  • W4IOD-Odis : Your welcome Rick
  • KO4ZJU-ric : Thanks for info.
  • KO4ZJU-ric : From Lexington Ky
  • N0PXT-Shane : They can use the repeater but they will be in the same room as you.
  • KO4ZJU : When I connect to wires x through a local repeater do I tie up that repeater so no other radio can use that repeater?
  • KF5NXR-John : Well I was curious if you could run Wires X in a VM, based on that last answer, it sounds like you can!
  • K9EQ-Chris : Okay. Be interesting to hear what it is.
  • KF5NXR-John : I've got a good question tonight, has both myself and Dan KZ5TX scratching our heads!
  • W4IOD-Odis : And Hello Don
  • W4IOD-Odis : HowDEE Don
  • W4IOD-Odis : Good evening all 8/1/2022
  • KF5NXR-John : Evening Don from Texas as well!
  • K9EQ-Chris : Hello es GE
  • K0ORK-Chuck : evening everyone
  • AI5AI-Don : Hello everyone from Texas 08/01/2022
  • K0ORK-Chuck : GN all
  • W4IOD-Odis : Everyone have a good evening and stay safe 73 de W4IOD SK SK
  • K9EQ-Chris : Nice to hear about the fast no-questions-asked approach on the case crack!
  • KM6ARL : Thanks for the details on the bandwidth.
  • W4IOD-Odis : Thanks for the update Eric
  • W0EDG-Eric : Just a quick update on my FT5 cracked case. Yaesu emailed me tracking today. 10 business days from the day they received it to the day they shipped it back. No charge for repair.
  • W4IOD-Odis : 12.5KHz is the whole pie with C4FM there is no 25KHz
  • KM6ARL : if the we have 12.5K to split voice and data (6.25K) what happens to the other half of the 25K ?
  • K9EQ-Chris : John: Correct. You need a minimum version of firmware for the radio to do PDN at all. Without the firmware, the radio cannot be set to do PDN.
  • KF5NXR-John : Say its old enough (firmware) to connect into Wires X but doesn't allow to transmit say in PDN mode. My understanding the 400 works fine for everything except PDN mode.
  • KZ5TX-Dan : I will ask Bill for the firmware ver of his 400
  • KF5NXR-John : Say for PDN mode....
  • KF5NXR-John : Would firmware on the radio itself cause the radio not to work on XP perhaps?
  • KE0YJJ-Rick : Good evening everyone. I do believe that QST applies
  • W4IOD-Odis : Hello Dan & Chuck has you on the list
  • W4IOD-Odis : HowDEE Don

  • guest_177 : test
  • KO4ZJU-Ric : Yes, thanks for clarifying .
  • K9EQ-Chris : Seems like HF conditions are always bad on Field Day. Too bad they don't hold it a month or two earlier when band conditions are much, much better.
  • K9EQ-Chris : Okay, I'll answer on-air.
  • KO4ZJU-Ric : Yep, direct connection

  • K9EQ-Chris : 73 all
  • KO4ZJU-Ric : Thanks
  • KO4ZJU-Ric : Cool
  • K9EQ-Chris : Ric: Understand, it's actually pretty straight-forward. We can talk more about that in a future net.
  • KO4ZJU-Ric : Trying to understand the inner workings or difference between nodes and repeaters.
  • K9EQ-Chris : I believe he is.
  • W4IOD-Odis : Sorry Don
  • W4IOD-Odis : Everyone have a good evening and stay safe 73 de W4IOD SK SK
  • KO4ZJU-Ric : KG5AWL IS NOW CONNECTED THROUGH A REPEATER that has a node connected to 21493 room?
  • W4IOD-Odis : it's either PDN mode or Portable HRI mode since you're in the room you're in Portable HRI mode
  • KO4ZJU-Ric : I’m listening in on my ftm-400 in direct digital mode through a wires x node. Did I state that right?
  • KE0YJJguest_9282 : hello
  • guest_9282 : If the repeater is set into the DPID That verrides dgid . Then he can set the dgid to 00
  • KZ5TX-Dan : Howdy Odis, missed seeing you on the Princeton room earlier, hope all is well.

