Hamfest Results

Many thanks to all who participated and turned out for the 2014 Ozark Mountain Hamfest!  Despite the scare of the weather, we saw lots of familiar faces as well as some we hadn't seen in a while.  While not everyone was able to make the event, we had lots of good feedback on the new location in Brighton and we are already planning for the future.  The OMAR group would once again like to thank the HAM community for your support of the Hamfest and we will look forward to serving you again.

Field Day

Our friends over at the Nixa Amateur Radio Club sent us info on their Field Day activities - great opportunity to go out and experience radio this weekend!  Hope everyone has a great weekend wherever you are for Field Day and lets hope for great band conditions!

From James Adkins, KB0NHX:

Field Day 2013 is almost here! Saturday, June 22 we will begin setup at 7:30 a.m. at 900 N Cheyenne Rd in Nixa at the High Pointe Elementary School. Radio operations begin at 1:00 p.m. local time and continue to 1:00 p.m. Sunday, June 23 when we will begin the tear down process.

This is the 10th anniversary of the Nixa ARC Field Day! The MSHP BAT Van will be on hand for one HF operating station and a 6-meter station, and a large air-conditioned tent for two more stations. We will be utilizing the club's Yaesu FT-950 and a second FT-950 and an FT-920 for the 3 HF stations and setting up Cushcraft A3S and A4S beams along with a SteppIR vertical, a 40m vertical, a 40m and an 80m double bazooka, and a Par omni-angle for 6-meters.

Saturday evening we will be having a nice BBQ for folks operating at the event and for folks that help set-up and tear down.

Restroom facilities will be located on-site since the Field Day location is not in town.  For those of you concerned with the heat, no worries as the operating stations will have AC cooling!

Arlen Evins, N6DDD, is providing a wonderful pendant for raffle to help offset the Field Day expenses. The Pendant is from from a natural Sleeping Beauty Turquoise nugget mounted in Sterling Silver. Suitable for either male or female, it is approximately 1 inch in size. Turquoise this size and quality is becoming very hard to find and has become quite collectible and will only become more valuable in the future. Tickets are $1 each, or 6 tickets for $5. All proceeds will go to the Nixa Amateur Radio Club to help defray the cost of field day, so help support the club and get your tickets at field day. The drawing will be at the close of field day exercises. We expect everyone to make it out to Field Day and to set up, tear down or operate during the event.  Bring a friend, too!  If you're not a club member, but want to check out our group or just Field Day in general, feel free to stop by.

Talk in will be on the SMLRS linked repeater system.  In Springfield, tune to 147.015+ PL 162.2 Hz; Joplin, 145.390- PL 91.5 Hz; Crane, 442.150+, PL 162.2 Hz or Nevada 145.450- PL 91.5 Hz.

Come out and help us celebrate the 10th Nixa ARC Field Day in style!

MS Society Bike Ride

Bike MS is returning to Joplin! 
The Ozarks Chapter BikeMS ride is Sept 8 &9, 2012;  from Clever to Joplin and back.  We have over 600 riders registered so far, with more to come!  We need ham radio volunteers!

For those who have volunteered in the past, we hope you can join us again this year!  For the first-time volunteers, you will get to meet and hang out with a great bunch of people! (and you get to play ham radio as well)

We still need rest stop hams, motorcycle riders, Safety & Hazard, and SAGs. (Or, if you just want to ride a bike in the race, we understand)
If sitting at a rest stop or in a truck all day talking on the radio is not exciting enough; and you'd rather: skip lunch, stand in the rain, chase dogs, track down lost riders, remove debris and prevent cyclists from becoming hood ornaments-- please sign up for Safety & Hazard.

Go to the MS website and register to volunteer today!
Follow this link and remember to hit the SubmitSurvey button at the bottom when you've completed the form:

Repeater Issues - November 2011

The W0OMD repeater has been experiencing some issues lately and after a series of checks on our own equipment, the Wireless Internet Provider was requested to come to the site and examine the Wireless radio system.  After a test with their equipment, the repeater's uplink was only passing around 10% of our uplink packet traffic.  This explains issues with choppy and distorted signal reports from other stations on the reflector.  After a high gain antenna was installed, the signal strength increased approximately by 10dB on transmit and receive and thus increased our link quality.  Other issues may be at hand; for example, other servers involved in the wireless system.
We hope this will bring the system back up to reliable connectivity to the main DSTAR server - as always any and all reports of issues with the system are encouraged!  Email to kc0tqd@w0omd.org.

Thanks and please feel free to use the W0OMD DSTAR system as much as you like!
