Sked for MT NV or WA

John Welsh <jlwelsh26@...>
 

Good Morning,
 
I am 3 states short of my WAS on LoTW, MT NV and WA.  They are my neighbors and just too close for HF propagation.
 
My QTH is Portland, OR and I would like to schedule a QSO with someone from these locations.
 
By the way I have never seen MT on my waterfall.  I see WA from time to time but usually having a QSO with someone else.
 
 
Please send me an email or call 503-663-6987 if you have time to give it a go today.
 
John

Not sure how to deownload the few contacts I made. Use Digipan, HRD or Winlog.

Re: Any 070 members using Club log?

I am a Club Log user... Let's get 070 on there!

I motivated the members of the Kansas City Dx Club to join recently, and it has been very interesting to see where you stack up against other Clubs, and amongst your own members...
As a Club Log moderator for the KCDXC, I recommend to assign 2 or more moderators for approving members, as it speeds up the process of joining.

Subject: [070] Any 070 members using Club log?




























I was digging around trying to figure out why the 070 club was not listed on the Club log webpage and ran across this.



Clubs are what Club Log is all about - the clue is in the name! Club Log was designed to enable, in fact to encourage club activity and friendly competition between club members through its league tables and charts. For this reason, yes, it's very likely your club can be added to Club Log.



However, clubs consume resources and slow down Club Log, so there are two criteria for qualifying clubs. Qualifying clubs have:



At least 10 members already using Club Log;

A nominated contact - someone who is already registered in Club Log and can manage membership requests.

Once you've got these in place, please email Michael and your club will be added.



I was wondering what we could do to make that happen? I notice the the DMG and 30MDG are on there already.



thanks

Thanks. As for Harrod's, I doubt it. I won't be spending much time in London on this trip, just flying in and out. Too much work to do.

Okay, so here's a slightly off-topic post.

Are there any G/M/2E members that are near Newmarket, England? I'm on a business trip here, and just found out I have some free time during the weekend. Perhaps we could get together for an eyeball.

I guess we have this conversation every year. See

http://groups.yahoo.com/group/070/message/26208

and the responses.

Here's my take. Remember that it's unofficial, as I'm no longer the official 070 Rules Maven.

Note that the contest rules say "In the same spirit of the Word Of The Month Challenges." So let's refer to the WOTM rules. They say:

"A callsign can be used only 1 time for a monthly submission wih multiple occurrences of a letter (so for February's "COAXIAL CABLE" you must work 2 different stations with the Suffix Letter "C")."

So it's clear that for WOTM, a callsign can only be used once even if there are multiple words. I believe that "the spirit of the rules" as applied to the contest would imply that a single callsign can only be used once for the multiple words required for the contest bonus.

As a result, spelling ERIN, GO, and BRAGH require, respectively, 4,2, and 5 QSOs with unique stations, none of which can be reused for another word, for a total of 11 QSOs with 11 separate and distinct stations to claim the 200 point "bonus bonus."

Now I will admit that the reference to WOTM is not perfect as WOTM does not give partial credit for spelling individual words, as the contest does. (Hint to management coming.) So maybe the contest rules could be tweaked by adding something like:

"Note that a single callsign can only be used once anywhere in the phrase Erin Go Bragh, even if credit for only two words is claimed."

But I do believe that the above is both the intent of the club and the reasonable interpretation of the contest rules as written.

Going to my doctor today to see what he has to say.

May be a big change in direction on my treatment.

I am trying to place this in God's hands to guide me in the correct

I think we are going in the right direction now.

Re: scoring question?

David Westbrook
 

Eric -- as an example, would NO8R on 20M be ok as the ERIN "R", and NO8R on
40M as the BRAGH "R"?

Could go either way -- just needs an official arbitrary clarification:
Argument for "yes" is that they're separate, valid, point-scoring
contacts.
Argument for "no" is that it's the same callsign.

I'm working on updating the scoring utility, so need the exact logic to
implement ...

thanks!

now, why would you want to post something stupid like that?
 
we have new people joining every day. Some have not participated in our contests. The rules for this contest were not clear, despite the issue being discussed last year. You always seem to want to be the 'last word' on everything. Maybe insulting people is not the way to go, Jerry. I would have been better off submitting my log and claiming the 500 points, but since it was not clear, I asked, and took the 300 points instead.
