Don’t know if anyone else has ever noticed this, but on several occasions I’ve see everyone crowded in just a few Khz (like maybe 40 or 50) and they complain about QRM… yet they won’t spread out.  Guess it’s just one of the eccentricities of PSK31 …     When I see this I usually go up a long way from to and call CQ , often getting responses.

 

One of the things that make one go , “Hmmmmm ?”.

Too bad it is so difficult to work each other.
I suspect east of the mississippi may be an advantage.

Barry,

Unless something very dramatic happens, we Northwest Coasters are out of the running on the 25 QSOs.  Even in the club events, a half dozen contacts has been exceptional for us.  My <guess> is that you have to be south of Sacramento to have much of a chance.  Ah, well.  Maybe there will be an opening to JA and VK.

Merry Christmas to all the 070-ers out there!

My plans are to be on 40/80 starting at 0001Z 12/25.  Want to get some on Christmas Eve, and then will try 20 meters Christmas Day.

Paul, I had 28 contacts for 12/25 last year starting with KD8JSP on 40M and ending with WB8YXF on 20M, with New Hampshire to Alaska represented in the log.  I didn't get it done in as short a clock time as you as I was in and out of the shack with family events.

My sense from the last three or four PSK events, however, is that somehow our prop condx have deteriorated quite a bit lately. 

That doesn't mean I won't be there to give it a good shot on the 25th, though!  My guess is that 40M might be our best bet this time around. 

I hope to see you all there.

Called CQ with Auto CQ for about 10 minutes and gave up. Rest of bands seem dead.

I’m in the PNW (you could just about throw a stone from my place and hit K8TOM, in fact).

 

I recall doing the Christmas Run last year and being successful, although I don’t see it on my endorsement page.  Not sure what’s up with that, as I have 26 entries in my log for last Christmas day.  I had a blast, as pretty much everyone who was QRV was in a fine mood.  Lots of folks describing their new radios.  Lots and lots of MCHNY.

 

 My first QSO that day was at 1936Z with WL7CG in Alaska.  My last was 2252Z with W4RPW in Tennessee. So, under 3 and a half hours for the entire effort.  Apparently I never shifted away from 20m.

 

As I recall I was running 30 watts into my OCFD at 30 feet - it’s not like I have a a fancy contest station.

 

The question, really, is how many folks will stray away from FT8.  But I will try to be on the air for a little while, for those folks who want to try.  Tom, you’re essentially ground wave to me.  Barry, 20m is tough as your signal goes right over my head, but if you shoot me an email I’d be happy to shift over to 80m where we would have a fine chance I think.  (You are in my log on 80m, 40m, 30m, and 12m. )

 

Regardless of whether folks get on the air or not, I hope you all have a FB Christmas and a prosperous and fun-filled NY.
