Comments

  • I shared the "visual" of the recording so you can see how loud some people's audio is and also what the "kerchunck" sound when the repeater drops out looks like.

  • Thanks for all the write-up and the poll and setting up our record system. Nice work Steve!

  • I agree.. great work.. Steve, there is a signal mixed in there with your transmission. Is your TX possibly affecting it? Or is it possible dirty shack mixing? ;)

  • Its called desense wiseguy. To resolve it would require greater seperation distance between the RX and my TX. I could look to put a narrow notch filter in line with the RX or use a directional antenna.

    Or just not participate on the net from home.
  • Or move the box to a new location..

  • Its as far away as I can put it. The RX is up in the attic and the TX is is 20 below and 20 fert away in opposite direction. Eventually I will sort it out once I move all the TX to the field 150 feet away.
  • Think outside the box.. ;) Maybe at 805 location.. If we had internet there it would be perfect..

  • You just opened a big box of worms. BIG. BOX. :o
  • BIG BOX of worms!

  • This is certainly the right place to talk about worms and especially those in big boxes.

    Worm castings make great soil additives. Wish I knew more about that topic, but they made a raised garden bed I have built on Long Island work fantastic,

  • I could go on all day just on worms.. :)

  • Talking or Eating? ;) I am not sure how to decipher that last comment..

  • So as for the 10 minute clips? WTFRICK!?!?! Why would you even come up with this? Is it because it is a pain to stitch it together? What is the solution for this? I think we all want to hear the whole thing.. We want our cake and east it also!

  • Based on no feedback (Feedback definition being more than 7 people to comment), posting of any further net recordings in whole or in part will be de-prioritized for now.

  • That is a bunch of crap..

  • Show me the votes and lets get it turned back on plus make it better.
  • corporate tease.... :)

  • We need those votes PEOPLE! Looking forward to the net tonight, 6/13......49 days later after this thread got started.
