April 5, 2018

First thanks to Jim/Marilyn for the nice card concerning my sister. 
Thanks to Dave/Raj for the nice words on the job this morning. Hard to believe but I might have missed a character here and there. Even Coast Guard trained folks miss a character once in a while. We had 13 checkins. Haven’t had that many in quite awhile. Fred, I asked about the Bingo report but apparently my signal wasn’t getting all the way to KW. Say howdy to the pres for us. Tom had to give me a shot or two about the wx.

RMCM Doug Campbell USCG Ret

R.I.P. Doug

We got a new guy this morning. Bob Ryder/N1MFW who was sitting at WCC/Chatham MA. Nice to hear from you Bob. Up on 14052 every Thursday 11:30am your time. Signals very strange this morning. Stations that are normally very good were weak and vice verse in some cases. Smokey I was getting both your ground wave and sky wave. The skywave was just a tic delayed so you were causing your own interference. Thanks for the QSP’s Dave. 
Bob you stated you departed the CG in 64 as an RM2 I think. We must have been close to the same RM class…mine was 9-61. 
Ted came down to 7mcs on the house…QSA2/3

ZUT  DE K7SXN​
Last week I was in Green Valley AZ. The Titan Missile Museum has a very tall discone antenna that Ham's can hook into.  It's sponsored and maintained by the GVARC  http://gvarc.us/
Attached is pix of the KX3 in the back of rental SUV powered via 12v of vehicle with coax to the discone.  Great reception for most of last the net last week.  
{February 8th ZUT Net}

Note: Pix of Discone Antenna is screen shot of K7SXN's video  https://www.facebook.com/100000023870382/videos/1821935921150519/

Comms were a little crummy in the main. We did have a dozen check ins which is great. Both Ted/W6VXP and Dennis/K7DCG joined me on 7mcs. The following item was sent:

ITEM – DOUG CAMPBELL RMCM USCG RET CROSSED THE BAR ON 5 MARCH 2018 A MOMENT OF SILENCE PSE…..RIP DOUG

Sunset and evening star and one clear call for me. May there be no moaning of the bar when I put out to sea….We’ve all probably recited that poem too many times. At the end of the net Raj was trying to raise Smokey without any luck.

ted/w6vxp


Thanks FC . . . I was able to hear most direct but used the remote listening site for some.  In fact you were S4 on 14 live but nil on 7 live?  Heard you on WEBSDR / KFS site on both.
Anyone have a signal report on hearing me or not is appreciated.

Cyber-Notes


DE Smokey
It was all of that and less.   I heard Raj once or twice but QSB was wicked. 
I still have to listen for sigs via the internet and when I send there is a 1/2 second delay of hearing myself online. It's very confusing hearing dashes when sending dots!!  I have to mute the internet or turn up the radio to hear myself.  It's like a reverb.

Pretty good net. Bob/N1MFW I apologize for not writing your name down on my log and then forgetting it. Bob isn’t real hard to remember so you’ve got to consider who you’re dealing with here I suppose. Decent net except I can go without the reminders of spring like wx back east. Gripes they are talking low land snow on Sunday here. 

Welcome back to Raj. Thanks Dave the help with the Smokster. Smokey you were strong on 7mcs. Probably QSA3/4.

​​​Pretty good net this morning. An even dozen. Smokey I heard you calling on 7mcs QSA2 but you never hear me. Maybe you should give up on 7mc. Remember what WC Fields said ‘if at first you don’t succeed try, try again then give up. Don’t be a damned fool about it’. Had Ted QSA2 on 7mcs. Good to hear Dick/K6KSG back. Both Tom and NMA Dave seem to be doing better with signal strength. Dan found his key that the cat drug off and it’s rusted.

Good group my first time back after several weeks. Big time TKS  to Dave and Raj during my absence. I had to refer to the Jr. Woodchuck CW manual for a few of the characters sent but I got most. Sigs were fair. NMA/NMR a little weak. Smokey came up late and was very tough but we got a little. Nice to be back with ‘my people’. I can tell you for sure the nurses at U/W med center could not copy code worth a hoot but they were a nice bunch. I’m not allowed to drive yet so Martha is taking me out to the base for a haircut this morning. Happy New Year to all. First time I’ve ever sat the sked in my Jammies.
