  3. Guys lets put all mesh network work on this thread please. The following is from kieth redlands mesh network king. My son Bailey, KK6ORT, recently set up a new and very robust chat server on the mesh and is looking for people to come on over and give it a run for its money. The server is capable of pubic and private chat groups as well as file sharing, alerts, and more. It is currently residing on a Linux blade server operating on his mesh node at school. The server address is http://centdocker.local.mesh:1001/ from your local mesh connected device. There is also a tablet and smart phone app that works with it as well. Please share the link with others.

  8. ARES E-Letter Article: Thomas Fire Response Also Demonstrates Amateur Radio’s Social Media Value 01/05/2018 Santa Barbara Amateur Radio Club (SBARC) members kept a close watch on the Thomas Fire after it broke out in early December. Using a variety of the club’s analog and digital Amateur Radio assets, radio operators were able to observe fire-fighting efforts first hand and pass along immediate information, often before it was reported by official sources or by local news media. SBARC operates five communication sites in Santa Barbara County, including sites on Diablo Peak on the mostly uninhabited Santa Cruz Island, and on Santa Ynez Peak. “These two sites host [Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast] ADS-B receivers that are connected via a combination of amateur microwave IP links and mesh networking and were used to track and monitor airborne firefighting activities,” Levi Maaia, K6LCM, co-chair of SBARC’s Telecommunications Services Committee, told ARRL. Starting in mid-December, a round-the-clock emergency net convened on 2-meters, as commercial power for much of Santa Barbara County was cut and the fire descended on residential communities in Santa Barbara County, prompting multiple evacuation orders. With repeaters on generator power and many operators running on battery power, net traffic consisted of official information, including evacuation orders, live reports on the rapidly approaching fire line from operators who remained inside the mandatory evacuation area, related traffic about firefighting efforts, and wind and weather conditions. SBARC volunteers set up an ad hoc remote receiving station to stream live fire ground and air communications audio over the Internet and mesh network. As fire crews came off duty, one firefighter and Amateur Radio operator joined the net to offer a firsthand account of operations from an insider’s perspective. SBARC members also assisted visiting fire crew members with mobile radio antenna repairs in the field. Maaia said social media proved to be a valuable communication asset, as most official organizations such as incident command and emergency management agencies were disseminating official information via Twitter immediately upon release. “Amateur stations without power, cell phone or Internet access could be kept informed of important information including evacuation orders, via the Amateur Radio net,” Maaia explained. “SBARC also served as an aggregator for Thomas Fire-related information by featuring tweets on the club website.” The still-burning Thomas Fire, the largest in modern California history, caused devastating losses in Ventura and Santa Barbara counties. “Although the Santa Barbara ARES group never activated, Amateur Radio proved to be a valuable mode of communication, especially when coupled with social media, amateur mesh networking, IRC chat (over mesh and Internet) and live audio streaming,” Maaia said. In Ventura County, the Thomas Fire damaged or destroyed some Amateur Radio resources normally available to provide emergency communication. It was an Amateur Radio TV camera that caught the first images of the Thomas Fire on December 4. A fund-raising effort now is under way to help a repeater system operator to replace gear and to bolster the rest of the system for future such emergencies. Fund-raising sparkplug Ben Kuo, AI6YR, said the fire demonstrated the difficulty of keeping equipment running in remote locations during fire emergencies. “We also discovered other sites faced serious limitations after utility power was cut and solar panels were obscured by vast clouds of smoke,” Kuo recounted in his solicitation. “This GoFundMe [campaign] will go toward enhancing the existing ham radio repeater network, to make it more reliable in emergencies.” High-quality video cameras for those repeater sites is another possibility. During the Thomas Fire, Kuo helped bridge the divide between Amateur Radio and social media, and even firefighters would check his feed to see what was going on in other areas of the fire, he said. “It’s a very powerful combination,” Kuo told VC Star. An ARRL member, Kuo, of Newbury Park, founded the socaltech news site. He’s been licensed for 3 years and serves as an ARRL Technical Specialist for the ARRL Santa Barbara Section.

    Great place to get a walk in at 3.45 miles, it was more scenic that anticipated, a little over crowded on the weekend, but well worth the time to visit.

