Worcester County Field Day 2020
Great times were had at Field Day 2020 in Worcester County. For all who showed up, it was our very first field day and overall we were successful in setting up our communication operations!
We learned a lot and are looking forward to streamlining our process and making things more enjoyable for all skill levels of operators.
We have posted a gallery of pictures for your enjoyment here: Worcester County Field Day 2020.
K3ORB Repeater News - Ocean City UHF 443.450
The callsign identifiers have finally been updated! It was no easy task learning how to program an S-COM 7330 but now we know how. There were several identifiers that needed updating as well as a macro that was being repeated. Once we learned the trick with character delays over the Ethernet-To-Serial connection we have in place, and learning the format of the commands, we were in good shape. We might be assisting WB3GXW in Silver Spring, MD with assistance as well since they have the same controller over there. More information to come.
We will be filing for our FRN number with the FCC this week and sending in our club application with the ARRL. The last things needed to come to a consensus on is the name of the club and the vanity callsign.
