Barry,

Thanks for looking.  The only station I could copy well was a VE1, so Bill, WG5T, remains the only member of an exclusive group (for at least a couple more weeks).

Tomorrow (Saturday), from 1500 to 1800 UTC, Bob (KA9BHD) and I will be teaching the General License class for the DuPage (IL) Amateur Radio Club. It's part of a 10-week session, and we'll be covering antennas. As part of our discussion, we like to incorporate a lot of show-and-tell and hands-on experience. As part of tomorrow's lecture, we'll be doing a bit of an antenna demo (which is where this ties in with the WABOL opportunity).

For our demo, we'll be setting up a station to work PSK31. We're not planning on working the world with this one (it's basically my hotel portable set-up). I'm announcing it here in hopes of attracting a few potential contacts. The station's going to consist of an Elecraft KX3 at 5 watts, a 20-meter shortened dipole (about 15 feet long), and a Pigtail interface run off an Android phone (using HamLog). While that may not sound too bad, we'll be in the back of a building that's built on a hill, so essentially underground or on the ground floor (depending on what direction we're looking); and the antenna will be located in-doors.

So, where's the WABOL? Bob and I will be using the Voyagers ARC Club call, KC9IMR, during the demo. KC9IMR is LONP number 226 as of January 19, 2013. As a field-ops call, KC9IMR doesn't see much use, particularly during the winter. In fact, only one station's worked KC9IMR for WABOL credit so far. Anyone looking for KC9IMR WABOL credit early in the year, tomorrow's your chance. Of course, you don't have to be a LONP member to give us a shout - calls from anyone are more than welcome. In fact, if you're working on LONP, KC9IMR might not be in your log. I'm just using the WABOL thing to sweeten the pot a bit and get people to possibly listen.

I wish I could be more specific with time, but I'm going to have to play it by ear until I see how things play out. Bob and I taught the Technician class last week, and there were no impediments to anything. This week we'll be waiting on some club-furnished equipment, etc. I'll try to send an e-mail to the group when we're ready to go. Hopefully we'll catch some of you on the air tomorrow morning.

73,

Eric/K9VIC (sometimes KC9IMR)

Next week we will have printed QSL card to confirm that the 2013 DXpedition in the ISLA GAMA  IOTA SA-022.
This is a dual card printed on front and back photochromy paper illustration. The inner faces are in black ink. Behind the front is the description of the island  in spanish and english. And on the opposite side of the table data and the final numbers of the log.
The QSL L22D also was uploaded at e.QSL (guaranteed).

Helpful macros for use with Fldigi and TS-590S

v32hoosier <v32hoosier@...>
 

Here are a couple of macros that I find very useful at my setup (i.e. Fldigi software with a CAT-controlled TS-590S transceiver). Occasionally when working a weak signal, a strong in-band signal will pop up, causing the receiver AGC to reduce the gain, dropping the weak signal into the weeds. Fldigi has a couple of macro functions that can be used to 1) move the weak signal you're working into the center of the IF passband and 2) select a very narrow IF filter centered on that signal. Combining these functions into one macro allows you to select only the signal you want and eliminate the rest. The macros work very well with my TS-590S and may work similarly with other transceivers. The macros I use are:

Macro #1 (I named it "QSY 80") = QSYTO FILWID:80
(note: the "less than" and "greater than" symbols enclosing QSYTO and FILWID:80 aren't shown because they don't print correctly here)

"QSYTO" retunes the TS-590S so that the selected signal is centered at an operator-selected waterfall frequency that Fldigi calls a "sweetspot". For my setup, I set the "sweetspot" to be 1200 Hz, the same as the "IF Shift" setting on my TS-590S (i.e. the center of the IF bandpass). In Fldigi, the "sweetspot" is set by going to menu: Configure/Misc/Sweetspot.

"FILWID:80" sets the TS-590S IF bandwidth to 80 Hz. This macro function can be used to select any of the TS-590S valid IF bandwidths. Macros for other bandwidths may be desirable for working other modes (RTTY, Olivia, etc...).

Macro #2 (I named it "QSY Undo") = QSYFM FILWID:2500 (again the enclosing symbols aren't shown)

"QSYFM" retunes the TS-590S to it's original frequency (i.e. before the application of Macro #1).
"FILWID:2500" resets the TS-590S IF bandwidth back to 2500 Hz (i.e. "full band").

I use these macros all the time, and hopefully they will benefit other club members.
