Re: WTW checker & xls workbook

 

May I say something?
Good and thanks.
What do I do? I run my log through David's KJ4IZW Award Checker.
I then go to the WTW page after my log is through running.
That gives me a completed report named "070-WTW.xls"
You can review it, print all or any part of it, SAVE IT, AND when you've completed an Award segment, you can email it to me!
Great system! Very simple and it makes paper work easier for everybody.
Of course, as with the WOTMC that I also check the logs for, I'm a volunteer and will accept and review any log that is sent, regardless of the format, (except .adi., farsi or poshtu.)
Just my opinion, and thanks to David, once again, for a super contribution to the Club!

I downloaded the WTW checker and hand-loaded 17 Qs. I must be doing something
wrong. I put the data in the appropriate columns and when I hit ENTER after
loading a callsign the purple column on the far left says "BAD DATE". I tried
changing date format...no joy.

070 CLUB LOW BAND SPRINTS ROLLING START PRIMER

J Budzowski <jbudzowski@...>
 

070 CLUB LOW BAND SPRINTS ROLLING START PRIMER

Note: Although this primer refers to the 40m Sprint, the Rolling Start concept is applicable to all of the 070 Club low band sprints. Understanding the Rolling Start is key to successful participation in these events.

For those of you who have never played in one of our sprints, you should know that this contest features
what is called a "Rolling Start". A rolling start means that the contest does not start and stop at the same time for everyone like a normal contest does, nor are the start and stop times based on UTC or Zulu time, but
instead are based on YOUR LOCAL TIME, 2000-0200. Think of it as six-hour contest windows, opening and closing sequentially around the globe...hmmmm.
The whole purpose of the rolling start is to create a contest venue, where the propagation conditions are more or less the same for everyone around the world. If you think about it, starting a 40m sprint contest at 2000z for
everyone would be great for the guys in Region 1, but not much fun for the rest of the world. On the east coast of North America for example, 2000z is 1600 EDT and 40m at this time is still short skip at best, while in region 1
the contesters would be enjoying long skip conditions. The rolling start attempts to eliminate this problem by equalizing propagation conditions for all competitors in their respective time zones around the world.
So, how does the rolling start work? Everyone's contest window, no matter where they live, is 2000-0200 their local time. In other words, a DL's contest window is 2000-0200 his/her local time, a G's contest window is
2000-0200 his/her local time, a W3's contest window is 2000-0200 his/her local time, a W7's contest window is 2000-0200 his/her local time, etc. Yes, this means that not everyone will be working the contest at the same time, but the contest window overlaps a number of time zones on either side of your own time zone, so there should be enough action to make the contest enjoyable for all. Unfortunately, coastal stations are handicapped somewhat with a lack of land mass on one side, so to compensate our low band sprints are 6 hours long, rather than the normal 4 hours. The 6 hour sprint also increases the chance of low band contest activity between Europe and the east coast of North America.
Now that you have (hopefully) figured out the concept of the rolling start, you should be aware that only contacts you make within your contest window (2000-0200 YOUR LOCAL TIME) count towards your score. If you work a station at say, 1900 your local time, that is outside of your contest window
and the contact does not count...for you! But, if that 1900 local time contact is also working the 40m sprint and the contact was made within his contest window, you did him a favor by giving him a point towards his score.
Working someone outside your contest window is a very hammy thing to do and will not jeopardize your chance for a certificate, because we award certificates for top score in each time zone! So, if you're going to have
the rig fired up early and checking out the props anyways, you might as well give out some points to your fellow contesters. In fact, we encourage you to work sprint contesters outside of your contest window. Who knows, maybe when your contest window opens up, they will hang around and return the favor! We especially encourage you to stay up late if you can and work them left coasters, who every year agonize at hearing all the contest activity while they are anxiously awaiting for their contest window to open, only to hear
the stations go QRT when they are finally able to work them for points! So stay up an hour or two after your contest window is closed and work some of them guys west of you. They will appreciate it!
A final note about logging. Although the 40m Sprint is based on your local time, there is no need to change the times in your log to local time. Leave your logs at UTC and we will figure it out from there.
Hopefully this little primer turned the light on for anyone wondering what the heck this rolling start is all about. If you're still having problems with the concept or have any questions about the low band sprints
in general, please send an email to jbudzowski@verizon.net and I will be glad to answer them for you. Hpe to cu on 40m!....73 de Jay N3DQU

There is a guy who was far enough away he was able to put up a tower for the purposes of over the air TV in spite of the CC&Rs - they can not prevent putting up such antennas and he was able to show he needed it to get enough signal. Now his real plan was to also mount various ham antennas on the tower as well :)

Unfortunately the only good "wire" trees are on my neighbors properties. They wouldn't take kindly to me draping anything over their trees. I just installed it one day and I haven't gotten any flak so far. Hopefully it will stay that way although there is no radiation danger at my power levels.
A tower is a definite no-no. I'm just trying not to attract any attention.
A former neighbor actually thought that it was an antenna to pick up that new digital TV stuff. I did my best to explain what it was in laymans terms but all I got was a puzzled look.

