Got him Matt for my first APE of the year!

Thanks guys for swinging on the low (40m) vines so I could spot you.

Funny the XYL had bought a bunch of bahnannaas earlier in the day so I guess it really works.

Back in September of 2014 I looked at PODXS-070 members by state.  AR had 15 members. 

We have members in every state.  But the states with the fewest members were:

Vermont - 2
RI and D of C - 3
AL, DE, ND, and WY - 4

We've a lot of new members since then, so thing may have changed.

Re: moving up the list

I briefly saw WB4MNK so never actually worked him. Got CO6CG which is all I needed for the time slot. Let me get out of the “WOW, I am tired” stage and I will be more than happy to assist anyone work their way up the grid…. Be specific of day/time and if the noise/static gods decide to be quiet or at least talk in a low roar I will help anyone. I understand the time and effort (now) it takes to get the hardest hours available.  I’d help with the 11:00 am hour (i.e. 16:00 Central) if I awaken by then and get on in time.

 

So, in summary, 2 days – 100% success and those days are now closed out as complete.

 

I am going to find a bed to fall into and not wake up for oh… maybe 15 hours or thereabouts to start this all over again tonight.

 

Thanks to all who TRIED and those who actually was able to get through the noise to me. 

 

Wednesday is going to be the hardest challenge as I have time slots spread out all over – with 2 hour breaks in between but I am devoted to getting these done if possible.

 

The fun begins at 02:00 Central time (07:00 UTC) so see all then, assuming something unforeseen does not jump in my way.

My suspicion is that you are in western TN and far enough west to be in my donut hole or on the edge of it.  the map of pskreporter shows the stations that hear me strongly start at about 400 miles radially from my vertical and extend out to British Columbia when my wattage is less than 30Watts to operate inside this hole I have to go to 80M which has been a real victum of the noise gremlins,  When 80M opens later this year we should be able to connect if that is the culprit.  I have almost no Arkansas contacts below 80M. but MS AL GA,FL are fine.  Just saying

KD0FIP;

 

Somehow we have GOT to get connected. I am hearing stations beyond you, in front of you, but for some reason Kansas seems to be a complete dead spot to me.

 

I may have heard you thus why I was having a problem decoding Byron for a bit, once the band settled I was finally able to grab him.

 

Next hour will be tough and I will CQ in the exact same spot I was with Byron if you are there to try. I really want to get you in the log, for your persistence in trying as helping you out (hopefully) for something you are working towards.

 

Hopefully in 15 minutes, we can get this connected!!

WoW, trying so hard to help you and help me too, I need the 11am slot :) hehehe, I see CO6CG and WB4MNK talking to you right now on 40m but it's a one sided conversation...  Will keep trying for a bit.

Arkansas… I think NO ONE lives there that has Amateur radio… I have not seen an AR station in months, then when I finally do actually work one, even though they say the confirm eQSL/LoTW et al, none ever come through…

 

I am having difficult time getting into KS most days but occasionally I get a few out of there. It is not a total loss there.

My suspicion is that you are in western TN and far enough west to be in my donut hole or on the edge of it.  the map of pskreporter shows the stations that hear me strongly start at about 400 miles radially from my vertical and extend out to British Columbia when my wattage is less than 30Watts to operate inside this hole I have to go to 80M which has been a real victum of the noise gremlins,  When 80M opens later this year we should be able to connect if that is the culprit.  I have almost no Arkansas contacts below 80M. but MS AL GA,FL are fine.  Just saying

KD0FIP;

 

Somehow we have GOT to get connected. I am hearing stations beyond you, in front of you, but for some reason Kansas seems to be a complete dead spot to me.

 

I may have heard you thus why I was having a problem decoding Byron for a bit, once the band settled I was finally able to grab him.

 

Next hour will be tough and I will CQ in the exact same spot I was with Byron if you are there to try. I really want to get you in the log, for your persistence in trying as helping you out (hopefully) for something you are working towards.

 

Hopefully in 15 minutes, we can get this connected!!

Re: moving up the list

Rick - N7WE
 

Back in September of 2014 I looked at PODXS-070 members by state.  AR had 15 members. 

We have members in every state.  But the states with the fewest members were:
Vermont - 2
RI and D of C - 3
AL, DE, ND, and WY - 4

We've a lot of new members since then, so thing may have changed.
