In that years I was a young guy with big ambitions and we using very

My ex- call was UA6JAD and brother's call was UA6JWW and our radio

Never back that nice days!

Endorsement archives are at <http://mysite.verizon.net/jbudzowski/070_end_arc1.htm> . Guess I could put out an OHIO DX Special endorsement for the leftcoasters, but what's the challenge in that?? Jay N3DQU

The past DX awards aren't on there anymore ..

For 2010, both HA & HB have been earned by only EB3JT, OH2-612, NO8R, which
is 1 east-coast (if you count western Michigan), and 0 west-coast, which
means there's not info info/sample-size to create a ratio to apply the
comparison to he E-W membership ratio .... Which is why they were left off.

One could argue (see caveat #2) that the DX awards are 2 per year, so that
is (for any specific year) still a score of 12-10 for West.
(also note I'm on the east coast)

ok, i'll bite (numbers are fun!) ... w/two caveats:
1) More the
better!
2) "Statistics can be used to prove anything .... and 40% of
people know
that" (Homer Simpson)

short answer: West coast
has the "advantage" by a score of 12-8.
Long answer ...

First I
looked at the callsigns, and assumed (no, it's not perfect, but
should be
good enough):
those starting with a A,K,N,W were US
stations
the call area is the physical call area
Taking the LONP
list from 5/23 (right before TDW), with that logic I get:
151 (19%)
West Coast (Areas 6,7)
493 (62%) East Coast (Areas
1,2,3,4,8,9)
That's a East-to-West ratio of 3.3:1 ... therefore if all
things are even,
we'd expect, for any given award, the ratio of East-to-West
to be the same.
If it's less, then West is "favored". If it's more,
then East is
"favored".

==> I found that (as of 6/21), West has the
advantage in 12 awards, while
East only 8.

Here are the E:W ratios per
Endorsement:
EAST-Friendly:
9.5 Benelux
7.8 UK
6.0
Central-America
5.0 TRI-WARC
4.8 QCWA
4.2 88 Tri-Band

The DX awards for the last 3

Well being a right coaster I would have to say
I disagree. We have WALC
but
I do not see WARC. You have
Alaska, no counterpart on the right
side. Left
siders have
VK, WAOZ, Hawaii and China Clipper, us righties
have benelux,

Hungary, Switzerland, UK and now Baltic. Most of the

David -

Nice analysis. But I'll "confess" that the numbers are a little more skewed
than this shows, at least for this one station.

My call shows up under all of the endorsements you list. But not all of them
were earned from 3-land. 070 "old-timers" may remember that I spent a
considerable amount of time operating from California as W3HF/6 while on
business trips. For GOLF, I'm listed separately as both W3HF (from PA) and
W3HF/6 (from CA); hopefully you treated those separately and appropriately.
But for all of the other endorsements (including LONP), I'm just W3HF
regardless of where it was earned.

So here's my version:

All of the endorsements you list as "East-friendly" were earned completely
(or predominantly) from the East coast.

China Clipper and WOZ were predominantly West coast. (I've never heard, let
alone worked, either Taiwan or Philippines from PA.) I think I may qualify
for VK based on East coast contacts, but I know it was initially earned from
the West coast. The rest of the "West-friendly" were earned from the East
coast.

I agree with Bob ......   the China  Clipper  and others are  impossible for me here in Fla......I have Estonia in my Log over the last few years  but nada on the other 2......but this will give our European members a shot at the endorsment........My next move will be out by Harvey and get the best of both worlds........
 
good luck on FD all........  both left and right coast.........

Well being a right coaster I would have to say I disagree. We have WALC
but I do not see WARC. You have Alaska, no counterpart on the right
side. Left siders have VK, WAOZ, Hawaii and China Clipper, us righties
have benelux, Hungary, Switzerland, UK and now Baltic. Most of the
others we seem to be equally accessible. The way I see it the lefties
have 1 over us righties.

Nice analysis. But I'll "confess" that the numbers are a little more skewed
than this shows, at least for this one station.

My call shows up under all of the endorsements you list. But not all of them
were earned from 3-land. 070 "old-timers" may remember that I spent a
considerable amount of time operating from California as W3HF/6 while on
business trips. For GOLF, I'm listed separately as both W3HF (from PA) and
W3HF/6 (from CA); hopefully you treated those separately and appropriately.
But for all of the other endorsements (including LONP), I'm just W3HF
regardless of where it was earned.

So here's my version:

All of the endorsements you list as "East-friendly" were earned completely
(or predominantly) from the East coast.

China Clipper and WOZ were predominantly West coast. (I've never heard, let
alone worked, either Taiwan or Philippines from PA.) I think I may qualify
for VK based on East coast contacts, but I know it was initially earned from
the West coast. The rest of the "West-friendly" were earned from the East
coast.

