Everything You Ever Wanted to Know about SOTA

Brad (the Voice of the Village) Berger
 

Here is a lot of good information on SOTA (Summits On The Air). Summits On The Air is a scheme that encourages amateur radio operators to go portable and work from high places around the country, and around the world – You don’t need to be a mountaineer to take part, and if the idea of climbing mountains and hills in the name of amateur radio doesn’t appeal, then you can be a ‘chaser’ sitting comfortably at home working the more adventurous SOTA operators. My friend Ken KD9PPH in Spfld. IL sent this to me.

Thanks guys having me present my SOTA gear/antennas etc ...here’s the links to topics in my show Please note: I’m no expert or EE but just an experimenter at heart and this is where I stole my intel on how to make my EFHWs and traps etc ...so to speak!  Have fun, Steve/wGOAT (WG0AT)
 
EFHW 49:1 transformers - warning this is a deep topic (was for me?) with many opinions on how to do it! 
 
Webpages:
 
I highly recommend watching Adam's video on how to make a trap first before attempting one
Adam/K6ARK DIY Traps for EFHW  (video) https://youtu.be/-qfCQTZSIus

Also here’s a very good presentation by John/K1JD who built a 5-band trapped EFHW for his SOTA adventures

Hi Ron,

 

We see lots of audio interface variations in the Phaser FT8 Transceiver group and there hasn’t been one we haven’t been able to get working, regardless of the age of the computer/laptop or whether the standard /8” 3-circuit ‘stereo’ plugs or the 4-circuit ‘combiner’ plug for just a single jack are used.  At the end of the day, audio comes out of the computer and audio goes to the computer.

 

If you have doubts about using one of the audio in/out combiners,  you could try one of the inexpensive ‘USB Sound Adapters’, as a number of us use for connection to the Phaser rig.  I use one and it’s great for providing separate audio in and out lines to the rig.  Mine is called 3D Sound and is shown here … https://www.amazon.com/s?k=3d+sound+usb&ref=nb_sb_noss_1

 

If you have any problems or further questions, I’d be happy to help you offline, either here at my shack or yours.

Subject: [TLARC] Using Sound Card Interfaces with New PC's or Laptops

 

I have been using an MFJ-1275 sound card interface for several years for digital modes like psk31 and more recently, FT8.  My model uses RS-232 serial input for control from the laptop and patch cords to the mic and external speaker and line level jacks on the laptop.  And the 8-pin cord to my Ic-735.

I use usb to rs-232 converter dongles to provide the control for the 1275 and for CAT to my Icom 735.

All works just fine.

My concern is the age of the laptop I use for my Ham activities.

My "newer" laptop that I will use sometime in the future doen't have separate jacks for mic in/spkr out.  I know there are splitters available to separate the channels.  I am concerned they might not be sufficient to work with my 1275 interface.  Especially after an eham posting about hardships with Win10 laptops to use the external split rather than the built in speakers.

Does anyone have experience along this line?  Success or failure?

Thanks - 73,

Hello MARC members and friends,

On our Net last night, we were told about a ham who has been reported missing.  John Pritchett, W4BDA, is 66 years old, short, 390 pounds,  long gray/white hair and beard.  The picture below is from his QRZ page - with short hair and without a beard.  He drives a gray or white 94 Buick Park Avenue with a mag-mount antenna.  

Please help get the word out.   If anyone knows or hears anything, please get in touch with Cumberland County Sheriff's office 931-484-6176.

Amateur radio friends (and clubs) around the globe—

Our Deep Dixie Contest Club (DDCC) wants to extend a warm and welcoming invitation to you and any/all of your members to join us for our next iteration of the Zoom™ Learning Series.  So, please pass out this information freely and widely among all your radioaficianados friends.

Details are shown below.  Please let me know if I can answer any questions or provide further information.

[FYI, a couple of the previous Zoom™ Learning Series presentations can be found on our DDCC YouTube Channel — https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCHSrV6IRXBbXGZn40Z8CFYw/videos  ]

—Larry   NN5O (ex-WB5EIN)
President, Deep Dixie Contest Club

Announcing!   DDCC Zoom™ Learning Series Presentation

Date:  Thursday, October 22, 2020
Time:  7:30 PM Central Time (0030Z) — 5:30 Pacific; 8:30 Eastern
Topic:  RS-232 Nirvana for the Radio Contester
Description:  EVERY contester uses much RS-232 and USB in the shack.   RS-232 as a native device is not available on most desktops, and zero laptops.
We all know the nightmare of USB-to-Serial ports.   My talk is about eliminating USB-to-Serial from the ham shack, and using (surplus, but modern)
Serial Port Server technology to completely eliminate the problem.   I go into how it works, what is available, and how to use the technology both
in your local shack or to remote your automation around the world over IP.  (Gerry has presented this information to hams around the world.)
Presenter:  Gerry Hull W1VE/VE1RM
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Notice:  We plan to open the Zoom room a bit early so everybody can get their settings adjusted and we’re ready to roll at 0030z.  Look for some DDCC officers online around 0015z.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Here is the official invitation that you can use on October 22

Larry Anderson is inviting you to a scheduled Zoom meeting.

October monthly meeting is IN PERSON tomorrow night

David Andrews
 

Good evening,

 

The October meeting of TLARC will be held at the Toqua Pavilion in Tellico Village tomorrow evening, October 21st, starting at 7:00 PM. The pavilion is covered to protect from the elements, so the meeting will happen rain or shine. Some of us will be enjoying ourselves for a socially distanced dinner at the Toqua Sports Bar & Grill at 6:00 PM. For your maximum enjoyment, please consider attending both events. Located near the heart of Tellico Village at 200 Toqua Club Way, the restaurant and the Pavilion are easy to find on Google Maps or your favorite navigation aid.

 

We will receive the slate of officers for 2021 from the Nominating Committee and take additional nominations from the floor. The Financial Review Committee will also be appointed. Mark your calendars and plan to attend.

 

Thanks, David Andrews, N1ESK
