Dusty,

I have answered you twice but you do not see me.  I guess we have one of those one way QSO's going.  OK I see you with N7WE now so you made your contact.

Saturday January 5, 2019 at 0000 UTC PSKFest 2019 begins!  This year brings new general contest rules - please be sure to read them BY CLICKING HERE.  The contest is open to members and non-members alike.  Invite your friends to participate!  24 hours.  80 thru 10 meters - no WARC bands - work each station once per band.  Required Exchange and full rules are on the website.  LINK TO PSKFEST RULES.

Last year Kirk - WB8C from Virginia walked away with Top Dawg and 1st in Medium Power.  Steve - VA3TPS in Canada picked up 1st in High Power, while Gary - K3TCU in Pennsylvania grabbed 1st in Low Power.  Greg - WD9FTZ from Ohio represented the mid-west earning 1st in QRP.  Will they be able to repeat this year or will someone else claim the crowns?  Last year there were Qs logged in 23 of the 24 hours.  So get on, stay on, and give it your best!  Poor propagation is not an excuse - someone will WIN!  It could be you!  See you on the waterfall!

It saved mine, too. One of my contacts was over my phone while standing in line for a roller coaster.

I actually just returned from a week in Florida, and I was not traveling with a radio, but still managed my at least one contact a day (plus 14 on Christmas Day) using a Remote Desktop application to remote control my computer and radio. The radio is powered via a smart plug that i can control via the internet. I took a calculated risk by leaving the antenna connected (not too many thunderstorms in December in Western New York).

It can be done, but requires a bit of planing and testing to make sure that all parts are in place and are actually workin together.

If you need some tips, just shoot me an email.

Sorry to hear that Sonny, but family comes first. This is just a hobby. You have your priorities right. Maybe start planning right now to operate portable next Christmas to finish it out. It can be done and there are lots of 070 members who are very knowledgeable about doing PSK portable and would be glad to offer advice and suggestions to help you get set up. Just ask here on the list. Happy New Year!

Did not get my last few days for 365.  XYL and I went to Florida to celebrate Christmas with our son.  We do that every year so these last few may be hard to get.  Had a great Christmas and certainly hope that all of you did as well.

Hi Bryon
Yes, I had a QSO on 40m with a newbie, KD2NOY. It was a surprisingly strong contact. We we went back and forth with solid copy both ways for about 10 minutes. Then QSB came on strong and the path was lost. I emailed him some info about 070, maybe we will get a new member. I did not see another trace. I tried 80m for about 5 minutes, no joy, just ARRL code practice heard.
Thanks for replying. I will be on 20m for an hour or 2 during daylight tomorrow. And looking to cover the last 3 days of the year beginning tomorrow evening about 00:00 it's tomorrow evening.

Jim,

I saw you several times and tried, but the east-west daytime prop seemed one-way for us in the PNW most of the time.   

The 20M prop improved rather late in the game for us, but it was nice seeing the increased activity on the band.

I managed to get my 25, in between family duties.  Did not start until Christmas morning, was not allowed to get on Christmas EVE.

Never saw Jerry, or anyone in PNW.

Looks like I missed out on some of the best PSK31 all year!  We traveled to the kids (son, his wife, 4 grand kids, sister, sister-in-law, and my darling wife).  Great family time, but no PSK.  Maybe next year.  Anyway, congrats to all who made 25 and congrats to all who tried but didn't hit 25.  You still beat me, and it sounds like everyone had a grand time!  Hope you all had a Merry Christmas and wishing you all a Happy New Year 2019!

Think there may have been some one-way propagation because I never saw you.  Would have liked to work you.

Congratulations Fred.  Only 95 more for me.  I rarely work in Jan or Feb while traveling and taking a cruise and such.  But it might happen sometime.

Just made a couple long CQ’s on 7071.10   but no sign of Paula,  K7PAX.  Did work a station in CT, but it was wrong direction.
