Re: DMR NET

Hi Charles and group,

I would like to invite you to use our XLX reflector here on the Nature Coast,
for your meetings. If you need a good reliable reflector for DMR. We were tired of the problems with the traditional TG Talk Groups and built our own using XLX software.

The XLX352 reflector can be used for D-Star or DMR.  DMR defaults to Module D,
D-Star is used for A,B,C modules. The setup is a little different, but not complicated.
If you would like to know more about the setup for your radio let me know.
The dashboard is at XLX352.ddns.net. Talk to you soon.

73, Tom, K8YPH

Would there be any interest in making a serious QRP Field Day effort for 2019?   Any discussion on this?

Re: DMR Net

There are several ways to do this.  One is to obtain a login to the Brandmeister network under your call and click on your hotspot from the menu column (usually the last on the left side).  Then you can manage static connections.  Second is, if you are using Pi-Star to install the Brandmeister API. Then you can control this from your hotspot dashboard. The Brandmeister API can be added to other hotspots as well, but I am not familiar with anything other than Pi-Star.  I think there is way to do this from the radio, but someone who knows more than me will have to elaborate.  The advantage of the API is that all your connections, both static and dynamic, show up on the Pi-Star dashboard.

I will be adding some links on installing the Brandmeister API to my 4-State DMR document.

The above is from a previous message.  I DO use a hotspot, but how do I drop the static connection?

The St. Louis QRP Society has been doing Field Day for years -- all battery power (and a little solar too!). We have a lot of fun.

Our 2017 outing was written up in the ARRL MW Division Newsletter: http://www.arrlmidwest.org/pdfs/arlmwd-aug2017news.pdf

And here's a little info about FD2018: https://www.slqs.net/another-great-fd-for-slqs/

You can see photos of our past outings here: http://photos.slqs.net

If you're in the St. Louis area, we'd love to have you join us this year.

Maybe we should have a "4 States QRP FD Site Locator" on the 4SQRP web page...?

Bert, Terry and myself used to do field day at Weston Bend State Park, just across the river in MO.
Nice tall trees, clean camp sites, quiet area.

We spent as much time eating and visiting as working field day!

Just a thought?

That’s a nice site, Johnny.  I’d likely join you there.  Can we get permission to stay overnight and set up tents and campers?

I have set up at a park local to me, Lewis & Young Park in Louisburg KS but I do need to get permission from the city to stay the weekend.  It is also a nice site on flat ground with lots of good trees.  I have a new 30 Ah LiFePO4 battery that would last a good long time at either site!

SSS is tomorrow

Don't forget the December Second Sunday Sprint is coming up tomorrow night (7:00-9:00 Sunday night central time).  Please tabulate your score by Tuesday night at the latest.  I will try to remember to come up with the December winner as well as the 2018 overall winner by Wednesday morning.  As always, when the new year comes, everyone's score magically reverts to 0 and we will start all over again with the 2019 SSS.

It’s a state park, so you can rent camp sites.
We usually reserved at least 2 side by side so we could string wires across both.
Tents and campers are welcome.

Gerry, on FD Saturday, I travel about 60 miles to a Club FD Site and operate. It is QRO, and I get my yearly SSB Fix. On Sunday, I operate QRP CW from my yard. I only have QRP CW on HF. I have heard rumors on any QRP guy in the next County :O

G5RV Antenna

George H. Gates
 

If you are using a G5RV what are you using for the balun? Not interested in any ones opinion wether ant is good or not. just comment on balun. Tnx Geo/W2BPI

Re: G5RV Antenna

Paul Smith
 

George,
 I did have a G5RV and it was fed with coax no balun. When the wind broke the 450 ohm window line I spliced on a hunk of window line and used a 4-1 balun.

Re: G5RV Antenna

I had a home brewed G5RV some years ago.  I used a LDG 4:1 balun to match the  450 Ohm ladder-line. It seemed to work as well as any other G5RV I have experienced.

No balun on mine. Goes directly to coax which goes to the tuner. It works well with minimal RF in the shack. It's been my primary antenna for more than ten years.

Re: G5RV Antenna

I’ve used the G5RV for years.  No balun and followed the original p,an by adjusting the ladderline to coax connection for the lowest SWR on 20 WITHOUT the tuner.  

My 2 cents worth
