STL or midwest comm

Post by hank_612 » Sat Apr 27, 2013 12:22 pm

Would any of you guys in stl or somewhere near like to get some practice setting up a simple comm link and maybe passing a encrypted message or something like that.

I can send out a key and freq and when can set up a time. All I need to know is what band (cb 10 20 2 ect) and what time date works for you. If I have to build a dipole or something it may take a week.

Encrypted comms are a no-go on the amateur and citizens bands, just as an FYI.

In the Saint Louis crew, Jamoni, Kyle, and O are the big ham guys. We usually use the clayton repeater thats on 146.940 for metro-area comms, and the south grand repeater on 145.something for when we're all in the city.

Hmmmmmmmm

Q codes and ten codes and Morse code are encryption right? No they are ways of encoding. I have read and asked others for their interpretation of part 97 in regards to this. A code that is public knowledge though useless is kosher. It seems a ZS code format ie. a is O z is 25 would be good practice but if you guys think better of it I will stfu.I was just trying to get myself and someone else some practice at mission specific comms. Setting up gear for a purpose is much different than banging the same repeater regularly. Ymmv

Yeah, I'm tracking. A few people around here have a general ticket but most of us are just techs, so HF is off limits and we're stuck using repeaters. STL is too big for simplex 2m.

Techs have 28.3 to 28.5 10 meter voice I thought. 6 meter might also be viable simplex.

Thats true, but its such a narrow hunk of phone frequency that techs arent going to drop $500+ on a HF radio to talk on it :D

One of these days I'm going to get my general and set up a metro-wide NVIS net.

You bring the gear, I'll bring the ticket. :P
Got a couple books on NVIS prop if you want them, BTW.

I'd be game for a metro nvis. Of course I'd have to get my hf set working better first. And General isn't all that hard to cram for. You can probably do it in a long weekend if you're relatively disciplined and motivated.

I would even be up for a weekly or monthly zs cb network but 10 meter would be my preference. I am just trying to get some locals thinking about emergency comm. We rely to much on the government and media to tell us what is going on. If cells phones internet and TV go out I would like to see a predetermined pretested network for zs members. Oh and I don't trust me repeaters as much as I trust HF.

how about a code that is published on-line to get used to the format (and mechanics of working in code), and only change the key to a privet one during an emergency.
