Beware ! There has been reported  there is a gang of antennas thieves around CT area who are stealing antennas in the middle of the night and are selling them on Ebay .
 
My late Uncle had a fix for broken wire antennas... he put an insulator in at every antenna break ... it looked like Xmas lights on his 80m dipole !

CQ is alive and well and I enjoy reading the paper version.

When condx are bad they are bad.

I've often wondered whether I have an antenna out there or not.  Sometimes I go out and look just to give myself peace of mind.

I'm sure that Red/Green would have used duct tape.  Fix yer antenna, eh?

Picked up a copy of CW every once in a while over the years, but it wasn't the same as it used to be. Construction articles were few and far between and editorial content was boring.

Now 73 was a great magazine and outshined both CQ and QST. HR was also a bit boring - no pictures, but some good articles.

Met Wayne Green, W2NSD/1, on a couple occasions ... once at Dayton and another time at local hamfest. Great guy ! He was far ahead of his time in ham radio and computing; also, a bit whacky at times, but I think that was a sign of genius. He was also a thorn in the side of ARRL, yet he was a member of ARRL all those years. If he could see what's going on with ARRL today, he'd probably have to print his editorials on flame-proof paper ! The beginning of the end was Wayne's divorce where his Ex got a lot his assets including Byte magazine and one might say she really took a Byte out of Wayne !

CQ during the past year has been in trouble financially with very late or missed issues. Think it started with December 2016 issue as many local DXers were complaining on about magazines not arriving for weeks, if at all. Sorry to see a once good publication fall upon hard times. But such is ham radio these days as more and more content is available online.

PODXS Group,

There is a very interesting article in the September issue of CQ that deals with the problem of one station not seeing the other.
It is : Is HF Propagation Reciprocal? by Thomas Hood NW7US. It explains why the RF doesn't always go both ways on the same path.

I guess what is good for the goose is not always good for the gander when dealing with HF.

Bill -

Now that you mention it, I do remember that issue. And I do agree that the wording isn't clear, but that's the way the official scorer works.

Unfortunately the web site has not been updated to reflect the correct interpretation, which was documented on the contest reflector

Hello,

There was some confusion by myself and others on this list last year about the scoring and operating hours in this contest.  Some of us made QSOs that did not count in the scoring.   It might be beneficial ahead of the contest to clarify how this works. 

For example, if you start at 0000 UTC on Saturday November 11, (which is Friday night local time here on the east coast) then your 6 hour block for calendar day November 11 is from the 0000 to 0559.  If you start back up Saturday evening around sunset local time, it is at 2200 UTC still on November 11, any contacts made before 2359 UTC will not count in the scoring as you have already completed your 6 hour block for the calendar day of November 11 UTC.  Any other QSOs are entered as a check log.  Same goes for November 12/ 13.  The problem with that is there are some DX and multipliers around local sunset that will likely get missed.  You could always start each day at 1800 and but that would miss any potential QSOs around sunset on Friday night.

The problem is the rules state: "Operate 6 hours each UTC night, starting at the time of your choosing on each night."  

I think night time here on the east coast would begin at sunset and not 0000 UTC.  What is a UTC night?

Maybe the rules should state operate up to 6 consecutive hours in each of the three calendar days.

Can someone please verify and clarify.

I hope I'm not being a pain but I'm not the only one who was confused by this last year.

Respectfully,

Bill Garwood N4GBK in NC

Mark your calendars.  The 2017 Triple Play Low Band Sprint is coming November 11 0000 UTC to November 13 2359 UTC.  This contest is on 40m, 80m, and 160m only and has a very unusual format.  The contest runs for 3 consecutive days and you can select your 6 hour operating slot each day.  You don’t have to use the same time slot each day.  Makes a great accommodation for propagation variation, work schedules, other commitments that limit when you can get on air! Your final score is the sum of your operations in each of the 6 hour time blocks. You can play one day, two days, or all three!
 
Details of the contest can be found HERE.  Results of last year’s contest can be found HERE.

I miss 73 magazine. Wayne’s editorials were always entertaining – and often wacky!

Good construction articles too.

I subscribed to the digital edition of CQ several year ago, but found myself not reading it. I much prefer a paper copy to digital print; might have to subscribe again.

PODXS Group,

There is a very interesting article in the September issue of CQ that deals with the problem of one station not seeing the other.
It is : Is HF Propagation Reciprocal? by Thomas Hood NW7US. It explains why the RF doesn't always go both ways on the same path.

I guess what is good for the goose is not always good for the gander when dealing with HF.

Thanks Joe,


It seems to be worse when the conditions are poor.  Sometimes I think there is something wrong with my antenna.  Maybe some WD-40 on the antenna will fix it?


Happy Radio!

Re: Triple Play Low Band Sprint scoring

Bill Garwood
 

Hello,


There was some confusion by myself and others on this list last year about the scoring and operating hours in this contest.  Some of us made QSOs that did not count in the scoring.   It might be beneficial ahead of the contest to clarify how this works. 


For example, if you start at 0000 UTC on Saturday November 11, (which is Friday night local time here on the east coast) then your 6 hour block for calendar day November 11 is from the 0000 to 0559.  If you start back up Saturday evening around sunset local time, it is at 2200 UTC still on November 11, any contacts made before 2359 UTC will not count in the scoring as you have already completed your 6 hour block for the calendar day of November 11 UTC.  Any other QSOs are entered as a check log.  Same goes for November 12/ 13.  The problem with that is there are some DX and multipliers around local sunset that will likely get missed.  You could always start each day at 1800 and but that would miss any potential QSOs around sunset on Friday night.


The problem is the rules state: "Operate 6 hours each UTC night, starting at the time of your choosing on each night."  


I think night time here on the east coast would begin at sunset and not 0000 UTC.  What is a UTC night?


Maybe the rules should state operate up to 6 consecutive hours in each of the three calendar days.


Can someone please verify and clarify.


I hope I'm not being a pain but I'm not the only one who was confused by this last year.


Respectfully,


Bill Garwood N4GBK in NC

Mark your calendars.  The 2017 Triple Play Low Band Sprint is coming November 11 0000 UTC to November 13 2359 UTC.  This contest is on 40m, 80m, and 160m only and has a very unusual format.  The contest runs for 3 consecutive days and you can select your 6 hour operating slot each day.  You don’t have to use the same time slot each day.  Makes a great accommodation for propagation variation, work schedules, other commitments that limit when you can get on air! Your final score is the sum of your operations in each of the 6 hour time blocks. You can play one day, two days, or all three!

 

Details of the contest can be found HERE.  Results of last year’s contest can be found HERE.
