Well done Dan!  Please add my congratulations to those already posted here.  I often think WTW is the most difficult of all the 070 Endorsements - and you have done it!

40M FIRECRACKER SPRINT - Starts Tomorrow

stan W9SMR
 


 
The 070 Club 40M Firecracker Sprint Contest begins tomorrow!


The 24 hour window -

Opens at:  2000 UTC (1600 EDT) on Saturday July 6th

Closes at: 2000 UTC (1600 EDT) Sunday July 7th. 

You choose your best 6 hour block when submitting your entry.  Logs due 1 week after contest closes. Open to all licensed amateurs. 

You can use this Contest to increase your LONP totals and work on tough Endorsements like WALC-NA*. Our members on the West Coast are struggling for contacts, partly because those operators on the East coast and the Mid-West are hitting the sack before conditions are favorable to the West coast. An idea has been offered where operators on the West Coast will periodically check the activity they see and post that info to the Reflector. Enter your own call or other’s in PSKReporter to see activity. Pick your starting time to optimize short, medium and long distance contacts.

As conditions improve, your chances of making these contacts will soar!! Pull out the coffee pot and enjoy the chase!!

4 categories – High, Medium, Low, and QRP power. 

Exchange: Callsign, Signal Report, State/Province/Country (SPC).

Call:  “CQ 40m Sprint”

Full details can be found at: http://www.podxs070.com/o7o-club-sponsored-contests/40m-firecracker-sprint


Good luck to all and hope to see you on the waterfall!

* WALC-NA
Work All Left Coast of North America and earn the WALC-NA endorsement! To qualify for the WALC-NA, work Alaska, British Columbia, Washington, Oregon and California on PSK31, one contact required in each state/province for a total of 5 contacts. 160M thru 6M only.

Here in central Florida (the lightning capital of the US) our summer blessing is almost daily, and sometimes several times a day, T-storms.  The issue for summer contesting is not what time the band opens, it is when to tip the vertical back up so you can get on air.  Sometimes the cells just line up and freight train through, one after the other.  I think my record was up and down 5 times in one 24 hour period.  Continuous 6 hour block?  Good luck with that!  But you grow where you are planted.

Do you guys in the PNW get 40m openings to Alaska, Hawaii, and Japan?  It's been years since I could work Japan or Hawaii on 40m and I still have never worked Alaska on 40m from this QTH.

Mike,

What a great experience you had. You enjoyed all the features the Daze was hoped to provide.

Congrats on a big bump in your LONP. And welcome to PODXS 070. I hope you continue to enjoy this great group.

We are hoping to do another Endorsement Daze - LONP in August. Standby for that.

Keep up the good work and please feel free always to give us the feedback.

Stan,

As a newcomer (PODXS # 2653), I found Endorsement Daze enjoyable.

I spent only a total of 5.5 hours on the air, but had 16 contacts (11 with PODXS 070 members) and managed to raise my LONP count from 11 to 20. Long way to go to make LONP, but that's OK.

I appreciated the "no contest" philosophy. On several occasions, I did an extended rag-chew with PSK-31 operators who were unaware of PODXS 070 or what the club does. So we got some "free press" on the air, just by virtue of the fact that there were multiple QSOs visible on the waterfalll and we were willing to stop and talk rather than get a signal report and move on. Member recruitment may be one of the most important benefits of Endorsement Daze.
