Oh my!  The Red Green Show!  Brings back memories of hilarious evenings in northern NY watching TV while is snowed a ton outside!  One of the funniest shows ever.  If you don't know of it, it is worth a google and some time watching clips on YouTube.

Hey Steve,

Was it delivered by a Mountie?  If it was then I think that you owe him a Molson, eh?
I have several friends down here that are French Canadian (yes they are here in CT. the eastern half) and we have loads of fun with our common language.
One of our favorite shows was the Red/Green show.  Hilarious!

Hope you have a good day, eh?

Then comes K9DWR – David – of Plainfield IL He needs just 2 days in
November. His Magic Day will be November 25. David has also completed Leap
Day and 24/7 so completing his 365 will automatically qualify him for the
Clock and Calendar Endorsement.
Looking forward to it. Almost blew it yesterday *whew*

November 365 – Finish Line in Sight!

Rick - N7WE
 

Happy Halloween!  Tonight at 0000 UTC (8PM EDT, 5PM PDT) November begins.  This month 3 more members will have the 365 Finish Line in sight.  The week of Thanksgiving will be a big week for these three!


First up will be both K7PAX – Paula – of Port Angeles WA and N9VEL – Keith - of Temple GA.  Paula only needs 1 day and Keith needs 7 days.  But both have a Magic Day of November 19. 


Paula has already completed Leap Day and 24/7, so completing her 365 will automatically qualify her for the Clock and Calendar Endorsement as well.  Keith has completed Leap Day, but will still need 24/7 for his Clock and Calendar.


Then comes K9DWR – David – of Plainfield IL   He needs just 2 days in November.  His Magic Day will be November 25.  David has also completed Leap Day and 24/7 so completing his 365 will automatically qualify him for the Clock and Calendar Endorsement.


For these 3 it has been a long, long road.  If you see them calling, give them a reply and help them achieve this difficult, yet rewarding, endorsement.  


Happy Thanksgiving and Good Luck to each of you.  May Old Sol and the Propagation Genies be kind to you!

Steve-o! Glad to hear the mail call finally made it up your way. Those Rollo tags ended up right nicely, didn't they? BTW - any TOP DAWG this year (and forward) receives a Rollo Dog Tag.... that's what we're talking about.

Please forgive the poor picture, but here's the tag we're discussing.



Thanks for "thanks" as well, buddy - it belongs to each and every one of our staff members, without whom this club would be unmanageable. 

Thanks to you all!

I got 38 cards recently, for my KK4CPS call, several of which were from 2013.

The receipt of the envelope prompted me to send a dozen envelopes to the bureau for my AK4MK call as well.  I don't think it's worthwhile to send any for my 6-wk held KW4VY call...

Bureau cards are fun - it's a surprise when you get the envelope, and several surprises when you open it!

Milt you really brought back the memories. I also won a few awards for Alabama section back in the 80`s when bands were so much better than now and oh was that fun getting on the air in contest weekends I use to operate a lot of them and it is great experience and great way to fill in your DXCC. Thanks for sharing Milt hope the younger guys will give it a go.

Subject: [070] QSLs from Bureau

 

 


Got a nice stack of 32 QSLs from ARRL bureau this morning.  Went through and found 2 new band/countries for Challenge which puts me at 1414.  The usual bunch if DL/I/9A/G etc. but some needed answering... those who didn't check PSE or TNX   of gave no indication of a card wanted got nada ! (Hey, it's on my QRZ page !)

 

If you work DX on PSK or any other modes, you *need* to have envelopes on file with current name, call sign and address.  Last year I sent them a dozen envelopes with a "Forever" stamp on each envelope. Some bureaus will toss cards after a year and some will hang onto them.  After 16 years I retired from the ARRL Incoming Bureau... just old & tired .

 

Fun going through cards... one was funny and had a radio with "split" marked on both receivers and a " Mr. Potato Head"  figure in front of radio except it was a Banana   !    If you don't get puns, you probably won't get it .

 

Settling back for a weekend full of PSK31 QSOs ... I hope !

HA! My stack is bigger than yours.... *GRIN*

I got 38 cards recently, for my KK4CPS call, several of which were from 2013.

The receipt of the envelope prompted me to send a dozen envelopes to the bureau for my AK4MK call as well.  I don't think it's worthwhile to send any for my 6-wk held KW4VY call...

Bureau cards are fun - it's a surprise when you get the envelope, and several surprises when you open it!

Be good, y'all.

Yes Jim, it does seem like a struggle at times!  But you are closer than you think.  You have already logged 1921 of the total 2246 required to do the whole thing.  You only need 13 As, 13 Is, and 8 Ns to complete Asia.  That will only leave United States and Africa to complete.  And you have made a big dent in both those.  Only 121 left out of 411 for United States an 170 left out of 441 for Africa.  

I run HRD software.  One tip that someone, can't remember who, passed on to me was to use SuperSweeper and then search and pounce.  SuperSweeper will show up to 60 decodes simultaneous.  I'm sure other software has similar multi-decode capability.  That sure made it a lot easier to watch the calls for that needed letter and then jump on them!

Keep on keepin' on!  You are very close!

Here are the 6 members who are nearing completion of the last sequential endorsement (Africa) and completion of the entire series:
 
F1IWH – Dan – who needs 8 more Ns.
W9SMR – Stan – who needs 6-Is, and 8-Ns.
OM7OM – Milan - who needs 17-Ns.
AK4MK - Matt - who needs 5-Is, 9-Ns, and 4-Os.
W7PAQ – Frank – who needs 13-As, 20-Is, 29-Ns, and 2-Os.
KT4NM – John – who needs 6-As, 21-Es, 26-Is, 12-Ns, 30-Os, and 7-Rs.
 
This will be a monumental personal accomplishment for them – in every case representing several years of work.  Cheer them on to the finish while you work on your own progress.  Good luck to you all!

I am struggling, I think all I need is vowels, and a bunch of them. Maybe a N but not sure have not looked in awhile.
