OK, no problem.  I did a search for PSK-31 and found both groups.

Thanks for the reply

The admins of groups.io or porting over our list. It could be a few days, but it should end up being just like the main list. Though you can subscribe and get approval that way as well.

One other note:  I will be glad when the contest group is migrated to groups.io.  I get postings much faster with here....Yahoo sometimes has long delays.  It will make the contest group much more useful!

I was out during this transition and couldn't keep up with all the emails. I've been able to log into groups.io. I should be good to go if you see this...sorry for another test message. =)

Bryon / W7RIV


Matt I have a question

Geary McDowell <gearymcdowell@...>
 

Sorry for using a reply to get through, but nothing is working for me for some reason, even the direct link at the club web site.  My message below even bounced back to me.
Geary, KE5IRK

Hay Matt,
I tried to send a question to the group after the move and just now tried to go into the "group 070" and it told me I was not a subscriber.  Can you tell me which of my now 18 email addresses y'all are using to send to me.  I am guessing it is one of these:  1) ke5irk@... (which I thought we changed a year ago as it will not let me send from there, or 2) gearymcdowell@... which is my primary email I have been looking to get rid of as it is so long.  I also have a couple of gmail accounts, the other option might be ke5irk@...  I doubt I would have used any of the others for anything HAM.
Thanks, 73, Geary McDowell #1787

Not that I wish it upon you, Barry, it just seems that you're having an unusually high share of the problem pie lately.

You think maybe you've had some water ingress into some coax or something like that? Do you have an antenna analyzer that you can scan/sweep your antenna with to be sure all is well?

Just a thought... best of luck with it, my friend! :-)

I agree, that was fun.

As far as changing this contest and/or the Three Day Weekend.... I think we're going to leave well enough alone. It was my idea alone to change it, and I've received enough feedback saying that we shouldn't that I now realize I'd be in the wrong for doing so.

I was trying to balance the "more stations to work" vs "the harder challenge" and I think y'all are right, the challenge wins out.

Merry Christmas to all!
