No, no.  If you want to work across the equater, you turn it upside down.  If you want to work the opposite hemisphere, you turn it sideways.

Barry,

I asked him.  I had made several contacts there in the weeks before including him (VK3BM).  The mornings we talked with his beam oriented toward Europe and I also was able to work Reunion Island at the same time. Later on he said that he swung it around and came across the Pacific. I googled his QTH and immediately understood why we had the QSO.  The beam antenna on his tower was bigger than his house.

I was curious as to why I got him both times that is why I asked.   I did the same thing with a station near Adeleide too.

When the prop is in, it is in even for qrp stations.  Sure do miss those days though.  Haven't had contact with the Aussie's in quite a while now.

Jerry I tried to rotate the vertical but nothing changed???????  Maybe I should mount it upside down but then I would have to operate prq. Ya had to go there didn't ya.

When using a vertical how do you determine if your contact is long path or short path.

Interfered with

Dan Morris - KZ3T
 

Well, this is the first time this has happened to me by an 070 member!!!

I was trying to work a 3 land station and all of a sudden a NJ station came
on and just started calling CQ CQ DX CQ DX. I tried to let him know he was
on top of another ongoing QSO but I think there was a DX station calling him.

After he finished, he started just transmitting a steady carrier. Wow, I could
not believe it. I finally just moved naturally as nothing I could do and he was very
strong here in NC. Like I said, first time for an 070 member.

Oh well, maybe he could not here me but I wonder especially since the steady carrier
followed after I continued to try and make my QSO to no avail.

No, no.  If you want to work across the equater, you turn it upside down.  If you want to work the opposite hemisphere, you turn it sideways.

Barry,

I asked him.  I had made several contacts there in the weeks before including him (VK3BM).  The mornings we talked with his beam oriented toward Europe and I also was able to work Reunion Island at the same time. Later on he said that he swung it around and came across the Pacific. I googled his QTH and immediately understood why we had the QSO.  The beam antenna on his tower was bigger than his house.

I was curious as to why I got him both times that is why I asked.   I did the same thing with a station near Adeleide too.

When the prop is in, it is in even for qrp stations.  Sure do miss those days though.  Haven't had contact with the Aussie's in quite a while now.

Jerry I tried to rotate the vertical but nothing changed???????  Maybe I should mount it upside down but then I would have to operate prq. Ya had to go there didn't ya.

When using a vertical how do you determine if your contact is long path or short path.

Re: PODXS Net???

Well, no body really needs Net Logger except for the Net Control Stations.  I believe the initial setup is what might take quite a while as someone would have to try and get most of the regulars in somewhat of a database, so when that person checks in, all his information will pop up on the Logger.  Now, those that download the Logger and use it, you will see everyone that has checked in and it is color coded as to whether they have checked out or who is up for making calls.  that way you know exactly where you stand and when your turn will be.   It really is a very neat little program.

I use it when I check in to the OMISS nets and sometimes there are up to 50 - 70 checkins on any one net!!!   Needless to say those nets can run for several hours!!!

I was starting a QSO with Steve, W1HS, when someone started calling CQ right on top of us.  My signal report to Steve could have been interpreted as being rude (59 when not being walked on).  If you were the KC8 station, I apologize.  With the bands the way they are, you most likely didn't see us, and we didn't see you until BAM, the band was open.
