ALL;

Have successfully completed my overnight Monday with all needed slots during
early morning hours having been completed. Need 2 slots this afternoon to
close out Monday totally then another try for Tuesday early morning hours
again and all week if I can manage and keep myself in the night schedule.
I'll be available for your afternoon slots. I'll be waiting on 20m.

KC9UR Pontoon Portable APE Sighting Confirmed

v32hoosier@...
 

Sources have confirmed that the KC9UR Pontoon Portable APE has been sighted and is expected to be on the air this afternoon through Wednesday afternoon (8/24 - 8/26).  The APE will be operating from Stan's (W9SMR/9) pontoon boat afloat on Round Lake in northeast Indiana using the KC9UR callsign.  We plan to operate on 8 bands (40m thru 6m), depending on propagation, with two rigs simultaneously on different bands.  


As in past years we are offering a nice QSL card, and for those APE hunters with lots of bananas and persistance, a custom certificate if you work us on three bands (see the KC9UR QRZ page for details).  Last year there were 11 certificate winners (i.e. K4LEA, K8TOM, KE4JB, KK4CPS, KU8Q, N5SLY, N7WE, W2DEN, W3GXV, W3WMU and WA4MIT)!  Special kudos went to 3 certificate winners who worked us on 4 bands (K8TOM, N7WE and W2DEN)! We're looking forward to seeing everyone again on the waterfall - Happy Hunting!


73,

Bob, KC9UR

Robert,

You are going to make me blush. I'm just glad to have a great group of
people to share in the fun. We had a great run last year and I hope
this is the start of another one. We already have David done (finally),
and John is well on his way.

Here's hoping he gets that #20 spot!

11:00 slot completed easily – got 2 within a couple of minutes. So
far, after some fretting and worrying would not be successful all
previously needed slots have been filled. Next hour (12:00 UTC) is the
last to be worked this date for about 6 hours than 2 afternoon slots
to work.

Appreciate all those 070 members (and a few of the 070 members I was
not aware of) bailing me out. It has been an easy run as trained
myself for 30 plus years to be awake during night hours so finding the
calls was the toughest…. You guys helped out a TON. We can do this
again all week and clear the board so I get CERT number 20 (assuming
nobody else sneaks in front of me… I’m not going to mention any names,
David KJ4IZW, … LOL).
Excellent. Looking forward to seeing you in 20 minutes. Still planning
on 40m first.

Keep it up!

Good news! I'm still on 40m for the next slot in a couple minutes. If
that doesn't fly, we can try 20m.

Scratch it as I never decoded you… Sorry Thanks for the try…– A station out of MT caught me – had a huge sig so that hour is now covered. Maybe next hour, in like 10 minutes, if still around band will improve a little. I have a serious noise problem on 40 right now – 20 is quiet – both in noise and sigs.

crashed too early the noise floor dropped a bunch here about 02:45 CDT, but John has a problem in his waterfall some where as his trace looks more like QSP than PSK. will hang for a while and see if he gets it lined out.  Yes oh by the way David K9DWR was a very big factor in getting all of my blocks filled as well.  He had his 24x7 and could have slept in but did not in many cases gave me the backup call when my normal suspects were not workable.  His example of helping the others across the finish line is in the finest tradition of the hobby and an encouragement to those who also have completed events to put in a little extra effort when you can. David Westbrook also filled in several.  73 and thanks agn kd0fip 1396 Robert

Saw KG7DZB working you, but couldn't see you. :-( 
 
Worked a very weak K7EV in Washington  and briefly saw Robert  KD9FIP, but that was all.

In 15 minutes (02:00 CENTRAL), I will begin calling CQ on 40m since that band seems to be the most “open” to the try. Then every hour for the next 5 hours…. Oi!!!!
 
Anyone want to try and wade in the mud with me?