W3HF

ok, i'll bite (numbers are fun!) ... w/two caveats:

1) More the better!

2) "Statistics can be used to prove anything .... and 40% of people know
that" (Homer Simpson)

short answer: West coast has the "advantage" by a score of 12-8.

Long answer ...

First I looked at the callsigns, and assumed (no, it's not perfect, but
should be good enough):
those starting with a A,K,N,W were US stations
the call area is the physical call area
Taking the LONP list from 5/23 (right before TDW), with that logic I get:
151 (19%) West Coast (Areas 6,7)
493 (62%) East Coast (Areas 1,2,3,4,8,9)

That's a East-to-West ratio of 3.3:1 ... therefore if all things are even,
we'd expect, for any given award, the ratio of East-to-West to be the
same.
If it's less, then West is "favored". If it's more, then East is

Absence of sunspots make scientists wonder if they're seeing a calm before a storm of energy

By Stuart Clark
New Scientist
Tuesday, June 22, 2010; HE01

Sunspots come and go, but recently they have mostly gone. For centuries, astronomers have recorded when these dark blemishes on the solar surface emerge, only to fade away after a few days, weeks or months. Thanks to their efforts, we know that sunspot numbers ebb and flow in cycles lasting about 11 years.

But for the past two years, the sunspots have mostly been missing. Their absence, the most prolonged in nearly 100 years, has taken even seasoned sun watchers by surprise. "This is solar behavior we haven't seen in living memory," says David Hathaway, a physicist at NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Ala.

The sun is under scrutiny as never before, thanks to an armada of space telescopes. The results they beam back are portraying our nearest star, and its influence on Earth, in a new light. Sunspots and other clues indicate that the sun's magnetic activity is diminishing and that the sun may even be shrinking. Together, the results hint that something profound is happening inside the sun. The big question is: What?

(Images of the sunspots from NASA)

Groups of sunspots forewarn of gigantic solar storms that can unleash a billion times more energy than an atomic bomb. Fears that these giant eruptions could create havoc on Earth and disputes over the sun's role in climate change are adding urgency to these studies. When NASA and the European Space Agency launched the Solar and Heliospheric Observatory almost 15 years ago, "understanding the solar cycle was not one of its scientific objectives," says Bernhard Fleck, the mission's project scientist. "Now it is one of the key questions."

(Photos from the recent solar eclipse in Africa)

Sunspots are windows into the sun's magnetic soul. They form where giant loops of magnetism, generated deep inside the sun, well up and burst through the surface, leading to a localized drop in temperature that we see as a dark patch. Any changes in sunspot numbers reflect changes inside the sun. "During this transition, the sun is giving us a real glimpse into its interior," says Hathaway.

When sunspot numbers drop at the end of each 11-year cycle, solar storms die down and all becomes much calmer. This "solar minimum" doesn't last long. Within a year, the spots and storms begin to build toward a new crescendo, the next solar maximum.

What's special about this latest dip is that the sun is having trouble starting the next solar cycle. The sun began to calm down in late 2007, so no one expected many sunspots in 2008. But computer models predicted that when the spots did return, they would do so in force. Hathaway was reported as thinking the next solar cycle would be a doozy: more sunspots, more solar storms and more energy blasted into space. Others predicted that it would be the most active solar cycle on record.

The trouble was, no one told the sun.

The first sign that the prediction was wrong came when 2008 turned out to be even calmer than expected. That year, the sun was spot-free 73 percent of the time, an extreme dip even for a solar minimum. Only the minimum of 1913 was more pronounced, with 85 percent of that year clear.

(Photos from celebrations of the Summer Solstice)

As 2009 arrived, solar physicists looked for some action. They didn't get it. The sun continued to languish until mid-December, when the largest group of sunspots to emerge in several years appeared. Even with the solar cycle finally underway again, the number of sunspots has so far been well below expectations. Something appears to have changed inside the sun, something the models did not predict. But what?

The flood of observations from space- and ground-based telescopes suggests that the answer lies in the behavior of two vast conveyor belts of gas that endlessly cycle material and magnetism through the sun's interior and out across its surface. On average it takes 40 years for the conveyor belts to complete a circuit.

When Hathaway's NASA team looked over the observations to find out where their models had gone wrong, they noticed that the conveyor-belt flows of gas across the sun's surface have been speeding up since 2004.

But the circulation deep within the sun tells a different story. Rachel Howe and Frank Hill of the National Solar Observatory in Tucson have used observations of surface disturbances, caused by the solar equivalent of seismic waves, to infer what conditions are like within the sun. Analyzing data from 2009, they found that while the surface flows had sped up, the internal ones had slowed to a crawl. These contradictory findings have thrown the best computer models of the sun into disarray. "It is certainly challenging our theories," says Hathaway.

