Hi, All -

You may have noticed on the Tuesday night net roster a column labeled
"OpsCodes". This is a tool by which the Communications Duty Officer
(CDO) or, if we have been activated, the event's Communications Unit
Leader (Com-L) can get a quick idea of some of our team members basic
capabilities in order to make initial assignments. We haven't updated
this in awhile - in light of the ongoing possibility of  Public Safety
Power Outages this seems be a good time to do so.

There are currently seven OpsCodes:

D => DMR. You have a DMR radio programmed with our two talk groups.

E => Emergency power. You can operate 'off the grid' for a period of
time - you might be asked to estimate for how long if/when the CDO/Com-L
contacts you . My personal criteria is to have enough alternative power
(generation and storage) for a 8-12 hour daily shift for a minimum of
three days, assuming one mobile radio operated at 10w with a duty cycle
of 20% (20% talk/80% listen). YMMV - having access to a mobile radio in
you car counts towards this.

A => External antenna. Having a gain antenna on your roof, tower, or
temporary support will give you signal a better reach.

B => Beam antenna (ideally external). This gives your signal a better
reach through directionality, especially in simplex mode. Examples
include a VHF and UHF yagis or a dual band log periodic antenna (i.e.
Elk). Team members with the appropriate equipment can operate VHF or UHF
SSB mode, increasing effective signal strength hence range. Although I
haven't played with the concept yet UHF DMR and a beam antenna looks
promising for simplex operations.

H => HT only. More of a limitation than an asset. You can produce a
signal, but it's limited by a small antenna and low power. This can be
partially compensated for by using a external and/or beam antenna.

W => Winlink-capable. A team member who can send/receive VHF and/or HF
Winlink messages.

M => Mobile. Ideally, a 50w single or dual band radio in you vehicle
with a gain antenna mounted externally. This counts as being emergency
powered.

We purposely tried to keep this simple (few people bother to fill out
long forms). If you are a net participant please review your codes and
update as necessary. Next week I'll  upload a "special edition" with the
revisions.

73 and thanks for you consideration,

Jer aka AK6QJ

Will put you down as D E A. While you have a great location for Palomar a beam antenna is a bit different.

I have a DMR radio, external power (gas generator), a Diamond X-30 external antenna Max Power rating: 150W-Max. Wind resistance (135 mph)  that I think could acts as a beam antenna since we are high with excellent visual to Palomar.

Just thought I'd remind everyone to review you OpsCodes and forward to
yours truly any revisions.

I'll be sending out a revised roster Tuesday 11/12 with the changes
received so far.

In the future, let me know of any changes to your status and it will
(somewhat) magically appear in the next roster update.
