Hi Ivor,

Make sure the icons.cfg file replaced the one in C:/Program Files/MixW and the icons were placed in the ICONS subfolder (look in the ICONS folder for any of our callsigns).

That is really all there is to it, perhaps it extracted into a subfolder instead of into the MixW folder directly.

Cheers,
Dan

Not to confuse or to take away from Steve's eloquence, But MixW user's can email me for a copy of the icons.cfg file and the actual 070 member icons.

For those that aren't familiar with this, when an 070 member's call is printed on your receive screen, it places a nice 14 X 84 icon after the call. The colors are the choice that I use; Yellow background and blue font.
FAQ's:
1) Does it work with programs other than MixW?
No
2) Does it work with other modes within MixW?
Yes
3) How will Old Milt send me the file?
Zipped, via email, or if you're that technically challenged, I'll mail you a CD.
4) Is this the same sort of thing that Laurie, VK3AMA was doing?
Yes, but he doesn't support it any longer. I've discussed it with him and is aware that I'm doing it and has no problems with it.
5) How much does Old Penitentiary Slim charge for this?

6) How often do I need to update the icons.cfg file and the member icons?
That's up to you. If you pick a number and keep it small, it's easier to do.

Just a reminder to all members...

The 070 club does not require a formal "exchange" of membership (or LONP) numbers during a QSO for the QSO to count towards LONP (or WABOL). That process is admittedly a requirement for a 10-10 contact, but 070 does not have the same rules. (I don't know about EPC.) The only requirement is that the contact be made using PSK31, on one of the HF bands (160 through 6), using a callsign consistent with the club's callsign policy. (See the web site for that.) No specific exchange of information is required, though it is expected that the contact be considered a valid QSO.

Some 070 contests require the exchange of 070 numbers, but that's a contest rule, and only applies to whether the QSO can count for the contest.

So you are free to use the 070 web site (or other resources) to look up 070 or LONP numbers if you need to.

Well done. There's nothing like a challenge to get the gears turning!
I have an Icom IC-7000 + an Icom AH-4 tuner in my car that feeds a 102" stainless steel whip. The basics are there. All I would need is a sound card interface. I have several laptops and a few power inverters. This could happen!

Re: K3VOA event this Saturday

Hi Tom and group,
 
From my location in Michigan, I could see stations working K3VOA, but not their direct print.
I looked for them on 40 meters as well, but no joy.
Hoping they activate this station again sometime soon.
 
My thanks to the PODXS070 members who did give me PSK31 contacts in the MDC QSO Party.

I have been interested in getting the K3VOA endorsement, and inquired earlier of John, K3NJ. I received the following info from him:

"Hello Tom-

We promised to let you know and to pass along to the 070 group about the VOA-ARC plans to operate K3VOA in the upcoming MD-DC QSO Party.

At this time it looks like two ops here . . . myself and a new VOA member Carl Swanson K6CRS (an import from the left coast). Mr. Vodenik had considered joining us (WB9AUJ) . . . but due to a change in his duty shift he won't be able to join us.

We plan to operate just Sunday, August 14 from early afternoon until the QSO Party's end: http://mdcqsoparty.w3vpr.org/

Please note this is a NEW club sponsoring the event (Anne Arundel).

...,

Cheers and Regards to the gang!

John, K3NJ"

My understanding is that they plan to be on the air from about 1400 on Sunday August 14th. John says that they have all HF bands available to operate as well as 2M, 6M, and 440. I advised him that 20m is most likely to provide him with a steady run of PSK contacts and got his permission to post the notice here.

Hopefully a few of us will be able to find them and make contact for the K3VOA endorsement. If you are one of the lucky ones to see them on the air, you could spot them on the reflector.

CHIMP??

David Westbrook
 

So, since the APE was a great motivation for me to give portable operation a
(successful!) try, and an upcoming goal is to try mobile ... I was thinking
what if there was a similar mobile event?!?
It could be to "Celebrate the Holidays In Mobile PSK31" ......... CHIMP!!!!
Working mobile anytime from weekend before Thanksgiving to 12/31 (or
weekend after christmas or new years), to cover driving to/from holidays, as
opposed to a specific month; and decently spaced away from APE's. (I was
also trying to fit the "chimp" acronym, which clearly is important!!) The
20-miles requirement isn't as applicable -- maybe a few different locations
or something instead? Probably lots of possibilities ...

any thoughts/comments?

