Re: ALERT - 366 Chasers - September

Fr Richard R

Afternoon 070 group,

Yes I will be on the air, most likely 20 and 40 around 0000Z, each evening to make the contacts.

My current antenna is an end fed and am only really able to get on 20 and 40.  I can try other bands, though most likely will not be able to tune to them........

Prayerfully one of these months we will find a permanent home and able to install our dipoles.

Gosh the housing market here has really gone crazy as prices are high and houses go under a contract very quickly... so we are looking.  It's heck to move!!

Hopefully will catch down the log soon.

Fr Richard

HI HI HI I have a pretty full calendar, until Aug - Dec
I try to get on 20 especially, each morning between 0900 and 1100 Oklahoma time.
Many days I see no one on any band.  But I give it a try.
I am on the computer way too much and since it all at the same desk (see my QRZ page) I hope over and try PSK at other times too.
I like all callers, old contacts and new ones.  I hope to fill in many more spaces on my calendar this year.
It does not matter to me whether it is a quick contact to help with endorsements or a long QSO (my longest has been just over 1 1/2 hours).
I have not seen Europe in a few months, I use to see them early daily.
73 to all and hope to work everyone in the club at some point.

Yup, but I’ still working on LONP and the 1000 mark couldn’t be further away.  Kind of like climbing Mt. Everest during a major blizzard … of inactivity … where are all the new members ???  Can’t wait for Winter conditions/increased activity.


Just found out the my 80/40 meter vertical in back yard wasn’t connected after finding end of coax dangling; so have no idea what I was transmitting on !!! Might have been the dual sloper, but thought it was dead and non-resonant. By my calculations I may have been transmitting on the piece of coax that runs out to switch on tower – what ? Bears further investigation.


Spent most of day mowing lawn, doing yard work (Trimming neighbors stupid pine trees which were hitting me in face every time I mowed .  Got new tires on van and had to get tire on lawn tractor repaired because it went flat. Also did a bit of grocery shopping. Was a busy day for me with limited mobility. Radio was at bottom of list today, but managed to squeeze in a couple of contacts.


Am still disappointed I didn’t hear a peep out of pontoon mobile this August. 


Sure hope 20m gets busy soon…

I see several 366 Award chasing folks need some QSOs on SEPTEMBER dates coming up fast.

If you see these folks on the air, be sure to give them a call and make their DAY. Total days needed (#).


KC3FL (2) – 9/19


KC4TIE (5) – 9/12


R6KEE (4) – 9/18, 9/22


K5KHK (8) – 9/4, 9/11, 9/23


WB8YXF (17) –9/6,7,8,9,10,11,12,13,14,15,18,19,20,21,23,24


(I have a feeling we will see Richard on the air a lot in September. Be sure to give him a holler even if you worked him the day before.)


I have listed only the folks who are getting very close (within 20 dates). I am sure there are many more who need September dates, also.


To see what dates you need, upload your log and check the "Online Endorsement Checker". In the "In Progress" section, click on "Target" for the 360 category and a list of needed dates will show. If you have a problem seeing that, please just let me know.


Let’s make 366 happen for as many as you can. Of our 2,703 members, only 41 have achieved 366. Another 6 need only 1 date, usually 2/29.