  • typodar :
  • W4IOD-Odis : Everyone have a good evening and stay safe 73 de W4IOD SK SK
  • KK4FWU-Phil : We already have a node on that frequency, plus a repeater.
  • W4IOD-Odis : Night Don
  • KO4ZJU-RIC : Got it thanks. ARRL
  • AI5AI-Don : Good night everyone. 73
  • K9EQ-Chris : Will be doing an after-the-net
  • W4IOD-Odis : You have the google
  • KO4ZJU-RIC : Yes I heard of it but have not found the resource
  • K9EQ-Chris : YSF servers are back up after a recurrence of the same problem. That said, I expect the servers may be up and down for a bit to come.
  • KO4ZJU-RIC : Phil, when I was using your repeater to connect my node what was happening? Was I tying up your repeater? Or should I get back to eating the elephant to find the answer?
  • W4IOD-Odis : Rick, no disrespect intended but have you ever heard of a “Band Plan”?
  • KZ5TX-Dan : First photo is in direct mode, second photo is in access mode
  • KO4ZJU-RIC : So the answer is don’t use a repeater frequency to enter in transceiver settings on the node but use a simplex frequency.
  • W4IOD-Odis : It might make things more complicated as to what band I need to transmit on if the 300 was capable of doing that.
  • KZ5TX-Dan : Coming in a minute
  • AI5AI-Don : Ok, sure
  • KZ5TX-Dan : I can send you a photo of the screen when it is on Port HRI if you like.
  • AI5AI-Don : Thanks Dan. I figuried he was talking out of school!
  • KZ5TX-Dan : Just wanted to agree with you that on the 300,I don't think that you have access to a second frequency
  • AI5AI-Don : Yepper
  • W4IOD-Odis : He was Dan
  • KZ5TX-Dan : Hey Don AI5AI - are you over here
  • KO4ZJU-RIC : Check
  • KK4FWU-Phil : You need to use a different frequency
  • KK4FWU-Phil : why are you using my repeater frequency for your node Ric?
  • KO4ZJU-RIC : I’m still chewing on the elephant, but I have question on the wiresx node set up. In the transceiver settings do I have to have a repeater frequency entered in that section? I’m in digital using hri-200 with my ftm 400dx as my downer radio. I hope I’m asking this question the right way.
  • W4IOD-Odis : Slow I guess
  • KK4FWU-Phil : dont see it
  • W4IOD-Odis : Hello Phil, I sent you a text
  • AI5AI-Don : Hello Phil
  • KK4FWU-Phil : evening

  • W4IOD-Odis : Everyone have a good evening and stay safe 73 de W4IOD SK SK
  • KO4ZJU-RIC : Appreciate the net.
  • K9EQ-Chris : The Yaesu error messages leave a little bit to be desired.
  • KO4ZJU : check. i have a ftm 400dxr on the way to go digital. im using my 991a now
  • K9EQ-Chris : One thought, if you are running analog then you won't be able to connect. We're digital only.
  • KO4ZJU : might because im using analog?

  • K9EQ-Chris : 2022/06/06 17:43:00 Connect Request From KO4ZJU-ND (75586)
  • K9EQ-Chris : You've been trying to connect to 11493, which is the node connected to a repeater. You want to connect to 21493 which is the room.
  • KO4ZJU : how about a node #i can connect to, my node is 75586 my room is 85586. the 21493 stats connection busy
  • N0PXT-Shane : 21493
  • KO4ZJU : whats the room number you guys are in?
  • N0PXT-Shane : Thanks for the question KO4ZJU!
  • KM6ARL : I tried on the radio but did not get in, question: Yaesu wires-X gives two ids one for the room and one for the you(or radio). Can you make a direct call to the radio(you) id ? (kinda like Brian question).
  • KO4ZJU : thanks Chris for the answer, i agree that radio is why im doing this. just curious. 🙂
  • KO4ZJU : Hello folks, I have a question about hri-200. is it possible to use without a radio? i was watching a youtube video and i saw the guy plug a microphone with a some kinda a battery rig and he talked and received.
  • VE3IGN-Don : Rgr
  • K9EQChris : They are building a network similar to ours, but somewhere they have switched both the YSF side and the WiRES-X side to MNWis.
  • VE3IGN-Don : ok
  • K9EQChris : No
  • VE3IGN-Don : Permentantly
  • K9EQChris : I forced VK5RSC out.
  • W4IOD-Odis : VK5RSC has left the MNWis room
  • guest_8921 : Seem like its the same station every week causing the loop issue. Can you block the station. VK5RSC ????????????

