Tonight's District nets at 1930 hours are using the 2-meter W6TRW repeater cross-linked with the 440 K6RH Rolling Hills repeater, our 2-meter TAC-3 simplex frequency, 220 simplex frequency (voice followed by an NBEMS message from Lomita Station), the 440 PV-West repeater, and concluding with another NBEMS message on 2-meter TAC-3 simplex. Please give an audio-quality and signal report on how well you hear the 440 PV-West repeater. All DCS members and members of the South Bay's city-affiliated disaster amateur radio groups are encouraged to check in and relay for other stations on simplex.

We operate parts of our weekly District nets from the Lomita Sheriff Station on most Monday nights but still need volunteers to handle other portions from home stations. We have scripts that make net operation easier and the combined coverage from W6TRW 2m and K6RH 440 repeaters will enable many without good simplex coverage to handle our main net. Contact me at [email protected] with any Monday when you can help either from your home or from the Lomita Sheriff Station (at the latter working alongside S-60 or myself.)

ARRL Field Day is this Saturday from 1100 hours to 1100 hours Sunday. Although not a DCS event nor eligible for DCS hours Field Day is a worthwhile event for organizing, operating, and demonstrating emergency communication. We hope you can participate with your radio club or as an individual from your home.

Scheduled to operate there are T-222, T-223, T-234, and S-60 which should be sufficient for the number of boxes now coming through Torrance.

Last Tuesday a pre-amplifier was installed in the new 440 PV-West repeater's receiver section and appears to greatly improve reception from stations using handheld radios or located along the Palos Verdes Peninsula's lower levels. Your signal reports continue to be very helpful as we gauge the new repeater's coverage. Further improvement is planned by replacing PV-West's antenna with a brand new high-gain one provided from the estate of T-95, Bob N6GBX (SK).

On April 26 we installed our donated Motorola XPR8300 UHF repeater at the PV-West repeater site only to discover the 24-year old coax hardline to the roof-mounted antenna had accumulated water inside. The school district's communication technician graciously provided new LMR-400 UF coax and installed it. The new setup has a near-perfect SWR of about 1.1. Further signal improvement is planned by replacing the current antenna with one having higher gain and adding a pre-amp on the repeater's receiver.

Parts of our weekly District nets are being operated from the Lomita Sheriff Station on most Monday nights but we still need volunteers to handle the other portions from home stations. We have scripts that make net operation easier and combined coverage from W6TRW 2m and/or K6RH 440 repeaters will enable many without good simplex coverage to handle our main net. Contact me at [email protected] with any Monday when you can help.

Tonight's District nets at 1930 hours are using the 2-meter W6TRW repeater cross-linked with the 440 K6RH Rolling Hills repeater, our 2-meter TAC-1 simplex frequency from South LA Station, 220 simplex frequency (voice portion operated from South LA and NBEMS message from Lomita), the 440 K6CPT-4a repeater, and concluding with another NBEMS message on 2-meter TAC-1 simplex from Lomita.

We were saddened to learn our fellow member Rod Jensen, T-224, passed away on February 8 after battling cancer for nearly three years. In pre-pandemic times Rod was always a larger than life presence in our carpools from the Lomita Sheriff Station to the EOB for DCS quarterly training. He was also a member of the Rancho Palos Verdes PVAN disaster amateur radio group and will be missed.

If you were set up for Winlink at that training and haven't used it since please utilize Winlink's Telnet mode this week to send or receive a message and keep your account active.

Thank you to our 12 District members who attended Saturday's DCS quarterly training. Please let us know if you have any follow-up questions about determining or implementing the RF exposure calculations for your particular situation...we're glad to assist. As mentioned at the training, handheld amateur radios (i.e., 5 watts or less) for now can be assumed to be compliant because of extensive testing on commercial HT radios operating in adjacent frequency ranges with similar low power levels.

We really need two additional operators. This event qualifies for DCS hours and requires only a 2m/440 handheld radio. The Super Bowl Sunday 10K/5K usually attracts 7,000-8,000 participants and is noteworthy for runners wearing creative costumes plus hundreds of Dads in the baby stroller run with their little ones aboard. All operator positions are outdoors along the course from King Harbor to South Redondo's Riviera Village, then back to King Harbor via the Esplanade and Harbor Drive.

Lomita DCS will be net control on our 220 simplex frequency for the Palos Verdes Peninsula Unified School District's disaster amateur radio drill this Tuesday morning. As is customary, we operate from the Lomita Sheriff Station DCS room while licensed hams employed at PVPUSD's maintenance complex in Rolling Hills operate the drill's 220 repeater portion. Last October and early in November we inspected all 1.25-meter disaster ham radio equipment and antennas at 23 school sites across the Palos Verdes Peninsula.
