Re: Annoying things on PSK
Many years ago I was a QSL Manager for a DX station in South Pacific . This was era of paper logs. Every time he had a problem like that, he would note in margin "NO QSL" ! I honored that request and several worldwide stations were excluded from getting their cards.toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
On the first DXpedition to Ducie Is. a friend of mine from here in 9-land was at the mic and told a certain 7-land station that if he "asks one more time if he is in log, he won't be". That is probably why many stations do not receive QSLs either electronic or paper.
Think I'm going to post a DO-NOT-QSL list next to radio with offending/ill-mannered stations and let them know why. It's one small effort, but it may help prevent the mess that exists on SSB.
BTW, I read an interesting item last night about contests. Seems that a bunch of worldwide stations were operating with SDR receivers in one of contests and logging everything received and storing it . They were able to pull contacts down to date, time and frequency ! So, while it may have been easy to cheat in past, the game has changed. See: http://http://cqww.com/blog/?p=67

Sorry to hear about that, Jerry, and you are correct.
Just last night, I was running a frequency, and work a "KK4" station and he
made the comment that I was about his fourth contact, and then someone else
(domestic) jumps in and makes contact with him. Since it was close enough
to bedtime, I just turned off rig.
I guess what I am going to start doing, is to treat the offending station
as "NIL" when they want an eQSL, LOTW or Card.
A number of us talked about this same subject on the local repeater this
