GOOGLE ASSISTANT, NOW AVAILABLE ON HAM RADIO

Depending on who you talk to, Google Assistant is either a tool capable of quickly and clearly answering audio queries in natural langauge, or a noisier and less useful version of Wolfram Alpha. [William Franzin] decided it would be particularly cool to make the service available over ham radio – and that’s exactly what he did.

JANUARY VHF 19th-21st

To work as many amateur stations in as many different 2 degrees x 1 degree grid squares as possible using authorized frequencies above 50 MHz. Foreign stations work W/VE amateurs only.

I just wanted to quickly say thank
you to you all! My youngest son Avery
has recently taken an interest in Ham
radio, and after we found your club's
links page together over the weekend
we actually started looking into licensing
options as a family. My husband thought
it would be fun to do together, so a big
thank you for sparking this idea for us! I
also wanted to make sure I took
the time to say that I think you've done
a really great job here.
~~ Barbara and son, Avery
With the final EOC-to-EOC '5th Saturday' COMMEX of 2018 coming up two
days from now it pleases us to advise you of a new 6m repeater that
provides some VHF east-west coverage over the Cascade mountain range. 
The repeater is the result of a multi-year effort by Stan Nelson, K7DKK.
It is located on a 6180' hilltop in the north western corner of Yakima
County. 

The repeater's output is on 53.670 MHz, with its input a minus shift of
1.7 MHz and a CTCSS of 100.0 Hz. I have attached a estimated coverage
plot. 

The repeater is currently in a test status. Stan informs me that the RF
exciter output is presently 15 watts and the antenna is lower that its
final intended height. The RF output should increase to 100 watts
mid-summer of 2019. 

In a brief trial earlier this week the RACES station at Camp Murray hit
the repeater with a clean signal from two of the three 6m antennas tried.
Let's give it a trial workout this Saturday!
