C4FM/WiRES-X Net Log n’ Blog

     Scroll to the bottom of the page for a complete tally of previous nets.

     Net number thirty is now in the books.  Current average net length is about 55 minutes. Average number of nodes connected during the net: about 14. Average number of stations checking into the net: about 11. Note that these are ‘averages’.

    It is now possible to go an estimated 60 miles from Atlanta, driving in a northeasterly direction, and be within reach of one of the participating nodes or repeaters. Not that there would not be dropouts here and there, but there are more nodes and repeaters linking in all the time. I’m really amazed at how this network has grown! The latest repeater to join in was the KN4OAJ machine in Dacula, Georgia…443.925. Thanks Richy. 

Our goal remains to provide service to C4FM and WiRES-X device owners so that they may learn more about those devices and enjoy them fully. We expect to learn ourselves as there is always something new to pick up on and since System Fusion is developing all the time.

QUESTION: Why is the number of ‘nodes’ different than the number of ‘stations’ in the chart below? The nodes that show up in the Connect ID Window of the WiRES-X software for Room 40383 is the source of the counted nodes. Any node that comes into the room during the net gets counted here. The number of stations that actually answer the call for check-ins is what gets counted for ‘Stations’ listing. A node may come online but the person connecting a node to our net may not wish to check in. That is fine. They are welcome to listen if they so desire. The number of ‘stations’ could be higher, OR lower than the number of ‘nodes’ in the list because stations can also come in via RF as well as WiRES-X. So you see, there are variables that cause the numbers to differ.
