The issue is that you operated for more than six hours--you started
at 2000z and ended at 0411z. That's over eight hours. You need to
pick the best six-contiguous hours. You can either do the analysis
yourself, or let the checker decide for you. Just upload multiple
times selecting different start times: 2000z, 2200z, and 2300z.
(Since you had no QSOs during the 2100z hour, that wouldn't be a good
starting time.) Then do one final upload with the version that scores
the best.

My guess (without doing the math) is that 2200z will be best. You
only have one QSO during the 0400z hour, so that's not likely to be
worth more than the QSOs you will lose for skipping the 2200z hour.
And you only had five QSOs in the 2000z hour--starting at 2000z means
you lose the 11 QSOs during the 0300z hour. The "catch" might be the
multipliers, as I didn't look at that.

I once sent in a log for 50 QSO's in the arrl dx fone contest..I was just searching for all time new ones but I could send in a log with just a click of the mouse in the logging program. Turns out I was the only QRP fone entry in the Central Division..That plaque sure looks nice on the wall in the shack. those days are gone..now qrp fone entries have qso counts in the hundreds..sigh

The turning in of a log,

is a final thank you to the guys and gals that put so much
time into making them successful.It’s really all about:

 The issue is that you operated for
more than six hours--you started at 2000z and ended at
0411z. That's over eight hours. You need to pick the
best six-contiguous hours. You can either do the analysis
yourself, or let the checker decide for you. Just upload
multiple times selecting different start times: 2000z,
2200z, and 2300z. (Since you had no QSOs during the 2100z
hour, that wouldn't be a good starting time.) Then do
one final upload with the version that scores the
best.
 My
guess (without doing the math) is that 2200z will be best.
You only have one QSO during the 0400z hour, so that's
not likely to be worth more than the QSOs you will lose for
skipping the 2200z hour. And you only had five QSOs in the
2000z hour--starting at 2000z means you lose the 11 QSOs
during the 0300z hour. The "catch" might be the
multipliers, as I didn't look at
that.

The issue is that you operated for more than six hours--you started at 2000z and ended at 0411z. That's over eight hours. You need to pick the best six-contiguous hours. You can either do the analysis yourself, or let the checker decide for you. Just upload multiple times selecting different start times: 2000z, 2200z, and 2300z. (Since you had no QSOs during the 2100z hour, that wouldn't be a good starting time.) Then do one final upload with the version that scores the best.

My guess (without doing the math) is that 2200z will be best. You only have one QSO during the 0400z hour, so that's not likely to be worth more than the QSOs you will lose for skipping the 2200z hour. And you only had five QSOs in the 2000z hour--starting at 2000z means you lose the 11 QSOs during the 0300z hour. The "catch" might be the multipliers, as I didn't look at that.

Logs, Contests & Firecracker Sprint

 

The turning in of a log, regardless of your anticipated score, # of contacts, etc., is a final thank you to the guys and gals that put so much time into making them successful.
It’s really all about:

No log is too small.

Jon,

Turn it in for sure.

You just don't know how far you can move up the food chain when condx are less than optimal.

No worries, we have a week to upload the logs after all.

I seem to have been doing the math wrong in my head, thinking I only worked 6 hours.... My best score is based starting at 2200.

Again, many thanks!

The issue is that you operated for more than six hours--you started at 2000z and ended at 0411z. That's over eight hours. You need to pick the best six-contiguous hours. You can either do the analysis yourself, or let the checker decide for you. Just upload multiple times selecting different start times: 2000z, 2200z, and 2300z. (Since you had no QSOs during the 2100z hour, that wouldn't be a good starting time.) Then do one final upload with the version that scores the best.

My guess (without doing the math) is that 2200z will be best. You only have one QSO during the 0400z hour, so that's not likely to be worth more than the QSOs you will lose for skipping the 2200z hour. And you only had five QSOs in the 2000z hour--starting at 2000z means you lose the 11 QSOs during the 0300z hour. The "catch" might be the multipliers, as I didn't look at that.

Hi guys,

Anyone needing NC (K2J) for the 13 Colonies Event, any band, shoot me an email for sked.  Bands lousy right now, almost no activity except for 20 meter PSK.  Of course happy to work you any other mode also.
