APE this Wed/Thurs

F.R. Ashley <wd4psa@...>
 

This Wed/Thurs looking great for me but again I'll be QRP only and will be only on 20 meters.   I hope to get in 4-5 hrs, I know that isn't much but best I can do for now.
Normally my QRP is CW only and this PSK APE'ing has revealed the problem with overheating with the KX2.  So I am now thinking of a 100-watt rig for PSK portable so I'll be looking at some use rigs but that FT-891 looks tempting!

Hi All - The sixth annual KC9UR Pontoon Portable APE will be conducted on Saturday, August 25th and Sunday, August 26th.  Stan (W9SMR/9) and I plan to set up Saturday morning the 25th, and hope to be on the air by 1pm EST.   We will be operating two rigs on the 80m - 10m bands (each rig on a separate band), propagation permitting.  We plan to operate Saturday afternoon and evening as well as Sunday morning and early afternoon, We will keep the group informed via this forum.  Like last year, as a concession to our advancing years, our shack will be on the front porch of Stan's cottage, not on the actual boat.  The front porch looks out over Round Lake and the Pontoon boat (it's a beautiful sight).  As in past years we will be offering a nice paper QSL (just send us your QSL and SASE), and a really nice certificate for the APE Hunters who work us on 3 bands.  Obtaining an APE Hunter's Certificate will be a bit more challenging this year because of the shorter operating time and propagation conditions, but I know many of you are up for the task!  We really enjoy working so many of you and look forward to reconnecting with you then!

Hello Larry,  I will be attempting an APE next week:
Callsign: W8VYM/P
Locator: EM82ct
physical location: Arrowhead Campground, GA
Dates: 13-16 Aug 2018
Times: Various (holiday style)
Bands: 40 meters (20M if 40 is unusable)

Planning on setting up camp during the afternoon of the 13th and on-the-air by 2200Z.  Leaving the camp on the 16th so will only be active during the morning hours.  Hope to get some contacts!

Thanks,
John

Rick

I'm back home now.  Not much was on 40, only heard a few stations   The KX2 began heating up to the point of shutting down even at 4-5 watts out.  Now I have the excuse I need for a new 100-watt rig, maybe something along the lines of a FT-891 or Icom 7100!  I'm planning on going to a different place a little closer to home, hope to see you then.

Been looking, but nothing on 40m except static crashes.  Have t-storms moving through, but was seeing occasional mid-west stations on 20m. Going QRT until this next squall line passes.

Hi all.

it is now 1906Z, I put my wire up so now will attempt 40 meters 7.071.   I'm getting hammered on 20 by other stations and modes. Bear in mind I'm QRP !    I'll stay here 2 more hours before packing up and heading home.   Well just as I typed that a WinLink station cranked up on top of me on 40m..

Understandable that tech does not always cooperate.
In the meantime maybe we can encourage posting of pertinent data.