These changes are raising questions not just about the sun itself but also about the extent to which the sun's activity affects our climate. There are those who believe that the solar variability is the major cause of climate change, an idea that would let humans and their greenhouse gases off the hook. Others are equally convinced that the sun plays only a minuscule role in climate change.

The extended collapse in solar activity these past two years offers the possibility of an experiment to resolve this dispute, allowing scientists to examine what happens when you switch off one potential cause of climate change and leave the other alone. With so few sunspots, the amount of solar radiation bombarding our planet has significantly changed. "As a natural experiment, this is the very best thing to happen," says Joanna Haigh, a climatologist at Imperial College London. "Now we have to see how the Earth responds."
Frigid Europe

Michael Lockwood, a professor of space environment physics at the University of Reading in England, may already have identified one response: the unusually frigid European winter of 2009-10. He has studied records back to 1650 and found that severe European winters are much more likely during periods of low solar activity. This fits an idea of solar activity's giving rise to small changes in the global climate overall but large regional effects.

Another example is the so-called Maunder minimum, the period from 1645 to 1715 during which sunspots virtually disappeared and solar activity plummeted. If a similar spell of solar inactivity were to begin now and continue until 2100, it would mitigate any temperature rise caused by global warming by no more than 0.3 degrees Celsius, according to calculations by Georg Feulner and Stefan Rahmstorf of the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research in Germany.

However, something amplified the impact of the Maunder minimum on northern Europe, ushering in a period known as the Little Ice Age, when colder-than-average winters became more prevalent and the average temperature in Europe appeared to drop by between 1 and 2 degrees Celsius.

A corresponding increase in temperatures on Earth appears to be associated with peaks in solar output. In 2008, Judith Lean of the Naval Research Laboratory's space science division published a study showing that high solar activity has a disproportionate warming influence on northern Europe.

What the sun will do next is beyond our ability to predict. Most astronomers think that the solar cycle will proceed but at significantly depressed levels of activity, similar to those last seen in the 19th century. However, there is also evidence that the sun is inexorably losing its ability to produce sunspots. By 2015, they could be gone altogether, plunging us into a new Maunder minimum -- and perhaps a new Little Ice Age.

Of course, solar activity is just one natural source of climate variability. Another is volcanic eruptions, spewing gas and dust into the atmosphere.

Nevertheless, it remains crucial to understand the precise changeability of the sun and the way it influences the various regional patterns of weather on Earth. Climate scientists will then be able to correct for these effects, not just in interpreting modern measurements but also when attempting to reconstruct the climate stretching back centuries. It is only by doing so that we can reach an unassailable consensus about the sun's true level of influence on the Earth and its climate.

Steve is absolutely correct!
Our observations are based on present as well as recent propagation conditions.
Old Timers, remember the last cycle and the one before that?
Remember 20 meters open world wide 24 hours a day? Not everyday, but often enough.
Remember 15 meters open to EU, AF & JA for at least 12 hours a day?
Remember 10 meters open to EU, AF & JA every afternoon?
Remember the long path openings on 40 meters to AF & Indian Ocean?
Remember listening to JA's ragchew with each other all night on 40 & 80 meters?
Remember the openings to UA?, UN, UR etc. on 20 meters? (I think that's where "horse racing" on CW was invented)
I've got 21 paper log books full of these contacts.

DX lately has been east of the Mississippi for us. With a beam

It's gotta get better soon, right?

Re: New endorsement announcement - Baltic States

David Westbrook
 

I can only go by what's on the standings page:
http://www.podxs070.com/endorsement-standings
The past DX awards aren't on there anymore ..

For 2010, both HA & HB have been earned by only EB3JT, OH2-612, NO8R, which
is 1 east-coast (if you count western Michigan), and 0 west-coast, which
means there's not info info/sample-size to create a ratio to apply the
comparison to he E-W membership ratio .... Which is why they were left off.

One could argue (see caveat #2) that the DX awards are 2 per year, so that
is (for any specific year) still a score of 12-10 for West.
(also note I'm on the east coast)

ok, i'll bite (numbers are fun!) ... w/two caveats:
1) More the
better!
2) "Statistics can be used to prove anything .... and 40% of
people know
that" (Homer Simpson)

short answer: West coast
has the "advantage" by a score of 12-8.
Long answer ...

