==> MARYLAND-DC QSO PARTY - HOW DID YOU DO?

Last year's (2014) Maryland-DC QSO Party was very successful
and the 2015 Maryland-DC QSO Party seems so have been just as
successful.  Everyone involved wishes to thank the Anne Arundle
Amateur Radio Club (AARC) for their continued sponsorship of
this annual event.

The contest was conducted in two operating periods over the
second weekend in August.  The first period was Saturday from
12:00 p.m. (noon) EDT until 12:00 a.m. EDT (midnight).  The
second period started on Sunday at 12:00 p.m.(noon) EDT and
lasted until 8:00 p.m. EDT.

There were four station categories for the MD QSO party. They
were "Standard," "Club," "QRP" and "Mobile."  Each catagory had
a different multiplier value.  Only three modes were allowed --
"Phone," "CW," and "Digital."

Here's a message from the sponsor, the Anne Arundel Radio Club,
W3VPR, pertaining to QSO log-sheets and participates:

"The 2015 version of the Maryland-DC QSO has ended! Thanks to
all the stations that participated.  We at W3VPR had a blast
making all the contacts.

All MDC QSO Party entries must be received by September 9th.

Remember, you must complete and submit a Summary Sheet with your
contest log. 

Send your comments, suggestions and/or questions about the MDC
QSO Party to <mdqsop@w3vpr.org>.  The coordinator for the 2015
MDC QSO Party is Mike Watterson, K3MAW."

Website: <https://ares.k3cal.org/>
Listserv: <http://mailman.qth.net/mailman/listinfo/calv-ares>
Meeting: Third Tuesday of each month, location usually at County
Services Building in Prince Frederick
Membership: 15 (no change since last month)
July saw several activities:
First, at the beginning of the month we deployed to support a
RACES exercise at Huntingtown High School during a radiological
sheltering exercise.  Members also deployed to the county health
department and communications were tested between there and the
shelter located at the high school.  We also established
communications with ANAR via the Davidsonville VHF repeater to
test connectivity and a local cross-band repeater was used to
provide a back up to our normal voice repeater.  Seven members
participated for approximately 3.5 hours during the exercise.
An after action report (AAR) was generated and is available at
<https://ares.k3cal.org/2015/07/13/2015-calvert-radiological-sheltering-exercise-after-action-report/>.
Next, four members assisted ANAR, providing nearly thirty hours
of combined field time, with the Rosaryville Trail Run public
service event on one of the hottest days in July.  Operators
provided assistance to runners and management during the 50k
event and utilized VHF simplex to communicate with the
established voice net.  No AAR is available for this event.
Finally, a review of our sheltering exercise was had during our
July meeting.  Our August meeting will likely focus on the
October SET as well as a local September exercise.
======================
de GARR County KB3FMJ:
Last month’s activities included:
•Review of our Field Day results and after actions
•Discussed supporting the 2015 SavageMan Triathlon. All were in
 favor to participate again this year.
•Discussed local problems with the 146.805 repeater link radio
 and access to the Target Link network.

======================
de HARF County WBØEGR
For the last three months, the Harford County Auxiliary
Communications Service (HarCo ACS) group has been moving the
amateur radio equipment provided to the group by the Harford
County Department of Emergency Services (HES) (our primary
client) from the old building that housed HarCo DES into the new
building, and a larger, more modern ACS room for amateur radio
public service communications.
As a result, the analog 146.775 MHz (PL 146.2) and 449.775 MHz
(PL 162.2) are currently offline as they are being moved into an
auxiliary transmitter shelter located at the base of the 300
foot public safety communications tower located adjacent to the
DES building.  Additionally, the KB3TOG D-Star repeater system
(145.1200 MHz/447.9875 MHz/1282.3000 (-12.00 MHz)
DV/1248.100 MHz DD) is also being relocated to the same auxiliary
transmitter hut.  We have been promised by DES management that
Internet access for connection to the D-Star Gateway will also
be also be provided in the relatively near future.

