Hmmm...I listened in for awhile but all I heard was some old guys rag chewing about some electrical equipment on 145. I think I heard Ricardo on .460 calling Nakman early on but that was it...

Yup, the repeater was in use right at 9:00 so I put a call out for Tim on simplex (146.460). After seeing Chris's post I jumped on about 9:38 put out a monitoring call but found no takers.

I heard you call. tried to respond, but realized too late I didn't have my radio set right. By the time I came back you were gone.

So, I'm in Sydney at the moment and am supposed to be on my way to Perth. Upon arrival in Sydney I learned that my bag was still at SFO as was the HT I was planning to use to connect to the Perth IRLP link repeater to join the Monday night ragchew.

Oh well. I missed my Perth connection while I filled out a "delayed baggage" report. Due to my schedule I will be lucky to see my bag when I return to Sydney. I guess I get to go shopping.

After a brief investigation at the Rally, turns out I may have a bad coax. So I'll be on the HT tonight though, barring any unforeseen forgetfulness...

I had to send my FT-857D to Vertex Standard (Amateur Division of Yaesu in Cali) for service. No radio tonight. My HT's batteries are all dead after loaning it out to BajaBen for the GTR, and my FT-2800 is in the garage, no power.

Hope there are a couple peopl on tonight. See you all next week!

Yeah, I'll be there. I've got some new gear to test out, so hope to be clearer tonight than in weeks past..

you sounded really clear. Esp on simplex from up there. There were a few times you were real scratchy.

Now i need to figure out why my tones aren't being set for each frequency. I seem to have a global tone setting right now

That was really cool on simplex tonight. I took Tim and Wes' addresses from the member roster and entered them along with my own in Google Earth. It is about 29 miles from my place to Tim's and we could communicate. I was on my HT at 5 watts with the external antenna on the 40! This was most impressive.

If you want me to post the KML in the Members section I will so you can have a look.
