Re: Member Number...



I am going by what was discussed on other PODXS 070 post-contest forums (PCF) on this reflector.

10-10's rules state you must exchange numbers over the air to be legal regardless if its a contest or not. Not so with 070.

However, someone mentioned on one of these PCF, sometime  back, that in a 070 contest, all data must be exchanged over the air or it is not a legal contact.

If you can look an op's info up after the contest, why take the time to exchange info during the contest period, when you could make contact with a station, log him/her and move on to the next station. After the contest is over, look the info of each station up and submit a log. (More contacts at a faster rate ; ) )

I believe you're thinking about 10-10 which is a different animal. 

If everyone gave out their number (070), if it was required, there is no reason why they shouldn't have copied it and if they missed it, I think it would be reasonable to ask for a repeat. There have been times in other contests when I've asked for something repeated. The other station responded with correct data.  If I had submitted a log and any of required info was missing, the other station would have lost the points for the contact.

It's my understanding, and someone can correct me if I am wrong, but if you miss the number, or any other part of the exchange, it is not a valid contact.

However, if I am wrong on this, it may change my future scores. hiohi

yes, that's correct -- east coast is -0400 for this contest ...
I just updated the labels on that timezone dropbox to be clearer (e.g. "East Coast: -0400") ...  I had slowly been updating all the contests like that, because otherwise there's always submissions that are off by an hour, or +0400 instead of -0400! :)

Hi David!  BTW, when I just submitted my log, I first did it as ET -5 and it puked on my 12-1 PM entries...I went back and changed it to a -4 offset, to account for this the proper procedure?

Besides the 070 website, there's also lists for 070 and a bunch of other clubs on
