Good advice.

I had removed the walls, but getting the trees out of the way is going to take a bit more than the 30' mast I was intending to put up.  I think my first attempt might be to put up the "modified" 2m quarter-wave ground plane antenna I built a couple of years ago, at about 4-5m above grade, and see how that works with my base.  If that goes well, I may try it with my HT, just to see.

4 or 5 watts out with a good antenna that has 3db to 6db gain and getting walls and trees out of the way can get you to the horizon 22 miles away with only about 30 to 50 bucks invested.

Re: Net check-in failure

Gary Vaught - W9TIG
 

I think location was about 85-90% of my issue.  Instead of sitting on top of a clear hill, with a fairly clear line-of-sight to downtown, I am now in something of a depression with what I like to call "mature VHF/UHF sponges."  Lots of mature greenery around my new place, especially the neighbor's 30'+ tall pine trees that are almost directly between me and campus.  Add to that the mesh of overhead shielding the various utilities and service providers have brought into the neighborhood and I'm not surprised that my little 5W HT didn't reach out.  Even with the augmented antenna.  

I'll keep listening to the net, check in when I can, and press on with pursuing getting an antenna on my 2m "base" station.

Ham Radio and High Altitude Ballooning

John W. Smith
 

In times past club members and others have had an interest in sending up balloons for things related to ham radio. For anyone who might be interested now, there's an overview of high altitude ballooning and pseudo-satellites in this week's Ham Talk Live podcast.

Here's the direct link to the audio.

Chris, et al.
I was talking with Jeff Carlyle, KD0QCN, EC of Audrain last Saturday, and found that he is working in the wirless internet industry and their company is switching out some Ubiquity gear. He is going to see if the company could give us some good deals on their used wireless equipment which he was showing me example units that he thought was ham-firmware friendly. Antennas beyond the access point units were still an issue. He is suspecting 2 - 5 miles without better antennas. 
Will keep all posted on the possibilities here.
