[W5SFA] Wednesday Night Net Checkins

There seemed to be quite a bit or noise last night during the net on the 2m
Bellville repeater. When no one was transmitting, it looked like there were
signals coming in on my rig's meter. As of right now (9:19am Thursday) it
seems pretty quiet, I just see a little bit of noise - nothing like it was
Maybe we are getting interference from another repeater on the same
frequency? The closest repeater on 145.41 Mhz is League City, about 90
Dan, any insight into this?

What I noticed / have noticed is that on all other repeaters that I listen
to, when there is no one using the repeater the noise level is zero, but if
you listen to the 145.410 it has a constant noise level present at all
times. I don't know what type it is or if its normal but that is the only
one that has that present.

We had six checkins to the net tonight:
K5FRT - Jack
KG5ITZ - Darryl
KC5LSP - Dave (on 70cm)
WB5RFQ - Gil
K1PEC - Ron (on 2m and 70cm)
W5RAC - Ray
Was there anyone else trying to check in that we didn't hear? All in all,
things seemed to work better than last week.
Jack, it seemed like your contact was intermittent, but when I heard you,
you were loud and clear. Ray, I could copy you, just barely - maybe an
antenna issue? Let me know if either of you want to try a contact sometime
and we can do some more testing.
Ron and I did a test after the net, and we didn't have any problem
communicating on VHF. Transmitting on UHF (which I did not use during the
net), my signal was intermittent. Looks like I need to get my antenna a bit
higher for UHF to get into the Bellville repeater (about 20 miles), it is
surrounded by trees.
Thanks to everyone who checked in tonight!
