per band.
Valid bands are 6m-160m. (Not including WARC)

Good luck to all and I hope to see you there.

intensive and may not copy so well.......

Welcome Adam!
Thanks! Glad to be here. It was the contest the other day that
pushed me into finally submitting my log...

I'm a new ham this year, although it's been a 30 year road to finally
getting the license. With a max of 100W out from a TS-520S hybrid
rig and a still not-quite-tuned Hustler 5BTV in the back yard, I have
been getting a lot of mileage out of digital modes in this time of
few sunspots!

Day before yesterday I worked EA8BMG on 20m, giving me a PSK31 WAC,
and I've submitted for that endorsement. Not bad for a guy who has
all of maybe 200 days of operating time on HF! :D I'm also
something like 12 holes into completing the golf course, and am
mighty close to getting the China Clipper. :) I've got England and
Belgium, so I'm working toward some European endorsements, even
though I live in the Pacific coast near the Oregon border. Once we
have some decent sunspots, look out! ;)

from my location (FM19ga), at this time of year and sunspots, 30m is
open to Europe for some time between 12:00UMT-18:00UMT, and then kind
of on/of into US. I can get great drey line on 20m, but so-so wague on
30m. a few months ago 3m was singing - and then about a month ago it
closed. Oh well, will wait till next year or more sunspots.

Scotty, it was funny - I was copying you quite well _except_ your call
sign.. every time you transmitted it, it would fade rapidly. Like
daemon sitting between and chomping on selective bits. Thanks for yoru
patience and persistence..


Thread stealing:


Anyone is/was using a portable 30m antenna ? I have a delta loop I can
take down and up in few minutes, and a military mast I can use to hois
it up; now I am lookign at somethign along the lines of a dipole or
yagi... I know, portable, yagi, 30m.. head check :-). Anyone tried

Probably just a poor day.

Here in Pennsylvania, 30 seems to open up late afternoon (3-4 pm local) and runs until
about 3-4 (8-9 pm local) hours after local sunset. Maybe a bit less.

30 also seems to be GREAT for Grey-Line propagation from my location.

I KNOW I'm goofy, but I'm reading the scoring rules....

Add up the sum of the unique Ø7Ø Club membership numbers worked
(an Ø7Ø number counts only once per band)
Add 1 point for each non-member QSO
Multiply the total by 800 (so Harvey can once again get more than 1,000,000
points)

I add up the membership numbers..... Plus 1 for each non-member Q's

That adds up to 14,384 TIMES 800 ????

Thats 11,507,200 points ??????

That cannot be right....

What am I missing ?????

As I said, I'm GOOFY, so set me straight...
