Ah, to live in the rich HF environs of the southern banana belt of the East Coast....

But we do have very luxurious moss...(on everything, even metal, plastic, rubber, concrete).

Merry Christmas to all!

I think is AWESOME! A lot of hams don’t go the paper route due to the expense. Near as I can tell, the cost of QSLing is reaching $5.00 per card if one goes the direct route overseas, and not much cheaper domestically. This can be a financial drain on folks with a fixed income.

That being said, I love QSL cards and will always respond if/when one is requested. My pleasure! :-)

I agree with my dear friend Milt N6MG, it is really something that LoTW is approaching 1 billion. It’s helping to keep a lot of us in he paper chase!

If you are looking to finish out the 2018 Germany endorsement, I'm seeing a lot of German stations strong into central Florida this AM.  Jump on them!

Congrats, Matt!!

And thanks for my only 160m QSO in the contest.

Now, make it a Triple-Header by starting your plan to do another A.P.E. this August. 

Your Ontario adventure was awesome. And I think we set a record in 2017 with the first A.P.E. to A.P.E. QSO to the KC9UR Pontoon Portable A.P.E., on 3 bands, no less!!

Let us all know your plans for A.P.E. this year!

I suspect a lot of that billion and many from the same ones over and over who do take the time to QSL.  If people don’t want to QSL, then why even sign up for LoTW??  That just does not compute.

070 Contest Changes for 2019!

Rick - N7WE
 

Three big changes coming for 070 Contests in 2019!

 

1.     ALL contests will be open to any licensed amateur within the limitations and privileges of their national licensing regulations.  There will no longer be any “members only” contests.

2.     The former June High Band Challenge contest has been retired to make room for some new developments.  This has always been our lowest participation contest, due in part to the difficulty of getting on bands above 6m.  And it is likely the spotty propagation on 10m and 6m the past few years will continue as we approach and until we get well past the solar minimum.  

3.     The 070 Contest Rules have been revised and updated. They will be posted to the 070 Web Site.  For your review prior to the 2019 PSK Fest, they follow below as “Contest 2.0 – 070 Club Official Contest Rules.”  These rules become effective at 0000 UTC January 1, 2019.

 

 

CONTEST 2.0 - 070 CLUB OFFICIAL CONTEST RULES

General Rules

1.       These rules apply to all 070 club contests. Every contest has (in addition) its own set of contest-specific rules. Although we don’t expect conflicts, any contest’s specific rules should be viewed as superseding any conflicting general rules.

2.       All contest operations must be in compliance with the station’s national licensing regulations, including both station and operator privileges and limitations.

3.       All contacts must be two-way BPSK31 only (with the exception of 31 Flavors).

4.       No cross-band, cross-mode, or repeater contacts are allowed.

5.       All contest submissions must be made via the official 070 Contest Scorer (graciously written by KJ4IZW).

6.       All contest submissions are due 7 (seven) calendar days after the end of the contest. Each contest will list the specific due date.

7.       No 070 club contests include operation on WARC bands or 60m.

8.       A valid QSO (for contest purposes) is one in which each station transmits over the air its required contest exchange (as defined for the contest) and the other station receives that exchange over the air.

9.       Dupe rule - Only one contact is allowed between any two stations per band (or mode for 31 Flavors). Duplicate contacts (dupes) may be left in the submitted log, but are assigned zero QSO points. Logs with an excessive number of dupes may be disqualified or listed as check logs.

10.   Any given QSO may appear in one contest log submission only.

11.   For contests where scoring is location-based (SPC, or maybe future grid), the station location can change during the contest as long as all operations are from a single location category (e.g., state or province for SPC). All of these operations can be combined into a single contest entry, and these operations are subject to the dupe rule (for both stations). If operations are from multiple location categories (e.g., multiple states in an SPC contest), then those operations must be considered separate contest entries, and are not subject to the dupe rule. Entrants are encouraged to use unique callsign variants (e.g., KK4CPS and KK4CPS/4) to denote operations from different locations.

12.   Each station must operate a single transmitter at a time. No multi-transmitter operation is permitted.

13.   Each station entry must be operated by a single operator except for the club category.

14.   A station can alternate operation under multiple callsigns (e.g. a club call and an individual call) as long as callsign switches occur no more frequently than once every two hours. In other words, once a station is used under one callsign, it cannot be used under another callsign for contest contacts until at least two hours have passed.

a.     The two-hour limitation does not apply to individuals' use of family stations, where multiple individual licensees share a station at a commonly-licensed address.

15.   Clubs are subject to the following rules:

a.     The club itself is subject to the same entry requirements as any individual would be.

b.     Clubs are limited to a single transmitter at a time.

c.      Clubs may alternate operators, but they must work shifts without overlaps.

d.     Entries must indicate the operator for each QSO.

e.     Multi-operator club operations are subject to the location limitations listed in rule 11.

16.   A station cannot be operated simultaneously under multiple callsigns, e.g., a club call and an individual call.

17.   Unlike most “big” contests, self-spotting is allowed on 070 reflectors. There is no separate category for “assisted” stations who pay attention to spotting networks or read their email during the contest.

18.   A station’s contest score is calculated as the product of the total number of QSO points and the number of multipliers, to which is added the number of bonus points (if any), i.e. (QSOs * Multipliers) + Bonus.

19.   Operation from a single remote base station is allowed, but that remote base must be the only station used by that operator during the contest. For purposes of contest exchange and entry category, the station location is the location of the remote base station transmitter and receiver. Use of a remote receiver only, or of a split remote (with different locations for transmitter and receiver), is not permitted.

20.   Submission of a contest entry indicates the entrant’s assertion of compliance with all rules applicable to the contest and the entry itself.

21.   All 070 club members submitting a contest entry will receive an "attaboy" endorsement sticker for that contest.

22.   The 070 club leadership reserves the right to issue a final decision on rules interpretations and infractions, and to disqualify entries deemed not in accordance with the above rules or contrary to the spirit of club events.

Contest-Specific Rules

Each contest has a set of rules that are specific to that contest. These rules will include the following:

1.       Allowed bands for the contest.

2.       The operating period for the contest.

3.       Entry categories (e.g., power level, type of entrant, or location).

a.     Type of entrant may include gender (for Valentine’s Day), Bonus Station (for TDW), club, or individual.

4.       Output power limits (if any), either by entrance category or overall.

5.       The point value for each valid QSO, and the criteria for distinguishing between QSO categories (e.g., YL , OM, and Club QSOs during the Valentine’s Day Sprint).

6.       Multiplier definitions (if applicable).

7.       Bonus point definitions (if applicable).

8.       Awards to be issued for the contest.
