  • K9EQ-Chris : 73 all. A total of 25 people connected to the live stream. Thanks!
  • W4IOD-Odis : Everyone have a good evening and stay safe 73 de W4IOD SK SK
  • K9EQ-Chris : Latency is pretty good. The tool allows me to connect to "guests" to join the live stream. It can also take "calls" from "callers" using the smart phone app. So I suspect that's why low latency is needed.
  • KE0YJJ-RICK : smulcast is working fine little or NO LAG time . The simulcast is matching what is comning out of the hri 200 speaker jack. GOOD JOB CHRIS
  • W4IOD-Odis : Live audio ok on the iPhone and Podbean app running iOS 16.1.1
  • N9JTE-MARTY : (PodBean) OK I turned off all privacy options, ad blocking, contact blocking, private relay and it still is not playing. I can't find or think of anything else. Not really a big deal as FireFox is flawless.
  • K9EQ-Chris : Tnx for the info
  • KE0YJJ-RICK : Good evening Podcast working fine here in mn
  • W4IOD-Odis : Same here John
  • KF5NXR - John : VO1AX was 100% with no drops
  • N9JTE-MARTY : Yes I am poking around here and I'll see if there is anything else I can find.
  • KF5NXR - John : Thanks Chris! I see it now!
  • K9EQ-Chris : Marty: It's hard for me to test on the same computer that's hosting the stream. It would help if you can fiddle around and find something. I'll let podbean know, assuming they don't already.
  • K9EQ-Chris : They are provided by the retailer.
  • KF5NXR - John : Where are these coupons that Odis just spoke of?
  • N9JTE-MARTY : Yes I disabled blockers. No joy here.
  • K9EQ-Chris : I've had similar problems with Safari. Probably due to enhanced security. Try going into preferences for this web page and disable blocking. See if that helps.
  • N9JTE-MARTY : Chris the PodBeen live stream still not working for me on Safari. Does work on FireFox.
  • N9JTE-MARTY : Happy Monday from Trevor, WI
  • K9EQ-Chris : GE all. The live stream is running. If you can, please check it out and let us know how it works for you. http://podbean.com/lsw/MNWis
  • KF5NXR - John : Good Evening Odis! Looking forward to another night of words of wisdom from the net!
  • W4IOD-Odis : Hello John
  • W4IOD-Odis : Good evening all 11/28/2022
  • KF5NXR - John : Good Evening from Dallas, TX
  • KK4FWU-Phil : 73
  • W4IOD-Odis : Everyone have a good evening and stay safe Happy Thanksgiving 73 de W4IOD SK SK
  • N0PXT-Shane : Night all.
  • N0PXT-Shane : Same to you Dan!
  • KY4DWS-Dan : Very good to hear! Thanks for getting back with me. I'll try to join you all on the net one night. Glad I stumbled across it this evening, especially since our local repeater is not on your list 🙂 Have a great night and a wonderful Thanksgiving!
  • N0PXT-Shane : Ah yes, I don't own a FT-1 but I do have the FT-5D. Amazing radio. I even take it with me for search and rescue missions to beacon APRS since it's water resistant.
  • KY4DWS-Dan : Yaesu FT-1D. Hoping Santa might bring the FT-5DR this year lol.
  • N0PXT-Shane : Dan., Sure no problem and welcome! What radio are you using?
  • KY4DWS-Dan : Thanks Shane! I noticed there were three modes - I think it's on auto now, but I'll have to check the manual to be sure since it's not jumping out at me. Good tip. Appreciated!
  • N0PXT-Shane : Hey Dan, instead of being in Wires-X mode make sure the radio is in "AMS" or Automatic Mode Switching" That way you can hear both digital and analogue on the same memory or frequency.
  • KY4DWS-Dan : Hey all - Dan in Shelbyville KY, happened to turn on my HT for the first time in literally years and heard 'noise' - realized it might be data, hit wires-x, and boom there you all are. Thanks for a first tonight 🙂
  • N9JTE-MARTY : Hi Odis
  • N0PXT-Shane : Hello Phil
  • KK4FWU-Phil : good evening

  • AI5AI-Don : Good Night everyone. 73
  • W4IOD-Odis : Everyone have a good evening and stay safe 73 de W4IOD SK SK
  • N9JTE-MARTY : I also thought you could only use AM mode on 29.250 on the FT5DR. I never thought to try GM.
  • KC9IL : My FT-3 will only receive AM on 29.250.
  • N9JTE-MARTY : Cable map ~ Wow!
  • K0OQL-Joel : Seen it on fazebook
  • K9EQ-Chris : Never thought about using the FT5 on 29.250. Thanks for the hint Joel.
  • K0OQL-Joel : As seen on 'The Net' I used the FT5dr to monitor 29.250 GM function when I was away from home. More ham fun!

