Wife and I are leaving Missouri Tomorrow or Wednesday (Bad weather may delay us a day) and I should be home Sunday or Monday. Wife said I could have the weekend of the 31st to the 2nd to be available.
So if you still need a West Coast Bonus, I would be available

Chris,

In case, as Steve W3HF has pointed out, your email is still not working right, I will restate that your participation as Bonus Station for TDW is welcome and needed. The official TDW announcement to that effect will be out by the end of this week.

Many thanks to Steve, W3HF, for pointing me in the right direction.

Enjoy the chase!!

73,

Stan

Re: #525 SK

John - AI4FR
 

Thanks for the post and this is very sad news. My most sincere condolences to his family. I have Mark in the log 20 times on 6 bands with 2 modes(PSK31 and FT8) dating back to 2007. He was a great op and will be missed.


Rest in peace Mark,

John / AI4FR

This is sad news, indeed.   Mark and I had many nice rag-chews on 20M PSK31.  

 

I missed our chats when Mark became less active.  I remember seeing his callsign CQing for an hour or so on 20M FT8 last fall, but I was unable to work him. 

 

I found this obituary for Mark:

 

 

Rest In Peace, old friend.  I’ll miss you.

Re: Volunteer Monitors

Jerry N9AVY
 

It’s an updated, revamped version of the old Official Observer Program.  I was an OO for a few years and felt that minuses outweighed the pluses.  Others may have different results. 

 

This new program removes the personal aspect which may be a good thing because some OO’s received death threats and other forms of harassment over the years.

 

Being in Canada Steve, you might no be eligible, but it would hurt to check with ARRL HQ since you do have a U.S. license and you might have to cross border once in a while.

Interesting Announcement from the Weekly Newsletter. I would love see some PSK operators jump on this. Since I am in Canada, I dont think I would be eligible.

ARRL Invites Applications for Volunteer Monitor Positions

ARRL is now accepting applications from individuals interested in becoming part of the new Volunteer Monitor program, a joint undertaking of the FCC and ARRL. The program seeks volunteers who -- working under the direction of ARRL -- will monitor and survey the Amateur Radio bands both to detect improper activity and to recognize exemplary on-the-air behavior.

Prospective Volunteer Monitors must be ARRL members. They will undergo a training and certification program administered by ARRL, and will be vetted by ARRL through at least one oral interview and a preliminary evaluation by ARRL staff. Such requirements will continue for Volunteer Monitors once they are selected.

Volunteer Monitors will serve 3-year terms at the pleasure of ARRL, and ARRL will reserve the right to terminate the participation of any Volunteer Monitor for any reason.

Volunteer Monitors must be able to utilize state-of-the-art receiving equipment and to access no-cost remote receive sites, if requested. Applicants must possess strong writing and communication skills and an understanding of the importance of thorough documentation. They must have basic word processing and data entry skills and be able to send such information, including recordings, to ARRL electronically.

Applicants must have no history of warning letters or other enforcement-related action from the FCC, must hold a Technician or higher class license, and must have been licensed for at least 3 years.

Applicants should send applications to volunteer-monitor@... for processing.

In February, Riley Hollingsworth, K4ZDH, was named to oversee the development and implementation phases of the Volunteer Monitor program, which will replace the Official Observer (OO) program. Hollingsworth once handled Amateur Radio enforcement for the FCC.

Sitting here for last ½ hour trying to work IT9GHW who was mostly 599.  Too many Europeans calling him or it must have been one-way propagation.  Finally lost him.  During that time also saw IT9PQO a few hz. Lower.  Sure wish we have good conditions again because I really don’t want to fire up amp.

I'd be willing.  I was planing on be on air all three days.  Just let me know.

Not much on 20m

Jerry N9AVY
 

Or anywhere else on bands.  Pickins are slim.   Did work a couple stations in AR QP, a special event in TX and one new 070 # . 

 

Seems like 20m is in & out ; one minute you hear a station and by the time you answer them, they’re gone.

 

Hope condition improve soon.   Have been seeing Italian station around 3 PM CDT , but they a few.  I’d have the 20 by now , but missed bunches of them in last couple weeks.
