Need ONLY 17:00 UTC – 12:00 noon central than today is a success and
completed in full… exhausted so setting alarm to make it happen… then
back up by 2300 central this evening to get started again… This day
was tough as I had 7 slots but all were scattered over an 11 hour
period – making for a LOOOONG day. Hoping the noon hour here has some
sigs I can knock one out at top of hour so I can literally pass out on
the floor or against the wall or partially in/out of a room or
wherever as at this point in time I don‘t really care…
Ready to try 17:00 on 20m

Lousy propagation forecasted and observed.
 
Our first 2 hours today netted 2 QSO's on 40m and 5 on 20m.
 
To add misery to the day, it is starting to rain and is forecasted to continue all day. Teardown will be a real joy!!
 
Look for us. We are trying.

Joe -

 

Always glad to dig out the weak signals. It also helps to be able to recognize callsign fragments, and you are the only PPV that I know.

 

As for LONP points, I did okay. Got a few, missed a few. (It's frustrating to see a callsign you need somewhere else on the waterfall, and they're gone before you can get there. I guess it's the same phenomenon as Jerry's post about new grid squares.) This trip's "missed" total was 4.

 

And the pileup issue? I can't explain that. I've been here in Denver often enough that it seems routine, but I guess there are enough members out there that it's a new location for someone.

 

Thanks to all you guys (and ladies--Mary KC4TIE got me this trip) for making this fun.

Joe -

Always glad to dig out the weak signals. It also helps to be able to recognize callsign fragments, and you are the only PPV that I know.

As for LONP points, I did okay. Got a few, missed a few. (It's frustrating to see a callsign you need somewhere else on the waterfall, and they're gone before you can get there. I guess it's the same phenomenon as Jerry's post about new grid squares.) This trip's "missed" total was 4.

And the pileup issue? I can't explain that. I've been here in Denver often enough that it seems routine, but I guess there are enough members out there that it's a new location for someone.

Thanks to all you guys (and ladies--Mary KC4TIE got me this trip) for making this fun.

Steve,
I saw you say QRL? and I thought that it was our cue.  Thanks for the Q and for digging my QRP sig out of the noise once again.  Sorry I couldn't add to the LONP pile.

You are the only guy I know that can create a pileup out of Denver Colorado. LOL!

I don't count as an APE, but I'm here in Denver for one more evening if someone is chasing WITWIS. Greg WA3GM mentioned me on the reflector, and a few members found me randomly on the air last night. (The pileup was fun, even if it only lasted for four QSOs!)
 
I hope to be on the air in a few hours, once my work day is finished, so if you need W3HF/0 tonight may be an opportunity. It's also a good chance for some east coast members to find me at skip range, instead of being too close for 20m evening operation. And because of that, I'd love to find some new LONP points that are accessible from here that are tough from home in eastern PA.
 
I know the club station has antennas for 20 and 40, but I haven't found any WARC band antennas. If someone wants a sked, please feel free to text me at 610-308-0654. I don't have email capability from the station, and I won't be able to even send/receive texts until I leave work. But if you want/need a contact with me, either for LONP or WITWIS, let me know.

Hey Jerry,
It really works.  All ye of little faith.
The XYL bought some Baa-nan-naahs and I got two APES on the same day.  They just happened to be on either side of the same boat!  I got Stan on 40m and then got Bob on 20m both in the same grid.  Imagine that!
Lookin for more.

Hey, maybe future APE endorsement stickers should be in the shape of a banana ?
The Pacific nation of Tonga had a stamp in the shape of a banana years ago... I got it on a QSL card.