FEATURE PRODUCT(S) The "Tiger Tail" or "Rat Tail" extension can be that inexpensive improvement you are looking for. The theory: The radiating element found on top of your HT, or "rubber duck" provides the place were your signal (energy) departs your radio when you transmit. It is the "positive" side of your "ground plane" antenna field. When you hold your HT, which I noticed this weekend, during transmission, your body provides the reflective side or grounding side of the antenna field. When you have your radio in a pouch, like I had mine in my go-pack this weekend, I noticed the radio would not make the simplex contact I just finished working. I tried several times thinking my pack was blocking my signal and I tried several attempts to place my radio in a better position, exposing it in the direction of the distant station and I just couldn't get the same signal report I was getting previously while holding the radio in my hand. When I took my radio out of the pouch and "hand-held" it again, I was back at S9 into the distant station that was 18.9 miles away. Sure, the other guy was using a Yagi and he was on a base station, but by looking at the the elevation profile there is no reason why the trip to Riverside would have been sketchy other than the Jurupa Hills sitting right in between us but not tall enough to block my transmission. Examples here: https://www.google.com/search?q=ht+tiger+tail&rlz=1C1EJFB_enUS764US764&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwi3wrH6zODYAhURI6wKHa6ND1wQ_AUICygC&biw=1680&bih=957 Here is a skeptical but reasonable explanation of the "Tiger Tail" counterpoise for an HT which I do not believe is an "urban legend" as this author states but a viable way to squeeze just a little bit more out of your HT radio: VI. DISCUSSION TOPIC (We'll try and spend max time on the discussion topic on 10 JAN 18) What topics would you like to discuss this year? Identifying topic areas: Technical discussion Gear review Training opportunities Survival skills Off road and convoy techniques Prepping Water purification Message handling Buying new or used Buy equipment vs. make your own equipment Field Craft: The art of making good use of all your equipment and your environment Emergency Communications 101 (two sessions): Equipment demystification: Identifying the critical elements of your system. Hardware: Radios and their potential configuration: HT Mobile Base station Traits of each of these radios to consider: Multi-band? Dual band-dual monitor Crossband repeat function APRS beaconing Power settings (good dispersion of power settings) Programming considerations (easy, hard, manual, software cost...) Power use some rigs are more efficient than others In production, factory serviceable or not Size and clarity of display Ancillary: Adapters: Radios to coax, specifically the HT to the feed line and more efficient antennas Great example sent in by KK6TUH: https://www.hamradio.com/detail.cfm?pid=H0-008684 Coax Know the frequency and understand the line loss. Understand the quality and how the qualities provide + and - effects during deployment Masts: Military CAMO poles DJ style tripods Roof tripods Harbor Freight flagpole Hitch mount base Under tire base Spike base with pivot point for tilt-up mast Fence top-rail Rohn/MFJ masts Push-up/support from the bottom or pull up from the top Antennas: Exposed Elements Radome Field Expedient Ground Plane J-Pole Yagi Wire Log Periodic Location and environmental considerations Site indoor/outdoor operator addressable Site indoor/outdoor less addressable factors Environmental Power: 120v systems Wall socket Surge protectors (UPS), rectifiers and fail over systems Generators Battery banks 12v systems (technology driven) Solar Wind Water Other Storage on demand or sell back How green is green? Operating in adverse conditions with demands for direct or indirect support. Environment: Time, space and distance Personnel and equipment Making the most of what you have available Considerations when occupying a site: Long or short stay? FM (LOS) or HF (long distance) communications? Routes in/out of the area (convenience vs. security measures)? Clear of obstacles 360° Powerlines Transformers Brush, branches, HOA… Potential for rocks coming down, flooding, tree branches? Wind or fire hazards? Wildlife? Noise? Before you get too far into your occupation: Call in and announce arrival at tentative site Monitor effectiveness from HT or mobile system to net control (constantly “checking the wind,” will this work?) Answer the question: Operational? Not Operational? Be prepared to give time hack when you will be operational. After years of doing this, it is better to plan for more time than necessary than to set unrealistic goals that only disappoint. “Understate and over deliver!” Decide if the site will be of further use or move to or request an alternate site SAFETY throughout entire process Upgrade your position constantly and have a plan for: Continuous operations Need for shelter or moving to shelter (environmental/operational) Sustainment: Food and water Rest plan: Relief or shift work Equipment use (personal vs. institutional gear). Do you leave you equipment in play or do you pack up your stuff after the other relief team sets their gear up and a hand-off is conducted with the new team? Provide pass-downs. Learn to effectively disseminate information in the following but not limited to these areas: Always plan and prepare for the worst; “Two is one, one is none…" If everyone knows the plan and information, you will always have a way of getting the information out. Just in from N6KZM, Ray, currently deployed with the Red Cross:: Make sure you regularly inventory your Go-Bags on a regular basis. I discovered the forms I had in my posse box were outdated; luckily the persons with me covered me. Also, I thought I was working for a short time, but discovered I will be onsite for 12-hours. I was not mentally prepared for what I was being thrown into; I should have mentally prepared myself better. Although the Red Cross will take care of their volunteers, they took a few hours to arrive at the shelter and provide us with supplies. I was starving and needed something to drink. Next time I plan to better my own supplies to cover the first day of a “call-out.” Again, my Go-Bag had some refreshments, but the stuff deteriorated due to heat. I need to find a new place to store my Go-Bag to avoid the destruction of perishable goods I have stored inside. Finally, next time I will bring my radios to the shelter. There is always the chance that alternate communications may be needed. If I think of anything else, I will bring it up during the Net next week. VII. PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT Welcoming the group to our first Winter Field Day that is blossoming into a combined effort between the group and the Riverside County Amateur Radio Association (RCARA). To visit the thread: The logistics Thread: Point of contact N6KZM and hopefully he is available during the net to speak with about the particulars. If you are out listening to 20-40m band we will be using the "W6TJ" RCARA callsign, (thank you RCARA) and you can show your intent for planning purposes by sighing in here: https://www.facebook.com/events/326196561118895/

