  1. My wife and I just attended a Hamcram session and passed the exam! Hope to have our licenses in a couple of weeks and then attend (at least listen) to the weekly Net. Thank you for organizing the event.

  2. Great net. I tried to get on but I have yet to be registered with echolink. I listened part way on the conference line but it dropped me after about 7 minutes. I will try to look you up again next week. Thanks for getting HAM into the conversation. A large number of people in OB here in Orange County, California are getting licenced and learning the ropes. Look forward to future talks.

  3. Here's foldable solar panels in the U.S.: https://p3solar.com/p3-portables/

    I almost purchased one of the 75W ones last year – I preferred the idea of a foldable one because i thought it would be easier to pack away, that's before somebody else told me the tip about storing a semi-flex inside the RTT. Instead of picking up the 75W folding panel for about $400 i was able to get a more performant 100W semi-flex panel for less than $300

  4. Open discussion for tonight, so everyone please feel free to throw out some ideas for future topics tonight.  We've got a couple of things in the pipeline that we hope to cover in the next few weeks, but haven't had a chance to firm them up just yet.

    Unfortunately, life happened for several of us this week, so we didn't have a chance to get together to discuss anything specific.

    Shane, K5TINSounds good. Can someone maybe go over the basics of EchoLink and then speak on how to hook to repeaters with there radio….this newbie needs to know [emoji851]

    There will probably be folks online before the net for a little friendly rag chew. Swing on by and we'll get you up to speed!

    Everyone be sure to tune in this evening and join in!

    A quick note from the net controllers:

    Please be sure to check your Timing settings in Tools->Setup (or shortcut Alt-E). "Transmit Time Limit" should be set to 180 seconds. This is 3 minutes and is the time most repeaters are set to "time out" at. We believe the link with one of our repeaters was dropped because of a long key down on a previous net and we lost two of our check-ins. Thanks for your help in making this a successful net!

    Thanks for throwing that out, Terry!  I meant to bring it up earlier in the week and then my Old Timers kicked in.  Anyway, what was I saying again???  😕

  8. My mic that was packed away no longer works, so I will be listening and will check in via text

    You can also download the app onto your phone.  The only difference is you tap the screen instead of a key.  At least on an iPhone.  Guessing an Android works the same way.

  9. My dumb iPhone won’t connect to the node been troubleshooting

    I've had the same issue on mine from time to time.  Usually its been because it didn't like my WiFi.  If you've got enough spare data, try turning off the WiFi and just using cell data.  I'll be leaving from here at work in about 10 minutes, so if you want to try and connect to my node we can try to see if you can get it to work.  Search K5TIN and try to connect.  If not, then maybe we can get Terry or someone who's already at their QTH to work on it with you.
