Just to let you know that tonight’s Round Table experienced some technical difficulties, as in I was unable to link up all the repeaters.
It would have been possible to link BHS, WRC, USR, PKT, Net and CFR or HAR, TRO, SHU, HR, AEH, WN, RTI and GYS. But not all together at the same time.
I did a quick look and the call ins appear about evenly split between the two repeater groups. So when it was finally determined that the problem would not be able to be resolved tonight, approx 2150, I decided to hold off on having the Round Table tonight and continue next Sunday.
Thank you to Brad VE1ZX, Bill VE1MR, Bruce VE1II and Lorne VE1BXK for testing the system and trying to get it going for tonight’s Round Table. Unfortunately a quick fix was not available for tonight but they will do some more testing tomorrow and hopefully get it fixed asap.
The Round Table will be held next Sunday December 10th. The main topic will be antennas and equipment the new ham operator might use and build along with the benefits of one antenna as compared to another.
Some other suggested topics I have received are the use of phonetics, call signs and Q codes.
The round table will not be held over Christmas, December 17th, 24th and 31th it will return on January 7, 2018 same time same place.
Thanks all for understanding. I hope everyone had a good evening and not hearing the Round Table did not upset you too much.
