I've been monitoring that 'other' PSK31 reflector (TARA?) and it sounds to
me
like N3DQU and company (Alpha team) is just not ruffling enough feathers
over
there to do the 070 Club justice. So, anyone interested in going head to
head with TARA and any other challengers (and do it right) step up to that
keyboard and give me your call.

TARA PSK CERTIFICATES..

ny2u@...
 

Greetings:

There are some of you that have recently asked 'where' or 'why' the
certificates for the spring TARA PSK Rumble haven't been sent out as of yet.
This is a very good question at that, seeing how the contest ended in April!
And, the answer is rather simple, I've taken a vacation. The certificates and
hats to those that earned them have been held up because I've taken a few
months off from all this stuff this summer. I'm deeply sorry that they are
late in getting out, but let me reassure you that "everyone" that is entitled
to one--will receive them and hopefully soon!

Please understand that many of you have been writing to Ernie Mills, WM2U,
with hopes of finding out the answer to this whereabouts of the
certificates/hats. Ernie has absolutely NOTHING to do with the certificates
or hats being mailed out. In fact, if Ernie was the man handling this, they
most likely would have been in the mail within 24 hours after the final
deadline. Yes, my buddy Ernie is unbelievably efficient and very well
organized. Just the opposite of myself! Please DO NOT hold Ernie responsible
for such a long delay with the goodies, it falls clearly on my lap!

Please stay tuned and we'll let you know just as soon as they are ready to be
mailed. Oh, by the way, if anyone is interested I had a FANTASTIC summer!

Thanks For Your Patience!
NY2U "Mr.Bill"


success story

andris.brunenieks@...
 

Hi Folks and Jay, N3DQU

The success story consist of two parts:

Part one: I have repairing works in my bathroom, where I have placed my HAM
equipment, and I should move out ot there. Additionally we have local YL2 test
/part two (CW,SSB,RTTY) in night of 26. august. Me decided go to my summer house
out of Riga city, last weekend, and contesting from this place. I put my
equipment in bag and went out.

Part two: Camed to my summer house at 20.00 local time, drink buttel of bear,
and put equipment together. Switch on and tune antenna tuner on 3.5 Mc (contest
frequency). I have there inverted vee for 3.5 and 7 Mc with separate cables for
each band (I suggest to everobody - put separate cable for each band, dont
connect "dipoles" together, later You can tune this antenna for all amatuer
bands with good SWR). There was silence on band. Go upper: 14 Mc - nothing
interesting, tune 3.5 Mhz part of inverted vee to be ready for 20 meters, go
upper - 18 Mc, see something on screen You dont believe - N3DQU calling CQ. I
come in stress - does my 3.5 Mc part of inverted vee will be good enough to tune
for 18 Mc? Press necessary buttoms and see SWR 1:1 !!!!!!!!! Pressing of other
buttoms comes as childrens play. Yes, QSO !!!!

As all sucess story's should be with some little sad in it: we negotiate try
with Jay do the same on 24 Mc but on this success story ended. When I come back
to 18 Mc there was silence.

I can write another story about how I came to YL2 summer hamfest some weeks
before with some aim - read lecture about PSK31 with demonstration of it, put
equipment together, start demontration, find out on screen DL1AYL chatting with
somebody of 070, sorry dont remember with whoom, trying tune my TS570G on
inverted vee 3.5/7 Mc (another, connected together dipoles, with one cable) and
seeing how it is not tooning on 14 Mc. Sorry Erika, You dont get me with
callsign YL21HF forever. Later when we put phased dipoles for 20 meters You has
disappeared.

On sad note,

Andris YL800FD / YL2FD

Hi! Oh yeah, what a big surprise to see YL800FD come back to my CQ! Then
when we
QSY'd to 12m, I did not even see any static, the band was so dead. Back to
17m and it
was done too. So we must have caught the props just right Andris!
That was a fb contact! Jay N3DQU.

A friend of mine have now a Kenwood TS-50 and intend to use that rig for digital modes.
Anyone have experience with TS-50 ?
How to connect a simple homebrew interface to this rig ?
Thanks in advance for any help.

Rumble Team Basics 101

N3DQU@...
 

Looks like there are at least three 070 Club members looking for a Rumble
team to hook up with: Brian DA1TJO, Chris KC8LJN and Ernie WM2U. Check out
Ernie's website at < http://www.qsl.net/wm2u/ > to see what the new rules are
for the team category, but basically you should know that each team can have
up to 5 members, so if you are thinking about forming a team you will want to
go for the maximum number. Best to spread the members out geographically too.
Hey, you don't have to be a big contester to get in on the team action. This
is all for funsies with a new wrinkle thrown in! Once you have your team
members all lined up and have decided on a "Gaffer" (team leader), decide on
a name and send your team roster info to Ernie WM2U at emills@nycap.rr.com
and he will post your team up on the Rumble results website. You must
register your team with Ernie to officially be in the team category, so don't
forget this important step!

If you haven't already, you may want to subscribe to the TARA PSK
reflector. There has already been quite a bit of good-natured ribbing going
on there especially since the 070 ALPHA TEAM made it's debut earlier today,
so you won't want to miss out on the verbage leading up to the big event. To
sign up for the TARA reflector, send an email to <
psk-tara-subscribe@yahoogroups.com > and put the following in the BODY of the
message: subscribe psk-tara (your email address without the parenthesis). You
can also visit the TARA website at < http://www.n2ty.org/ > where they
already have a magic signup box already to go, all you have to do is plug in
your email address and push the button....Hope to see some more teams coming
on line soon! 73 de Jay N3DQU/070 ALPHA TEAM.

Re: W1SQLPSK V4 Available

Well my host did it to me again. I have to reload all the sever scripts for the third time this week. This will take a couple of hours to complete. New users will not be able to download the software but registered users should not have a problem. Don't know if your registered? Try anyway the worst that will happen is that you are returned to the registration page.
 
 
Sorry for the trouble,

Subject: [070] W1SQLPSK V4 Available

Hello All,
        I just uploaded a new beta version of W1SQLPSK. Version 4 is full of user recommended changes and enhancements. I have also uploaded a new sample call book data file. This release is a release candidate and should work fine as an upgrade or new install. However, as with any upgrade, you should be sure to backup you current files before the installation.

This is a pre-release copy. As such, please report any problems so that we can get them cleaned up as soon as possible.

Here are some of the features that are available in V4:

Improved macro setup and maintenance. Now you can change them on the fly.
Additional logging fields.
Improved configuration menu.
Added the ability to copy data from the receive window to the log fields as well as the clipboard.
Improved call sign lookup. Lookups now show previous contact and QSL status for each band by state.
Added a most wanted feature to remind you of key stations. This can be used to help find special events stations or DXpedition station.

Please check the website for all the information www.faria.net/w1sql
