Many thanks to those who checked in during last month's Automatic Packet Reporting System net. Check ins were received on APRS, DMR statewide OK group, and the TARC UHF linked system. The list included:
W5LHG, KC5FM, KD5NJR, WA5RDG, WX5ASA, AF5LW, KC5RBH-9, KA5WRG, KK4WZQ-10, KF5ZTX-5, KG5EWK, K5SJW, KF5YIW, KE5URG, KG5CQJ, KE5HPV, KC5WQX, KD5ISA-7, and AJ5W.
The next statewide APRS net will be on Saturday, June 13th at 1 PM. Net control will be KC5SHE-2, Scott Mayes, located near Claremore, OK. In addition to standard messages and bulletins, Scott will be using the ANSRVR to send out requests for check ins and receive check ins. If you don't know how to use ANSRVR, check out the training materials at https://www.dropbox.com/s/rgvw6bokclb4ttj/APRS%20Messaging%20TDRC%20Training.pdf?dl=0. Scott will also be monitoring the DMR statewide OK group and the TARC UHF linked system for those stations that may not have APRS capability, but still want to participate.
We continue to operate HF APRS using the instructions located at http://tulsadigitalradioclub.blogspot.com/2015/03/hf-aprs-fldigi-style-using-pskmfsketc.html . As an additional incentive for this upcoming net, a certicate of appreciation from the Tulsa Digital Radio Club (TRDC) will be sent to those stations that try this new high-tech wrinkle on the two decades old HF APRS mode. The HF APRS net will be running on 7036 kHz at a center frequency of 1000 Hz using MFSK-16 for highest robustness during the net.
If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact Jeff Scoville, AE5ME
