    • N0ANE : I've had that experience. The repeater locks into analog only. I remoted by way of the second receiver and rebooted with a couple of commands. It cleared up.
    • N0ANE : Sure would like to see a North America server for our Yaesu Wires X system. This again proves that the YSF reflector system may be our only means to communicate over a long term outage.

    • W4IOD/Odis : Happy Thanksgiving and stay safe 73 de W4IOD SK SK
    • W4IOD/Odis : Hey Shawn, can't advise as we are all digital here.
    • K9EQ/Chris : You probably have a hard time convincing users to change!
    • KN4RFJ/Shawn : Thanks Chris, I also believe DCS is superior! hihi
    • KN4RFJ/Shawn : We are using 151.4Hz currently on the DR-1. Just trying to decide if the better option is to convince the club to change the tone or upgrade repeaters.
    • K9EQ/Chris : Yes they do. Some tones work better than others. What tone are you using? You can try DCS. Technically it works much better than CTCSS. I have not noticed problems with the DR-2X.
    • KN4RFJ/Shawn : So the old DR-1 seemed to have issues with decoding certain tones, specifically 151.4Hz, for example. Has that been fixed with the DR-2X?

    • AD0MI/Pete : nice feature.
    • kc0itq/Ian : Hello. While testing the ft-5dr with k0lwc, we seemed to find that the bluetooth had a design flaw - it will transmit with the audio from both the internal mic and bluetooth mic, which causes the audio to sound echoed.
    • W4IOD/Odis : Hello Ian
    • W4IOD/Odis : Take care Joe
    • KM4NHN-Joe : I have to go. Good night everyone. Have a great week.
    • N9HFL/Jim : Sorry, my battery died. I was just suggesting that a firewall with hardcoded source and destination addresses might work as well. Hope that everyone has a really great week. thanks for running this net.
    • kc0itq/Ian : I heard it with k0lwc and his new ft-5dr... perhaps it's just an HT thing?
    • KM4NHN-Joe : I just have the FTM-400 and haven't had the variation in the audio that Marty is talking about.
    • KM4NHN-Joe : Thank you Chris and Pete for all you are doing with servers

    • N0PXT/Shane : To all listening we apologize. There is a bridging issue between Wires-X and YSF Reflectors right now. We need to restart the software to resolve the issue but it will kick everyone off the node. We will do this right after the net.

    • K9EQ/Chris : John Kruk is not actually the sales manager anymore. He stepped down from that about a year ago. Hans Rooker is now the sales manager. He's busy, he also covers aviation and marine.
    • Steve K3FZT : Chris--I've carried the radio in the belt clip for 3-4 hours/day going back and forth from shack to workshop to barn to errand in car and haven't had it pop out of the clip yet. It has taken me most of a week to figure out how to take the radio off the clip without altering anything. I still hit the top knob sometimes.
    • W4IOD/Odis : You can call if you can get someone to answer he just says contact Yaesu directly...he doesn't specify outside of that Steve
    • Steve K3FZT : Odis--Is there a person to address directly or just send a letter to California?
    • W4IOD/Odis : He's not much help on those type of issues seems to be his SOP
    • W4IOD/Odis : John will probably tell you to contact Yaesu directly.
    • K9EQ/Chris : That probably won't do much.
    • Steve K3FZT : Chris--I've written John Kruk.
    • K9EQ/Chris : It seems a letter writing campaign may be needed. I know at least one person with a 3 that WOULD HAVE upgraded had the 5's BT been better.
    • Steve K3FZT : Bluetooth on FT5D is the same as on the FT3D: the only BT profile supported is "Headset" not "Handsfree" though they use the term "handsfree" in their marketing presumably to indicate the PTT and VOX functionality. No joy for those of us with hearing aids who need the BT Handsfree profile.

    • K3FZT/Steve : Thank you. I'm not concerned about the scan name. I could see it might need some thought if traveling, but when local it surely won't be an issue.
    • N0ANE : "mem scan" or "vfo scan" Not an issue to me!
    • N0ANE : Congrats, Steve. Sounds like they will be a wonderful HT. Yaesu has listened to concerns that were voiced with the FT3. People are making an ridiculously huge deal about the scanning no longer showing frequencies but simply indicating "mem scan
    • K3FZT/Steve : Just got my FT-5DR from HRO. Came with an extra belt clip in orange. Just downloaded the RT Systems software for it. Battery charging.

    • AI5AI-Don : Howdy everyone from Texas 08/23/2021
    • VE3IGN / Don : Great Net, 73' all
    • VE3IGN / Don : Keep all your quality built radios before covid, having to replenish may cost and quality may not be there.
    • VE3IGN / Don : Since COVID-19, prices on everything has sky rocketed.
    • VE3IGN / Don : Wow, guess those radios are gems. Excellent resale value.
    • K3FZT/Steve : When I put together a go box I'll be looking for another FTM-100, but right at the moment, pricing on QRZ is out of wack. Today someone put up an FT-100 for $425.
    • VE3IGN / Don : Lol, must gotta hide em, "Honey why do you have so many FTM-100s?" say the wife.
    • N0ANE : I have five of them and still married. Love them!
    • VE3IGN / Don : Yesss, that's why I have 2 of them...one node and other mobile/go box.
    • N0ANE : The price of the FTM-100 was much better for a node investment.
    • VE3IGN / Don : I do believe the FTM-300 replaced the FTM-100
    • N0ANE : Still waiting for the FTM200. We need the FTM100 replacement more than anything to support Yaesu C4FM interest.
    • N0ANE : The literature also addresses loud audio of 1 watt. Seems to address complaints about FT3 audio.
    • N0ANE : HRO Price shows$480. Ouch
    • VE3IGN / Don : Chris there is a picture on Gigaparts

