Hi Everyone,
First of all my apologies for taking forever to finally join the PODXS 070 Club.  I should have done this a few years ago, but other Ham and personal activities kept me from joining. Now retired, I was playing l
ast weekend in the 1010X Digital Spring QSO Party.  I worked one 1010X member!!  I heard several other PSK31 stations and most were PODXS 070 members. I decided to get off my tail and apply.

I have been on PSK31 since the early-2000's and was a result of my VHF Weak-Signal digital activities (WSJT) and decided to put the HF Rig to good use. I played (handed out points) in a few TARA and 1010X events plus Field Day. I operate from 40 to 2 Meters, but you may know me or have heard of me by my PropNET escapades on 10 Meters. PropNET uses timed PSK31 formatted packets for real-time propagation reporting.

My favorite band has always been 10 Meters.  In 2005, I began what turned out to be a 7-Year study on 10-Meter Spring/Summer Sporadic Es propagation. In 7 years I collected, mined, compiled and analyzed 87,000 packets from almost 200 PropNET participants. The system provided a statistically sound method to identify what Spring/Summer Es do during a lull between 2 Solar Cycles. I have published these results for the Central States VHF Society Conference, and have presented this material at conferences, conventions, and Ham Radio clubs. If you are interested, a few of my studies, recaps and observations on propagation are available on my personal Blog:
http://ka5dwipropagation.blogspot.com/
Warning... some are a long long read.  I am a Math nerd.  Read my p! rofile on the Blog.

I am currently about 50-75% active on 10-Meter PropNET. When I am on, I have my system's Robot active . A number of others have theirs on as well.  You hear us, send our call twice DE your call twice within 200 Hz and our Robot will answer you with a QSO number and station information. It is a nice way to confirm you have propagation. On 10 Meters, we operate at 28,118.8 kHz +1500 Hz.

As mentioned, the Es Season has begun. There have been 3 nice openings and it is very early in the season. 6 and 10 Meters should be fun for the next 17 weeks.

I operate a 30-year old Yaesu FT-747GX for HF and a Yaesu FT-726R or 290R for VHF(6 or 2M) into a good old RIGblaster with one of two Dell Desktop computers.  When not on PropNET, I use Hamscope, DM780 and Digipan.  I also operate lots of CW and occasional RTTY. I also enjoy doing WSPR when I get frustrated with PropNET. You can hear my voice mostly on 2 & 6-Meter SSB.

I am hopeful that the XYL leaves me alone to watch Car Racing and operate in the Three Day Weekend event coming up. I hope to work many of you in the future.

You nailed it!  That's exactly what I do.
Sometimes it's better just to make the XYL happy and mow the lawn. (That will work for very crappy prop too!)
What's that our British friends say?  Keep calm and carry on.

   I agree with your assessment of different moods of the day.

If I am in a easy going mood that day then it is "The fun of Ham radio"
If I am not in a easy going mood that day then it I "The challenges of Ham radio"

Luckily for me I am having more fun than challenges but I do enjoy the challenges of the PODXS endorsements....hi hi .

Yes Joe, I hate it.  On days when I'm feeling forgiving and compassionate, I remind myself that propagation is not always reciprocal and tell myself "They probably couldn't see the other station calling on frequency."

On days when I'm not too understanding (most days) I tell myself "They probably saw a weak trace but couldn't decode the call.  They think if they call CQ right on the station's frequency that they will come back to them, or swing the beam, or up the power and they will bag a rare one."  Then my head goes through possible descriptors - newbie, OBB (operator behaving badly) and LID - being some of the nicer ones.

I usually hang on frequency for a while in hopes I will get another shot.  Most times I give up and spin the knob.  Then I tell myself the only person I can control is me and vow to never do what I just saw done. Deep breaths....and on to the next QSO.
