Congratulations to Dieter, DL2RR for successfully gaining the PODXS Digital Prefix Award in both the MIXED and RTTY categories. Shh! A little bird tells me that Dieter might soon be claiming the PSK certificate as well. That would be certificate number # 0001  :)  Very well done.

Re: arrl is accepting eqsls for dxcc credit

Dick Thompson <wb0dul@...>
 

Ernest, I dropped an e-mail to Bill Moore to ask for a carification on the DXCC acceptance of eQSL cards. 
 
Here is his response to me.  I wish it was more positive.  
 
Response from Bill Moore at ARRL: 
 
Hi Dick:
 
I was quoted out of context. If you read my message closely you'll see.
 
However, DXCC has not changed its position with regards to e-QSLs.

Hi Bill,
 
I received the following e-mail from the 070 site on Yahoo Groups.  Is there any truth to it?  I haven't seen anything on http://www.arrl.org/
Until I do, I'm not buying the announcement.  Many are waiting for word that it is true.  It would make sense if it was.  If it is, then an announcement would be nice.  The alleged e-mail from you is posted on the eQSL site (see link in message below). 
 
Hope to hear back from you. 
 
73,
 
Dick

Hello all.  ARRL is accepting eQSLs that are printed and mailed via
the eQSL mailing service for DXCC credit...this is big news.  The eQSL
cost is still a buck a card--less than direct DX postage in most cases
(I think) & a lot faster.  Currently eQSL can only mail out to US
addresses, but I expect that we might(???) see eQSL mailing points
cropping up in DX locations to provide the same service there w/o DX
postage costs.  That would be pretty cool...

News at:
http://www.eqsl.cc  (login and read the news...February 8, 2002 email
from Bill Moore, NC1L, is there in its entirety)

Thanks to Bob, VX4XA (VE4XA) for letting me know!

When do you think Bill Moore is going to make an official announcement, Ernest?  I haven't seen anything from the League as yet.  Until I do, I'm not going to buy into the program.  I hope they do accept printed eQSL cards.  it would make sense.  But I guess we'll just have to wait and see.

BeaconSee - Great propagation tool

Dave Kjellquist, WB5NHL
 

If you haven't visited the IARU HF beacon web site
lately. Or, don't know what BeaconSee is. Or, better
yet have no idea what I'm talking about you're missing
one of the best ways of finding out what is really
happening on the HF bands.

Yesterday, I installed BeaconSee on my WinDoze
computer. It is a little like watching grass grow but
,Wow I can see via a waterfall diplay, propagation to
beacons world wide automatically. The program
automatically tunes my TS-570 receiver (and many other
rigs). In 20 minutes of monitoring last night I
realized that there should be more evening activity on
15 meters.

If all this sounds interesting checkout the NCDXF/IARU
beacon site at http://www.ncdxf.org/beacon.htm

The software BeaconSee is available at
http://sapp.telepac.pt/coaa/

Note your computer needs to be accurately time
synchronized via an attached GPS rcvr or I use web
based time servers on my DSL line with the program
AboutTime available at http://www.arachnoid.com/abouttime/

Sorry for such a long posting but this program to
monitor HF beacons is really neat.

Yes, South Padre belongs to the West Texas Group, according to the IOTA

Hey Steve,

I just worked Fred / AA4ME on 20 meters, and he wasn't familiar with
IOTA's and didn't know the reference
number, and I also can't find South Padre Island on my IOTA list. But from
the looks of the map,
I would guess that it would be West Texas, NA-092, but then again, that's
just a guess.

Re: arrl is accepting eqsls for dxcc credit

Steve W3HF
 

Steve and others,
Is anyone even SURE Bill sent this email? Or could it be another
Internet hoax? Think I'll wait for Big Brother (ARRL) to announce it.
73, Jay - AA8QQ
Jay -

That's one reason I used the wording "Although it appears to be true
that Bill Moore has sent that email .." in my message. I haven't seen
the actual email headers, and I know even email headers can be
faked.

But I do know Rich W3ZJ, at least by email. And I also know that the
eQSL organization would have to be incredibly stupid to publicize
something like this if it were fraudulent. They would lose all
credibility, and I believe (and would hope) the amateur community
would dissociate itself from them, if they faked it.

So the case that I suggest is that, although Bill Moore has stated his
position, he might still be overruled by the DXAC. That is what I was
trying to imply in my message. I hope not, but I am cautious.

Steve


Re: arrl is accepting eqsls for dxcc credit

Steve W3HF
 

Currently eQSL can only mail out to US
addresses, but I expect that we might(???) see eQSL mailing points
cropping up in DX locations to provide the same service there w/o DX
postage costs. That would be pretty cool...
I've been thinking about this since last evening, when I first saw this
announcement. If any overseas 070 member is interested, I would
be happy to be a "mailing point" for you, and forward to you cards
"in bulk." US mailing rates are US$0.80 per ounce, and one ounce
should be able to mail multiple cards. (I do not know how many
since I only ordered my first mailed eQSL last night.)

