Copy - will add yours to the list.

I have a BuddiPole and ham sticks, too, along with several wire antennas. Definitely an "A" - in some ways better because it allows you to work from a better location.

Jer,

Put me down for D, E, W, M.  I have temporary external antennas for HF(Buddy Pole, Ham Sticks) as well as VHF UHF.  Not sure if that constitutes an "A" or not.

Duracell Battery Charger

Hi, All -

I picked up one of the following at the Vista Costco the other day:

https://www.costco.com/duracell-4-amp-battery-charger-and-maintainer.product.100479359.html

According to the instruction sheet this charges 12v LiFePO4 as well as 12v/6v lead acid/SL/AGM batteries. 4A/12v, 1A/6v.

Four stage charging, IP65 weatherproof, reconditions lead-based batteries and wall mountable. 3 year warranty.

Lowest price I've seen for this in awhile. Haven't tested this yet but looks promising.

73,

Weekly Analog Net Roster - OpsCodes

Jer Kostro - Red Cross
 

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

Thanks, Steve -

As an alternative you can consider US Carburetion

especially if you don't have a Honda generator.
