Does anyone lack Mississippi?

Peter Baskind <pbaskind@...>
 

At then end of the month, I am heading down to Biloxi, to visit family. I
was wondering if anyone needs the Magnolia State. If so, I might lug down a
computer there.

Mississippi is kinda short for me (I haven't worked it PSK), so if it were a
common state, I really wouldn't know. 'Seems like I have seen a guy in
Biloxi working some folks a couple times, though...

New Award Program

Charlie Trice, K8IJ <cctrice@...>
 

Greetings all,

We are very pleased to announce an exciting new 070 Club award program to
give you even more reasons to make PSK QSOs - "The PSK Maidenhead Grid
Award". The 070 Club web site at http://podxs.com/html/070_club.html has
all the information. Look for the NEW animated link near the bottom.

Please note that the program officially begins on October 1st, so there is
no need to go digging back through your logs. Everyone will begin together
at zero and only a few actual QSLs are required, as you will see.

Many thanks to Bernie, KF4FHS and Steve, N6YIH/7 for all their time and
effort to bring this program to life. And, of course, an extra "thank you"
to Steve for all his web crafting work on the new site. And one special
"thank you" to Jay, N3DQU for allowing us to bring this program to life.

Vy 73,

Charlie, K8IJ


Flames, Frags, and reflector etiquette

AA8QQJMauch@...
 

Hi All, and Steve (W3HF),

Yes, I must be crazy. When N3DQU and I first talked about starting the 070
Club, it was
supposed to help organize PSKers by offering awards and having fun. Note
that one of the key phrases here is having fun. It seems to have gotten lost
lately.

We have all different kinds of people in ham radio and in the 070 Club.
Various life styles, IQ's, jobs, and backgrounds. The message I sent about
working my own station was ONLY intended to rattle Steve, W3HF's cage because
of all his precision, engineering type talk.
Nothing more.

Most of my friends who are engineers don't mind this type of ribbing and
don't take it seriously. Not all of us can design bridges, skyscrapers, and
such. I'm sorry I sent it to Chas.

Actually, now that I see all the bashing I took behind my back, I'm sorry I
sent it at all! I thought higher of most of folks. I feel kind of like
Orson Wells after his Halloween Martian invasion gag.

So, Steve, if I was wrong for stereotyping you as an engineer, I apologize.

As for the rest of the jail house lawyers out there, LIGHTEN UP! There are
way to many folks taking everything that's posted on here way to seriously.
Just because you don't agree with something someone said, doesn't mean you
have to go off the deep end over it. The club is growing. The more members
we get, the more this is going to be a problem. It's up to every one of us
to keep it in check. Myself included. Remember, once you hit the SEND
button, it's to late to take it back. There's no need to rewrite the rules
and make every word associated with the 070 Club legalese.

The 070 Club is supposed to be fun. For everyone!

Chill Out,
Jay - AA8QQ

To see some additional 070 publicity, Ken's certificate is also
visible in the ARRL's writeup of the Japan Ham Fair.

Check out the similar shot of the Japan Amateur Radio Teleprinter
Society, about halfway down the page at:

Thank you for the pictures. And I do not consider it off-topic when

TARA RUMBLE NEWS...PLEASE READ!

ny2u@...
 

Greetings:

I want to let all of you know that the certificates from the TARA PSK Rumble
2002 - "The Spring Wake-Up" are now complete, and they will be mailed out by
Monday, possibly even earlier. Personally, I think the certificates look very
distinctive and they will certainly look well in any hamshack! I hope those
of you that receive them will appreciate the work that went into them and
that you'll show them off proudly.

Please keep in mind that the certificates and the TARA hats will be mailed
independently. So, if you are one of the lucky ones that should receive both
awards please give them a few days to get your way! As I said everything will
be mailed NO LATER than Monday afternoon!

This contest TARA will mail ALL of the certificates in specially designed
mailing pouches to protect them from getting damaged in shipping. I hope
you'll agree that we've taken ever precaution to make sure your certificate
comes to your mailbox in one piece! I'll be willing to bet there are not many
other organizations doing this for you! These mailing pouches do add an
extra amount of cost to our contest efforts but we believe it's well worth
the added expense.