KJ4IZW/4 APE writeup

David Westbrook
 

I worked as KJ4IZW/4 this weekend (thursday evening -> sunday morning ET)
from Charleston, SC (EM92xu) -- Just over 2 hour drive (120 miles) from home
QTH (west side of state in Aiken, SC; EM93dm). Site was a townhouse -- I
doubled this up with a little weekend mini-vacation. Brought the following
equipment with me, and ran coax out the back door to the car.
* IC706MKII
* laptop
* edgeport 4-port serial-to-usb convert (for FSK/PTT line and CIV line)
* ISOkit soundcard interface
* Astron power supply
* Sierra Slim 20M mobile antenna
http://www.hamcq.com/hf-antennas/sierra-slim-20-meters/prod_133.html

The antenna was mounted to the hitch of the car (1999 subaru outback legacy)
-- I just got this antenna from High Sierra to try out portable/mobile
possibilities, and it's worked great so far. Was easy to adjust (whip slips
up & down) for a great SWR (using MFJ-259B) -- had pretty close to 1:1 at
14.070, and it's under 2:1 all the way through 14.300 for SSB. Length is
about 7.5 ft. On initial test of it on SSB, I had a clear conversation with
a Louisiana lighthouse, heard a DL, and broke a minor pile-up to W1AW/5 in
NM! The last one did take ~20 tries, but I was impressed the little antenna
and 100W got through!
And seemed to work just fine on PSK this weekend as well ...

So thursday I packed everything up in a newly purchased SPUD7-35 dry box.
I found this great walkthrough:
http://www.kr7rk.com/gobox.htm
where he has the exact same goals I do .. Basically want to be able to pick
up the station as a whole, drop in a box, and walk off. I'm not quite there
yet -- for now just used it as a container. But next project is to built the
shelf and mount everything (radio, tuner, rigrunner, ISOkit, edgeport) to
it, so it can be dropped in the box, taken out, and just add power & coax.

I had tested everything out thursday afternoon, plugging into laptop
(normally have a ham desktop) and using home antennas, and made a psk
contact. However, when trying it out thursday night portable, I was getting
traces in the waterfall but almost no decodes (using DXLab suite/Winwarbler)
... only the very strongest sigs would decode, and then usually only briefly
(like 1 word). And had this problem friday night, too, so combined
thurs/friday Q-count: 5
Thanks to replies on dxlab & 070 listservs, on saturday morning I
re-triple-checked my laptop sound settings, and found a "voice recording"
filter on the microphone that was on -- was hiding in a non-standard control
panel location. Turned that off and instant decodes!!! So now in business!

Was able to put in a few small chunks of time, and ended up with 38 PSK
QSO's (and 1 RTTY). Highlights/stats:
* 38 QSOs (all 20M)
* Countries: K, VE, CO, EA, OZ ==> Was excited to get the two EU
contacts on the mobile antenna!
* 10 fellow 070 members, including KD8JSP/P working APE, N3PPH working
K3CAL for MD-QSP, KF3AA & KC2WTG for new LONP contacts, and KA2HHB & KC2QFR
for my 14th & 15th WABOL contacts.

So I definitely accomplished my goals of being able to work portable, and
passing the 20-QSO mark. Next major goal is to try mobile -- need to build
the go-box, and also work out a power source in the subaru (how to route
power, or just get a dedicated battery)... Since the APE was a great
motivation to go portable, I had a idea for a similar mobile event .. Will
post in a separate email.

I know I was on sporadically, so special thanks to the 070 members that
tried (successful or not) to search me out and give me a call. And thanks
to Karen for processing the APE submissions, and the 6 months of BINGO/WOTMC
I just dumped her way, too!!

Not to confuse or to take away from Steve's eloquence, But MixW user's can email me for a copy of the icons.cfg file and the actual 070 member icons.

For those that aren't familiar with this, when an 070 member's call is printed on your receive screen, it places a nice 14 X 84 icon after the call. The colors are the choice that I use; Yellow background and blue font.
FAQ's:
1) Does it work with programs other than MixW?
No
2) Does it work with other modes within MixW?
Yes
3) How will Old Milt send me the file?
Zipped, via email, or if you're that technically challenged, I'll mail you a CD.
4) Is this the same sort of thing that Laurie, VK3AMA was doing?
Yes, but he doesn't support it any longer. I've discussed it with him and is aware that I'm doing it and has no problems with it.
5) How much does Old Penitentiary Slim charge for this?
Nada ($0)
6) How often do I need to update the icons.cfg file and the member icons?
That's up to you. If you pick a number and keep it small, it's easier to do.
7) May I see a sample of the icon?
Yes
If anyone wants to see a sample of the icon, email me.
That's all the bandwidth I need.

Just a reminder to all members...

The 070 club does not require a formal "exchange" of membership (or LONP) numbers during a QSO for the QSO to count towards LONP (or WABOL). That process is admittedly a requirement for a 10-10 contact, but 070 does not have the same rules. (I don't know about EPC.) The only requirement is that the contact be made using PSK31, on one of the HF bands (160 through 6), using a callsign consistent with the club's callsign policy. (See the web site for that.) No specific exchange of information is required, though it is expected that the contact be considered a valid QSO.

Some 070 contests require the exchange of 070 numbers, but that's a contest rule, and only applies to whether the QSO can count for the contest.

So you are free to use the 070 web site (or other resources) to look up 070 or LONP numbers if you need to.
