Date   

W7D

Frank Kisselbach
 

Starting 1/7 for 3 days I will be running a special event W7D from Camino Del Diablo in southern AZ. We will be camping in 3 different locations (grids) and two different counties.

I will be running psk and we will also have a second station running ssb and cw.

 

Since this is also near a bombing range with unexploded ordinance and is inhabited by rattlesnakes and scorpions we will stay very close to the road.

I am glad the W1AW portables are finished.  It was fun.  Disappointed that not all states were active with PSK31 each time around and wish the PSK ops were using more HF bands.
 
Ready to start on the 2015 awards!
 
Looking forward to the PSKFest.  It is hard for me to do 24 hours all at once but I'll give it a try.  I have a TV in the shack so I'll be able to see the Panthers/Cardinals game on Saturday afternoon.
 
Yesterday, I called CQ and LM1814 came back to my call.  What is LM1814 I thought?? Sounds like an Integrated Circuit part number.  I have never worked a station that did not have a suffix in the call sign.  Looked them up and they are legit special event call from Norway.  Anyone else worked any stations that do not have a suffix?  Many years ago, I heard JY1 on the air in SSB but did not work him.  (King Hussein(SK) from Jordan.)
 
Worked 3 stations in December that said I was the first QSO they had on PSK31.  Another said I was the second one and another one that said I was the first contact on 40 meters.  Two more this past week said Santa brought them a Signalink and they were getting up to speed on PSK31.  Tried to get them interested in the 070 Club.  A thought, how about some kind of card that could be included in the envelope with a paper QSL card to a prospective member?  I get a lot of paper cards via direct mail and could send them an 070 Club membership promo card in return along with my card.  Any ideas or suggestions? 
 
Finally, here's some stuff I cut and pasted from various PSK31 QSOs in 2014.  Some are humorous and others might be of interest to someone.

Happy New Year to all !

Bill.... loved some of those comments !  Got a couple laughs.  Have seen some of that over the past year.  Perhaps it's time to send actual signal reports like "111" or "222' ...some of them are that good a copy !  Some of the stuff that comes across the screen is really laughable, but we must remember that DX stations have a limited Engrish vocabulary and give them credit for trying.  But sometimes it's just rotten propagation that causes "hits & misses" and gives some words an entirely different meaning. But it is funny.

Off the air for a while with station rebuilding and more coax problems.

2015 PSKFest

Matthew King - KK4CPS <mrk.twg@...>
 

It's coming up quick, y'all!  This year's PSKFest is 0000Z-2400 UTC, Saturday, 03 January 2015. 

This year we're combining the single-band and multi-band QRP categories for the PSKFest. Please let us know on the lists if there's a desire for both categories so that we can determine if we need to keep both for all of contests in the future. We certainly encourage QRP activity of any sort!

We will also remove the "single op only" restraint so that clubs may participate. If there is a desire for a multi-op category for this and other contests, please let us know on the lists so that we can determine if we need to formally implement a multi-op category.

The automatic scorer is the official log submission method for all of our contests from this point on! No more hand-scoring or custom excel work!! 

You can see the results from last year's PSKFest as well as many other contests now. The 2015 PSKFest submission link will be live by contest day. Here's the link to the scorer page:  http://hamclubs.info/scorer/ We had 97 logs entered last year. Please tell all of your friends about the PSKFest - let's see if we can't increase that number by 50% or so! :-)

The contest arena is swirling with upcoming news: we've listened to all sorts of feedback and have some very exciting changes and updates (some minor & some major) and even a couple of additions all coming very soon. We'll soon debut our new trophies for the Top Dog position in each of our ten contests, as well as the inaugural Rollo Cup Championship Series!  That's all I can say right now, but stay tuned as it's going to be great fun!

Let's kick off the 2015 PODXS 070 Contest Season right with a record breaking PSKFest! 

Please, everybody have just as much fun with it as you can possibly stand!

73 y'all
