Some guys are just real stinkers and never QSL.

Or, you could have my issue with a Hawaii Station, which I just cant figure out.

I need Hawaii on 10/12 and 40 PSK31 to help finish WAS on those 3. Ive worked a certain
Hawaii station on all 3. He states He does not have Internet for LOTW any more (he used
to use LOTW)

But yet, I get EQSLs from his instantly.

Go figure

.....ALAN, FWIW, your signal on 20M is quite strong into the east coast around 2200z-2300z.  That will change by one hour when DST kicks in...and likely to continue to change as the daylight lasts longer.

Len,

Thanks for the offer. I may take you up on it. I still have the other two to find yet. My success with skeds has been limited due to conditions and my weird schedule. It does seem funny that ND and WY are so difficult to find. I see a lot of people looking for ND. Rare DX. :)

Thanks again,

Alan WL7CG

Milt,

Not only do I remember po box 88 (love es kisses), I also remember no Sputnik. Today ... more than 40,600 things es stuff on orbit.  
For example, NORAD #40654, amateur PSAT NO-84, PSK-31 up on 28120 (there is a limit on max power up) and down on 435.35 FM...TNX Bob WB4APR es team.

QSLing/hr is paper only / no SASE required / QRP
I still keep an envelope at the 'buro' :>》

TNX Milt for the flashback, goes to show you, all that stuff stuck in grey matter just takes the right trigger to pull it forward HI HI

Hey Milt,

Have any idea how many aerogrammes I sent to PO Box 88 Moscow in the 60's?
No one can count that high.
It was probably Putin's mailbox at the Kremlin.

Re: A little help from my friends

N9JCA Chris Matthews <n9jca.chris@...>
 

There are people who say they USE LOTW with the PODXS Group
but DON'T
They don't seem to care in Instant Gratification or upload an .adif file to LOTW or EQSL

I have at least 150 PSK31 Contacts from 2007 - 2015 still to be confirmed with other Members using LOTW
so without these confirmations I can't fill out my Endorsements. If I don't have
the Confirmation then it's not fair to others to include them in my .adif file

Last year I was one of the Bonus Stations in the TDW Contest I gave out 175 Bonuses
of which 15% have confirmed so far (YES I know about the EQSL users)

Go Figure

Grid Squares...

W7RIV
 

I would like to thank all of you, in less than a weeks time looking how close I was to LONP and to some Grids and how well my 24/7 has been going along....I think I'm addicted....

Because of that...I'm wondering if there is anyone in the following State - Grid....

VT - FN34
NH - FN45
PA - EN90
TN - EM66

If you are, please email me directly. I do not want to harass the group. I am UT - DN30. I'm also working on my mobile and portable setup and would hope to fill some other UT grids this spring/summer.

Thanks,
Bryon

I got lucky this time ... I work from home but force myself to be away from the radio room so that I can get work done. I was stuck on a lengthy conference call and did some quick multitasking.  I snagged Canary Island and the Azores .. a new band entity and a ATNO for me
Been a really good 2 weeks for me on digital modes .. I got Samoa, Wallis and Futuna, Micronesia and the Azores.   Now maybe one day I can snag a contact with the UK.

Alan,
Sure wish I could see you lurking over here in CT.  I know that you have it already but all
I need is Alaska and I qualify for:  1) Alaska Endorsement - PODXS
                                                      2) WALC - PODXS
                                                      3) WAS - ARRL
Sure glad to know that you are really active on PSK so it will only be a matter of a prop shift and I could be in the money.
