Section Manager Response Re: FT8

Jim K5SP
 

This is what I received from the NTX section Manage to my message to him regarding the FT8 issues:

Jim,

I am not sure what I can do to help. I bet many of these stateside FT8 operators are newbies and may not even be members of the league.

The OO program is basically dead at this point due to FCC dysfunction.


The ARRL has no standing to pressure another company to do anything.


The OO program would probably be the best bet. I am CC'ing the NTX OOC on this reply.


You could also write an article for QRZ--

1. If the OO program is "Dead", why would the OO program be the best bet?
2. Anyone want to write a QRZ article?
3. Would agree ARRL has no official standing, but, are they not acting like a PAC with the FCC?  They can and do lobby for what they think is in the best interest of hams (or what will line their pockets).

31 Flavors Contest Scorer setup

Matthew King - AK4MK <kk4cps@...>
 

Shame on me!

I thought I had already contacted David about setting up the contest scorer for 31 Flavors. Apparently I did not, as there is no facility for submitting the 2018 31 Flavors scores, as many of you have noticed.

I am SOOOOO sorry for the lapse!

I have now contacted David.  I cannot promise when it will be done, but I'm sure he will do it as quickly as he can. As Steve, W3HF said, if it goes on for too terribly long (more than a day or two) then we will certainly expand the submission window to give extra time.

I will post to both groups as soon as the scorer has been setup for the 31 Flavors contest for this year.

It appears that the contest scorer is not setup for this years 31 Flavors contest logs to be submitted.

Re: KC3EF Road Trip

Jerry N9AVY
 

Good news !
 
 
Back on the air with a TS-570S &  Signalink USB !    Took some doing to get it running, but have made a few contacts. Not quite like the ol" FT-1000MP, but it'll do.
 
A happy camper once again...  :-)

Terrible news. If I still had the spare FLEX I would send it to you.
Had a grid short in an amp once. Not a pretty sight.

Re: FW: FT8 Complaint

Gary GM7USC
 

I think with FT8 there’s been a Hugh uptake so people with no experiance and little knowledge of digital modes are purely ignorant of how these modes work.

My main reason for selecting special notices only was because I don’t want to get any messages via email.  I prefer to just go to the site if I want to see what’s going on.  Maybe others are choosing it for the same reason.

I’ve been off PSK31 for about a year but maybe I’ll find the time again some day.

Just a reminder that 31 Flavors is this weekend.  Hope to see everyone there.

I just might not be able to operate, the WX forecast is not good for this area, severe storms are forecast, and for this area means possible high winds, rain, hail, lightning/thunder, and possible tornadoes.  (It is Spring and it is Texas).

Yes, Ray that is true but you have to make sure the qso logs before changing modes.

Re 31 flavors - just a heads up make sure your mode contact is in the log before switching modes.
In the last couple of 31 flavors there have been several instances where logging has not happened in the excitement.
Hope to see you.