  • KF0GEX-Paul : Just testing... Hi all!
  • N0ANE : Just like a real net ... a loop
  • N0ANE : DR-2X's always come back to life if I cycle through commands on the second receiver. Not fun to get into a city water tower on a holiday weekend.
  • N0ANE : I believe members of the Texas group has been using the simple clock timer to restart each night. Not going to impress anyone but it keeps from frustrating inconvenient trips. Thankfully my DR-2x
  • N0ANE : As I continue to "play" with the FT-5, it is exactly as you said, Chris. Now I've got a problem that I never knew I had. :-;
  • W4IOD-Odis : FB
  • KZ5TX-Dan : test

  • K9EQ-Chris : GE all
  • KK4FWU-Phil : 73 odis.. thanks
  • KK4FWU-Phil : Rick give me a shout the local repeaters. Plenty of people around will help. Odis is the guru for wires x around here. Im sure he can help at some point. watch the video he sent you
  • W4IOD-Odis : Everyone have a good evening and stay safe 73 de W4IOD SK SK
  • AI5AI-Don : Goodnight everyone. 73
  • W4IOD-Odis : Rick, watch the video best advice I can give you. you're going to get blocked from repeaters & rooms messing around if you don't know what your doing.
  • KK4FWU-Phil : Odis can you disconnect when its over?
  • KO4ZJU : 😁
  • KK4FWU-Phil : Yes Rick the KK4FWU Repeater is connected to the MNWis room for the net. Dont touch anything 😉
  • KO4ZJU : I’m listening now on 444.125
  • KO4ZJU : Kk4fwu is same net? I guess you can tell I need more research into how repeaters work. I just passed my tech back in April , I have no experience in electronics. My expertise is carpentry. My interest got peeked while getting my 107 license for flying drones commercial
  • W4IOD-Odis : Yes Rick the 442.100 is the W4IOD repeater
  • W4IOD-Odis : Gremlins
  • W4IOD-Odis : I'm sure Rick appreciates it Phil it seems to keep disconnecting.
  • KK4FWU-Phil : I connected it back Odis.
  • KO4ZJU : I guess that 442.100 is your repeater?
  • KO4ZJU : I will do more research on wiresx. I haven been hooking up to America link, I think that’s what it’s called, seeing different nodes available
  • W4IOD-Odis : Must have a good antenna
  • KO4ZJU : Yep
  • W4IOD-Odis : KO4ZJU Rick, are you still listening to us on the net?
  • KO4ZJU : Thanks O.

  • W4IOD-Odis : Hello Phil
  • KO4ZJU : So when I push wiresx on my y991a I’m leaving c4fm? Seems as though I have access to group monitoring in both modes. I can’t get to wires x directly from fm mode. I have to be in c4fm to enter wiresx
  • W4IOD-Odis : System Fusion - Open specification with proprietary vocoder system available from Yaesu. Uses AMBE CODEC with C4FM modulation. The newest digital radio mode while C4FM is open standard the Wires X part is not and is only available (Proprietary) to Yaesu. To date Yaesu is the only manufacturer of radios for C4FM. T
  • KO4ZJU : Is c4fm different from wires x
  • KO4ZJU : Cool, look forward to it. I will watch this one though.
  • W4IOD-Odis : It's not that kind of video Rick I do have a presentation that covers that, but I have not applied it to narration and an actual video yet.
  • KO4ZJU : Perfect timing on the YouTube video Otis, that was going to be my question tonight. Explain deference in digital modes.
  • KO4ZJU : On the net kkfwu.
  • K9EQ-Chris : My latest YouTube uplink - nothing to do with Ham Radio. Just me flying my aircraft around a new housing development near me. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2vXbEggtp2w&t Nice if you want to just laze around in the air.

