... and almost as soon as I posted the announcement, the event went away.  We had to cancel the demo for today due to illness.  We’ll reschedule soon.

Our apologies to those of you who may have been looking for us.

Re: 6 Meters Open today

Never fails, I hear FT8 signals but by the time I get my computer going (it's mostly a struggle), they're gone.  I went to 50.290 and called CQ for a while and didn't hear anything.  I've never worked anyone on 6m, what is the best time to look for signals?

Buz, WA5AMM

I only stuck around for abt 15 mins but I figured since FT8 was dead there would be no chance.  Yesterday it was loaded with FT8.  I will look at 6 everyday at 16:00 z, Thurs thru Sunday and if there is activity on FT8, I'll hang around for at least a half hour.  Maybe by giving everyone a heads up in advance might help create some action.

Digital demo for new and potential Generals on Saturday 17 July

Mike W4BZM
 

Bottom line up front:  If you’re on PSK-31 at about 1515 UTC on Saturday 17 July, please keep a lookout for W4BZM.

The whole story:  Our local club has decided that offering license classes and testing is not enough to grow new hams.  Especially for new General class licensees, we see the need for a structured program AFTER the test to get new Generals on the air.  We are working on a guide for our Elmers with a checklist of items to cover that are not emphasized (or in some cases even addressed) in the license manuals or the General exam — things like picking hardware, choosing an antenna appropriate to the new General’s QTH, the sequence for a typical QSO, tuning the antenna without interfering with an ongoing QSO, various methods of confirming a contact (QSL), logging, etc.  

One of the subject we  cover in the post-test syllabus is a more detailed, hands-on demonstration of various digital modes, including PSK-31.  If the Florida thunderstorms allow, we will try to host such a demo on 20 meters, starting about 1515 UTC on Saturday 17 July.  We are hoping to see a lot of signals on the waterfall.  If your happen to see the call W4BZM, please be willing to make a short QSO with our new Generals, and be patient as we demonstrate straight “type it in” interchanges as well as macros.  (There may be a delay between end of your transmissions and start of a reply.)  We are trying to develop interest in PSK-31 up front, early in the experiences of the new General licensee.

...and yes, we will later be demonstrating modes of FT8, Winlink, and perhaps JS8.  Please don’t bash us for that.  As much as we all love our PSK-31 mode, it’ only fair to let the new folks know about the many options available in ham radio.

Hope to see you on the waterfall.

Dick-
I just spent some time going back over your travel plan and calendar.  In addition to what you have noted for me, I also need DM74 which I see for the 19th and again on the 28th.  Please add me in for that grid.  Many thanks.  Really looking forward to following your trip again.  73,

I'll give it another try tomorrow, Thursday at 16:00 z on 50.2905 on the waterfall and I'll stay on at least an hour.  Glad to see that at least someone heard me.