Please read the Rules and the FAQ's 1st, then review the spreadsheets and pdf files.

"Work The World" isn't a Sprint. It's an award to encourage everyone to get on the air more, perhaps to participate in our operating events a little more and have a more enjoyable time with psk31.
Enjoy and,

Milt,

Don't forget that I only own a total of just over 600 QSO's accumulated over about 6 years of "serious" operating. It goes really slowly when you use 1.5W.

You can bet that I will give it my best shot.

And I thought that LONP was going to take a long time. HI HI

Oh good grief Joe. There's only 2,233 total contacts involved. :-)
They will be a Scoring Tool on David's website as soon as he releases it. He was awaiting our announcement on the 070 website.
It gives a comprehensive breakdown as to continent and country and how many of each letter is involved.
We're 23 minutes into it already.
Have fun.

Fellow members,
I'm pleased to announce the "Work The World" has now been unveiled at the PODXS 070 Club website!

Please read the Rules and the FAQ's 1st, then review the spreadsheets and pdf files.

"Work The World" isn't a Sprint. It's an award to encourage everyone to get on the air more, perhaps to participate in our operating events a little more and have a more enjoyable time with psk31.
Enjoy and,
73,
Milt.

The case I'm referring to was somewhere in the south.  The HOA did go after him but made a mess of it so he won the case :)
In my case I do have CC&Rs but not HOA to enforce them...
Cheers,

There is a guy who was far enough away he was able to put up a tower for the purposes of over the air TV in spite of the CC&Rs - they can not prevent putting up such antennas and he was able to show he needed it to get enough signal. Now his real plan was to also mount various ham antennas on the tower as well :)

Milt,

The only thing I can fit on this property is a vertical. I use a Diamond BB7V. I'll bet you thought that I was using a dummy load right? Unfortunately the only good "wire" trees are on my neighbors properties. They wouldn't take kindly to me draping anything over their trees. I just installed it one day and I haven't gotten any flak so far. Hopefully it will stay that way although there is no radiation danger at my power levels.
A tower is a definite no-no. I'm just trying not to attract any attention.
A former neighbor actually thought that it was an antenna to pick up that new digital TV stuff. I did my best to explain what it was in laymans terms but all I got was a puzzled look.
You talk to who? Where? Waddya gonna do.

2,233 contacts is the minimum, if everything fits perfectly in place.
Refer to David's Scoring tool. There's a link on the W T W portion of the 070 Club website.

Best you can do is tell them it's for digital TV and then they can't argue (no one can prevent you from putting up Over The Air TV antennas by FCC decree).
Cheers,
Dan

Milt,
 
The only thing I can fit on this property is a vertical.  I use a Diamond BB7V. I'll bet you thought that I was using a dummy load right?  Unfortunately the only good "wire" trees are on my neighbors properties.  They wouldn't take kindly to me draping anything over their trees.  I just installed it one day and I haven't gotten any flak so far.  Hopefully it will stay that way although there is no radiation danger at my power levels.
A tower is a definite no-no. I'm just trying not to attract any attention.
A former neighbor actually thought that it was an antenna to pick up that new digital TV stuff.  I did my best to explain what it was in laymans terms but all I got was a puzzled look.
You talk to who? Where?  Waddya gonna do.
 
73 (yawn)
 
I'll start climbing "Everest" tomorrow.

Joe,
May I ask what your antenna is?
Milt.

Milt,

Don't forget that I only own a total of just over 600 QSO's accumulated over about 6 years of "serious" operating. It goes really slowly when you use 1.5W.

You can bet that I will give it my best shot.

And I thought that LONP was going to take a long time. HI HI

Oh good grief Joe. There's only 2,233 total contacts involved. :-)
They will be a Scoring Tool on David's website as soon as he releases it. He was awaiting our announcement on the 070 website.
It gives a comprehensive breakdown as to continent and country and how many of each letter is involved.
We're 23 minutes into it already.
Have fun.

Milt,

I must say that you certainly have outdone even the wildest speculation.

Er...how many lifetimes do we get to complete this???? I think I will have to use up all nine!

Many thanks for all the effort.

Fellow members,
I'm pleased to announce the "Work The World" has now been unveiled at the PODXS 070 Club website!

Please read the Rules and the FAQ's 1st, then review the spreadsheets and pdf files.

"Work The World" isn't a Sprint. It's an award to encourage everyone to get on the air more, perhaps to participate in our operating events a little more and have a more enjoyable time with psk31.
Enjoy and,
73,
Milt.

If you don't have Excel, you can simply use the online Endorsement Checker
to track progress, and it also generates a text file you can submit to Milt
(which is designed for him to simply drop into the excel workbook so it
saves him a lot of time).
