Re: VARA FM Autobahn

Mark Warrick (KM6ZPO) <mark@...>
 

VARA is just a mode of transport.  P2P works on many different transport modes.  VARA as a mode works on FM and HF.

This is a good video for gaining an understanding of using VARA FM for Winlink.

You are the help until professional help arrives...

Mark Warrick (KM6ZPO) <mark@...>
 

Paraphrasing a message from FEMA, we are the help until the cavalry arrives.  I think those words truly summarize our efforts as amateur ham operators.  To be ready though, we need to practice as the professionals do.  While we may be practicing our hobbies individually, we are not practicing as a team.  

Imagine if we were a loosely-organized traveling softball team who never met up for drills.  Imagine all we did was check in every Monday to let each other know that our bats still hit balls and our gloves still caught them.  Imagine if during the week, we tried our best to practice on our own.  Maybe we each would have a basket of balls we would hit out to the field and go retrieve them.  Maybe we would even run the bases for exercise.  But would we be ready for a game? 

NO

I have heard it said before, a team is only as good as its weakest link.  Are you the weakest link?  A rhetorical question: what have you done lately to build and hone your skills?

A real question: what have WE done as a team lately?  I've been on the "team" for a few months now and all I've seen is weekly check-ins and a once a month virtual meeting.  Where are the drills?  What are we learning?

NOTHING

Are we ready, as a team, to be the help until professional help arrives? 

NO

What are we going to do about that?

ARRL November Phone Sweepstakes - Sat 11/20 4PM PST through Mon 11/22 7PM PST - Anyone participating Sunday?

Mark Warrick (KM6ZPO) <mark@...>
 

I got an FT-891 last weekend and got on the air for the first time with my own HF equipment!  I would say my first try was a success considering that I was able to contact somebody in Japan and get a "5/9" report from them.  I would appreciate the experience of an elmer to check my setup and radio settings.

Is anyone planning to set up this weekend to participate in the ARRL November Phone Sweepstakes contest?  

The contest runs from 2100 UTC Saturday (4PM PST) and runs through 0259 UTC Monday (7PM)  It seems like Sunday would be ideal if you enjoy working in the daytime.

The objective of the contest is to support training in radiocommunications, improving amateur operating skills, and communicating with other amateurs. Stations in the United States and Canada exchange information with as many other US and Canadian stations as possible on the 160, 80, 40, 20, 15 and 10 meter bands.

I have heard that band conditions are going to be pretty good this weekend.