  • W9AUV-Terry : no audio from wa7hpk
  • WO1VES-Brian : Yeah, I took my eyes off it, and it walked off all by itself. It even turned itself on and keyed up in the middle of the night.
  • W4IOD-Odis : Brian, did it walk off on it's own?
  • WO1VES-Brian : The last keyup I have on that radio ID was on my portable repeater that was up at the hamfest at 4:39 AM Eastern, when I was sound asleep. GPS points to the fairground.
  • WO1VES-Brian : So if anyone sees the radio ID E0Iuk show up, please let me know the call sign and GPS coordinates that show with it. Thanks!
  • WO1VES-Brian : Greetings All, I'm not sure if I should mention this over the air or not. But over the weekend, my FT1D was stolen. I was at a two day ham fest where you camp overnight at your table. Stupid me, I got tired, and accidentally left my FT1D sitting outside on a table at my site, and when I got up in the morning it was gone.

  • AI5AI-Don : Chris. He may be talking about the YCS network.
  • AI5AI-Don : ok. Thank you. I'll look it up.
  • K9EQ-Chris : Don: Sort of. We had a couple of contributions. They're in the project area. The Python solution has been much improved. Need to get back to the author for an update.
  • AI5AI-Don : Chris. Did you put a third party program, on hamoperator. com, to set up times to switch rooms for nets etc.

  • K9EQ-Chris : Twice now I've forgotten to shut down the chat room. And twice not there has been no spam??!! What's happening? Has spam gone away? Well, I think not. Perhaps there is some better security that has been implemented. Anyway, methinks I will leave MNWis chat available all week and see how it goes.

  • W4IOD-Odis : Where's the fun in that Brian. GE
  • WO1VES-Brian : It would help a lot if the operator of AmericaLink would lock the bridge to only connect to AL
  • K9EQ-Chris : There are limited ways to teach people how to run a network. All they need to do is prevent the WiRES-X side from doing a room change.
  • AI5AI-Don : I hate it when these LIDS do this. I wish their radios burn up!!!!!
  • K9EQ-Chris : No. They are connected to the WiRES-X Room #21,493.
  • WO1VES-Brian : I think that AmericaLink connection is the bridge link for the Wires-X to Hotspots. It's supposed to be connected to the AmericaLink room. I've found it connected to my Wolf-Den room before. I think it gets brought over accidentally by a hotspot user. I've just logged into my Wires-X program and disconnected it from my room when it happens.
  • K9EQ-Chris : AL is connecting to MNWis. So kind of them to carry our net on their network, don't you think?
  • AI5AI-Don : texas Nexus
  • AI5AI-Don : I'm looking at America link and YES we are on their link. They have done this to the

  • Shawn-KN4RFJ : Actually, I have noted the same frequency drift pattern on the DR-1 but thought there was something wrong with my SDR. Good to know I’m not crazy.
  • W4IOD-Odis : I use SCU-19 by Yaesu Joel

  • N9AGCGreg : thanks geez i was looking everywhere but the right spot
  • K9EQ-Chris : Main page of HamOperator.com - scroll to the bottom
  • N9AGCGreg : where did you say i could find the russian frequencies again i can't find them
  • K9EQ-Chris : I doubt Yaesu one change mode whilst connected. Perhaps that was the problem? I have to admit I was a little confused by the problem.
  • W9LBR-Bill : FYI - with my FT2 in P-HRI mode -- the A/B button was not effective until I disconnected from the active connection.
  • AD0MI-Pete : clearly they needed to include more buttons into the magic button combos to enable each mode on the radio
  • K9EQ-Chris : It's hard to imagine how Yaesu could have made the HRI/PDN/Direct/Whatever more complicated.
  • K9EQ-Chris : The change was probably part of a security component that got updated.
  • K9EQ-Chris : I see chat doesn't allow '/' anymore. Just did an update of the chat software.
  • W4IOD-Odis : See you all bunched up too

  • K9EQ/Chris : Some say Tuesday is Twosday. I disagree. It's semicolon day. 2/22/22 = ';' Here's how. It's really 02/22/2022 which is 0111 1011. In other words Hex '3B' which is ASCII for ';'. So tomorrow is semicolon day.

