Remember me

Welcome to the ARRL Oregon Section website
My goal is to make sure this website is always current during my term(s) as section manager. I want to have as many communication methods available as possible to hear what you in the Oregon section have to say. This is one of many ways for me to hear you. I welcome any suggestions for content. With the help of the section leadership, it will be added to continually. I look forward to working with you and am making plans to visit all the affiliated clubs in the state during my first year in office and hope to be able to participate in some of your activities. I have visited some ARES groups as well.

Also please keep in mind that this website is a work in progress and we will do our best to keep it updated with the information provided by our amateur radio community. Currently login access is limited primarily to the Oregon section cabinet. I am beginning to provide access to individuals designated by the DEC's for updating ARES-related information. As we make more features available you will be notified via the arrloregon Yahoo Group. Join the group at http://groups.yahoo.com/group/arrloregon/.

I also send regular informational emails to the yahoo group. Much of what I send will appear in the next SM report, but by being in the yahoo group, you get advance notice of the news. I also forward messages that come from the ARRL to section managers that may be of interest as well.

If you have information that you want posted or updated on this page, please send to me at ab7zq@arrl.net. If you submit news to that link, please notify me that it is there so that I can go look for it. We receive a lot of spam messages at that link.

Malheur County Working with Idaho
Today, October 21, 2010 Robert Batcheller K7RHB and I met with Buddy Jacob K7HBJ at the Ada County Idaho E.O.C. Our purpose is to coordinate ourselves in the event of an emergency that would include our districts. To that end we worked with Buddy to install Airmail and a Winlink 2000 VHF RMS Server at his site. We managed to install the software on his computer and to connect with the K7OJI-7 packet node on the Ontario Butte. We did not complete this work but have made a good start.

We need to follow up on these things:

a. Replace the 30 year old Kenwood transceiver on the Ontario Butte with a 50 watt transmitter such as an Icom IC-2200H
b. Buddy needs to contact Lor Kutchins to be assigned a password and key code for the VHF RMS Gateway software.
c. Complete the install for Ada County ARES/RACES VHF RMS Gateway and get it on the air.
d. NOTE: The line of sight distance from repeater to the Ada County E.O.C. is 49.55 miles. Given the terrain, it is likely that the path will have some signal reflection and Doppler shift from multiple paths. Possibly, a directional antenna will be required at the E.O.C.

I've attached a photo of the three of us taken at the Ada County E.O.C., so you can see how happy we are about this progress! :-)
