Dick - Don't know where you are stopping for the night, but if it is DL89 and you are anywhere near Terlingua, we recommend dinner at the Starlight Theater Restuarant and Saloon.  Opens at 5 (or used to) and it is almost Dia de los Muertos!  Food is so-so, but it is quite the experience!

Re: KC3EF/m DM70

If you’re in TX, then you might be too close to KC3EF/m who is also in TX.  That’s the way propagation works. You can copy stations thousands of miles away, but stations who are a hundred miles or so are not heard.  That’s a lesson I learned many long years ago.

 

As KC3EF/m approaches me,  I’ll probably not see him on waterfall which is unfortunate because I need some grids in MO & LA.

Haven't seen him at all today.  Although I have seen the Belgium, Swiss and Italian stations!   Can't reach them back, but...

We are heading from Van Horn, TX down to Big Bend and then back up to Ft Stockton, TX.  Grids are DM70, DM80, & DL89.  I will post when we are leaving the motel and if I have coverage email and/or text when we are getting into grids.  Anyone needed these grids would you please send me a reminder so I can call you specifically.

Correct. I don't think a minivan is the right vehicle for that grid, hi hi.

Re: Club Log report

Rick, I agree with you on all of the bells and whistles in new cars.  Seems like drivers should be paying attention to the road.  The only feature we have found interesting is the park assist.  Our 2012 Ford Escape was equipped with it and it would put the car in to a space with no problem. 

Look for me tomorrow in Big Bend.

That’s why I bought a 2008 van this summer without all those doodads. 

 

This will probably be the last vehicle I buy…  I think.

 

I prefer PSK over all the FT modes and I never have used them.

WARNING!  - I'm grumpy today!

I will only buy a used car - because I don't want Forward Collision Warning, Lane Departure Warning, Automatic Emergency Braking, Pedestrian Automatic Emergency Braking, Rear Automatic Emergency Braking, Rear Cross Traffic Alert, Lane Centering Assist, Adaptive Cruise Control, Traffic Jam Assist, or Self-Parking.  Tried them, don't like them.  When I can't pay attention enough to stay in my lane, step on the brake when the car in front slows, look behind me before backing, or parallel park, I'll turn in my driver's license.  I like to DRIVE!

I use PSK31 for the same reason.  You should use whatever you like.

There are days I see lots of PSK stations, and days I see NO ONE!
But I still prefer PSK to all modes of HF.
I do defect over to FT8 once in a while just to see if it still works.
It is always full of quickies.
During the Chase I did use the text function to chat more with some stations, but most don't care to.
FT8 is good for grid/county chasers and some contest.  Glad we have the different modes.
But PSK is my focus.  HI HI
Interesting numbers there though Jerry, thanks for sharing.
Now we need to keep encouraging others to get on PSK and ragchew!

Hi yep, I have moved from psk to ft8 mainly due to the software, I use wxjt all included with logging and  using grid mapper it all connects, now if it  included psk i would use that mode like a shot
