Subject: [070Club] Grids

A few months ago I made a little list of needed grids using Excel and keep next to radio so when I work a grid I can quickly see if I need it.  It has been very helpful/  Last night I compared it to the checker  and found that a few had been worked .   Crossed them off list, but found a couple that were missing and not worked.

Wonder if anyone working on grids does same ???    Still have lots of grids to work and it may be years before I finish , if ever.

Just a reminder, for all of my mobile operations I am using KC3EF/M for LOTW.  Just to make sure all who worked me get QSL for the operation. 
 
Worked N7WE, N9AVY, AK4MK, and several others in DM23.  Band was up and down, but managed to get everyone who tried to work me.  Also, started having problems with the antenna.  Apparently the cable between the tuner and the antenna has an open shield, and since I don’t have the required tools it won’t be fixed until I return to FL. 
 
Will be operating as KC3EF/P from EL28 starting on Friday the 13th and ending Thursday 19th.  Will be in the evenings, since we will be doing tourist stuff during the day.  Will try any mode that is needed, just let me know.

I expected to see KC3EF/M on eQSL as well and had uploaded to that callsign.
I noticed today that you had omitted the suffix modifier so I altered my entries to match KC3EF.

Delos...Good to hear from you Old Timer! It's been a while...

 

I also have an excel spreadsheet that I made & use, but, primarily, I use the mixw built in log, plus the "icon.cfg" file and the "icons" folder within mixw to tell me if I need them or if I've worked them before.

 

Back in the day, that excel spreadsheet is what I used to submit, for LONP, to Charlie, K8IJ. Not necessary anymore with David's great log checker.

No danger of wardrobe malfunction!.  Just a pair of shorts, t-shirt, moccasins, but a big selection of baseball caps. It is Florida and I can't remember when I had hair on my head.  The Meatloaf experience reminds me of a similar one we had many years ago....except it was the Everly Brothers.  Couldn't find the tune.  When they sang "Wake Up Little Susie" the crowd went to sleep!  Speaking of which, I think I forgot to go to bed!  Good night all.

I just hope Rick doesn’t have a wardrobe malfunction!

Speaking of musicians that should give it up, I was listening to a live Meatloaf concert a few months ago. That guy used to have the most incredible voice, but he can't carry a tune in a basket anymore - and the audience still loved him. I'll try to remember him the way he was.

Bill:

When I started chasing grids did the same, but wasn't satisfied with size; so I took it to copy place and had it enlarged to twice the size in B&W.  When I worked a new grid I just color it it with a pencil (your choice of color).
Chart fits on back of shack door.  I abandoned it for the chart because my station is in cabinet with doors and the Excel sheet is taped to door for quick reference . 

This afternoon I saw a station on 40m who was in DM97, but he faded qiuckly and was gone in a minute. Rats !

Jerry,

I made a chart like that but I also have a copy of the ARRL Grid Locator for North America map.  It is printed in landscape format on regular 8 1/2 by 11 paper.  What I do is I put a red dot in the square of every grid that shows worked in the 070 Checker.  I occasionally will pull up the info on the checker and be sure my chart agrees with the grids approved by the checker.  At a quick glance, I can see if I have that grid.  I have most of the grids in the eastern US but a lot of spaces left in the west.  I also put an X in the squares that the 070 awards do not use.

Happy Radio!
