Great Dave!  Keep after it!  You are 98.6338797% of the way there.  Looks like July 22 is your magic day.  I will definitely call if I see you.  A quick post here when you are on and what band will help.

I picked up one of my 6 remaining days this morning so only 5 more to go.  I haven't been on much lately but I have a calendar marked with my needed days and always make sure I try for those days.

If you see me on, give me a call.

Re: 070 Club Upcoming Sticker/Endorsement Mailing

Whoa Barry!  That's a shocker.  Endorsements do get tougher to get the more you get, but I have to think something screwy is going on.  For example, I looked at your upload from Monday and it reports 16,040 QSOs, but not one credit towards any of the 2246 required letters for WTW.  Something is wrong. I'm sure David will be on it as soon as he has a minute.  Twins you know!

Hi All Fellow PSKers

To LOTW and EQSL so all of us can try and receive the endorsements we are missing

As Barry mentioned he has made 1135 Contacts this year and nothing new to add to his

list  I know he only uses EQSL Surely there are a few of you who can help out with an upload

I have 1480 Contacts Listed with LOTW and need 500 Confirmed for PSK31 of which 50 Confirmations

will give me Worked ALL Bands and ALL States on 40 Meters

Please Help each other out Make the Upload you'll be glad you Did

Hi,
I did WSPR all Es season last year.
It pretty much confirmed what results was being reflected from WSPR were fairly close to what I saw for many years with PropNET.
WSPR is a great system for real time reporting, but for data mining it absolutely sucks.
Dave Donnelly KF6XA, wrote routines to take captures and partials (under very narrow guidelines and rules) from PropNET participants and put the data into a spreadsheet format with calls, Grids, distance, azimuth, and captures by UTC hour from all PropNET reporters (was called Catch Report).
I am a Math Nerd, Degreed, worked in Banking for 30 years and retired as a Math educator. I  can take well organized data from PropNET, mine it, and analyze it under Statistical rules and laws in hours.  It takes too long for WSPR. 
After one year, I had no choice but return to PropNET if I wanted to exercise my brain in retirement :)
I have been doing it for too long... hi hi (since 2005).
Putting all this together, I have discovered that Es conditions year to year actually change exponentially and through time follow polynomial trend-lines as things do in Nature.
Anyhow, when I say activity has tripled this year.... you can bank on it.
But I have been wrong before... it just won't cost you money.

Matt

I also followed your lead and closed the quarter on my log and uploaded it. Using VB7150
this year and so far 1135 PSK contacts.

I was shocked to see no new endorsements earned.

Guess I have to spend more hours in the chair till year end.

Will try to give a summary on QSL exchange for that period for those that are interested.

all the best 
Barry

That means that you'll want to go ahead and submit your ENTIRE PSK-31 logs to the automatic checker before the end of the month, and submit ALL of your awards for processing/approval. 

If you have multiple calls associated with your 070 member number, remember to combine all of your PSK-31 records for ALL CALLS into one ADI file and submit it using your current call sign.  If you've recently changed call signs and haven't notified us, please do so soon so that you can credit for all of your hard work!

Re: 10 Meter Es this Es Season

Can't argue with the numbers and I'm hearing some fantastic reports of DX on 6m...but.....  I have to wonder how the new WSJT-X modes figure into these stats.  

Joe released Ver 1.7.0 just about the first of the year and it includes MSK144, JT65B-C, and JT9B-H and things have just gone crazy.  Most of what I'm seeing on 6m is one of these new variations.  I'm not seeing much of anything PSK.  In fact, 50.290 where I used to see PSK is now virtually all WSJT modes.  The thing about the new modes is the fast exchange - you can run JT9E clear down to 5 second TX!  Old JT65A required 48 second TX. That makes the new modes ideal for Es.  Joe and group have reported they are working on fast turn versions that will allow customized exchange (rather than the spec'd pro forma) making them suitable for contesting.  My guess is that PSK doesn't have a future on 6m.

Looking at the David's Progress Checker, there are several more people getting very close to completing the 365+1 Endorsement!  
 
WA3WZR - 1, W1IPS - 2, NU4C - 3, N1KRC - 3, KI3F - 3, W9SMR - 4, ON2AD - 5, K9DWR - 6, W7JSD - 6, AK7DB - 6, VA7GEM - 8, KE4JB - 11, K5SP - 14, and K7PAX - 16.  Dennis KI3F and David AK7DB can potentially complete in July! 
 
Here's a list of dates for the rest of June and all of July, and who needs them.
 
June 23 - AK7DB David

If you see them calling, help them out!  It takes a lot of determination, effort, and good old "stick to it-ness" to complete 365+1.  So far only 14 of our 2548 members have achieved it.  Two more possibles for July!

Endorsements : Alaska & Hawaii

Jerry N9AVY
 


Careful when applying for these; especially if your log has auto-fill.  (That is,  if it sees a KL7 of KH6 call , it automatically fills in Alaska or Hawaii. )
 
 
There are many KL7 & KH6  call that are stateside  (For example:   AL7MH is in Arizona.  I've worked him and he sends AZ in his macro. )   
 
So, don't always believe what log tells you. 
 
Thanks.
