"Club Repeaters" expanded to seven chapters
Look through the Club Repeaters series of pages for some rewrites and a reorganization of sorts. For one, there was a 2009 photos page that for whatever reason was never filled out with pictures, so it was removed. The tower work done in March of 2012 was included within the 2012 pictures chapter, and additional links to the pictures shot from the tower and a bunch more from the April 12 visit are included by way of a link. The YouTube video of 34 minutes' duration is also on that page showing the lowering and raising of the tower, and in between the lowering and raising there is an excellent demonstration on how to do a hardline N connector.
"A short History" of the repeater system was rewritten and expanded with more information covering the last two decades or so of experiences with the repeater.
DriveTime Net Controls
We may again need a spare net control station to cover an occasional absence of one of the weekly crew, as I update this article in September 2012. Our thanks to Steve, N7CPU for taking up Fridays in August to relieve the double duty since the departure of Jerry, K7AZJ from the weekly schedule.
Our thanks to Jerry for his service, as well as the double duty shared between Dave, K7AV and Phil, KF7IPI, before we recruited Steve for Fridays.
Doing a net is good experience, and you are among friends. You don't need to be perfect.
To get you started, here in PDF is a short preamble to open the net with (One page long in large type): Short DriveTime Net Opening
Here is a slightly more detailed preamble, also in PDF, with the preamble filling two pages: More detailed DriveTime Net preamble
These documents have an extra page in red ink for your own information following the one or two pages of preamble text. The preamble was adapted from the script that Steve, KY7W reads on Tuesdays. Thanks Steve, for the contribution!
Drive Time Net runs from 7 AM until 8 AM on the repeater system Monday through Friday.
Currently, the roster has:
- Monday: Jean, W4CIH
- Tuesday: Steve, KY7W
- Wednesday: Phil, KF7IPI
- Thursday: Dave, K7AV
- Friday: Steve, N7CPU . . . Updated
And we have had Judy, K7JLF and Jerry, K7AZJ on past occasions as a regular.
Our thanks to all these folks for their regular participation!
As for material for trivia questions, I have in the past pulled up weather statistics, the sunrise and sunset schedule, and historical facts pulled from Wikipedia and some of its sources.
The best approach is to Google search a topic, read a paragraph and form a question and answer, as opposed to trying to Google "trivia."
You might ask the net controls for source advice as well.
And thank you for stepping forward!
