Exactly.   There may have been security keypads that once used DTMF
but I can't imagine any reason for doing so today with digital security
systems.
The tone is just to confirm that you've entered a digit since the
keypads provide little if any tactile feedback.
That has been my observation. DTMF could be used internally but it's not
audible.

The most plausible explanation is someone either gave him the door
code or he watched someone enter it on the keypad, which in my mom's
facility is within easy view and where at one time the code was
written on a post-it note nearby!
That is my thought, that he watched the finger motions. It's not hard to
observe as most of the codes are probably four digits, at least the ones in
the facilities I've visited.

Humorous aside, years back when my mom was in the same facility my brother
and I were going to leave and had forgotten the code and some of the
residents were nearby and they told us the code without asking! It was a
bit unnerving.

The funny part is that the "Morse Code" story was swallowed hook line
and sinker by what passes for "journalists" today.   I applaud the
fellow for having what obviously turned out to be a good cover story!
Agreed. However, it's hard to fault journalists when many hams, who one
might think are more technologically informed, also swallowed it hook line
and sinker.

Sigh...

Re: Morse Code wins again

 

IT seems to me that in a facility like that where a keypad is used to
enter a security code that differing tones on the buttons is a failure
of design. As I recall, the facility my dad is in has such keypads and
they emit a confirmation tone, but it's the same tone for all buttons.

Bet DTMF as well. I have a good friend (a ham) in PA that can tell you the numbers dialed if he hears the tones as you are dialing. Used to drive his friends crazy when autopatch was in heavy use. LOL.

W6SFM Bug Roundup Event is coming soon! Save the Date

SFMARC W6SFM
 

Announcing W6SFM's BUG ROUNDUP

The Samuel F. Morse Amateur Radio Club, a Sacramento, California based CW enthusiast club wanted a special time to bring bug operators together on the air. In the same spirit as ARRL's Straight Key Night, participants are encouraged to make simple, conversational, “chewing-the-fat” QSOs using their bug type key. This is an opportunity to exercise, share and exhibit your personalized fist. This is NOT a contest. However, there is a very easy and quick registration form found at https://w6sfm.com/bug-roundup/. Once you've optionally registered for the event simply Call "CQ BR" so folks know you are a Bug Roundup Participant.  So lets grab that bug, clean those contacts, and let’er fly! We want to hear that “Banana Boat / Lake Erie Swing" or that commercial KPH/WCC quality fist.

Reserve the date! The event begins on Friday May 21st (local) ( May 22nd 00:00 UTC) and concludes Sunday May 23rd (00:00 UTC)
That's 5:00 PM Friday evening until Sunday 5 PM Pacific Time (LOCAL)

For more information, to register your station, and to help assist in spotting, potentially increasing QSOs, an On-line chat window link can be found near the bottom of Bug Roundup home page located at  https://w6sfm.com/bug-roundup/  We hope to hear you all on the air! 73,

W6SFM

Another idea is join skcc. They have a lot of ears, many that monitor their chat page. Several BJ ops and many with homebuilding interest.

Re: Bayou Jumper test schedule

Hi, Bruce.

How did your testing go - did you find volunteers? 

I should read my e-mail notices more often. Perhaps we could try at another opportunity; I've yet to make a Bayou Jumper to Bayou Jumper contact to date. By the time I got on last night, the band was wide-open to the EU and the Big radio was having fun trying. Maybe it'll open up east to west for us next time.

The SAVXO can be used with the Bayou Jumper.
The SAVXO manual has info about adapting it to the SS-40, and that Tx is identical to the Tx section of the BJ.

Bruce,
  I heard you very well, calling CQ on 7120 KHz at 0154Z. I called you with 5 watts, no go. I heard you answer WD9DWE’s CQ, he was 1 KHz above you and running 100 watts. I guess he did not hear you! I called you a few more times on 7120 KHz but only had N3COB and AG5GW respond. Maybe you were on the wrong side of “zero beat”?

Good morning/afternoon all

I would like to try to make a contact or contacts with my Bayou Jumper this evening. 
I will be at 7120.1 KHz, at 8:45 p.m. Central time. 
My code speed is about 10 wpm
I will be running it barefoot into a shortened dipole up about twenty feet.
I would welcome and appreciate anyone who could try to work me this evening so that I may prove my worthiness as a spy.
