First Video Stream of a MARCO Net Held on Feb. 20, 2021

On Feb. 20th 2021 we had our first live video stream of a MARCO net, the MARCO digital voice net. Thank you to Hilton PY2BBQ who did the live Youtube session simulcast while Jay AA4FL ran the net on the quadnet array.  The net was recorded and available for viewing here on this page.  In addition a still image from Jay’s computer accompanies the video. We had 16 check-ins on the net and 32 views of the video stream during the 75 minute net.  Why is this important?  First, it allows MARCO members who are not DV enabled to view the net, and…participate.  How?  Viewers of the video stream (MARCO members, other hams, general public)  can use the live chat feature and submit questions to be answered by the net participants.  Please view the video and observe the nature of a DV net that is enhanced by online check-in tools and video streams.

Earthquake surprise on MARCO Zoom session

Our thoughts go out to member Etsu JA0BXP and his countrymen in Japan. An earthquake occurred as the session started and Etsu checked in 25 minutes into the following video to report on the earthquake. As you watch the video, the discussion thread before Etsu contains discussion about Warren and the Grand Round net, and his request to find others to help on some Sundays with running the net. Potential of W4DFU at the University of Florida to offer a signal similar or better than Warrens from a nearby location (120 miles NE) exists. The station has a Flex-6600 so the net could be run remotely by those who want to participate as net control.. Enjoy the video 73, Jay AA4FL...
