Hi Dan and all,
I need Alabama, Delaware, Maine, Michigan, and Vermont on LOTW.
I am also trying to get Triple Play as well. Stuck at 45 on Phone and CW (a mixture of states) too.
I have a good chance with Alabama, a.PropNET participant. I don't have a clue why I haven't worked Michigan yet.

This would work great if all members were on the reflector.  We have over 2550 members and I estimate about 1/3 are on the group. Of those some only get a daily digest.

Perhaps the best way to set up a PSK31 sked is through the 070 reflector. Although there are active PSK31 operators who are not part of the club, most dedicated PSK operators are associated.

If you indicate which states you are missing for WAS, 070 members in those states will probably be glad to help you complete your quest. Of course, with propagation being what is has been lately, some states might be difficult.

If your email on QRZ is still good, other members should be able to reach you to set up a sked.

Hi all,

Since retiring and moving out here to Monsoonland, I am now 5 states short for WAS on Digital.
Is there a Schedule Page you guys use?
I had used the K3UK Sked Page for SKCC CW and it had sections for other modes or purposes, but its replacement N8FQ SKED Page has little to no activity.
Wondering. Thanks in advance.

Yep, that was me.  It's my middle name and I was testing it to see who was paying attention. 
 
Still have QSOs when I operated a 10m QSO Party  from MN  a few years back.  Signed as N9AVY/0 and people having been asking ever since "when did you move back to Illinois ?"  ..    Like I said earlier, people don't pay attention.

I tried that for weeks on end and finally concluded that QRZ does a database update from industry canada quite frequently so no matter what I change it to within a couple days it is back to what the govmnt has on record.

Re: Using First Names, OM, YL, etc

Mike Besemer <mwbesemer@...>
 

Along with that goes not listening. 

 

I just saw two U.S. stations calling CQDX – and directly between them was an EA station calling CQ and booming in.

 

But that’s ok… I worked the EA on the first call.  (Not that I needed him, but it’s nice to see that a low 160 meter inverted L works ok on 20 meters!)

Being named Paula, when there is any QSB I often get called Paul, since most expect a male on the radio. So in my initial introductory macro, I say

“Name is Paula Paula (YL)” so hopefully that helps. But some don’t even read what I send, and still come back with Paul. But at least my friends know who I am!

Wow !   Didn't expect to get whole lot of answers from my little question.  Thanks everyone !!!

 

So, it looks as though QRZ and other call sign downloading programs are to blame for the impersonal/rudeness of many stations sending first and last names in the exchange.  Also, those who write the software  like HRD/DM780 and perhaps others.  Also, the operators who use HRD and do not know that it's changeable in the menu.  I know I have downloaded that feature with N3FJP, but it doesn't do that over the air because all my logging is do ne on MixW. 

 

In order to change QRZ name, you have to go to FCC or Industry Canada and make required changed on their sites because QRZ and others download their info from those sites.  That how I made my change from Jerald  to Jerry (my Mother only called my Jerald when she was mad at me !).

 

This is probably another  thing that should be covered in the FAQ/manual on the 070 home page,

 

I have MixW configured so that when I work someone again, their name, QTH and date of last QSO comes up. Hope  it makes them feel more at ease.  If it was for software doing that, I'd be lost with over 13,000  digital contacts in the log !

 

Had a business phone the other day from a "Sean or Shawn" and I was asked a question to which I answered politely "yes sir" and the answer came back  that Shawn was a woman.  She had a deeper voice than most women , I profusely apologized ! 

 

When working some DX, because of the name given and the simple fact there's no voice to go on, we just have to guess.  Which is why I try to avo id using  OM/YL.

 

Maybe when some replies with my full name , I should substitute "Dear Sir or Madam " ,  hi !  hi ! (telegraphic laugh like LOL)

In order to change QRZ name, you have to go to FCC or Industry Canada and make required changed on their sites because QRZ and others download their info from those sites.  That how I made my change from Jerald  to Jerry (my Mother only called my Jerald when she was mad at me !).

