OFFICIAL TDW STUFF

N3DQU@...
 

Ok guys and gals, it is now official...the maximum multiplier for the
Three-Day Weekend (TDW) is ninety (90). A dupe sheet is now available on the
TDW Rules webpage at < http://hometown.aol.com/n3dqu/070_tdw.htm >, just
click on the link. There were also plans to have a logger program available,
but AA8QQ ran into a few snags and was not able to get the program up and
running in time.

Joe W1SQL sez that there is a possibility that he may work the TDW from
both his home QTH and as maritime mobile and asked if we could accomodate him
in the contest. We sed "Sure, why not?" So for the TDW, on each band you can
work W1SQL twice for QSO points: once at his home QTH and once as /MM, but he
will only be good for one multiplier, ok?

If any newcomers to the club need their 070 member numbers, please send an
email direct to JHudak3rd@aol.com.

Don't forget, NO WARC BANDS.

Finally, just a reminder for the UTC/Zulu-challenged that the TDW starts
June 1, 0000z (that is Thursday nite, 2000z eastern time)....

Looking forward to seeing you all on the air this weekend! 73/55/88 de
Jay, N3DQU.

Steve, too bad they aren't as good as us, hi hi. Good luck and Best 73

KA3X, Jay


ARRL WAS

spdomingue@...
 

I just received this from the ARRL WAS manager:

If you apply now for WAS which you worked on PSK31, you would get the RTTY
WAS award, because right now all digital modes fall under that category.
However, there are plans in the works to include PSK31 as a separate WAS
award, which will be dated, but not numbered. 

Darn, but good as they are going to have the award.

Steve N6YIH/7
See everyone starring tomorrow night!!!

OK I finally received my last card for the WAS and
it goes out overnight to
ARRL.
Congratulations. I still need to work DE, NH, WY, and
HI, and to get a card from either of my two WI
contacts.

I asked for WAS on PSK so we will see if I get it or
what I get.
I will let everyone know what they send back.
Already checked. They consider all digital modes as
RTTY. Doesn't matter if it's PSK31, MFSK16,
Hellschreiber, facsimile, SSTV, or plain old FSK RTTY,
the certificate still says only "RTTY." So my WAC cert
says RTTY, though they did endorse it for QRP.

IMHO, the categories should be CW, Voice (whether AM,
FM, SSB, or whatever), Digital (to include RTTY, PSK,
MFSK, etc), and Image (fax, SSTV, FSTV). But then
again, I would also include ships legally anchored in
a harbor for DXCC, too.

See you all this weekend.
Hope so.

Well it wouldn't count for DXCC, but maybe the 070
guys are a little more generous than the ARRL.

Re: 3 day contest

Joe,

You would have two different calls W1SQL and W1SQL/MM ??
This is a good question?
There is nothing in the rules about changing locations. SO ??
So how will it work? Do you use 2 logs or 1 log?
Do I get to count you once or twice??

Guess we shall hear from the POWER's that BE.

Well, this AM was strange my beam was pointed at Europe and I heard a BV8BC
station talking to the east coast I could not see the east coast the only
signal I could see was the BV8BC.

Well hope this next weekend will be better.

up now and it is pointed right at your location.
Heard you on 20m last night (or was it the night
before?). Signal was very nice for a few minutes, but
faded out before you finished the QSO you were in.

Weird conditions on 20m late last night. Heard two
FKs, two VKs, and a ZL. They were all fading in and
out for a couple of hours. Didn't get any of them,
though. :-( But an N6, QRP at 2 W, did get one of the
FKs, so I think I had a chance. Unfortunately, he
wasted a bunch of time asking questions about France,
and didn't recognize the prefix. Maybe some time ...

Hi All,
Well, I'm afraid I will miss the long awaited
070 Club, Three Day Weekend contest.
After 13 years of faithful service, running
contests flat out for periods of 24 hours, pulling
in enough QSO's to get RTTY, SSB and CW in all of
DXCC, WAC and WAS, the best Rig ever built is SK :(
It has had sickness before and I have always
managed, with a bit of luck, to pull her through
ready fer another sortie on the bands but this time,
after spending Friday evening and most of Saturday
..... yea! the old TS440 has .........
It will be sometime before I rustle up enough
Washingtons to replace her, I do hope to be back in
time fer the October Rumble.

see ya! Ernie WM2U
Ernie -

We'll miss you. Best wishes on getting a new rig soon,
and putting yourself back on the air.

I plan to be on at least for a few hours, but it will
be only on 20m, and only QRP. Still no progress on the
multi-band radio. :-(

BTW, if anyone has my email address in their address
books, please change it to the w3hf@arrl.net address.
My current ISP, Voicenet, is terminating their
relationship with my DSL provider, so it looks like
I'll be switching ISPs.

73,

Ernie,,

I just climbed the tower to point the antenna at your location, sorry to hear
of the passing of your good friend. Hope to see you soon.

Well, Steve, W3HF maybe we can finally make a real QSO as I have a Tri-bander
up now and it is pointed right at your location.

Hope to see everyone next weekend, worked on tuned the system here this
weekend just for the event and maybe I can finish my quest to contact all the
070 members.