HF CONDITIONS
NTS nationwide nets have experienced difficult Cycle 2
and late afternoon conditions with solar activity induced
absorption and noise in the afternoons plus E layer formation
now that the sun angle is higher. Several days encountered
high D layer absorption and radio blackout conditions due
to solar flares with recovery usually in the same day.
Sunspot activity has diminished, and 3,000 Km MUFs have
been hovering around 16 to 19 MHz. at 2100Z. There were
several openings of the 15 meter band on a few evenings.

The BTN continues to meet on 145.33/R (no tone - our
backup) daily at 6:30PM local time and continues to
welcome new amateurs. The availability of an active
directed traffic net of the NTS on VHF is exactly why
the BTN was established, providing a welcoming place
for newcomers to the Amateur Service.

LOCAL MDC RADIOGRAMS AND OTHER MESSAGING
Outlets in each ARES® jurisdiction are needed for daily
Radiogram and Radio-email traffic, particularly for
messaging welcoming new hams to the Amateur Service.
There is also a "real", but smaller, messaging rate coming
in to addressees all over the Section. The NTS takes this
daily traffic voluntarily as a public service and in order to
provide for practice in sustaining our messaging capability.
Please help us find local operators with interest in
providing this service to act as liaisons to our NTS nets
or accept designation as a local Target Station for the
exchange of Radio-email messaging.

Please note that ICS/NIMS FEMA forms such as the
ICS-213, and other special forms, may be attached to
Radio-email as a binary text file for transmission via
WL2K or peer-to-peer transfers. The NTSD Radiogram
service can also handle such forms when the form text
data, including block titles, etc., is inserted into the Text
part of the message; the Preamble, Address, Signature
and OP NOTES completed as done in the standard
Radiogram.

MANPOWER - TRAINING
All of our operations, voice, CW, and digital, are in need
of additional supporting manpower. If you can operate
any of these modes, please consider joining our MDC
net fleet. Becoming familiar with methods and practices
now will pay big dividends should an emergency
communications situation arise in your local area or
over a wider region. All of our operators and managers
will be glad to help you learn the skills and find out
about various types of equipment and/or software used.

The NTS/NTSD/Radio-email staff above Section level
draws its manpower from those operators who have
become competent in the service at the entry levels. It
is therefore very valuable and necessary to bring new
operators into our nets and help them learn their skills
in order to provide for the future.

The MDC NTS staff continues to offer to conduct
Echolink training conferences to teach Radiogram
handling and directed traffic net operations, and to
familiarize stations with operations on the NTSD and
Radio-email layers.

MEPN representatives check for Echolink check-ins
starting at 6 PM daily via the WB3GXW-L link node
(or *WASH_DC* conference node backup).

Remember that the MSN provides CW training daily
for newcomers to the mode, or those wishing to
refresh their skills, daily at 7:30 PM on 3563 kHz.
---

Thanks to all the NTS net controls, DRS and WL2K
stations, liaisons, and traffic handlers for the continuing
effort to keep the nets running and traffic moving. Well
done!

Thank you for your continued support of MDC integrated
ARES®/NTS/NTSD operations.

==> FINAL COMMENTS FROM MARTY

First, I would like to apologize for my oversight and failure
to announce the Maryland-DC QSO Party in last month's issue
of the MDC Section News.

The MDC QSO Party took place earlier this month and I hope many
of you participated and made lots of contacts.

If you participated, don't forget to submit your log and summary
sheet before September 9th via e-mail to <MDQSOP@w3vpr.org> or
via snail-mail to: MDC QSO Party, P.O. Box 308, Davidsonville,
MD 21035.

Please take a look at the above article, ==> MARYLAND-DC QSO
PARTY - HOW DID YOU DO?

I will continue to attend your Club meetings and please remember
to support your local Clubs by attending their Hamfests and helping
with volunteer opportunities.  Always remember to pass along
newsworthy information to your ARC Staff and the MDC Section.

Many school districts will again start classes very soon so
keep your eyes on the road for the safety of our students.


73 and remember that I am always ready to serve you.
