Re: Not Activated Grids - Update

Update.
DM85 has been activated by Dick - KC3EF in the past.  See his message #55847.  However, in the 070 Progress Checker it still shows as no one has logged that grid.  Not sure why; maybe none of the stations he worked have uploaded a log to the progress checker.  But it HAS been activated!

Send him a letter (piece of paper in an envelope !   Some new guys may never have done anything other than email or social media)  and ask the question.  Put in a self addressed, stamped envelope (SASE ,  nor Sealed After Something Escaped,  haha ).

Barry-
Not sure about the /G, but as Steve said - the FCC data base shows KI7OW expired 07/06/2003 and was cancelled 07/07/2005.  Not reissued.  However, it does show a KI7OWG as Steven White in Fallon NV - a Tech class license.  Combining that with Paula's comment, maybe it was KI70WG who just got it mixed up in his software and intended to be KI7OWG/AG.  He has no email listed on QRZ so no way to contact him to find out.

Every one of those is on my “needed grid” list  plus several more which have been activated.

Triggered by Dick's - KC3EF - recent activation of rare grids, I looked back at Steve's - W3HF - work from August 2017 and the updates in David's - KJ4IZW - Awards Progress Checker database.  If I've got it right, there are now only 7 (or 8?) grids out of the 436 for the US-CONS-Grids Endorsement that have never been activated.

DM85 - New Mexico/Texas
DN25 - Idaho/Montana
DN34 - Idaho/Montana
DN52 - Wyoming
DN65 - Montana
DN75 - Montana
EN28 - Minnesota
    and
DL88 - Texas? 
According to the Progress Checker, someoneone logged 6I2IUX from that grid in 2007, but I cannot run down that call.  It would be a call allotted to Mexico per the ITU, but I can't find that it was ever issued as a ham call.  That is the only one in the database for DL88.  I'm wondering if it was a busted grid. Having operated from DL89 in 2016, I know no one has operated from DL88 without it being a very specific intent!  It is a very small slice on the Rio Grande in Big Bend National Park, remote (one road in and it isn't a road! - what they call a two-track out west), and very inhospitable.  But that doesn't mean it didn't happen.  So that one gets a question mark.


Corrections and updates to this posting are welcome!

Anyone out there willing to go /M or /P and put one of these last few grids on the air?  Your praises will long be sung by many 070ers!

Maybe he meant /AG authorized general?

Any idea what the /G means?

Barry -

I wonder if you copied the callsign incorrectly, perhaps due to QRN. There's no KI7OW in the FCC database. 

A mangled bit or two could have resulted in an invalid callsign.

Sorry everyone, due to a bridge closing we did not get thru CN76.  We are in Seattle for the next few days and then will hit the road on the way back to FL on Tuesday.  I will post girds we are traveling thru.

Re: Help from friends . . . a little off-topic

Hi Paula 
I agree with John. I bought the 7300 a while ago for a 1000 bucks new. Unbelievable audio which is better than my 7410.
My hearing ain’t the best but the 7300 has made all the difference for me. 
I only use it for SSB. 
If the budget allows keep the 940 and get a 7300. 
I get great reports on audio quality with the stock mic.

Hi, Paula,

One of my buddies has the 7610, and he loves it....  But he also says that the extra features on it are features he never uses.   A 7300 like I have would have served him well.   But its a fantastic radio, and he truly is happy with it.

That is what I love about this club. I have made some good friends here and would love to get a few eyeball QSO’s someday.

 

If any of you have an IC-7610 would you contact me? I’d love to get your opinion on that rig. I’m thinking of upgrading from my trusty IC-7000 for the shack. I can then put the 7000 in my car.

 

Oh, and I sold my Hexbeam to a new YL ham in our club. She is thrilled!
