Same.


As of right now I've heard nothing. 40 does look pretty dead on the SDR.

Just sent a JS8 HB, only one station received it out of 114. -21db in CO.

I got two check-in's tonight, rough conditions.

Thanks for trying, hopefully next week will be improved.

Turns out it was a good thing I wasn't NC.

Thanks for volunteering, Nmbmxer. Looks like it was one of those weeks.

I didn't see any obvious issues with the propagation data, it's probably just poor timing.

On the bright side I was looking at the sunspot numbers and the forecasts for summer 2022
are pretty good.

Updated net time. Still need a volunteer NC.

Pretty good chance I'll check in now that I have limited use of my right hand again.

I can do it again, hopefully condx are better than last week.

solar flux and sunspot number looks to be a bit better than last week, so hopefully prop is improved.

I am copying on 7120.

Thanks. I'm on 7120 as well, but the radio wasn't in data mode.


My excuse is this is the backup, usual digital rig is packed up for a trip this week.

Thanks for NCing, NMBMXER. I'd say conditions were a little rough but I had decent copy on all.

The in/out station was +10dB here.

You were also strong and the only one I copied 100%.  We must have an optimum path.   Everyone else was about 50%, up and down with the QSB.

I usually hear weaponeer1911, green dragon and Mach really well, Redbirdxx is typically good and seek is probably the quietest of the bunch.

I have a lot of noise lately, noise floor was S8 before the net. I think it's all the Xmas lights.

I'm going to attempt to NC tonight's net -- please be patient. I'm able to type
half-assedly with my right hand now so I think I'll be able to keep up.

Plan for 7120 KHz for now.
Link Posted: 12/22/2021 3:23:10 PM EDT
[#22]
Sounds good. I'll be around tonight, last few nets have been pretty small so it should be pretty easy to keep up with one hand.
Link Posted: 12/22/2021 7:27:47 PM EDT
[#23]
I'm seeing jamming like noise just above 7120, 7114 looks better here.
Link Posted: 12/22/2021 7:58:29 PM EDT

FYI we're sticking with 7120 tonight, there's QRM but Olivia seems to be ignoring it.
Link Posted: 12/22/2021 8:27:15 PM EDT
[#25]
Small net, which made it easier for me to type.

Two check ins. I'd say conditions were a little worse than last week, definitely much more QRM,
but had solid copy on both stations.

I have trouble with the new (earlier) time.  Still have dinner going on here at net time.  I'll try to do better.

I should be on next week, we were on the road at net time.

Currently in GA en route to FL. Hope to check in from FL next week with the portable setup.

I'm down in FL on my portable setup, antenna is less than optimal. I'll be on but seriously doubt I'll be able to hit AZ.

Never underestimate Olivia's abilities. We'll see how it goes.

Will send the first reminder at 2300Z as usual.

ETA:
#2 out at 2315Z roughly, I realized the net text is saying 0015Z and fixed it after the fact.

ETA2:
#3 out at 2330Z

Yep, got your response, thanks. Antenna as configured is definitely going to do better in your direction.

End fed w/counterpoise tossed out a second floor window across some palm trees maybe 15' AGL. Wire is running east/west. Best I could do without annoying the inlaws too much.

Net is still ongoing, last station is going now so ~ 0023 or so should be open for attempts to check in.

 Can't figure out how to get my new radio to transmit with Digital Master.  Listening is working fine.

Course I figure it out right as the net ends.  PTT was not configured.

Decent net. Redbirdxx's setup was working very well!

Four stations checked in tonight. Propagation was quite good at the start of the net but seem to fade over time.

Hope to hear you all next week. Don't forget to listen for pirates on NYE if you're into that.