  • k3fzt/kh6 Steve : K9EQ--I like to search before I ask. I prefer text to audio (I grew up reading encyclopedias and listening to music, not words--still trying to get the podcast habit.) Thanks for IDing by connection to your YSF node as an FT1. I'd been wondering. In fact, I'm using a DVMEGA Cast out here in Hawai'i--direct connection to the servers. No RF involved.

  • AI5AI-Don : Well it's more than I had. Thank you.
  • AD0MI/Pete : 46100-46122 would actually do. Might be worth rebooting the computer and router to see if that clears anything up.
  • KC9ONY/Tom : FYI, when I look myself up, the info isn't totally correct or is outdated. Hope it works out for you,.

  • AI5AI-Don : Thank you sir. I'll contact him As soon as the net is over
  • AE0DL/Karl : UDP 46000 thru 46200 (I think that's the right ones) are open and forwarded the the Wires-x machine. Are there others?
  • KC9ONY/Tom : don't know how accurate it is
  • KC9ONY/Tom : yes
  • AI5AI-Don : Tom. Was that you who sent the contact info?
  • AI5AI-Don : Yes sir, I'm happy as well.
  • W4IOD/Odis : Glad that worked out for you Don
  • KC9ONY/Tom : forgot to change my guest name, sorry
  • AD0MI/Pete : you'd think it does. You could also try using nmap from another internet connection to scan the firewall for open ports
  • AI5AI-Don : I don't know who sent that link, but thank you very much. That was what I needed.
  • AE0DL/Karl : I agree. Does the test create outbound traffic that I should be able to see with Wireshark?
  • AD0MI/Pete : then I would double check the firewall. Something isn't right.
  • AE0DL/Karl : Windows Firewall is off and AV software is disabled.
  • AE0DL/Karl : As far as I can tell all ports are opened for outbound.
  • AD0MI/Pete : in addition check av software and built in firewalls on the PC.
  • AE0DL/Karl : We have a new router and internet connection at TCFMC
  • AD0MI/Pete : I've always opened them bi-directional
  • guest_3062 : https://nuwber.com/person/563a2ba698f8a849c1e7da64
  • guest_3062 : Possible contact info for W8TPB
  • AE0DL/Karl : Outgoing? We have added the inbound UDP ports to port forwarding.
  • guest_3559 : Karl: it's testing that the ports are open to the internet. It's needed for the communications protocols to work correctly.
  • AI5AI-Don : It has been turned off at Texas Nexus
  • AE0DL/Karl : Trying to get the TCFMC repeater back on the air with wires. We keep failing the Port Test on the Wires-x software. What is it really testing?
  • K9EQ/Chris : Well, that's a major reason why I dropped support for FCS. You're only choice is to drop the FCS connection.
  • AI5AI-Don : Wish I could, but he is using the FCS reflector.
  • K9EQ/Chris : I'd block his IP. That works immediately. Proper YSF reflector software can also block calls and radio IDs. 🙂
  • W4IOD/Odis : Per updated FCC regs he's supposed to have an email address listed
  • AI5AI-Don : Thanks Shane, I looked as well.
  • N0PXT/Shane : I looked in the FCC database and no additional there. Sorry.
  • AI5AI-Don : Thanks Odis
  • W4IOD/Odis : HowDEE Don, sorry I can't help on that one IDK Donald
  • AI5AI-Don : Thanks Shane
  • N0PXT/Shane : Sorry Don I don't.
  • AI5AI-Don : Hello everyone. Does anyone have contact information for Donald W8PTB out of Arlington Ohio? He has his hotspots bridging the America link over to the Texas Nexus. He does not have an email address in QRZ.
