Barry,
 
Saw N5SLY (Lee) trying desperately to get through to you.  He had a great sig up here in CT.
Did he ever get in the log?
I didn't even see a faint trace from you.
I threw out a mess of CQ's in the hopes of you seeing them but no bannanaaaah.
Maybe an ionospheric vortex has developed over BC.

antenna problems, etc

Jerry N9AVY
 

aThings were okay until I tried putting antenna tuner and coax switch back in line. Couldn't seem to get any readings except when going directly to coax with antenna at other end. Dumb old HFT1500 (Vectronics/MFJ)  didn't seem to show any swr no matter how much I played with tuner.  Have 2 tuners, one is a real Vectronics & other is a MFJ, the both gave zero responses... couldn't tune anything .  Drat ! 

Decided to try them on the air ...nothing on 20m so went to 40m where I worked John, KD8JSP, and all was okay.  Went to 80m and SWR was sky high !  Back to drawing board.

Took new tuner  and noticed what could be a problem as was pointed out to me by KF2GQ the other day...  roller inductor upon eyeball inspection looked a little funky with corrosion. Looking for spray contact cleaner (wherever I put it !) , but the solution will be to put the same stuff in contact that we put on antennas - No-Ox or Penetrox.

I believe that and changing out coax switch will solve problems.  Keeping my fingers crossed.  This problem may be what wiped out my Amp a year or so ago.

I was mistaken in saying that a station can be worked more than once in the Triple Play or Doubleheader.

The rules say "Work each station once per band" with no further guidance.  The scorer appears to be set up to exclude multiple contacts to the same station on the same band within a contest, regardless of the time block one logs it in.

I'm not sure how I really feel about that, but it's certainly too late to change the rules now. 

We'll look at the rule in the off season and determine whether to keep it in place or change it (we'll make sure the other contest's rules match as applicable) but the way it's written is the way it will remain for this year.

For explicit clarification: "WORK EACH STATION ONCE PER BAND IN THE CONTEST, REGARDLESS OF WHICH TIME BLOCK IN WHICH THE STATION IS WORKED"

Sorry for the confusion....

Well, I may try a 160M antenna next year but not sure.  I have the Zero Five 27’ vertical which does really well considering so I may order a 33’ or 43’ Zero five vertical and see if it is any better.  Thanks again.

Don't fret, Dan - my 160m antenna came down in a storm last year, so I'm just doing 40m and 80m off of my Hustler 6BTV as well.  The 160m antenna wasn't much, but it was *something* at least... oh, well, a new one is slated to go up next year.

I hear the 43' verticals will load up OK on 160 with a good tuner. Just make sure it'll handle a pretty high SWR at a good duty cycle & power rating given that PSK-31/RTTY are 100% "on" as opposed to SSB and CW.
