DX to far side of the Moon ?

KH6WM Warren Munro
 

The recent Chinese satellite landing on the far side of the Moon has raised the question of how to communicate when out of line of sight ?

Solution:  they launched a relay satellite visible to both Earth and the "far side" well ahead of time. It works FB. 

But a long path.

Workshop on setting up Wnlink Express for use on VhF/UHF

KH6FHI Joe Tabrah
 

Dear EARC Member,
Joe Seproni, AH0A, our ARRL section manager, asked me to post the following announcement on his behalf:

EARC/ARES is planning a workshop to help Amateurs with interest in setting up their portable Windows computers and VHF transceivers to operate the Winlink Express email program, and other digital modes.

The workshop will physically connect your computer to your VHF transceiver, installing Winlink Express and making VHF gateway and peer-to-peer contacts.  Participants must bring their equipment to the workshop.

The software training will include using some of the Winlink  features – sending and receiving email via VHF RF connections, message templates, GPS position reporting, ICS-309 logs, images editing, attachments and communication sessions for VHF packet and Internet.  Time permitting both Packet and VARA software modems will be installed and tested.

Cost of the three-hour workshop and interconnect materials may be as much as $30 per attendee, to be paid at the door. Alternatively, there may be options to use materials procured by the participant that will lower costs.

Attendance is limited and  subject to confirmation equipment is compatible with suggested cabling choices. The number of students is limited.  Register early!

If you are interested, please email me at ah0a@.... Include the (1) PC model, (2) the version of Windows, (3) your transceiver model and (4) cables you believe are correct for digital modes -- ; information required for us to recommend preordering components.  Once the computer and transceiver models are known we will recommend cabling for your equipment and a method to purchase them.

The workshop is organized around use of the Easy Digi interface board, which can be assembled in the first 30 minutes of the workshop.  Software set up and verification of other devices will be supported, for example, Signalink.  Please let us know what (5) interconnection interface, other than the workshop recommended Easy Digi board you want to use for software setup.

The workshop will be held from 6:30 pm to 10:30 pm on Saturday March 16th at the Manoa Public Library.

If there is a lot of interest additional workshops may be scheduled later.

It’s renewal season again! (Sorry for the delay)

WH7GG Keith Higa
 

CQ CQ EARC!

It’s a new year, and time to renew your EARC membership if you didn’t already do so last year. Dues are the same low price that it’s been: 20 green stamps ($20.00).

For those who have sent in renewal membership forms this month and noticed the absence of a PayPal option on our response email, we apologize for that...we had to re-do and re-open our PayPal account. I’m pleased to report that the new PayPal account is now live, and you can send your dues to treasurer@... via PayPal.

(This is also why we delayed our usual begin-the-year membership drive. To the 37 or so members who have renewed in advance, thanks!)

Of course, the old fashioned way still works, and you can mail them to our PO Box 30315, Honolulu, HI 96820, or give it directly to me at any EARC general membership meeting. I will be there with receipt book in hand. 

If you have any questions on your membership status, I would be more than happy to check for you; just ask. 

As always, thank you for your support of the Emergency Amateur Radio Club and our mission to advance amateur radio in the islands.

Mahalo and 73,

Keith Higa
Treasurer/Membership Chair

There is a new DMR repeater configured but not yet online in the Kaneohe Bay Area.  The repeater belongs to the HEARDn group, information as follows:

RX447.6500 MHz
Shift5.000 MHz
CC1

Give it a show when it gets online, date TBD.

Aloha,

Dis n Dat

KH6WG Skawamae Kawamae
 

EARC All,
Apparently, I failed to notify all that the 146.880 Diamond Head is Hard Down until further notice.  There is a problem with damage to the feed line so the repeater has been shut down.

Saturday afternoon, each of the DEM repeaters were in stand alone mode.  There seems to be a problem with the IP Network.  

Thanks for your patience.

Aloha,
de KH6WG

Tonight’s PACSECARES Net is Cancelled

KH7HO Clem
 

To all,

The DEM and State RACES repeaters used for the weekly Sunday 8 p.m. PACSECARES Net are stand alone and are not linked. Therefore, tonight’s net is cancelled. Hopefully, the links will be repaired by tomorrow.

Please give this announcement widest distribution.
