Re: Couple of Questions

John Etling
 

Confirmation for your 24/7 does not hinge on eQSL or LoTW confirmations. It also does not hinge on the need to have another contact also be a PODXS070 member. The only requirement is the START time (or TIME ON) of the QSO begins within whatever hour is needed and it MUST be a PSK31 contact. No other PSK mode is acceptable.

Based on what you claim below, upload your log to the checker, and you might be surprised what you have earned for endorsements, including the 24/7 endorsement you believe you have.

I also agree with your point that if more of the users confirmed with LoTW things would be easier to gain. LoTW takes a little time for registration, but it is free and cost nothing to use at any time. The only way to get ARRL awards is by using LoTW or paying to have all your QSL cards checked and counted. It surprises me more US citizens, especially, do not use LoTW.

… I’m just sayin’

Are new Members still required to submit 50 Contacts
before they become Members of PODXS?
When you check your standings with the Log Checker do you have to have
1) Time ON
2) Time OFF
Confirmation by either LoTW or EQSL

As a side note; I had 175 Contacts in this year's 3 Day Weekend
and I am still waiting for about 50+ Confirmations (I use an app called RXCLUS that lets me know who is registered as an LoTW user) If all of these 50+ and other PSK31 Contacts were Confirmed then I would have my 24/7 almost completed. If some Members are using LoTW please can you make an upload to LoTW not so much to help me but other LoTW users as well.  I use ACLog and after I clean it up again; for those that don't have LoTW I will be sending out QSL Cards with a SAE
Thanks in Advance

Thanks to NU4C for the 0700Z hour. I tried working W0NEO in AR around 0818Z and copy was pretty rough. I managed to get him okay but was not sure if he copied me so I kept the info but did not log him as I wasn’t sure whether he copied me and/or logged the contact. So, I thought, oh my I hope there is someone else out there. I called, and called, and called. I was just about ready to pull the switch and lo and behold I got a strong signal calling me from FL, N7WE, Rick at about 0844Z!!! He was also looking for the 0800Z hour. He had just got up to check the radio. Boy, another few seconds or so and we would have missed each other.

As it turns out, I got an email this morning from W0NEO and he did copy and logged the contact so I had that hour anyway but was just not sure. 

thanks to all for the contacts. We’ll just keep pluggin away!!
