Re: [WestMichiganHams] Packet net answer
The Muskegon Area Amateur Radio Council is encouraging area amateurs to drop by and see our club in action. You are invited! We have a special program on tap for our June 1 meeting that you will just love. Jim Weaver, K8JE and our Great Lakes Division director for our ARRL will be the featured speaker.
For this event we are encouraging all our members to attend and visit with Jim. And our members are encouraged to bring along another ham. We are looking forward to having the clubhouse filled to the brim with hams. Won’t that be a sight!
If you are struggling with the choice of who to invite then drop me or Bob, KC8VTX a quick phone call or e-mail. He is found at jmdupie@... He has an extensive list of folks who have been members of the club and are not now active. You can surely find a ham contact on the list to invite for this opportunity. Or go on the internet and search for a local ham in the call book. We have a wonderful association and our friends in the amateur radio community will love hearing about our fun loving group.
Maybe you just want to drop by, unaccompanied, to our meeting? That is encouraged, also. And this meeting will be the one to make. I'm hoping that the weather is cooperating because we just might have to hold the meeting outside and give our sound system a real work out! Now that will be a sight!
If you don't know what a call book is or if you need a little nudge then drop me a note. Hams helping hams is the name of the game. And being a good ham you really should not claim a case of mic fright. Let us gather our old friends, our new friends, other ham's friends, and we'll make some new friends. Radio is fun. Let's encourage radio around here in Western Michigan.
See you and your friends there!
President of the MAARC

- Paul,Transmitting legally on Amateur frequencies requires a licensed Control Operator. A Control Operator can operate more than one radio at a time. If you are in control of both pieces of equipment the tests you describe would be legal. The trick is being able to control both rigs from one place. If you can figure out how to do that, you're OK. Remember that you can't transmit control commands on 2 meters. It is OK on 440 and via TX. If the rig that the non-licensee is sitting at was a Kenwood TM-V7A for instance and you had an HT that had DTCS (Digital Tone Coded Squelch) you could control the Kenwood from as far away as you could work 440 simplex. If you don't have the bux for such a set up, a homebrew project may be in order.Or you could get the XYL licensed or have one or two of us come help.Good Luck!Mark K8MHZ----- Original Message -----From: KD8CBJ@...Sent: Thursday, May 04, 2006 11:19 PMSubject: Re: [WestMichiganHams] Packet net answerMy question was,can a nonham(xyl)assist in an equipment test?Example,packet test,me being mobile,xyl in the lab at my rig/computer.Can she hit the enter key sending mobile me somthing?And/or do I have to be in "physical control"of my equipment? Answers I got.Yes to being there in person(exceptions -remote control application)No to her pushing enter key.Be it smoke signals,or typing in RUN,transmitting is transmitting
