Hello all,

Because so many members flagged our newsletter as spam, in order to continue being able to send out newsletters and announcements to our members requires all members to resubscribe to our list. The former list will go away after this email. So if you want to get our newsletter and announcements you will need to visit this website and sign up for the list again:

https://k4nab.org/documents/newsletter-archive/newsletter-signup/

It really does the club a great disservice for our members to be reporting our emails and announcements as spam. Please consider this before pressing the spam button.

Discussions will be moved to Groups.io and the lists at members@... and meetings@... will be ending June 1.

To subscribe to Groups.io, please visit:

https://groups.io/g/nabrc

All of this is being done to better consolidate the streams of communication and to eliminate unnecessary duplication of information.

Thank you for your understanding in this matter.

Field Day Operations Announcement

North Augusta Belvedere Radio Club
 

K4NAB FB Group Header

Hello all,

As you know the annual ARRL Field Day is right around the corner. Given the continued issues with COVID-19 and the fact that so many of our dedicated members have risk factors that make this disease deadly, the executive committee of the club has decided to cancel our normal Field Day operations this year. We are encouraging all member to participate in Field Day from your homes using whatever emergency setups you have access to even if it is for a short time on Saturday or Sunday. This will be a great opportunity to test how well you can operate from your home QTH in the case of a widespread emergency or pandemic!

From the ARRL concerning modifying our Field Day operations:

Social distancing and state and local requirements very likely will impact just how — and even whether — you are able to participate in Field Day this year. ARRL continues monitoring the coronavirus situation, paying close attention to information and guidance offered by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). If social distancing means that Class A with a 30-member team set up in a city park won’t work this year, then it’s time for a Plan B. Part of the Field Day concept has always been adapting your operation to the situation at hand. At its heart, Field Day is an emergency communication demonstration. Field Day rules are flexible enough to allow individuals and groups to adjust their participation and strategies in a way that still addresses their needs while being fun. Some possibilities:
  • Encourage club members to operate from their home stations on emergency power (Class E).
  • Use the club’s repeater as a means for individual participants to keep in touch during the event.
  • Family members interested in operating Field Day and unable to participate as part of a larger group may want to consider setting up a portable station in the backyard with a temporary antenna.
We encourage everyone to operate from your own home on emergency power using your call sign even if it is only for a little while on Saturday or Sunday. We can discuss further the use of the club call before Field Day. However, when you submit your logs, do not forget to put that you are a member of the North Augusta Belvedere Radio Club in the log submission.

We will send more information on how to participate in this modified version of Field Day as the date gets closer.

In the next few months, we will also discuss the possibility of holding a Winter Field Day operation since we are not holding one during the summer.

Thank you all for your understanding and support during this difficult time.

Re: map program link from last night's meeting

Rodney Tanner
 

Sorry about leaving the meeting. I found out my microphone on the webcam was not working.  It is new webcam I got for my desktop computer.  It as working with Zoom when I tested it.  Found out when I plug it into the USB port the computer made it my default microphone.  So when I started using FT8 it would not work. I had to go into Sound Playback and change the settings which disable the camera microphone. That was the problem I could not respond back to David.  I got the computer configured so both microphones will work now.  I will check it before the next meeting starts.

Thanks, Carl. I may be having multiple problems. I tried the zoom test mtg and know my spkrs and mic are working, but zoom does not continue to the next step after the mic test. I needed a Zoom update and have that now. I will work on this more before next mtg.

Since you did not say what error you were getting,  I suggest you try a zoom "test" meeting at the link below. 
 

There is also a Zoom help center here:

It would have been helpful if a zoom-knowledgeable member had been available via phone yesterday. Or perhaps step-by-step "can't fail" instructions in the invite email. Alternatively, a public simulcast via FaceBook like the ARCCC club did.

Emergency Ventilator Designed and Constructed by Hams Going to FDA

Emergency Ventilator Designed and Constructed by Hams Going to FDA
Radio amateurs have succeeded in providing a complete, working ventilator system to University of Florida researchers who are in the process of applying to the Food and Drug Administration for an Emergency Use Authorization (EUA). A successful submission would blaze the way for volunteers and manufacturers around the world to create low-cost, highly functional Intensive Care Unit (ICU) or anesthesia-care ventilators that offer many of the features of modern ventilators at a fraction of the typical cost. Dr. Gordon Gibby, KX4Z, who is associated with the project, said efforts to further improve the device are ongoing.

"We made a stunning improvement in accuracy of the system and measuring volumes last night at about 1 AM," he told ARRL. "Accuracy of that particular alarm measurement went from about 300%, down to about 10%. The FDA submission is being readied, but we keep making engineering improvements."

Gibby credited some of the primary volunteers. "Bob Benedict, KD8CGH, has provided incredible volunteer testing, now exceeding 1.6 million cycles on one crucial valve and 300,000 on another. Jack Purdum, W8TEE, is the main 'code-cleaner' for one of multiple teams building software, following the initial lead of Marcelo Varanda, VA3MVV. Ashhar Farhan, VU2ESE, not only created the ventilator controller schematic but the printed circuit board layout that will be part of an expected University of Florida submission." Farhan was among the founding code writers of what we now know as Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP).

Other hams worked on mechanical designs for flow measurements and retooled potential manufacturing capabilities otherwise used to produce transceivers. In another example of ham radio ingenuity, Marc Winzenried, WA9ZCO, modified a readily available lawn sprinkler to serve as a durable expiratory valve. This development enabled the ventilator to go more than 1 million breaths before significant valve issues developed, and the part can be replaced for less than $15.

The completed prototype in Florida was built using typical tools by a radio amateur, and assembled boards provided by LifeMech, a manufacturer working with the project. Farhan crafted an extendable menu structure for the Arduino Nano-based controller, and gas-flow measurements are made every few milliseconds by an I2C-based differential pressure transducer that can measure down to tiny PSI fractions, allowing the design to accurately track patient-induced variations in the volume of delivered gasses.

"Using Wenzenried's expiratory valve, electronic on-off control at the rate of 30 Hz allows modulation of the valve to set the continuous airway pressure used to keep the patient's lung alveoli open against virus-induced water-logging of the connective tissue," Gibby explained.

"Perhaps the most surprising development was the addition of the ability to sense patient effort to take a breath and immediately switch to assisting the patient with that breath, known as 'assist-control' ventilation," Gibby said. "This is expected to allow far lighter sedation of patients -- potentially even no sedation." Read more.
