You did not read that wrong. However, there have been special allowances made in the past as long as the “spirit” of the APE is honored.

GM,
Just an FYI that 30MDG is trying to drum up some PSK activity on the 30 Meter Band so we have decided to try a every Sunday Night at 23:00 UTC Activity Hour so thought I would post here to my 070 friends if any of you would like to join in or to place on your Groups.IO 070 Calendar.  Below is the information and thanks.

Don KB9UMT  070 #1227

************************************************************************************

30MDG PSK plus activity hour every Sunday 23:00 UTC

- if interested please participate using PSK to ragchew or experiment with other digital modes on the 30 Meter Band.  Suggested: 30 Meter Band 10.141 to 10.142 PSK  10.142 to 10.144 Olivia/Contestia/Dom/Thor/Thrb/ect. turn RXID/TXID on!.  let your other PSK/Digital Op friends know if you would like more to join in (they need not be a 30MDG to join in!)....also if able KB9UMT Don will open up the Groups.io 30MDG Chat Room during this time if conditions are poor and you don't see signals on the band.  Thanks for your participation!

Bad Signal

Jerry,
 I understand you're position, however I hope you, and all PODXS members,  
if I have a signal 3 acres wide, you would
let me know either 'on the air' or by shooting me an e-mail.
I assure you there will be no indifference or threats. 

The last thing I want to do is interfere with folks, or tarnish my LONP.

Jerry,

 

You could always try looking up call signs for the offenders in QRZ.com and sending them a private, polite e-mail to advise them of the problem.  I know I appreciate it if someone tells me my signal is causing problems.  You can’t see your own signal.

 

I also try to give an honest RSQ rather than a courtesy 599.  That third digit describes visible pairs, and if it’s less than a 9, you can work with the other station to try to correct the problem - less transmit power, less audio gain, whatever.

Re: Fooling with alpha list ...

Jerry N9AVY
 

Yup, it’s always fun getting to know someone better than just the normal QSO data !  I’m mostly a ragchewer, but I respect those who aren’t and usually just barely make a contact… many don’t even give out all the usual data.

 

I someone wants to ragchew I’m for it, but there are days when I have to be some place and that’s not always practical.

Having more than one QSO with someone, especially an actual rag chew, is kind of the point, isn’t it?

It’s nice when you get to catch up with someone you’ve talked to before. :-)
