Re: I fixed my APRS

Doug Gilliam
 

Hi Duffy,

Glad to hear that.  Along with the new antenna stack, I am replacing the rotor with a Ham IV and a fully programmable controller, the DCU-3.  With software I will be able to enter your 6 digit grid square to rotate quickly to your azimuth. The APRS data will sure help.  I just received a 300W cell amp that I need to setup for 902. I also got a DEMI lna kit and 17el M2 beam.  Hopefully will be QRV on 902 by June.  The 222 and up stack replacement awaits assembly of all the yagis and for my wrist to heal a bit more,  but I expect that it will be up by early May. 

The biggest improvements for this contest will be a pair of 11WL 432 beams with anticipated 20 dbd gain, (lna at the power divider), and a 22 el/28ft boom 222 K1FO with mast mount lna.  With any luck I will also have the IC-9700 by then. DX Engineering has an estimated ship date of 5/29. Not gonna hold my breath.

I should be fully retired in about 2 weeks after 39 years of practicing dentistry.  Looking forward to becoming a full time grandpa/ham/landscaper/carpenter, etc.  Not sure if I will grow a ponytail and beard...

Subject: [nmvhf] I fixed my APRS
 
For those of you who missed my APRS spots in the January contest, I have found the problem and fixed it. I was accessing the APRS internet gateway on the wrong port. Thanks to Jim, KC7QY for pointing this out in the contest. Finding the problem was not easy, but trivial in the end. I am seriously thinking of going to an RF tracker.

Records are kept by Ned Stearns AA7A.

Current listing is here: 


Propagation modes are tropospheric refraction and ducting (including line-of-sight paths), divided into in three categories: Tropo (A) (tropospheric modes across the Atlantic, Caribbean, and Gulf of Mexico); Tropo (C) (tropospheric modes across continental North America; Tropo (P) (tropospheric modes across the Pacific); Aurora (auroral scatter); Auroral E (auroral E); Sporadic E (sporadic E); FAI (E-layer field-aligned irregularities; IFS (ionospheric forward scatter); Meteors (meteor scatter); TE (transequatorial field-aligned irregularities); and Rain scatter (precipitation scatter).

Anybody know the current 78 GHz DX record ?
Are there two records at microwvar frequencies ? ?
Something like "Coastal" (..where ducting is common) and "Inland" ?

Rr Duffy,

It’ll help to have APRS going again.

Looks like the 10 thru 78 AZ microfest is back on.  It’s 3-7 thru 3-9. Mostly focusing on 10 for pointing and 47 and 78 for DX experiments.

Let me know if you think you are coming so I can tell them how many to set up for.
