PSK From IOTA NA136

w1sql@...
 

Hello All,
My local club is going to be operating from an island off the coast of Connecticut. (IOTA  NA136, US Islands CT008) This island is, usually, only active with this group and has not been active for a several years. I will be operating PSK and plan to be there as much as possible. I will provide more details as the time nears but the tentative date is the first weekend of October.

TDW and stuff

N3DQU@...
 

Just wanted to let everybody know that all of the TDW certificates are
finally in the mail whew! Thanks to all who waited patiently for their
endorsements and upgrades while we dealt with the extra workload, and thanks
to all the 070 participants who made our very first on-the-air event a great
success. Here's to next year's TDW!

BTW, you should know that we are planning another contest, tentatively
scheduled for this coming January. While the rules are still more or less in
the works, it is pretty much a sure thing that it is going to be your
standard, 24 hour PSK contest with power classes, etc. But unlike the TDW,
the January contest is going to be open to everyone, not just to 070 Club
members. So it will be interesting to see how much activity we can scare up
outside our group. We have also added a little wrinkle for the QRPer's in
this one, with power class entries for QRP single-band and QRP multi-band.
Hopefully this will give the kitbashers out there a better chance to show off
what they can do with their monoband rigs!

If you have an itch for contesting however, you do not have to wait for
January to scratch it! QRP-ARCI is hosting an End of Summer Sprint in
September, the TARA Rumble Fall Classic is scheduled for October, and the
first annual Anatolian AKA PSK contest is up for November (endorsement in the
works). Links for all of these contests can be found on the 070 Club webpage
at < http://hometown.aol.com/n3dqu/podxs070.htm >.

One final reminder that the Latvian Radio Amateur League is celebrating
the 800th anniversary of Riga, the capital city of Latvia by offering a
certificate for working YL800 stations from 01 July 2001 until 30 September
2001. I have also been working with Andris YL2FD to come up with an
endorsement for working YL800 PSK31 stations. Although the endorsement
requirements and graphics are still in the works, my best advice to you is to
work any YL800 stations you hear on PSK, then standby for further info on the
endorsement...73 de Jay N3DQU.

W3HF/6

Steve W3HF
 

I'll be heading back out to California tomorrow, and operating (when
I have time) from the Lockheed Martin club station in Sunnyvale. It
has been reported that they now have a Rigblaster hooked up to a
Yaesu FT-1000D. (Their antennas are pretty nice, too.) Assuming I
can figure out how they're set up, I may be able to get on the
WARC bands. And from my experience there last month, I expect
the signal from the station to do quite well. (My three watt PSK-20
was 599 into VK, FK, JA, and BX.)

I'll be out there until 3 August. So keep your eyes open for
W3HF/6, and maybe I'll even be able to get on the other bands.

73,
Steve
W3HF

P.S. If you want to check out the station, there's a web site at
http://www.qsl.net/lmeraarc

P.P.S. Could someone forward to me the "standard" PSK
frequencies for the other bands? I've never paid much attention
since I am single-band at home. Thanks.


email forwarding services

N3DQU@...
 

Just a reminder that if you have signed up for the 070 reflector using an
email forwarding service like ARRL as your email address (e.g.
n3dqu@...), then you may not be able to post messages to the reflector.
If that is the case, send an email to n3dqu@... with your callsign and
home email address and I'll getcha fixed up! 73 de Jay N3DQU.


Re: ...where a microphone is a great doorstop!

John Penezic <ag4cz@...>
 

Gee y'all gonna embarrass me. Actually glad to see the response to the forms. It is actually kinda fun putting them together. Hope they prove to be helpful for everyone else. I sure enjoy being able to pull them up and see exactly where I stand and what I need, without searching the logbook and sorting stuff out, and comparing to criteria, and ......you get the idea.   
While it is true that you won't find me on any of them fone nets, you may occasionally hear my voice during a contest (after I get all the cobwebs out of the mic). I do sometimes make the PSK nets on 40 though.
Jay, you must have been watching when I got my 300 sticker. It was awful embarrassing when the neighbors came out and saw me chasing the xyl around the backyard. Especially when I tripped up in the radials laid out in the yard. hi hi.
If anyone has an idea for a web form just let me know.
Well have fun with 'em and where is everyone on the WARC bands????
 
