Looks Good Matt
1 to 2 EST tonight for certain - need other slots but feel I should be able to make it tonight.
Hope someone else needs those hours too.
Just worked W1AW/5 on 20 and of to bed for a bit HI Hi.
St Patrick's day was fun. I made about 22 of the 24 hours - it was a long lonely  night _ only a coupl;e of us stayed in the battle although I managed to fill my Sunday Slots I'm surprised that some of the 24/7 hunters were not out there.
See you later

Yes, John, thanks for asking!  I've got the new FTdx3000 setup with a new (albeit very basic, it's more than I need!) 8GB/i3 3.4GHz/120MB SSD computer with paid HRD 6.1.  It's all working pretty well now.  I forgot just how much time I'd spent tweaking the macros and such in DM780, and since the old machine died, I can't retrieve them!  At least I had the logs saved off elsewhere.  I'll probably be looking over the recent threads on macros, as well as the ones we had back around the PSKFest.  You, David, Jerry, and several others gave me some great suggestions on contesting macros in particular, so I'd like to get it right again and *save* them this time! HRD has this functionality now - not sure if it did before or not, but I'll sure avail myself of it this time!

I look forward to playing in the next event, to be sure!

So we're looking at 1-2AM Eastern (I think I ciphered that right?) on which days, John?  I'll try to stay up for ya on those days.

Y'all take care,

Re: 24-7

Bummer , John !   Darn lightning. Hope you had radio disconnected.

Is coax bad ???  If you have Ohmmeter you can check continuity from center conductor on one end to the other... same for the shield.  You should see continuity from one end to the other, but NOT between the shield & center conductor. If you a short between conductors you probably need to remove coax plugs and resolder them. (Check ARRL Radio Handbook for how to solder. Be sure to flex coax at plugs by wiggling them a bit. Had a bad solder connection on one of jumpers.

The antenna may be fixable. 

Good luck !

Re: TIME

For me personally, everything is in UTC, logs and all.  I'd just not updated my brand new computer to UTC yet.  I've not made any contacts with it yet, so there's no log corruption or anything, and I'll certainly have it correctly logging UTC before I do make the first one.

I just wanted to make sure I was staying up at the right time tonight - that's the only reason I brought up Eastern. Really should've just double checked the time myself and not brought it up, I reckon.  

Thanks for the concern about my logging and everything else being in UTC - nice to have someone watching out!

Looks Good Matt
1 to 2 EST tonight for certain - need other slots but feel I should be able to make it tonight.
Hope someone else needs those hours too.
Just worked W1AW/5 on 20 and of to bed for a bit HI Hi.
St Patrick's day was fun. I made about 22 of the 24 hours - it was a long lonely  night _ only a coupl;e of us stayed in the battle although I managed to fill my Sunday Slots I'm surprised that some of the 24/7 hunters were not out there.
See you later