    Gentlemen: My son Bailey, KK6ORT, recently set up a new and very robust chat server on the mesh and is looking for people to come on over and give it a run for its money. The server is capable of pubic and private chat groups as well as file sharing, alerts, and more. It is currently residing on a Linux blade server operating on his mesh node at school. The server address is http://centdocker.local.mesh:1001/ from your local mesh connected device. There is also a tablet and smart phone app that works with it as well. Please share the link with others. Hope to see you checking it out. 73, Keith - AI6BX

  21. SkyWarn Webpage Changes

    Spotters We are getting inquires about our webpage changes so please visit weather.gov/SanDiego Do NOT use bookmarks or OLD links. The webpage was updated to this new look about a year ago. The spotter reporting form was changed recently due to national level changes. Spotters also have the option to call 1-800-240-3022 or use social media @NWSSanDiego There are a set up tabs and you will see "current hazard". Under this tab is a "submit report". I attached screen captures. The other tabs include "observation", "forecasts", or "local programs" Thanks for your support! -- Alex Tardy Skywarn Weather Spotter Program manager National Weather Service, San Diego
  22. Nothing special is really needed. Earbuds can work, but it will depend on the radio you plan to use. My IC7000 will allow the use of the standard earbud jack/plug; so I plan to use my Sony Headsets that use with my home stereo tuner.
  23. What recomendations for proven headsets so i can get i vote to stay in saw tooth then. That will be more to contend with. I will have a 30’ mast and we can possible use edgar too. Prob not a bad idea to have splitter too for multiple tie ins. But we should have more than enough
  24. Based on some conversations regarding the degradation of RF at Sawtooth Canyon Campgrounds (due to the surrounding rocks); I am entertaining a relocation to another site. The alternate site can be viewed on Google Earth via the attached file or go to the less detailed view at: https://goo.gl/maps/2UNkQ3F18Ho Unfortunately, this site will not have the niceties of Sawtooth Canyon (toilet pit and fabricated shelter pads).

  26. I like staying close, but think each station should wear headphones because the noise level will be high.
  27. Im good either way. As group or solo. And fyi i vote skynet.
  28. What are your thoughts, should we have two side by side ez-ups so we can have multiple tables with radios setups. We can have everyone hangout around the same area. Maybe we can have both of the ez-ups with that cube tents or walls for shade and glare. Or one tent with all the equipment, could be noise if we have 2 or more on radio operators are working at the same time. Or we all setup individually in our own areas... (less interaction and fellowship)