One other note, though. Although it appears to be true that Bill
Moore has sent that email that "authorizes" mailed eQSLs, we still
have not heard a formal announcement from the ARRL or the
"higher-ups" in the DXCC heierarchy. I believe that the positions
stated by Bill in his email are exactly correct, and by any reasonable
interpretation of the DXCC rules this is okay. Bill's email has stated
his position, but he is "only" the DXCC Supervisor. (I just checked
on the ARRL web site.) He must administer rules as developed and
interpreted by the DX Advisory Committee. Until we see a formal
statement from them, this interpretation could be at risk.

And I hate to be a cynic here, as it is not my general nature. But we
are talking about business here, and if ARRL starts accepting
eQSLs, it will be a viable competitor to their own Logbook of the
World program.

I hope my fears are unwarranted, as I would like this to work. And
as I've said, I have already started ordering some paper eQSLs for
countries that I have not QSLed yet on paper. But I believe there is
plenty of room for skepticism, and I look forward to a formal
announcement from the ARRL, one way or another, early next week.

Steve
W3HF

P.S. Does the term "paper eQSL" strike anyone else as an
oxymoron?

Diese Zahl wird bekanntgegeben werden etwa 3 Tage vor dem Beginn dieses
Ereignisses. Wenn das Multiplikator Maximum bekanntgegeben ist, werden neue
Mitgliederbewerbungen, die bei KA3X eingehen, nicht bearbeitet werden bis zum
Abschluß des 070 Club Drei Tage Wochenendes, um den Multiplikator konstant zu
halten).
Bonus - Jeder Kontakt mit den folgenden Stationen zählt als einhundert (100)
Bonus Punkte: OK1VSL, AA8QQ, KF4FHS. Bonus Stationen werden in einer
separaten Kategorie abgerechnet.

Power - Bitte haltet Euren Output auf einem vernünftigen Niveau um QRM für
die anderen Stationen zu vermeiden.
Bonus Stationen - Du kannst jede Bonus Station einmal per Band arbeiten,aber
bitte sie nicht um QSY auf ein anderes Band für Dich. Bonus Stationen werden
versuchen, so viele Stationen wie möglich auf so vielen Bändern wie es ihre
Ausrüstung und die Ausbreitung erlaubt um jedem die Chance für Extra-Punkte
zu geben, aber denke daran, daß sie auch im Contest sind. Es ist nicht
garantiert, daß alle Bonus Stationen auf allen Bändern aktiv sein werden.
Brag files - Wenn Du rufts "CQ 070" heißt das, Du bist in Contest Mode, es
ist nicht notwendig diese "brag files" zu senden. Wenn Du in "ragchew
mode"arbeiten willst, dann sende einen gewöhnlichen CQ-Ruf.
Macros - Nutze den Vorteil Deiner Macro - Tasten. Formuliere ein Macro mit
dem Ziffernaustausch.
Alpha Liste - Ein gute Möglichkeit um nachzukommen, wen Du gearbeitet hast.
Ein Kontrollblatt wird auf der Webseite zur Verfügung stehen. Für Computer

http://www.qsl.net/w3km/gen_log.htm>.
Spaß - Das ist die ganze Absicht!

arrl is accepting eqsls for dxcc credit

kg9ni <kg9ni@...>
 

Hello all. ARRL is accepting eQSLs that are printed and mailed via
the eQSL mailing service for DXCC credit...this is big news. The eQSL
cost is still a buck a card--less than direct DX postage in most cases
(I think) & a lot faster. Currently eQSL can only mail out to US
addresses, but I expect that we might(???) see eQSL mailing points
cropping up in DX locations to provide the same service there w/o DX
postage costs. That would be pretty cool...

News at:
http://www.eqsl.cc (login and read the news...February 8, 2002 email
from Bill Moore, NC1L, is there in its entirety)

Thanks to Bob, VX4XA (VE4XA) for letting me know!

not ask them to QSY to another band for you. Bonus stations will try to work
as many bands as their equipment and propagation allows to give everyone a
chance for extra points but remember that they are in the contest too. No
guarantee that all Bonus Stations will be active on all bands.

Brag files - Calling "CQ 070" means you are in a contest mode, so no need to
send those brag files. If you want to operate in ragchew mode, send out a
general CQ instead.

Macros - Take advantage of your macro keys. Set up one with your exchange.

Alpha List - A good way to keep track of who you’ve worked. A dupe sheet will
be available from the website. For computer logging check out W3KM's Gen Log
program.

Fun - That’s the whole idea!

Any questions send an e-mail to n3dqu@aol.com.

Jim's GAZETTE
Newsletter #115
5 February 2002

Please feel free to forward this newsletter to any and all interested
parties, or to reproduce it in
any other publication. All we ask is that you give credit where it is due.

SHORT NOTES: Among the boatloads of trivia on the DX and RTTY reflectors,
there is an occasional gem worth repeating and repeating. Here is a good
example.
Bob W2KKZ has a blind friend who can use a computer. But he needs software
that, once a prefix is typed in, gives him the country, beam heading and
distance.
Now that's a tough order and I wouldn't have had any idea where to begin.
Dave AA6YQ, however, responded 13 minutes later; "DXView does that. See
www.qsl.net/dxview. It's free.' What wonderful help the message portends! And
talk about response time! That's the kind of help that makes you feel good
about
people in general and about this hobby.

