Antenna test

If we have anyone from Ohio just laying around, I would like to see if they
can here me on 15 meters. I have set up my Buddipole and would like to see
if it works better than the multiband vertical.

RTTY Contesters are a strange breed ....   last night I found a bunch operating at 3602 which puts them out of band, I believe.  Wonder where the OO's were ?

When they come down as far as 7069.0, I just place AUTOCQ on MixW rigth between the shift lines of their signal and let it go for a minute or two...they move, and I actually worked someone like that last night!
It just happens sometimes and we have to live with it for 6 yours.

I have to agree, as a whole it seems the RTTY people are the most
inconsiderate hams. If you look at their rules it says to try and respect
the band plan, not a chance as many run all over us and use 1500 + watts to
do it.

You can only count the points for contact during your time,

Many stations will be on early to give you points and also late to give you points
However they do not count the points as it is before or after there
Friday, 13 February 2009, 2000 - 0200 (YOUR LOCAL TIME).
IF I contact you before 2000 or after 0200 MY Local time I do not count the points
BUT if it is Between 2000 and 0200 YOUR local time you can count the points.

Re: Valentine Sprint question revisited

Tom <tsingle0@...>
 

Chris,

Thanks..I read the rules at the club website several times--Love the
new web site---but can't see that they address the question directly.

Should I or should I not start making contacts with contest
participants prior to my local start time even though I don't get
contest points for it?

The reason that I would do something like that is (for them) to help
others get points and (for me) to probably make more 070 contacts for
LONP, etc.

Milt's understanding may be correct, but since a call would not appear
more than once in your submitted contest log, how can there be a dupe?
It seems to me that prior contacts should not be discouraged. Why not
help out both parties and encourage more activity? But I'm probably
missing a consideration here..

And Tnx for the compliment, Milt. I saw your QSO with Harry in HI, and
it looks like the reflector mention was indeed keeping him busy.

I'm pretty limited right now on 80M and non-existent on 160M, so won't
be doing much tonight. But I'm working on it...:-)

If someone were to say that **I** was a dupe under those
circumstances, I'd say "but you're not a dupe for me!" right back.
After all, it's not that he **CAN'T** make the QSO, or that you
**CAN'T** work him, it's just that the "second" QSO won't count for
him. Anyone who understood the rules, though, would make a second QSO,
**especially** those on this reflector who are reading this.

Note that because there's no cross-checking of logs, it doesn't matter
which of the contacts with you he submits.

It's a common problem for the "rolling start" type of
sprints--probably one of the few drawbacks--but it's easily addressed.

The only issue is that he won't ever respond to your CQ, because
you're already in his log. You'll have to call him and ask for an
"in-window" QSO.

OK, so that means that I could start making contacts at any time for
the purpose of giving contact points to Sprint participants. For
Conus that would be 8PM EST and 5PM PST.

But the contacts will not count on my totals until it is 8PM my local