  • K9EQ-Chris : Going to test a BT mic on the FT5.
  • AI5AI-Don : Good night everyone 73
  • K3FZT-Steve : Good evening and thank you. 73 de K3FZT / Steve
  • KF5NXR - John : Getting past my bed time, night yall, 73!
  • K9EQ-Chris : I ran a DR1 with a real 6 dB gain on the Rx (UHF) and 120 watts output. No desense. But one hell of a duplexer.
  • KA1CNF-Steve : been meaning to...lol
  • KA1CNF-Steve : I guess i am just lazy to add anything there
  • K9EQ-Chris : KA1CNF: 210,000+ lookups on QRZ and no Bio? No pictures???!!!
  • KA1CNF-Steve : good to know about the same RX specs
  • KA1CNF-Steve : dr1x-fr would be easier to pull and try out than the dr2x installed at another site
  • K9EQ-Chris : DR1 and DR2 basically have the same Rx.
  • K9EQ-Chris : Yaesu specs are the minimum FCC requirements - probably what BC is doing. In my experience they do between 10 to 20 dB better. So for calculating your system, you should use closer to the actual numbers.
  • AI5AI-Don : either repeater
  • KA1CNF-Steve : Thank you!
  • KA1CNF-Steve : dr1x
  • KA1CNF-Steve : we may just pull a dr2x-fr from another site to try it out
  • KA1CNF-Steve : yep we also have a circulator on the repeater
  • KA1CNF-Steve : Thanks for the response and info!
  • KA1CNF-Steve : intermod rejection, spurious rejection and selectivity of yaesu similar to Bridgecom. Cannot find specs on Micor
  • KA1CNF-Steve : the micor had trouble until DCI 4 pole filter installed.
  • KA1CNF-Steve : mobile in a box bothers me also, I hear it too often from hams
  • AI5AI-Don : Chri is going where I was going.
  • W4IOD-Odis : Don, your on deck
  • AI5AI-Don : I can help. Maybe
  • KA1CNF-Steve : I am listening
  • W4IOD-Odis : rgr
  • KA1CNF-Steve : yes
  • W4IOD-Odis : Steve, I will mention it on air if that's ok?
  • KA1CNF-Steve : Does anyone have any comments or experience with a DR2X in a high RF environment? Ongoing debate at one of the local clubs to replace a Motorola Micor with something else. Some folks reject the Yaesu repeater outright saying it is just 2 mobiles in a box....thanks
  • W4IOD-Odis : Hello Joe

  • N9JTE-Marty : UPC codes?
  • K9EQ-Chris : Morse Code is something we can hear and write down. I.e., . −-−, −-−, ..−-−, etc. Where have you seen something that looks like Morse Code.
  • K9EQ-Chris : Serial Data Transmission - no

  • KF5NXR-John : Thanks Chris!
  • K9EQ-Chris : The Blue Parrott depends on what you want. I have the 350 from years back. Nice thing I discovered about them is that they now have apps and firmware updates that add the "new" features to old products.
  • N0ANE : I am also using cheap generic Chinese trucker headsets and they work just fine.
  • N0ANE : I’ve been much happier with the FTM 300 over the 100 or 400. None of the vox drop out problems that they had.
  • KF5NXR-John : To the gentleman that is using the Blue Parrott solution for bluetooth, what model number of headset is he using that works?

  • KF5NXR-John : Alright folks, having another meeting to held to, 73 and have a great week !
  • KC9IL-Warren : I think he called Yaesu Tech Support today.
  • KC9IL-Warren : We see his repeater and his personal call on the WIRES-X console (lights up green), but transmissions don't go thru. Inbound traffic is fine.
  • K9EQ-Chris : I don't think we have any more ideas. Next step would be to remote into his station and play around.
  • KC9IL-Warren : Still having the problem. Outbound transmissions on Rooms don't key up repeaters or nodes.
  • N0PXT-Shane : Warren, we haven't heard from him.
  • K9EQ-Chris : Haven't heard him
  • KC9IL-Warren : Did Ruffers check in regarding his transmit issue from last week?
  • K9EQ-Chris : Suggest running it off of the AC supply with the battery removed. That exposes the heat sink and may help it stay cooler. At 5 out you're putting 22 watts in.
  • K9EQ-Chris : I've ejected VK5RSC, we'll see if that helps.
  • KM6ARL : Arggh, you guys are right, it's set to Hi and while connected it will not let me change the setting. I will change after the net. Thanks.
  • AI5AI-Don : And we were talking about "LIDS" last week!
  • AI5AI-Don : You need to run the handheld at the lowest power swtting. The handheld will get hot.
  • K9EQ-Chris : Mostly depends on how much it's transmitting. I'd run it at the lowest possible power level. It's not designed for long-duration transmitting.
  • KM6ARL : In PDN mode does anyone else have a very hot (temperature) FT-3dr ?
  • W4IOD-Odis : MAX HEADROOM!!!
  • KF5NXR-John : Letting bit of looping! Goodness! GE Odis
  • W4IOD-Odis : GE John
  • AI5AI-Don : What is "Going to be 73"?
  • KF5NXR-John : yes or more in the past in the past 24 hours
  • N0PXT-Shane : a foot of rain!
  • KF5NXR-John : amazing places around us got a foot or more of rain, all we got was .37 inches here in Caddo Mills, TX. Go figure...
  • KF5NXR-John : Good Evening Everyone! Sorry I'm running a little late this evening!
  • AI5AI-Don : Hello Chris

