IOTA Ref Number

Steve W3HF
 

Does anyone know whether Whidbey Island in Puget Sound counts
as IOTA NA-065 (WA State North Group) or NA-169 (WA State
West Group)? From the names, I would guess the former, but I'm
not sure.

By the way, if you can find him, Guy, WB5MXO/7 is vacationing on
the island. I worked him last Friday (20m), and I think he said he'd
be there for a month.

73,
Steve

Well personally I think it is the best PSK contest software going
(cant beat the price either). Now my opinion is slightly biased given
the testing that I did. One important note *** You MUST use the
[enter] key to go to the next field. If you do not, the mults will
not be correct (i.e.. no [tab] key).
One of the tests that I conducted was to load my TDW contacts and the
scoring came out perfect. Now if only I would have had this in June.
I have also verified the scoring and duping for the upcoming Rumble
and it is all set. The CCCC and Anatolian contests have been checked
over but not as detailed as the TDW and Rumble.
Jay -- you can address the xyl situation with a wav file keyed by the
task manager in Windows. You could use a proximity sensor too. My xyl
runs screaming when the computer talks to her :)

Off The Air (maybe)

tgstoops <n3xc@...>
 

Hi all,  just to let everyone know that I will off the air for awhile.  The xly and I are going to sunny Arizona for 10 days to visit her cousin and family.  I am hoping to use her computer in Az. to correspond with everyone, to keep up to date on all the activities going on with the Rumble coming up.. If I'm lucky, I'll find a local ham that will let me use his rig to make some qso's from 7 land..I tried to put together a portable station that I could take with me but to no avail...So, DA1TJO, YL2FD AND KC0DEB, keep looking for that last TOP DOG, and see you guys soon on the air! 
 
WOOF!

Mysteries of the 070 Club explained!

N3DQU@...
 

Every so often we hear from an 070 Club member who wonders why he got his
certificate in the mail but not his endorsements, or visa versa. For those
relatively new to the 070 Club and those members who have often wondered but
were afraid to ask, here is a brief description of the 070 Club organization
and what happens with your applications.

The 070 Club is a PSK awards program sponsored by the Penn-Ohio DX
Society, a very small (only 4 members!) HF-oriented club located in western
Pennsylvania and more commonly known by its initials PODXS (pronounced
PO-DIX), not to be confused with the Ohio/Penn DX Bulletin, a very fine
weekly DX newsletter published by Tedd Mirgliotta, KB8NW.

The 070 Club itself is run by two guys, both named Jay. For convenience
sake and to avoid any confusion, they will be referred to by their callsigns
KA3X and N3DQU.

KA3X is the manager of the 070 Club and holds certificate #001. He is the
Top Banana and takes care of the new members, issues 070 Club member numbers,
member certificates, Ragchewers certificates and QSO upgrade spots (e.g. 50,
100, 150, etc). KA3X's email address is < JHudak3rd@aol.com >.

N3DQU takes care of the 070 Club website and all of the information placed
therein. He also takes care of the 070 Club reflector, issues the
endorsements (e.g. Aloha, Lower 48, Hot Dog!, etc.) and often spends his off
hours thinking up new ones just to keep you guys busy! N3DQU is also the
contest manager and takes care of such things as the Three-Day Weekend (TDW),
which just took place in June and was a big success! N3DQU's email address is
< n3dqu@aol.com >.

If they are lucky, KA3X and N3DQU may see each other once a month. There
is no central database and no meetings to conduct 070 Club business. Almost
all correspondence regarding the 070 Club is passed between the two via the
internet, and each mails out the respective items that they are responsible
for to the members. For example, if a member puts in for an upgrade to the
300 QSO level and also applies for an Aloha endorsement, then the 300 spot
will be mailed out by KA3X and the Aloha endorsement will be mailed out by
N3DQU.

For best results, please send your applications and requests to the person
responsible for that particular item. If you send a QSO upgrade to N3DQU for
example, your request has to be forwarded to KA3X and may result in a delay.
By the same token, if you send an endorsement request to KA3X, then he must
forward the information to N3DQU, once again possibly resulting in a delay.

So you can see that it is quite possible to receive your upgrades,
certificates, and endorsements all at different times, even though you had
applied for them at the same time. The TARA Spring Wakeup and the TDW also
slowed throughput down quite abit this past two months, but the backlog has
been cleared up and everything is now back on track.

The 070 Club is free and open to all amateurs licensed to operate on the
HF bands. Operation of this awards program is made possible thru the support
of PODXS and contributions made by 070 Club members. Many thanks to all the
070 Members for your participation and enthusiasm! 73 de Jay N3DQU.

Yet Another PSK Rumble Team

Just to let everyone know, I too am also considering forming a team.
Although I recognize the capabilities of the teams that have already been
formed, I believe that our (presently unnamed) team will truly shine.

I would solicit anyone interested to contact me directly at w3hf@arrl.net

Rumble Team Basics 101 Part 2

N3DQU@...
 

The teams for the Fall Rumble are forming up nicely and some challenges
have already been made! But it is not too late to form up your own team. In
fact, if you are of a mind to "roll your own", now is the time to do it. Yes,
'tis true that the Fall Rumble is still a little over a month away, but it
would be a good idea to get your team organized early and avoid the last
minute rush which is sure to happen come October.
So where do you go to find members for your team? One place you can go is
to the TDW results page at <
http://hometown.aol.com/n3dqu/2001_tdw_results.htm >. There you will find all
of the 070 members who sent in entries for the 2001 TDW. Once you find some
likely candidates, send them an invitation via email. If you don't have their
addresses, go to QRZ.com to see if the info is posted there. If not, KA3X or
N3DQU may be able to help get you connected.
Looking for someone in particular? Say for example, that you need a
European anchor to round out your team but don't have a particular psker in
mind. Then I suggest you post a message on the 070 reflector with your
request. In fact, sending out a general call for team members on the 070
reflector just might net you some surprising results. The 070 Club currently
has 132 members and about half are signed on to this reflector, so you have a
pretty good audience listening. There is no law either that everyone on your
team has to be an 070 Club member. Have a QSO with someone who might fit into
your scheme of things? Ask him if he'd like to join your team. Who knows, he
just might say yes!
And don't forget, the 070 Club is offering special Attaboys to team
participants for the Fall Rumble. If that isn't an incentive, I don't know
what is! Good luck and good hunting de Jay N3DQU.

Neat idea.

I have a standing offer from Dennis K6DF to visit (and even guest operate)
the Pampanito some time while I'm out here. Would that also qualify,

Just curious (and looking for an angle).
