Well the truth always comes out!  I flunked Geography.  Or was that Geology?  Probably both!  I get by with a little help from my friends.  Thanks guys!

Enjoyed working some old friends and some new ones in the first leg of the contest last night.  Stayed on past 10 PM EST in hopes of picking up some west coast stations.  Other than Bob - KK6KMU - that I worked on 40m as soon as I got on (about 4:30 PM his time) the furthest west I worked was Ohio.  Maybe it was just Friday night and our west coast friends were busy with other things or maybe it was just bad prop.  Do hope the prop cooperates tonight and I can work some more stations west of the Mississippi.  CU on the waterfall this evening, 73

Re: 80m

 

40 mtrs wasn't all that great but wow on 80.  Haven't seen that many traces on 80 in a long time.  Only one q on 160.

I could hear a few, but could not be heard, guess it’s a bust for me this year.  At least I got to see some traces for a change.

Re: Club Crisis

K7DWI Art
 

I am so sorry to hear of these difficulties. I wish I could help, but I am trying to do what I can to keep the club I have participated in and worked for (over 35 years) survive as well.
http://www.swotrc.net/TheSWOTRCHP.aspx
https://groups.io/g/SWOTRadioClub
The Sidewinders On Two Radio Club (SWOT a 2 Meter SSB Interest Group), also has had its ups and downs over the years. We have been blessed with a nice endowment to stay afloat, but time, Silent Keys, changed interests and few big egos have taken a toll.

I have been a NCS, Chairman, Bulletin Editor, Yahoo and Groups.io Moderator and Group Owner and Website Caretaker (hate term Webmaster) on more than one occasion over the years.
Many times I want to walk away from them, but my love of that part of the hobby keeps me suffering and going back to help. This was all done during 2 XYL's, 5 jobs, 2 career changes and 3 home moves.

I knew I was in trouble when I talked to a well-known weak signal operator at a Hamfest and in discussion he said, "What can SWOT do for me?".
When not working 2 Meter Es, Tropo and Meteor Scatter QSO's, I was a longtime participant in a group called PropNet. For 7 years (2005-2011) on 10 Meters alone, I copied 90,000 PropNet PSK31 packets, heard all states, over 30 countries and my transmitted packets were copied in the 10's of 1000's. I wrote 2 papers, multiple overviews. recorded interviews, Blog posts and presentations on my findings. My efforts are just dust in the wind :)  No one, including PropNet would do anything or share with others my efforts.

I suggest the powers that be here get together and make a long term plan and keep it simple. I think SKCC (Straight Key Century Club) has done a fine job keeping interest up. 

Another suggestion is to strongly support other groups of like interest (if they still exist).  Together you stand, divided you fall.... and add Fail.
Be inclusive, not exclusive and get others groups to do the same. Tough road in this climate, but hopefully we can salvage a good group in this hobby.
Good luck.

Re: Grids

Rick - N7WE
 

Jerry and all-
I was just using
 Amateur Radio Ham Radio Maidenhead Grid Square Locator Map - http://www.levinecentral.com/ham/grid_square.php - and came across a feature that seems new...well, new to me anyway.   If you use lookup by callsign, and there is a conflict between what is reported on QRZ.com and the grid Levinecentral computes, it shows both, but the QRZ is shown in red!  Try it by looking up N7JYX.  Very very helpful for those of us chasing grids!

Re: 070 Club Revival

David, K9DWR
 

I intend to put the work that I started in python for adif parsing and endorsement checking into a GitHub repo, so anyone can access/contribute to it. What I have right now is just a rough pass at a couple smaller awards as a POC. I’m still trying to decide exactly what format to use for the data, etc.

One thing we need to start on, besides getting the manual scoring setup, is that everyone that has a current task such as membership, awards, etc., needs to document what they do, and how they do it. There are many jobs being done that should a member no longer be able to perform, that are not documented to make it easy for a replacement to take on the task, call it an SOP if you wish, but it needs to be done.

THANK YOU! to everybody who stepped up. I would love to contribute some time, but between having a job, and being on the board of our local club (and being very active in supporting the club activities), I just don't have any time left to contribute. I will however continue to advertise the 070 club and it's activities whenever I get a chance (e.g. tomorrow for a presentation mainly about WSPR and FT8, where I will shoehorn in a plug for PSK31 :) )

Thanks again,
