Weird Eqsl stuff

Jerry N9AVY
 


Just had a number of contacts show up as new, but when I went to confirm them, Eqsl showed them as already confirmed.  ???
 
I never initiate Eqsls, but only confirm what is sent me.
 
Wonder if Eqsl is having problems ?  Anyone see this ?

Explain Something for Me

Bill Garwood
 

All of the recent posts about PSK31 operators sending stuff like and CQ CQ de .  Why do they not know what they are sending out over the air?


I started years ago with PSK31 using MixW software and have stuck with it as it does the job for me.  I always see on my monitor what I am sending whether using macros or when I'm typing.


I guess other software does not have this feature by default or similar?


If I understand why it happens, I may be able to occasionally assist them with getting up to speed.  As has been mentioned, some of these folks cannot be helped as they already know it all, but most are just trying a new mode or new software.


Then there are others who send their call as in brackets.  My software does not recognize that as a call sign so I have to cut and paste it or type it in to make a QSO with that station.  Why do some stations send their call in brackets?


Happy Radio!  73,

I have been following this thread from the beginning and still have no

read it. Maybe people should be forwarding these messages to him so he
sees the error of his ways. Seriously whenever I read about a wrong doing
over the air by a non-member on this list, I think to myself time might be
better spent dropping the offending operate a polite email explaining to
him how to become a better opeator

Re: Finally on

ljl2002@att.net
 

Steve W3HF,

I know that you were on 40m last night because I could see the hams talking to you but nada on your end from here.
That is unusual because 40m usually works well locally most of the time.
There's just no accounting for what is going on up there. I get Canadian special event stations in Ontario no problem but then see stations coming in from CA and end up working a station in the Czech Rep. with a 599. I've been on 40m more lately because 20m has been really bad here too.
Good thing I repaired the 40m radio when I did or I would be pretty high and dry here. ( That's "beached" for all you Navy guys) 

Hangin out on 40m.

"RT-M" assumes one can read and understand.  Not a safe assumption any more.  "Plug and Play" was an attempt to make things idiot proof.  All it did was make more idiots.  The Law of Unintended Consequences struck again!
