It's that time again for Winlink Wednesday! As I'm preparing for the Winlink  presentation at the Cowtown Hamfest this weekend, it got me thinking about Hamfests in general. So, for the question this week, if you have been to a Hamfest, what is the best deal you've been able to make? Let me know in the comments.


Other instructions:

Use the "Winlink Check In" template when checking in.  As a reminder, to use the template, when the New Message screen is opened, click on the menu items Select Template --> Standard Templates --> GENERAL Forms --> Winlink Check In.txt. If you do not find the template, you may have an older version of the templates. You can find the download from the Winlink.org web site. The instructions are in the ReadMe.txt file from the download site.

Make sure in the Send To box to put my call sign, KF5VO.

In the location box, put the name of your city/town, and which gateway you're connecting through (if known).

IF YOU ARE USING SOMETHING OTHER THAN WINLINK TO CHECK IN:
In the body of the message, place the following information separated by a tab (not just spaces). This is how the information is sent if you are using the Winlink form. It makes it much easier for me to tally the results.

date time <tab> call sign <tab> call sign <tab> location <tab> ham band <tab> session type

This Wednesday is Elvis's birthday! So, in honor of the king, let me know your favorite Elvis Presley song. You may not be "a fan", but everyone has at least one song that's their favorite.

Rockwall ARISS Status Update

K5TCJ
 

Steve Orr W5SO et. al. have organized an ISS / school contact that is scheduled for the week of February 24th.

With the assistance of a lot of folks, the plan and needed equipment is coming together.

The primary station is ready, but the secondary station needs help.

ARISS specifications call for 100 Watts on the uplink.  The rig currently slated for the secondary station is a 50 Watt rig.

 

To meet this specification, they still need to secure the loan of the following equipment:

 

A 2 meter FM 100 Watt capable rig, or a power amp capable of 100 Watts output, and

2 2 meter receive pre-amps.

 

If you’ve got these items and can loan them for this event, you will be contributing to a valuable learning experience and the introduction of Ham Radio to the next generation of operators.

 

If you can help, please contact Steve Orr W5SO at skworr@...

 

Please pass this on to other reflectors, to give this request a wider distribution.

 

Thanks and 73,

 

Tim Johnson - K5TCJ

Plano Amateur Radio Klub - VP.

Happy New Decade!

Happy New Decade!

New Year’s Day provides us an opportunity to reassess our lives. But New Decade’s Day is a special day that reminds us to not just evaluate where we want to be after a year, but where we need to be in ten years.

So… in that vein, where will Amateur Radio be in ten years? I ask because it is important to remind ourselves what it will be like when the power goes out and communications systems are dark. We, as a society, have continued to rapidly adopt technology in such a way that we are entirely dependent on it. Take the smartphone; it is everywhere. We can answer our front door, turn on the lights, start our vehicle and talk to our friends at the touch of a few virtual buttons. It’s so easy that we have forgotten how to fend for ourselves without technology.

Remember paper maps? How many of us can remember walking into a gas station and seeing a rack of a myriad of maps just inside the door? Do we even remember how to use; how to navigate; fold them? (Truth be told, folding a map is an engineering feat!)

Communications is the bedrock of society. We must have multiple ways to talk and convey news and information. Smart Phones and the Internet cannot be allowed to become our only way to exchange ideas and stay informed. Amateur Radio is a global resource for communicating, providing help and hope to all in need. Let’s strive to continue to improve our hobby; get better at communicating on the radio; work together more closely to develop strong teamwork skills; be more professional when we are working with our served agencies, partners and communities; and most importantly, enjoy and participate more in this hobby that is the very bedrock of civilization. There will be a day when Amateur Radio is the only way to communicate – let's be ready!

73 and Best Wishes to You and your Family and Friends for a Prosperous New Decade!

Hope everyone will have a happy New Year. Speaking of New Years, what are some of your goals, or resolutions, for 2020? Let me know in the comments for this week's check-in. One of my HAM related goals is the same as the past three years, but this year I have a plan for it. For the past three years, I've been saying that I want to learn CW. I finally signed up for a class through CW Academy, and it starts in January. Not HAM radio related, I'm still working on a goal from 2013. What was it? Simple, really. It was to use an entire tube of chap stick before losing it. Since I don't use it every day, it's lasted quite a while.

Merry Christmas! The question/comment today assumes that you will be checking in on Wednesday, some time during the day. If you don't check-in, I totally understand. Since Christmas is more about giving than receiving, I would like to know the best moment you've had (either this year or previously) concerning giving a gift. Let me know in the comments.

Sorry about not sending the notice out yesterday. My family and I were driving around looking at the Christmas decorations around town. That got me to thinking about a question for this week's net. What is the most memorable decoration that either your house has had on it (as adult or kid), or, which is the most memorable decorated house that you have seen?

we normally use the full name the first time in an article and put the acronym letters in parentheses immediately following first use then use the acronym freely in the rest of the article. Coronal Mass Ejection (CME) for instance any place CME is mentioned is mentioned adter first use. Check a Style Guide for proper use or the internet. rmj

John,

Thanks for the Note,  yes if I stopped publishing it
I am sure I would get lots of chatter :)

Maybe I need to start thinking outside the box
make the newsletter fun, read it find a hidden Gem
and gain a prize or something along those lines

Your WinLink idea has been great and while I have failed to "Check in" in the last two sessions
I really really appreciate the method you came up with on encouraging use of a vital ECOMM
tool on a weekly basis

My best to you and yours for the Holidays!

I know how you feel about wondering if anyone reads the thing. I went through the same thing. A few years ago after a field day event, I volunteered to send out a monthly e-mail using Winlink to people in our club so their Winlink accounts would stay active. After about a year or two, I was wondering if anyone was reading those, since no one responded. That's when I came up with the idea for a Winlink net. I decided to shift the tables to where they were e-mailing me.

Hang in there. Don't feel too frustrated with lack of responses for the newsletter. I have a feeling if you stopped, then you would hear about it.

ARRL NTX STM Report - November 2019

Aaron Hulett | K8AMH
 

Attaching our November 2019 ARRL NTX Section Traffic Report. You can find a lot of this information on the statistics page, along with some new tables I’ve recently added. The statistics page is updated in real time as I receive reports, so on January 1 I expect the “Last month” charts zero out and then update with data as December reports come in. https://www.k8amh.com/ntx-traffic-statistics/

 

Is this information easy to review and understand? Wish I had more data, or had something a little clearer? Let me know if you have any questions/feedback.

 

Happy holidays everyone!

 

73,

Aaron | K8AMH

How the link was made is rather odd. I pulled it apart. This is where it should be going, I believe.

I don’t have a Facebook account, does that mean I can not get the newsletter?  There is nothing to open. When I clink the “December 2019 Newsletter link it goes to a log into your Facebook account to share screen.  There is no newsletter.