73,
John AG4CZ

Well, how did you guys do on 30m Friday nite? I saw a lot of traces out
there, but had pretty rough copy due to strong QRN fm local t-storm
activity.
I did manage to work K6CEG out in southern California, but Charlie's sigs
weren't nearly as good as they were the week before. Props were better
going
the other way towards Europe, where I managed to work CT4MS over in
Portugal.
Leonel had a pretty strong signal into the eastern US and he gave me a 59,
so
either he felt sorry for me or else the band really was open towards
Europe
Friday nite hi! So anybody else making headway on the Tri-WARC? de Jay

Back, sort of

n1zzz@...
 

Hello everyone.  I am back on solid ground, for a week at least.  Thanks to
everyone I worked /MM and from ZD8 land.  I'd like to especially thank Erika
(DL2AYL) and Nando (PU5OPR).  Thanks Nando for the wonderful dinner and tour
in Paranagua, Brazil, and thanks to Erika for keeping tabs on me and relaying
email to Nando that helped make our meeting possible.

I have updated my eQSL.cc accounts for both my /mm activity and my log from
Ascension.  Paper cards will be sent out once I have them printed and return
from my next voyage in mid September.  Sorry for the delay, but work calls.

I will be sailing again Monday 7/30 for Ascension so look for me /mm until
about 8/20 when I will reactivate ZD8JA for a few days and then back to /mm
until mid September.

See you on the Air! 73

...where a microphone is a great doorstop!

N3DQU@...
 

The next time you're out surfin the web, check out AG4CZ's website at <
http://www.qsl.net/ag4cz/ > ...John sez his amateur station is the place
"where a microphone is a great doorstop". ..Hmmm, don't think we'll be
hearing AG4CZ checkin' in on them 20m fone nets anytime soon hi! But he does
do the 070 Club proud when it comes to web forms tho. Click on that "PSK
Clubs and Awards" folder and there you will see "endorsement trackers" for
those little orphans like the Maple Leaf, Wrk'd All Oz and the China Clipper,
all endorsements that have yet to be claimed by anyone. This is a really neat
way to keep track of your progress towards these critters. To use John's
endorsement trackers, you have to have your computer cookie-enabled. Then
when you type in the callsign data, it will be stored as a cookie on your
computer. When you finally have the form filled out, then you're ready to
send that log data in to N3DQU! Then and only then may you commence to
jumping up and down like a crazy person, screaming and yelling, laughing
hysterically and chasing the xyl around the backyard naked yelling "Da man,
I'm da man!". ...Well, one can only imagine! Anyways, I especially like the
way John has the China Clipper endorsement tracker set up...wonder if anybody
can work them in order from California to the Philippines? BTW John is also
the guy responsible for the 070 Club on-line application program, a very nice
job. While you're at John's website, check out some of the other stuff he has
there too, like interface information, a quick and easy vertical with 20
radials (!), just to name a few. Well, in closing I'd just like to say "Hey
John, you da man!" 73 de Jay N3DQU.


Did you work N1ZZZ/MM?

N3DQU@...
 

Because Jeremy N1ZZZ had to ship out and miss the our first annual TDW, we
have been issuing an unannounced endorsement of sorts for working the old boy
as he sails the seas! So if you haven't gotten an "I Worked N1ZZZ/MM in 2001"
endorsement (orange circle) and you have N1ZZZ/MM in the log, send ur log
info to n3dqu@......tnx es 73 de Jay N3DQU.

Hope you guys don't mind, but I agreed to give a little publicity to a
program a friend of mine wrote. If you are offended by the mention
of a commercial product, please forgive me and delete this
message immediately.

The program is called DX Atlas and it's a computerized map for the
DXer. It includes rectangular and azimuthal map projections, can
instantly zoom the map and change its center, plots prefixes on
the maps, shows CQ and ITU zones, calculates antenna bearings
and distances (short and long path), shows the gray line and
sunrise/sunset times, and much more.

You can find out more about it at

http://www.dxatlas.com

It's shareware--US$29.95 to register, but there's an introductory
price of US$23.95 through this weekend.

Thanks for looking.

Formal Disclaimer: Although I do not receive anything from the
sales of the program, I did write the help files, and received a free
copy of the program in return.
