At the risk of being flamed again I will say that I have been trying out FLDIGI and while not the slickest GUI it does seem to do all modes well. I have being testing it linked into LOG4OM as a database and really like it.
No matter what you settle on I hope it serves your needs

John -


Well I would be thrilled with 15 new calls. :-) (Only got one new one yesterday.)


But I hope when you say that you picked up 15 new calls that you are not talking about when you were at the club (and using the club callsign). The only LONP points you can count for your own LONP total are ones that you work using your own callsign. (Ones that you work with the club's callsign would count toward the club's LONP total if the club itself were an 070 member.)


(See question #7 in the club callsign policy at http://www.podxs070.com/frequently-asked-questions/o7o-club-callsign-policy  )

Not sure if that is a final count yet as not sure how long it takes the logger to update fully and properly give credit where credit is due… so with that being said I STILL need 17 more contact of 070 members.

 

I worked 20M heavily Sat evening through about 23:00 CST then switched over to 40, which was coming in and kept getting busier. I then bounced back and forth between 20 and 40 for the rest of my day (until 0300 CST this date). Went to bed for 5 hours, got up and found 40 meters polluted badly this AM. Worked that band for many hours then finally faded off to 15m where I did fairly well for about 1.5 hours (about 25 contacts.) 10M sadly was crap all weekend here in my area. 80 meters was near nonexistent.

Nothing special, just 1D EPA from the home station. I'm actually glad I'm not out with the group we (Matt and I) operated with before. That was the EPA QRP club, and we operated from a campsite at French Creek State Park, full battery operation with solar supplement. (The club stopped those activities a few years ago.) Today's weather is constant rain, and camping last night and tonight would have been miserable.

Re: FD Station N4DAB

Joseph Miller <kj8o.ham@...>
 

Our club, The Oakland County Amateur Radio Society (W8TNO)​ just went through a rather sudden change of plans due to the expected weather conditions for Saturday. As a result, I will be working W8TNO, PODXS070 #1520, from my home as a "1D" instead. If you are also working as "1D", go ahead and make the contact anyway, as it will score NO points for Field Day, but it does count for LONP. I am not worried about the club score, as we will still be able to turn in a score anyway.

Hope to make contact with you.

Everybody,

One of the things that I really enjoy about the 070 Club is LONP. The KJ4IZW Award checking software makes it very easy to keep up with what you've worked.

But, that only addresses 1/2 of the situation. The other half is of course, recognizing a call sign as a station that is an 070 Club member and then, have you worked them before?

I use MixW, and it's worked out very good. I download, from the KJ4IZW Ham Club Membership list, the up to date "icon.cfg" file and up to date file of member icons. These go in the appropriate folders within the main MixW program folder.

When I click on a trace and that station identifies themselves, I get a pop-up icon that gives me their 070 number and 1st name. By clicking on the call sign, MixW tells me if I've ever worked them and the date, time, band and if it's a confirmed contact.

It sounds kind of complicated, but it's a whole lot simpler than trying to keep up with manual lists, spreadsheets and gray matter memory.

I just thought I'd throw that out there and see what other folks use to keep up with their LONP.

Thanks guys, After talking with Chris I figured it out. It was a rather simple thing as usual and I feel awful actually. I use a Mac computer and run windows on VMware. I had shut my windows down and usually my usb interface will default back to the Mac. It did not this time and I started Windows back up but when I tried using my fldigi on the Mac the usb interface was not there. I did not think to check it out until after talking with Chris. So, a big thanks to Chris.
