Awards Checker

Mike Besemer <mwbesemer@...>
 

Anyone else having issues with the Award  Checker tonight?  I just uploaded my log and it zeroed out all my award totals and shows zero awards in-progress.

The first page shows the correct number of QSOs but the 2nd page shows zero.

Tried numerous uploads and exported the ADIF file several times.

Barry,

Maybe I'm just a tad pessimistic--but with the prop that we've had lately I'm a little edgy about the chances of finding 25 on 25 on the left coast.  Perhaps St. Nick will send a bit of a blessing to our airwaves.

Merry Christmas to All es 73,

I too will be absent on Christmas, but for those who are not so fortunate as to have family and friends close, or just need a short getaway, know that some of your 070 family will be on the air looking to wish you Merry Christmas and help you make those 25 QSOs!

Well, it's official. CONTEST 2.0, mentioned in passing a few times before, has come to fruition!

CONTEST 2.0 has been an all-encompassing initiative for revamping our contest offerings. With the CONTEST 2.0 initiative, we:

- have re-written and codified our contest rule base
- are introducing the "Rollo Award Tag" (a dog tag for the Top Dawgs featuring our very own Rollo!)
- are introducing our new "Rollo Bluesky" contest placement certificates
- are introducing "RC3", the Rollo Contest Championship Cup. Details of the RC3 will come soon
- are introducing the contest calendar for the next three years

Please find the attached CONTEST 2.0 PDF file and peruse it at your convenience.

The Rollo Contest Championship Cup (RC3) is an exciting new point series that now accompanies our contests. 2018 will be the first contest year for the RC3.

We are excited about this new point series!  Each contest entrant will be automatically entered into the RC3.  The current standings will be listed on the website.

After the final points at tallied up at the end of the year, a engraved silver "Revere Cup" style trophy will be shipped out to the RC3 winner, as well as a special commemorative certificate.  

Here is an idea of what this trophy will look like:





We sure are looking forward to what we hope will be a banner year for 070 contesting!

The only change from past years is returning the Three Day Weekend contest to its original slot of following the Memorial Day weekend, as opposed to being on the holiday.  Matt – AK4MK - 070 Executive Director said: “ Making this change will avoid both the holiday weekend AND the low band interference from the CQ CW contest and allow synergy with 10-10 Open Season contest.”

Re: 40M

Matthew King - AK4MK <kk4cps@...>
 

Randy - I see PSK31 signals most all the time, but not on 40m. That seems to be a very late afternoon/evening/night band for me. 20m seems to work from a bit after sun up to evening time.  I'm using both a Hustler 6BTV (over 40 radials) and a 20m Extended Double Zepp oriented NE/SW. The Hustler is the 40m antenna and I alternate between them on 20m.