I think you should know there are a few folks from TARA and friends of TARA
that should be acknowledged for all they do to make these Rumbles a total
success.

First, there is our Contest Manager, Ed Eades, KC2HNC, ( kc2hnc@... )
who joined the Rumble Team this year and he's been an excellent addition to
the team. Ed has a lot of refreshing ideas and his enthusiasms is very nice
to see.

Next, we have Karen Smith, KB2UUC ( ksmithkb2uuc@... ), our Vice
President of TARA. Karen is one of the most supporting VP's a club president
could ever have. She is ALWAYS the first one to volunteer for
everything/anything she can assist with. She is responsible for "ALL" of the
certificates getting mailed out and the hats too! It was her suggestion this
contest that we use the new mailing pouches to protect everyone's awards.

Then we have Joe Pasquini, N2NOU ( jpasquin@... ). He is the guy
that gets all the results ALL TO LATE and is asked to please print the
certificates up immediately! Joe is a great supporter and ALWAYS gives us his
best and we believe you'll agree when you see your certificate.

Last but not least, we have Ernie Mills, WM2U ( emills@... ). He is
the soul creator of the PSK Rumble and he makes sure things go off without a
hitch. How in hell he does all this is still a mystery to me, but he does!
He also does "ALL" the web page postings/updates entirely by himself. Every
contest Ernie is the one that gets all of the press releases out and he
personally answers 100's of e-mails every week about PSK in general and the
TARA Rumble. When it comes to the "Rules & Regulations" again that is Ernie's
bag, he constantly reviews them and looks for new ways to better the contest.

I hope "ALL" of you will take time to personally thank these individuals for
their efforts. You'll note that I've included their e-mail addresses for you.
They never ask for a single thing in return for all they give but I think
they deserve to hear from you! Don't you think it's the proper thing to do?

The next Ruble is just a few weeks away and I hope you'll be joining us once
again. You can find the full "Rules & Regulations" at www.qsl.net/wm2u/
There is a special request I have for all of you. In the past we have had a
lot of chatter/banter between the members of the various teams under the
"Team Challenge". However, this contest I ask you to please leave all that
chatter/banter on the TARA NEWS GROUP and PLEASE DO NOT congest the "070 News
Group" or others with the added e-mails. In the past our emails have added
unneeded congestion to the other news groups and they need the space for
normal everyday postings. PLEASE don't get the idea that we don't want you
folks to give one another the "heat" especially when it's all in the good
sprit of the contest!! We just ask you to keep all those e-mails for the TARA
NEWS GROUP at PSK-TARA@... or come join the news group at
www.yahoogroups.com/group/psk-tara

Thank You!

Dear Jay (AA8QQ),

Please pardon the lengthy delay in answering your email. I was away on
family and business trips.

My very first reaction to your unique question was, "What? Are you crazy?
Absolutely not!"

Off the reflector I got many personal comments from other members. Among
them:

"contacts with non-members do not count ..."

"A valid QSO is one made via PSK31 mode on the HF bands
between two 070 Club members .." --emphasis on the word TWO.

"this award will encourage members to work each other using
PSK31." Emphasis on the words "each other."

"All in all, a nice try, but no cigar."

And one making reference to the inmates not taking their medication...

So - I'll now say this: "What? Are you crazy? Absolutely not!"

And we'll come up with a rule change so that everything is perfectly clear.

Vy 73,

Charlie, K8IJ

Chas K8IJ,
Today my nephew KC8PHI worked PSK31 from my home station as KC8PHI/AA8QQ.
I
went to his QTH and worked PSK mobile as AA8QQ/M.

My question is this, since I worked AA8QQ (070 Club number 032) would this
qualify as me working station AA8QQ for LONP?

My logic is as follows (Mr. Spock agrees):

If a non 070 club member was to work from USS Pampanito (a member station
with an 070 Club number) and they worked an 070 club member who was
working
on LONP, that would count for the 070 club member chasing LONP, right?
So,
by the same token, if someone works my station (also an 070 Club member
station) even though it's another op, say in a contest, that should also
count for them toward LONP, right?

So, how about in my case?

73,
Jay - AA8QQ