First I
looked at the callsigns, and assumed (no, it's not perfect, but
should be
good enough):
those starting with a A,K,N,W were US
stations
the call area is the physical call area
Taking the LONP
list from 5/23 (right before TDW), with that logic I get:
151 (19%)
West Coast (Areas 6,7)
493 (62%) East Coast (Areas
1,2,3,4,8,9)
That's a East-to-West ratio of 3.3:1 ... therefore if all
things are even,
we'd expect, for any given award, the ratio of East-to-West
to be the same.
If it's less, then West is "favored". If it's more,
then East is
"favored".

==> I found that (as of 6/21), West has the
advantage in 12 awards, while
East only 8.

Here are the E:W ratios per
Endorsement:
EAST-Friendly:
9.5 Benelux
7.8 UK
6.0
Central-America
5.0 TRI-WARC
4.8 QCWA
4.2 88 Tri-Band
3.8 QRP
3.4
Maple Leaf
WEST-Friendly:
0.3 China Clipper
0.7 Wrk'd All Oz
1.1
VK
1.9 Aloha
1.9 WALC-NA
2.1 Alaska
2.1 Lower 48
2.7 PSK

3.2 PSK31 Achiever

Over the last 4 years

The DX awards for the last 3

EU is darned near
impossible right now.
Hungary (HA) and Switzerland (HB)this year

EA, D, I, G, SV, UA, SP. in previous years.

Only ones I have

ok, i'll bite (numbers are fun!) ... w/two caveats:
1) More the
better!
2) "Statistics can be used to prove anything .... and 40% of
people know
that" (Homer Simpson)

short answer: West coast
has the "advantage" by a score of 12-8.
Long answer ...

First I
looked at the callsigns, and assumed (no, it's not perfect, but
should be
good enough):
those starting with a A,K,N,W were US
stations
the call area is the physical call area
Taking the LONP
list from 5/23 (right before TDW), with that logic I get:
151 (19%)
West Coast (Areas 6,7)
493 (62%) East Coast (Areas
1,2,3,4,8,9)
That's a East-to-West ratio of 3.3:1 ... therefore if all
things are even,
we'd expect, for any given award, the ratio of East-to-West
to be the same.
If it's less, then West is "favored". If it's more,
then East is
"favored".

==> I found that (as of 6/21), West has the
advantage in 12 awards, while
East only 8.

Here are the E:W ratios per
Endorsement:
EAST-Friendly:
9.5 Benelux
7.8 UK
6.0
Central-America
5.0 TRI-WARC
4.8 QCWA
4.2 88 Tri-Band
3.8 QRP
3.4
Maple Leaf
WEST-Friendly:
0.3 China Clipper
0.7 Wrk'd All Oz
1.1
VK
1.9 Aloha
1.9 WALC-NA
2.1 Alaska
2.1 Lower 48
2.7 PSK

2.8 QRP Tri-Band
2.9 K3VOA
3.0 WAC
3.2 PSK31 Achiever

Over the last 4 years
in these horrid band
condx Ive worked maybe 10-12 VK/ZL.

The DX awards for the last 3
-4 years have been pretty much EU centric. And
EU is darned near
impossible right now.
Hungary (HA) and Switzerland (HB)this year

EA, D, I, G, SV, UA, SP. in previous years.

Only ones I have
even seen close was JA and PY. but have never seen 20

Well being a right coaster I would have to say
I disagree. We have WALC
but
I do not see WARC. You have
Alaska, no counterpart on the right
side. Left
siders have
VK, WAOZ, Hawaii and China Clipper, us righties
have benelux,

Hungary, Switzerland, UK and now Baltic. Most of the
others we seem
to be
equally accessible. The way I see it the lefties
have
1 over us
righties.

Re: New endorsement announcement - Baltic States

Ill give you AK, HI and China.

But VK and WAOZ is not that easy from up here in the Pacific Northwest. Over the last 4 years
in these horrid band condx Ive worked maybe 10-12 VK/ZL.

The DX awards for the last 3 -4 years have been pretty much EU centric. And EU is darned near impossible right now.
Hungary (HA) and Switzerland (HB)this year
EA, D, I, G, SV, UA, SP. in previous years.

Only ones I have even seen close was JA and PY. but have never seen 20 stations from those two.

Well being a right coaster I would have to say I disagree. We have WALC
but
I do not see WARC. You have Alaska, no counterpart on the right
side. Left
siders have VK, WAOZ, Hawaii and China Clipper, us righties
have benelux,
Hungary, Switzerland, UK and now Baltic. Most of the
others we seem to be
equally accessible. The way I see it the lefties
have 1 over us
righties.

As a left-coaster in these band conditions, all
I could do when I
read this was
smile. :-)

DX lately has been east of the Mississippi for us. With a beam
at
50ft.

It's gotta get better soon, right?
Right?.....
