Rick -

I'd love to work you from DN38. Don't need DN28 (though I'm looking for you), but DN38 would be a new one for me. Unfortunately I'm likely to be at work the whole time you're on the air, unless you are still on at 2200z.

We made Hungry Horse, just outside Glacier.  I will be on 20m shortly from DN28.

Tomorrow afternoon, 6Jul16 I will try to activate Glacier NP NP21 from the west side - DN28 - Flathead County - probably about 21:00 UTC until the battery in the laptop dies.  Actual time to begin operating will depend on travel. 

The following morning 7Jul16 I will again try to activate Glacier NP NP21, but this time from the summit of the Going to the Sun Road - DN38 - Glacier County.  I anticipate being on much earlier...perhaps by 14:00 UTC, but that will depend on travel and traffic.  (No Passing on the Going to the Sun Road - hi hi!)  I'm hoping prop to the east will be much better from that location.

I will be calling CQ using N7WE/P.  In addition to the ARRL designator of NP21 I will give my actual grid square.  Hope to work you one time or the other or both!

Got it to upload by filtering out only those that are relevant… is a 070 number required to be in a field somewhere? I thought any/all psk contacts were valid for this…

 

If any/all are valid than I got credit for nothing. Help?

Thanks John, I kept seeing, when I could see anything on 20, stations calling GB, but I have yet to see that station.  I'll check that link and try to find him.

I've had a little luck on 20 meter the past couple of days.  I did get three 13 Colonies and just got WM3PEN a bonus station.  When things work they work, when not, I don't see anyone.  HI HI.

Folks looking for some rarer DX might want to give 20 meters a try.  Right now on 20 meter PSK31, solid copy but weak.  CE0YHO Easter Island, 4J3J Azerbaijan, YT1TM Serbia, all are working USA stations.  Also there is at least one HK station in there if you're working on the Columbia 2016 Award.


Happy Radio!

Well, I may be out of commission for a few days. We had a hellacious
storm move through this morning, and my wire antenna is on the ground.
The winds were unbelievable, looking out of my garage, the trees looked
like the wind was blowing in circles, and, extremely strong. We had
anchored the antenna in my neighbors tree, and half of it is on the
ground in my front yard.

Have a vertical that has been up since 1999, may or may not get it to
load, if it won't load am OTA until my grandson can get over here and
re-hang the wire.

Wide signal

Jerry N9AVY
 

FWIW

Monitored a VP5 station this morning get a report from an East Coast station that he had a wide signal and was all over the band.  I saw no evidence of that here in Illinois  with 3 element yagi aimed at the VP5 station.  Sometimes it's just propagation and not a bad signal.  Am wondering if , perhaps, the East Coast station was getting a strong signal  which was overloading his AGC and thus seeing what appeared to be a "wide" signal.  Turning off AGC  and inserting some attenuation would have made that "wide" signal disappear.

After the QSO/bad report the VP5 went away.

Be careful when giving out "wide signal" reports. It might be best just to give a 599 report and move on...

N7WE/P update

Rick - N7WE
 

We've been on the road now a little over 3 months.  So far I have operated (PSK31 only)  from 10 states, 36 different grids, and activated 5 National Parks for NPOTA.  Tomorrow we will head toward Glacier National Park with hopes of activating it sometime this week.  There will be new Montana grid squares coming as well.

I'm generally on for a while each evening (365+1 you know!) somewhere between 00:00 and 03:00 UTC and usually try 20m first and then go to 40m if the band closes.  I greatly appreciate every answer to my calls.  Sometimes we don't have internet or cell phone access out here in the Rockies, so spots or posts to this group are greatly appreciated!

I QSL each contact via LoTW, eQSL (AG), and QRZ.  Sometimes it take a few days if we don't have internet at a particular campsite.

Hope to work you soon!  73,

Rick - N7WE - 070 #1602