On the other side of the coin, a not so welcome Email from a Pactor II (and
soon Pactor III) fan suggested that PSK31 was a 'kindergarten' mode. Hmmm! I
didn't
respond but I did search my memory (a hazardous undertaking at my age Hi!) to
see if I could conjure up a time and place when I last saw or even heard of a
Pactor
II QSO. Mailbox contacts don't count! I soon gave up. They are even more rare
than a RTTY ragchew these days!

Then I scanned Dima's UT5RP PSK31 DX notes. This kindergarten mode seems to
be pretty well represented. In fact, if you worked all the stations on the
week's
list I estimate you would have racked up somewhere between 90 and 100
countries from all parts of the world. Not bad for a mere beginner.

Dima also mentions some future and some rare DX opportunities for fellow
kindergarteners: J73CCM Dominica on 16-18 February; A big DXpedition to
Trindade
PW0T 18 February to 2 March, 24 hours a day, all bands
(www.Trindade2002.com); T88XF on 9-12 February. And reminds all of us to mark
our calendars for
the Tara Rumble on 24 April.

As always, send your DX notes to ut5rp@radio.tenet.odessa.ua.

Oh, by the way, Doug N6TQS will be the RTTY and the PSK operator on the KH1
Baker and Howland invasion 30 April-5 May. Maybe we will hear from him on
how he hopes to carve up his operating time between the two modes.


I spent some time playing around and learning at a propagation website
deluxe. You'll enjoy it as well, so take a look at www.qsl.net/dxlab. It's a
fascinating facility.

Finally, Steve KF2TI mentioned an interesting piece of software in a recent
note. The address is www.joshmadison.com/software. What you'll find is not
exactly earth
shaking, but it is a tiny utility that converts anything to anything
else-miles to kilometers, temperatures from F to C and reverse and so on.
While I couldn't find a
dollars-to-doughnuts ratio, the table has a great variety of other elements.
It's small and worth having on your desktop.

Mentioned before, but look again department. The NASA photo of Mother Earth
at night is absolutely awe-inspiring. The entire globe can be visited and,
unless you
are from a very small town in the western USA or central Australia, you can
probably locate your own QTH. Truly remarkable! Go to
http://antwrp.gsfc.nasa.gov/apod/image/0011/earthlights_dmsp_big.jpg --and
stay awhile!

Finally, Dick K8WT raises one of the more interesting questions of the day.
What, says he, can we as amateurs do to help out in a meaningful way in this
strange and
unsafe world in which we live? It's a good question without easy answers. I
noticed the article yesterday where President Bush got on the Florida
emergency net to
say hello. That will make good press for the ARRL, but it hardly defines the
need nor does it reflect great leadership on their part.

It brought to mind the situation in Desert Storm. At the time, my dear
departed friend TG9VT was handling thousands of messages from the naval
forces in the Gulf.
He and the other Aplink stations around the globe found themselves buried
with traffic. They handled it all because of their complete dedication and
round-the-clock
operation. Yet, oddly enough, their service was somewhat limited because
there were no stations on the ground anywhere near the troops.

Their success led me to write to the head of ARRL suggesting that there was
much more to be accomplished with this technology and its existing network.
Why,
asked I, can't we get volunteers to put stations on land, not too far from
the troops, where with a packet network we could gather up a huge volume of
homebound
messages? Simple, I thought, and a mission to attract many volunteers and
offers of free equipment from willing manufacturers. Perhaps that was a far
too ambitious
proposal but it seemed reasonable at the time in light of what I had heard of
the mammoth phone-patch effort during the Vietnam era. I had a friend, now a
silent key,
who with his engineering students worked his station virtually 24/7 handling
phone patch traffic.

Too simple or too ambitious, apparently, because their answer followed the
usual bureaucratic path to a negative response. 'We are not empowered to do
such a
thing,' or words to that effect, repeated several times, convinced me they
would do anything to avoid the task of taking the initiative. Too bad,
really, because the need
was so obvious (at least based on the volume of Aplink traffic which could
not adequately serve the ground-based troops) that it could have been a
success. A great
and positive aura might have been built around amateur radio's service to the
public.

As it turned out, only the telephone companies reaped much goodwill from that
action. According to my nephew, a doctor in a hospital way out in the desert
near the
front, ATT would occasionally drop a few phone booths near the troops and
give them free access to their family. Wonderful!

Now, the geography involved in today's multi-national action boggles the
mind. Yet we assume that the need for personal traffic is no less than
before, perhaps more
considering the isolation in which most of the forces operate. I surely can't
pretend to know what the answer is. But I don't think we have our hands
around an
up-to-date, viable volunteer service plan. I think the radio operators are
willing and able, I think the technology is in hand, but not much will happen
in a vacuum.

I said several times, 'I doubt I'll watch the SuperBowl.' Gen snorted and
said, 'Yeah!' She, as usual, was right. Having made the mistake of watching
the first few
minutes, I couldn't leave until it was over. What a finish! I surely won't
watch next year because there can't ever be another game like this one.
'Yeah,' I hear from
afar!