 

This is probably another  thing that should be covered in the FAQ/manual on the 070 home page,

 

I have MixW configured so that when I work someone again, their name, QTH and date of last QSO comes up. Hope  it makes them feel more at ease.  If it was for software doing that, I'd be lost with over 13,000  digital contacts in the log !

 

Had a business phone the other day from a "Sean or Shawn" and I was asked a question to which I answered politely "yes sir" and the answer came back  that Shawn was a woman.  She had a deeper voice than most women , I profusely apologized ! 

 

When working some DX, because of the name given and the simple fact there's no voice to go on, we just have to guess.  Which is why I try to avo id using  OM/YL.

 

Maybe when some replies with my full name , I should substitute "Dear Sir or Madam " ,  hi !  hi ! (telegraphic laugh like LOL)

Lately I've been working a lot of station  who when answering a call, send both my first and last names ?   What's up with this ???   It seems to not be in the Amateur Radio tradition of just sending one's first name.  Seems to me kind of like junk mail and very impersonal.  

 

Just curious...

Perhaps the best way to set up a PSK31 sked is through the 070 reflector. Although there are active PSK31 operators who are not part of the club, most dedicated PSK operators are associated.

If you indicate which states you are missing for WAS, 070 members in those states will probably be glad to help you complete your quest. Of course, with propagation being what is has been lately, some states might be difficult.

If your email on QRZ is still good, other members should be able to reach you to set up a sked.

Hi all,

Since retiring and moving out here to Monsoonland, I am now 5 states short for WAS on Digital.
Is there a Schedule Page you guys use?
I had used the K3UK Sked Page for SKCC CW and it had sections for other modes or purposes, but its replacement N8FQ SKED Page has little to no activity.
Wondering. Thanks in advance.

Loving all the hints

The sad truth is, that half of the information on QRZ is wrong and needs to be changed manually and most do not know that.  Grid square info is wrong 99% of the time, they had me two sections away from my actual location. 

I am still new to digital modes and in just about a week or so have learned a lot from reading all the posts.  I did however, change my macros the very first time I used it on DM780 and saw it put the whole name in, I felt it was so impersonal.  I have a Premium account with QRZ so any call I click on gets automatically looked up, I try to remember to change the names but sometimes I get a brain cramp and forget.  I get it a lot too though, I have gone by Chris my entire life but get macro'd as Christopher it does not bother me though.


I also agree that a lot of the information that gets talked about on this list would benefit the entire community and set an example for newbies like me.  I only found out about the group during a rag chew session with Matt #2552 as I was #48 of his #50 required contacts, once our QSO was auto-logged I saw that he was #57 for me so I applied right away.  I want to learn more and this list is a great place for it, but I believe that if the information that is brought up here would benefit all of us in the long run if it were made public.  I would even be willing to put up a page if some of you more experienced would assist with your knowledge, as I said I am new to the digital modes on HF.

Look up grid squares on QRZ.  Was looking one grid up and there were many who weren't even in the same state as the grid listed.  There are many errors of that type on QRZ.
 
I really think there are sloppy operators who are either lazy or uninformed... or maybe both.  Some just want to get on the air and maybe lots of contacts to get awards, but really care little about anything else.

I don't blame the web sites like QRZ. I like being able to pull up a QRZ listing during a QSO, either to figure out exactly where someone is, or identify the grid square, or just read a bio.

I put some of the blame on the software, specifically the default macros which seem to be chosen to highlight all the capabilities of the software (and not necessarily be good operating practice).

But the real blame is the operators who blindly accept the default macros, and don't think about whether they make sense. Maybe they don't know how to change the macros? Or don't realize how obnoxious they are? Or don't care? Regardless, it's the operators that actually key the transmitters that send these ridiculous drivel who are ultimately to blame.

Paula K7PAX #1739
 

Being named Paula, when there is any QSB I often get called Paul, since most expect a male on the radio. So in my initial introductory macro, I say

“Name is Paula Paula (YL)” so hopefully that helps. But some don’t even read what I send, and still come back with Paul. But at least my friends know who I am!
