Recommend Opt Out

Needham Joe Thompson <w4cth@...>
 

Attention Group this has recently come up, and personally I would
advise all members to follow the link, and opt out as suggested.
Whether you do or not is entirely upto you of course.... I have :-).

As part of our continuing efforts to serve our list-members we will
pass along any general Yahoo Groups-related announcements that are of
relevance to all of you such as the one below:

Yahoo is Tracking Group Members

If you belong to ANY Yahoo Groups - be aware that Yahoo is now using
"Web Beacons" to track every Yahoo Group user. It's similar to
cookies, but allows Yahoo to record every website and every group you
visit, even when you're not connected to Yahoo. Look at their updated
privacy statement at http://info.
<http://info.yahoo.com/privacy/us/yahoo/details.html>
yahoo.com/privacy/us/yahoo/details.html

About half-way down the page, in the section on *cookies*, you will
see
a link that says *WEB BEACONS*.

Click on the phrase "Web Beacons." On the page that opens, on the
left
find a box entitled "Opt-Out."

In that section find "opt-out of interest-matched advertising" link
that
will let you "opt-out" of their snooping. Click it and then click the
opt-out button on the next page.

Note that Yahoo's invasion of your privacy - and your ability to opt-
out
of it - is not user-specific. It is MACHINE specific. That means you
will have to opt-out on every computer (and browser) you use.

Please forward this to your other groups. You might complain, too,
but
I'm not sure if anyone is listening. I remember when they signed all
users up to get spam and we had to opt out of that a few years ago.

OK gang, we have a friend who really needs some help - and soon.



Ted Randall has been doing the radio show promoting Amateur Radio for some
time now and does a good job of it too.

But there's been a mix-up.



Earlier you got a message that he was going to record and air Christmas
greetings from hams on his shortwave station. He even has other stations
now joining in on this activity.... BUT -

The announcement said that people could call in and have their greetings
recorded until D*ec 23.*

T*hat was a mistake. The show airs on several stations THIS WEEKEND!*



So *what he needs is for hams to call in and just say a bit about
themselves and wish people seasons greetings by Friday afternoon.*

615-469-0702



We all make "ooopses" but this is one we can help him with.

Your call now will help him out a lot.

Thanks.

*(860) 594-0328*

*apitts@arrl.org* <apitts@arrl.org>





Here's the info on it....



leave a brief message about what they love about ham radio, how long they
have been in the hobby and where folks may find them on the bands.

They can mention the line of work they are in as folks around the world will
find that interesting.

They may want to give some family background if they are parents and how
many children.



An important thing is have them tell folks why they are a member of the
A.R.R.L. and what is their favorite thing about the League!

They may want to pass along the league activities that they participate in,
field day, A.R.E.S. contests or whatever is their fancy.



They can even get longwinded if they have a lot to say!

Do they have a good Christmas Story to tell? Bring it on!

We will mix a little jingle bells or silent night behind them!



This I very informal and no one needs to try to get it perfect.

If you stumble then just start over and we will edit to perfection so
nothing worry about!

We will make everyone sound great!



What is most important is, any simple goodwill message, that will go out
over the powerful shortwave transmitters, that can be heard around the world
from a individual radio amateur.



I will then be playing these greetings back on QSO on through the season,
mixed with some great Christmas Music.

After the programs air, we will post them on the website for download.



So pass this along to all clubs and individuals that you know and lets tell
the world Merry Christmas from Amateur Radio in the USA!

The phone number is 615-469-0702 feel free to wear it out!

We will be collecting greetings up and including the 23rd.

This will be some real fun!

Re: What is the difference between TNC and Psk31 ?

Lee Besing
 

Best resource site on this topic that I have found has been at
http://www.tapr.org/

The TNC is usually a piece of hardware, or sometimes software, that
serves as a Terminal Node Controller to interface between your
computer and your radio.

I use MIXW software from http://mysite.verizon.net/jaffejim/ with my
sound card interface on my laptop to run PSK31 with my ICOM IC-706MKIIG radio.

I bought my computer / radio interface cables from http://www.saratogaham.com/

Their interface cables are found here ... http://www.saratogaham.com/ezpsk/

Hope this helps....

Re: What is the difference between TNC and Psk31 ?

Needham Joe Thompson <w4cth@...>
 

Simply speaking PSK31 is a digital HF mode that uses specially
written software that utilizes your computer's sound card as a modem
to change digital data from your computer to analog signals that can
be transmitted over ham bands and then in return changes analog
signals received over your radio to digital data that can be
displayed on your computer. It requires a sound card interface
between the computer and the radio. PSK31 uses a phase shifted
signal and is not a packet mode.

A TNC is a hardware device that also functions as a modem but does
many more things. It takes digital data from your computer, creates
packets and then changes these packets into audio signals that can
be transmitted by the radio. In return, it demodulates recieved
audio signals, changes it back to digital data, disassembles the
packets and sends digital data to be displayed on your computer.
Most TNC's are multimode and can be used to send other forms of
digital signals on HF in addition to packet on VHF and pactor on
HF. TNC's are not to my knowledge used for PSK31.

Hope this helps and credits for above to the ARRL HF and VHF Digital
Handbooks.

Pat Knight AD5BR <ad5br@...>
 

The funny thing about these replies, for those of you who don't know, is that Lee & I are husband and wife and were about 20 feet away from each other when we separately replied to Gary's message.

Communication? In our household some days it takes an Extra effort.

Thanks go to Paul Guido for updating the web site this past week. Lee's reply was based on what he had seen about a week ago. I was at the web site this morning checking on the VE testing info. Testing is at 9:30!

V.O.A.D. Meeting - Guadalupe County

Louis <k1stx@...>
 

Anyone in Guadalupe or surrounding counties - Amateur or not, are
invited to attend a meeting of Guadalupe County V.O.A.D. group. The
meeting will be held 17:30 hrs @ the 1st United Methodist Church, 710
N. Austin - Seguin

A presentation will be given by Dan Kinsey - Guadalupe County
Emergency Manager on the preparations of a possible Pandemic Flu
outbreak in our county.

Not sure what else will be presented or discussed, as I just found out
about it last night and this is fairly young group! With good
intentions, if I am not working, my family and I will be there!

Dan Kinsey is promoting the idea that all county volunteer
organizations come under the V.O.A.D. structure, not so much for
control, but organization and training. By Embedding members of the
EmComm organizations (i.e. ARES and REACT) gives a perfect opportunity
for promotion, training and coordination for future events with other
county and area volunteer groups. A couple of our CARC/GCARES members
are planning to attend, and it would be good to see a representatives
from other clubs there also!

My intentions are to be there, but being on call, that could change!

Thank you for your time,

Louis Upton
