Only worked 3 of the 13

John van Eijndt KC0DEB

I only worked 3 stations on PSK31:

K2H - MA
K2L - SC
K2K - NH

Where there more? I sure did not see them here in Kansas. Conditions were horrible on my end, until monday afternoon.
Made up the rest in Phone for the Clean Sweep. K2L - NC was the hardest one..who would have thought North Carolina would be that though....
Still looking for the WP station to make it really complete..

During the firecracker, was the band condition very spotty, or was it just me? I had signals 100% readable, and suddenly they would be gone...just to appear a few minutes later again. Vy frustrating at times. Don't get me started on what I checked on my end, even replaced a "bad" plug on the antenna coax with a nice shiny gold looking plug...looks good - no difference in RX ;)
Besides that little inconvenience, I had a lot of fun. Kinda had to juggle the test and the grill, but both turned out OK I think.
Thanks for the contact, Tom .

Subject: Re: [070] Milestones accomplished this weekend during the sprint

How many (or which) of the 13 Colonies SE stations were available in PSK
mode? In other words what was the PSK possible count?

Just curious..

Good morning everyone,

As I am sure that everyone else did, I had a lot of fun with the
Firecracker Sprint this weekend.

* Increased my LONP count from 197 to 211.
* Completed the Special Event Station endoresement.
* Word of the Month and Bingo for July both completed.

Also just received my 5,000the QSL from Logbook of the world, putting my
response rate at about 47%.

The only fly in the ointment, was working only 12 of 13 Colonies Special
Event stations. Just could not bust through the pile-ups for North Carolina.

Hope everyone enjoyed their holiday.
