2020

Well we are 8 month into this interesting year. And I realized that its been almost a years since my last post. I guess all I can to say is life keep setting in the way of my hobbies.

I have done a little with Ham Radio and will post about my adventures soon. I am trying to focus on learning Morse Code and a couple of other things I will post about soon.

Until then stay safe and happy.

AMSAT on Fusion

I was looking around for something a little more than America Link which in my opinion is starting to sound like CB and you can’t get a word in. Searching around I found a new YSF Reflector, AMSAT N. America. The reflector was set by K5WH (Walter). What a nice guy, from talking to him I hear he also runs an AMSAT reflector on DMR.

YSF 11689 for the Fusion

98006 for DMR

Water stated that he may set up a link do you can go from Fusion to DMR and vice-versa. My understanding of the DMR group its a nerd group. People talking about Code-plugs, building, Sats and everything under the sun. So everyone should fit right in. Stop by and say hi.

Categories and Rooms/Nodes

Below are all the YSF rooms and the FCS server two rooms. Which Most will use for North America. FCS1 are Countries like FCS00106=United States of America and FCS00118=Spain. Checkout all 5 servers on pistar or xReflector.

To add rooms to the category list on the FT2D

Go you the configuration and select WiresX. The Edit Category Tag. I called the YSF, FCS1, FCS2, etc. Now when you go to a room via Wires-X you can select ADD and put in the category you like. This should get you started. For more information read the Wires-X manual for your radio.

Wires-x with Zumspot

I have several friend that can not with the wires-X button to control the Zumspot. So I figured I would share my findings.

If you can not connect via wires-x, you will need to follow these steps. I suggest having two browser tabs open to pi-start.local. Have one set on Dashboard and the other, set to Configurations.

  1. First key up and see what your BER is, on the Dashboard. If is red and high BER the Wires-X key will not work.
  2. in Configuration pick a room that is not busy. I use FCS00204 (Arizona) for this.
  3. Check BER again as it can change per rooms.
  4. on the Configuration tab. Goto Expert and then to MMDVHost and scroll down to Modem.
  5. Change the RXoffset from 0 to -200. and apply changes. (this is fast as its not rebooting pi-star).
  6. Switch to Dashboard tab and retry.
  7. If the number goes down, go back to Config tab and go up by 50. i.e. -250. Then keep adjusting till is shows 1.0 or even better 0.0. Remember to always apply changes.

As you get closed you can adjust up or down in increments of 25 i.e. -275 to get is spot on.

I leave mine set of the quite room and have programmed the rooms that I connect to often. Makes switching on the fly a lot easier. For adding rooms check your Wires-X manual. This works for both the FT1XD and FT2D

If you have an OpenSpot you are not left out. Here is a like to a Forum post that explains how to do this via DTMF.

Comparing a suburban site with a hilltop location on 20m using WSPRlite – SOTABEAMS

I have often wondered how much better an open hilltop site (SOTA summit?) might be than my suburban home location. This is the results of an experiment to gather some preliminary data. The experiment was carried out on 19th October 2018 using the WSPRlte/DXplorer.net system. The two sites were: What3words site locations: mason.apes.flamingo (hilltop site) asserts.heap.last (suburban site).Hilltop siteHilltop siteSuburban siteTwo identical small transmitting loops were used at each site. These were 1.5 metres above the ground (measured to the base of the loop) and orientated so that their nulls were N-S. The loops were allowed to cool to ambient temperature before being adjusted for resonance (this is important where the loop is stores at room temperature as when it cools to outdoor ambient temperature, which was 5C on the test day, the tuning will drift).Each loop was connected to a WSPRlite with a USB battery pack and keep-alive load. The WSPRlites were started at the same time to run synchronized (a feature of the WSPRlite system). They were started in the same location (suburban site) and one was transported transmitting into a load, to the hilltop site.The WSPRlites were set to the same power level (200 mW) and the frequency difference between them was 38 Hz.The experiment was left to run for five hours. DXplorer.net provided the analysis in the form of a histogram. This only used simultaneous spot data which served to remove much statistical noise. Over the test period, a total of 118 simultaneous readings were gathered.ResultsBy eye the median is about 7 dB (the hilltop site being better than the suburban site). [Tip: right click and open the image in a new tab for a better view]ConclusionsWithin the constraints of the experiment, the hilltop site outperformed the suburban site by about 7 dB. Thus to equal a station running 100 Watts on the hilltop site, a station at the suburban location would need to run 500 Watts. These results are valid only on transmit. The hilltop site will also have a much lower noise floor – improving reception by an even greater margin. Without doing more experiments it is not possible to say if the difference is due to being on a hilltop or just due to the more open nature of the site.Ideally, additional data would be gathered to give a more robust result.

MilSpec Quality in a Compact Size

Commradio CTX-10

Last spring I purchased a Commradio CTX-10 from Universal Radio. Already owning a KX2 and loving it. I didn’t need another QRP rig just want to check it out and Glad I did. I have gotten it out a couple of time, mostly taking to HiP ( Hams in the Park) that we have every other Friday. I have gotten good signal report on SSB. I like that it has a built-in battery pack and tuner. It’s small and easily packable. With its Extruded Aluminum case, it’s almost bulletproof plus it doesn’t heat up when running Digital. All in all its a great rig if you’re looking for something that is portable and easy to use. It is so easy to use I am going to set it up as a goto station for new hams during Field Day. You can’t mess it up and if somehow it does, just reset.

My only cons are the tuner is not as quick as my KX2 and may have to do it a couple of times for the best SWR. Second is the switching relay in CW is loud and a little slow. Other than that its a keeper. I hope Commradio releases an update that will fix these issues.

On the images below the bar causing the missing text is from my camera catching the OLED refreash. Another good article about this radio.

FT2DR, What can I do?

Now that I have a Yaesu FT2 I wonder what could be done with a nice big touch screen. It as all the bells and whistles like VHF/UHF, GPS and Digital (Fusion). I wanted more…

Here a a few of the Things that will be easier to do with the FT2

Winlink/APRS Link Allows you to send winlink email to other users or directly to email using APRS. This will allow me to stay in touch when Celluar is dead or not available while 4 Wheeling or camping. That is along there is a APRS gateway around.

SMSGate. Send and Receive Text messages from your radio.

APRS2SOTA Allow you to Spot yourself when you don’t have Cellular service. A message contains Summit, Frequency you will be working and the mode. That is you are able to ping an APRS gateway.

One other item is using it for APRS gateway on ISS. Should be easier to send preset messages. Sure there is more you can do and these items can be done with other radios like a VX8. Its just nice to have the big screen. Let me know if you have other uses for the FT2?

Wires-X with Zumspot

Here is a little tip for using wire-x with your Zumspot.

When using your FT2D with a Zumspot. Click the X key then Menu and All. This will show you all the available Reflectors. Once you select one you want to connect to just click Back and your connected. This should work on other modles also like the FT1XD I just havent tryed it yet.
