*****************************************************

NVIS DAY

 

Here are the details of our operation this Saturday, April22. Are you ready? 

Email your station logs to nvis@k8es.org

 

Operation is from 10 – 4 EDT.   Take a lunch break, enjoy each other’s company.  Transmit power should stay at 100 watts for accurate signal comparison. You may operate anywhere, home, club, portable.

 

We are segmenting the bands during the day to increase the probability of contacts and make it easier for antenna experiments:

 

10 – 12Noon - 80 meters:   Centered around 3.920

12Noon – 2 - 40 meters: Centered around 7.240

 2 – 4 - 160 / 60 meters:  Any part of the phone band on 160. 

 

Try to stay on Channel 3-5 on 60. Be careful of tuning. 

(Note the OHDEN frequency on 60, might be a place to start!)

 

Anchors:

W8EOC will be operating from Medina County EOC

 

W8SGT will be operating from the Ohio EOC

 

N8BHL will be operating from Delaware

 

W8ERD will operate from Ostrander (west of Delaware)

 

Digital:  OHDEN will be in operation for NVIS day. 

Operator are urged to try digital modes on 40, 60, and 80 meters!

Frequencies: 80 meters:  3.585  (voice coordination if necessary: 3605)

60 meters:  Channel 5403.5  40 meters: 7.046

 

Plan to send and receive messages:

THE PRIMARY MODE WILL BE OLIVIA 8-500 BUT WE WILL ACCEPT CHECK INS ON PSK31 AS WELL. WE WILL START ON 40 METERS AND MOVE TO 60 OR 80 IF SKIP DICTATES. I WILL NEED A COUPLE OF STATIONS AS VOLUNTEER NCS SCHEDULED DURING THE DAY.

 

I WILL EMAIL ONE OF THREE TEST MESSAGES TO EACH COUNTY CONTROL STATION PARTICIPANT. THE OBJECTIVE WILL BE TO SEND YOUR MESSAGE TO AS MANY COUNTIES AS YOU CAN AND RECEIVE ALL THREE. WHEN YOUR STATION CHECKS INTO THE NET YOU WILL LIST YOUR MESSAGE NUMBER AND THOSE THAT YOU NEED YET TO RECEIVE. THE MESSAGES WILL BE SHORT AND ONLY STRUCTURED TO GIVE PRACTICE IN EXTABLISHING CONTACT AND PASSING THEM.

 

AT END OF EVENT, PLEASE INCLUDE COPIES WITH YOUR CONTACT LOG EMAIL (ABOVE) AND EMAIL COPIES OF ALL MESSAGES RECEIVED TO W5UHQ@ARRL.NET

 ****************************************************************

Ohio’s NVIS antenna day is scheduled for April 22. In addition to 40 and 80 meters, we want to add 160 and 60 meters (a good 160 antenna should also operate on 60). With the band conditions in the trash, we need to work up alternative bands and plans to maintain communications across the state!  These new bands should make for some interesting antenna construction projects, so get your teams busy!!
