Next Meeting

The March 21, 2020 meeting has been postponed.  More info later.

System Status

We are currently aware of these issues:

1. The microwave links to the West continue to plague us with random outages.

2. The server at Jacks Peak randomely goes down which in turn shuts down the NXUs.

3. The Caballo peak back bone radio is a Motorola MSF rather than the standard Kenwood. It developed a Power OUT issue, and went into alarm. Currently, the PA is by-passed, and it is operatiing off the exciter in overide mode. It is kind of serving the purpose at this point and some day will get repaired.

4. The Bensen Ridge - Dark Canyon link isn't always fully quieted on the Dark Canyon end.


All JPARA and Cactus members are invited to check into the Morning net. Our system covers many time zones, so check with your local group to find out what time the net is locally. The net is hosted by Tom, AB7IC, and Jerry N5IMJ. We routinely have check-in's from California, Arizona, New Mexico, and Texas.

This is an informal Roll-call style net. It affords us the opportunity to check our linking status, and confirm all remote base sites are in working order. Plus. we just get to say good morning to the group. Start you day off with a big ol' Cactus Smile.

So, if you are a member and are up early, stop by and say hello