    • KN4RFJ/Shawn : 73 all
    • W4IOD/Odis : Everyone have a good evening and stay safe 73 de W4IOD SK SK
    • K3FZT/Steve : yep. There are still a few 6M FM repeaters around w/vertical polarization and my current 6M antennas are horizontal for FT8 mostly and a little bit of SSB.
    • KN4RFJ/Shawn : Understood, assuming you mean 6m coverage as in 6m TX
    • K3FZT/Steve : Aircraft band would be nice. 6M too.
    • K9EQ/Chris : Okay, I think that's why I didn't want the Diamond. I wanted the coverage down to 100 MHz plus 6 meters.
    • K3FZT/Steve : Thanks, Shawn.
    • KN4RFJ/Shawn : Diamond also makes a miniature discone, the D220R, I believe. It is about 2ft tall, still receives well on all bands. TX is 2m and up. The small size may be wife approved ;D
    • guest_5127 : Hi
    • K3FZT/Steve : 🙂
    • K3FZT/Steve : I've been having great fun with my SDR-Play and some wire. I have to think about where I can put a discone that my XYL won't object. K9EQ which Discone did you put up. I like the idea of 6M coverage, too.
    • KN4RFJ/Shawn : Good evening Odis!
    • W4IOD/Odis : Hey Shawn over in Bardstown
    • N0PXT/Shane : I run my node with an HT antenna so it can only handle 10 watts anyways.
    • KN4RFJ/Shawn : That will be good. I have done the same recently and it has made a significant improvement in temperature at high duty cycles.
    • N0PXT/Shane : Definitely use the fan stand. I only turn the fan on during this net otherwise my radio does fine on 5 watt the rest of the week. Just don't connect to Americalink 🙂
    • K3FZT/Steve : Thank you. I have an Yaesu SMB-201 fan stand that I can set the radio into.
    • KN4RFJ/Shawn : The 100 definitely gets hot, even on 5w. Probably best kept at home where it can be used with a booster cooler.

    • K7LW : That's what I was thinking with the IMRS and MESH. Since it's basically an intranet anyway, should work just fine. I'm getting ready to link five repeater sites using microwave 5GHz links, and setting up a MESH backbone. Just curious if anyone experienced any hiccups.
    • K7LW : There shouldn't be a room with a PDN.
    • AI5AI Don : Yes,I heard that. That's a NO NO!!
    • K9EQ/Chris : Don: He was running 5 watts on the FT2D.
    • K9EQ/Chris : If the network is doing its network thing (low ping times, minimal loss of packets, etc.), there shouldn't be any problems. Like other Internet applications, IMRS shouldn't care about the type of network.
    • K7LW : Has anyone used LMRS with a MESH Net? If so, any notable issues?
    • K7LW : GE All, hope your staying nice and cool where your at.
    • AI5AI Don : Bingo!!
    • AI5AI Don : was he running high power?

    • K7LW : Have a great evening everyone, and stay safe!
    • N0PXT/Shane : 73 all. Have a great week.
    • KN4RFJ : Good night all!
    • K7LW : Absolutely,
    • W4IOD/Odis : Everyone have a good evening and stay safe 73 de W4IOD SK SK
    • K9EQ/Chris : Pretty much anything in the rack needs to be double shielded - especially with the incredible sensitivity of today's receivers. It's also a good idea to keep cables carrying power away from the Rx cable.s
    • K7LW : The double shield is nice for reducing potential RFI issues.
    • K9EQ/Chris : And I agree with using 214 for jumper cables, especially if power is involved.
    • K7LW : Or Lynn for that matter. LOL
    • K7LW : I agree totally with that. If it's a tight spot, and a relatively short run I use LMR-400.
    • K9EQ/Chris : Oh, hardline is definitely better. Unfortunately the Navy has more money than Chris has.
    • W4IOD/Odis : For short runs where you need flexibility this works good for mehttps://www.dxengineering.com/parts/dxe-214
    • K7LW : You've heard the old saying about your weapon having been made by the lowest bidder? 😛
    • W4IOD/Odis : 🙂
    • K7LW : Government issue, need I say more? LOL
    • W4IOD/Odis : Buy better RG 214 🙂
    • K7LW : In all fairness this was in use aboard ships. So I'm sure that was a factor. But overall hardline does have better longevity.
    • K7LW : When I worked for the Navy we used to change out the RG-214 right about the 5 year mark, and replace it with fresh stuff.
    • K9EQ/Chris : Hardline is definitely better. I would question the 5 years. I've rarely had problems with LMR-400 even after 10 years.
    • K7LW : GE Odis, how ya been??
    • W4IOD/Odis : GE Lynn
    • K7LW : Hardline will outlast regular coax as well. Average life of coax before it starts to break down is 5 years. Hardline is considerably longer life.
    • KN4RFJ : I showed up late tonight, but as always, great info coming down
    • K7LW : I have six repeaters all running 7/8" hardline. I'm planning two more sites and plan to use the same cable.
    • K7LW : I would highly suggest calculating how much of a run your going to make, then order the cable with connectors already installed.
    • K7LW : With that, you'll also need a tool to prep the ends. The one I have I picked up "used" on eBay for $80
    • K7LW : Once you start getting into Hardline in general expect to pay upwards of $70 ea per connector for some cable.
    • KN4RFJ : Also, aren't LMR-600 connectors quite expensive?
    • K7LW : Works great
    • K7LW : I also use 5/8" linkage between the equipment.
    • KN4RFJ : Evening all
    • KN4RFJ : 1/2" hardline isn't too bad a price. OK for 100-200 ft
    • K7LW : I used 7/8" Heliax on all of my repeaters. Alittle more $$ but well worth the trouble in the long run.
