Dorian has come and gone.  Non-event at this QTH, for which we are thankful!  1.9" of rain and 20 mph wind.  We've had much worse t-storms this summer.  All back up and tested.  Hope to work you in the Jay Hudak Memorial Sprint!

HI HI HI I have a pretty full calendar, until Aug - Dec
I try to get on 20 especially, each morning between 0900 and 1100 Oklahoma time.
Many days I see no one on any band.  But I give it a try.
I am on the computer way too much and since it all at the same desk (see my QRZ page) I hope over and try PSK at other times too.
I like all callers, old contacts and new ones.  I hope to fill in many more spaces on my calendar this year.
It does not matter to me whether it is a quick contact to help with endorsements or a long QSO (my longest has been just over 1 1/2 hours).
I have not seen Europe in a few months, I use to see them early daily.
73 to all and hope to work everyone in the club at some point.

Just found out the my 80/40 meter vertical in back yard wasn’t connected after finding end of coax dangling; so have no idea what I was transmitting on !!! Might have been the dual sloper, but thought it was dead and non-resonant. By my calculations I may have been transmitting on the piece of coax that runs out to switch on tower – what ? Bears further investigation.

 

Spent most of day mowing lawn, doing yard work (Trimming neighbors stupid pine trees which were hitting me in face every time I mowed .  Got new tires on van and had to get tire on lawn tractor repaired because it went flat. Also did a bit of grocery shopping. Was a busy day for me with limited mobility. Radio was at bottom of list today, but managed to squeeze in a couple of contacts.

 

Am still disappointed I didn’t hear a peep out of pontoon mobile this August. 

 

Sure hope 20m gets busy soon…

I see several 366 Award chasing folks need some QSOs on SEPTEMBER dates coming up fast.

If you see these folks on the air, be sure to give them a call and make their DAY. Total days needed (#).

 

KC3FL (2) – 9/19

 

KC4TIE (5) – 9/12

 

R6KEE (4) – 9/18, 9/22

 

K5KHK (8) – 9/4, 9/11, 9/23

 

WB8YXF (17) –9/6,7,8,9,10,11,12,13,14,15,18,19,20,21,23,24

 

(I have a feeling we will see Richard on the air a lot in September. Be sure to give him a holler even if you worked him the day before.)

 

I have listed only the folks who are getting very close (within 20 dates). I am sure there are many more who need September dates, also.

 

To see what dates you need, upload your log and check the "Online Endorsement Checker". In the "In Progress" section, click on "Target" for the 360 category and a list of needed dates will show. If you have a problem seeing that, please just let me know.

 

Let’s make 366 happen for as many as you can. Of our 2,703 members, only 41 have achieved 366. Another 6 need only 1 date, usually 2/29.

 

73,

Was pleasantly surprised to work 13 yr. old Mikey this morning with a nice signal from England. Not the youngest ham I’ve ever worked, but certainly a breath of fresh air among all the senior citizens on PSK31. 😊

 

If you see Mikey on the waterfall, give him a shout !

Re: Jay Hudak Memorial Sprint

This weekend was the World Wide Digi DX Contest sponsored by World Wide Radio Operators Foundation and the Slovenia Contest Club.  It was FT8 & FT4 only on 160, 80, 40, 20, 15, and 10.  Power classes 1500w, 100w, and 5w.  FT4 recomended subbands included 3.580 - 3.590.  Hopefully our little slice of 80m will be clear when the time comes.

Peter, NN9K #2629
 
Edited

I spent several hours last night working on a configuration problem and watching 3.580 and the band was full of FTx signals. It is going to be interesting to try and operate a PSK sprint in that area at least IMHO. Has anyone else been looking at 80-meters in the evening?

Also I has tried four different browsers and still can not access the new club website and the old PODXS 070 site still shows then next contest as 3-Day Weekend, just a bit out of date.

Greetings from central Florida -

The antenna is down and all outside stuff is stored in the garage.  I'm no longer active in ARES due to health issues, but local EmComm frequencies are programmed into the VHF/UHF rigs and the emergency J-pole in the attic is tested.  Batteries are charged.  I'm QRT on HF until Dorian decides what to do or goes some place else.