  • AI5AI-Don : Hoedy Odis
  • W4IOD-Odis : HowDEE Don
  • W4IOD-Odis : Good evening all 8/22/2022
  • AI5AI-Don : Yes sir/ It had been that way here as well. Some sections of Dallas has received around 14 inches. i just got about 1.5 inches. but i'm about 90 miles south of Texas
  • N0PXT-Shane : really? Where I live here north of the Twin Cities I would say we are almost in drought conditions I think we got a little over an inch of rain last week which was the first decent rain in two months.
  • AI5AI-Don : Hello Shane, Right now Texas is very wet in some places.
  • N0PXT-Shane : Hi Don! How are things in Texas?
  • AI5AI-Don : Howdy y'all from Texas 08/22/2022
  • AI5AI-Don : Thanks Chris
  • W4IOD-Odis : Everyone have a good evening and stay safe 73 de W4IOD SK SK
  • K9EQ-Chris : 73 Don and may the coming week be LID-free.
  • AI5AI-Don : Good night everyone from Texas! 73
  • K9EQ-Chris : And yet another one: he story that most often makes the rounds in amateur radio circles is that some telegraphers used the lid of a Prince Albert tobacco can to better hear the sounder. These fellows were, in general, poor operators, and “lid” became the designation of any poor operator.
  • K9EQ-Chris : Last bit of previous message: Over time a poor or incapable operator that had been or was about to be “lifted” became known as a “LID”.
  • K9EQ-Chris : And another: One explanation was that when a relay office Telegrapher couldn’t handle the work on the wire he was assigned to, he was “lifted” off the job and reassigned or let go. In telegrapher parlance, when discussing such events over the wires, other operators shortened the word ” lifted” to ” li’d”. Over time a poor or incapable operator that had been or was about to be “li
  • K9EQ-Chris : The quote is from https://www.quora.com/profile/David-10668/
  • K9EQ-Chris : And there's this: Others may have a more plausible answer, but my recollection is that a Morse code operator who sends sloppy, erratic code sounds like he’s using the ‘lid’ off a jar rather than an actual telegraphy key. The term generally means a poor operator who causes problems for other operators.
  • W4IOD-Odis : Good night Joe
  • KM4NHN-Joe : Good night everyone. Eyelids are getting heavy
  • KM4NHN-Joe : lol
  • KK4FWU-Phil : lol i hear the music version often
  • K9EQ-Chris : And here's the musical version: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wiLtlz1e1Is
  • KM4NHN-Joe : I try to avoid that frequency as much as possible.
  • KK4FWU-Phil : i dont need to. thanks though
  • K9EQ-Chris : You can check here: https://www.repeater-builder.com/humor/how-to-sound-like-a-lid.html for instructions on how to be a LID.
  • KK4FWU-Phil : those are just jackasses
  • KM4NHN-Joe : There are plenty on 7.200
  • KK4FWU-Phil : ahhh
  • K9EQ-Chris : "LID" is a term used to indicate a station using, er, poor station practices. Comes from the ol' CW days. Don't know about the letters LID. Have to look that up. But "LID" = Lousy operator and, perhaps, somewhat annoying.
  • KM4NHN-Joe : A bad operator.
  • KF5NXR-John : I love the camera mic!
  • KK4FWU-Phil : what is a LID?
  • W4IOD-Odis : Keep preaching Don and I'll pass the hat
  • K9EQ-Chris : I typically assign 46100 - 46190 as a block. The extra port #'s are available for other things.
  • AI5AI-Don : Since the no code license came about allowed more to come in.

  • W4IOD-Odis : GE Steve
  • W4IOD-Odis : I heard just ribbing you a bit
  • K3FZT-Steve : Good evening.
  • AI5AI-Don : Odis. We do not have nets on the TXNX. That guy does not know how to use his radios. That was another Ares net. So far the two people that were net controls are VERY rude and WILL NOT listen to what they were told. As you can tell I have a very bad taste in my mouth from that group.

  • 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

  • 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
  • KZ5TX-Dan : Thanks Chuck

  • 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 : We can explain Fusion vs. WiRES-X on air. Are you listening?
  • KO4ZJU-Ric : Is fusion, wiresx or is wiresx ,fusion? And are both digital?

  • 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.
  • W4IOD-Odis : Hello Dan
  • KZ5TX-Dan : Howdy all, Hey Don, I'm hearing the 24 machine very well
  • K9EQ-Chris : GE all
  • W4IOD-Odis : Good evening all 6/20/2022
  • 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
  • AI5AI-Don : Howdy Odis
  • W4IOD-Odis : HowDEE Don
  • W4IOD-Odis : Good evening all 6/13/2022
