Re: ARRL Field Day 2019

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

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.

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!

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?

SSS is tomorrow

John Lonigro
 

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.

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...?

Re: DMR Net

Charles W. Powell
 

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.

Re: DMR NET

Thomas Russell
 

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


Re: ARRL Field Day 2019

Guys,

Go for it!  The South Plainfield Amateur Radio Club (NJ2SP) here in NJ was founded in April 2014 and that didn't leave much time for Field Day planning. So I suggested we go QRP - just a few wires in the trees in the local park, and operate off batteries. The club agreed and we did a 2A Battery effort that year and came in 3rd pace nationwide in our category!

I thought that once that was over the other guys in the club would want to go QRO for 2015. They didn't! They had such a good time, that we've been QRP for Field Day ever since and we place decently every year.

Admittedly, the SSB guys have a bit tougher time, but we added a beam to our antenna arsenal for them - so they make their fair share of QSOs, too.  I know you'll have a blast if you decide to do this.

Jerry, WA0KNW
I'm not local, but my club (wb1gof.org) does field day every year, the
past N years as 3A (cw/ssb/digital, plus vhf and gota). The last few
years have been with 100W stations, mostly operated via honda EU2000.

But, a few years ago (2012?), we operated at 5W only, on lead acid
batteries (starting full), with solar panels. All the rigs were K2, and
it was very quiet without the motors running. We still had all the
antennas, including 2-el wire beams on 40 and 20/15/10 pointing west (EMA).

Overall, the score obtained was similar QRP vs not, and we made about
half the contacts as QRP. For operators and guest operators who aren't
specifically into QRP, it seems more contacts is more fun.

So I would definitely encourage you to do this. Even two people can be
a fun time; I once ran a 1B station solo in the same place as somebody
else doing that - that's like a 2-person FD except we had separate
logs/scores/calls.
