So this morning I went to check a couple stations I had worked and the stupid software asked me for my name, so I foolishly did so.   To my horror when I went to access database, everything was gone !!!   Got that feeling of panic ,  nausea and that sinking feeling.   Several attempts were unsuccessful.   Finally, out of desperation, I checked for the file and managed to find it …oh joy !!! 

 

Not exactly sure what happened, but I did manage to recover file by “dumb luck”. Now to put it someplace really safe. 

 

There is joy in Mudville !

Thanks Rick !

 

Nthing special happened after making 950… didn’t hear any singing from on high… no fireworks … no parades.. nada !  😊 

 

Many of those 950 came from working PODXS contests/sprints , chasing WTW over the years and working on other endorsements. Anyone can do it (or come close) given decent propagation and a resurgence of PSK31 activity (Boo, FT modes !).

Congrats Jerry!  Making the 950 level on LONP is something to be proud of and something I'll never achieve.  But I'll keep trying!  You are in rare company on the LONP All Time List!

Thought it was rough going to the last 50 and was beginning to have my doubts of ever going beyond that because of poor propagation.  Oh ye of little faith !   Put in an LONP upgrade a few minutes ago and bam !  I had 2 more new LONPs on the way to next plateau !!!

 

Hope this will be encouragement to others who feel like propagation is lousy and they can’t make contacts. Ya gotta get out there and rattle the KiloHertz by calling lots of “CQ’s”.  There are stations out there waiting to answer but they need to hear someone .   I think the old 10-10 Net motto applies here … “If you want to get results, you have to make calls !”.  (Just had to borrow that one.)

 

I usually make a few calls the first is usually a 2 x 3 CQ (cq cq cq de  n9avy n9avy and repeated again.  Longer calls are usually just double that to give others a chance to find me.) It seems to work sometimes. Try whatever works and don’t be afraid to change your CQs. Do whatever it takes to make contacts, but don’t offer money, hi !

 

Good luck and hope to see y’all on the air !

Welcome Charles!  I was one of the lucky 16 to be able to put you in the log for the Triple Play.  So a big thank you as well as the welcome.  Hope to work you in the Double Play coming up later this month. 73,

Welcome, indeed! So please that you decided to join us officially.

Participants in our recent Triple Play Low Band Sprint owe you a nod of appreciation. As the only non-member participating and submitting a log, you provided 16 much need QSOs to members.

And as you mentioned in our recent email exchange: " I found the PODXS contest to be most enjoyable — I was both surprised and pleased that the other chaps often wanted to chat for a moment rather than just giving me the basic exchange report and hurrying on their way to the next QSO."

This stands out as the reason we have the very best digital radio club in the world!!

Welcome aboard and we'll be looking for VA3TTB in the upcoming Doubleheader Triple Play Low Band Sprint on December 13 to 15.

ALERT - 366 Chasers - DECEMBER

ALERT - 366 Chasers - DECEMBER

Several 366 Award chasing folks need some QSOs on December 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 (#).


R6KEEYuri (2*) – 12/15

K4ARE, Lewis   (7) - 12/22, 12/23, 12/24, 12/25, 12/26, 12/27

S56IPS, Petelinc  (9) - 12/09, 12/12, 12/16, 12/19, 12/22, 12/27

 

Congrats to Steve, VA3TPS who completed his 366 on November 11.

 

Speaking of Leap Day, 6 members need only 2/29F8BFU, M5PLY, SA7BXU, WM4B, WB8YXF and KE0GHU. No doubt, lots of other folks need the infamous Leap Day, also!

 

Of our 2,711 members, only 44 have achieved 366.

To see what dates you need, upload your full 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.

I have listed only the folks who are getting very close (within 20 dates). I am sure there are many more who need December dates, also. Even if you have worked a fellow member before, please answer that CQ. Let’s make 366 happen for as many as you can.

 

(*) Yuri may have gotten his needed QSO of November 26, but not uploaded his log yet.



73,

Stan

But you can copy JT's email from Jim's original welcome. ( KI0HZ@HOTMAIL.COM )

And I have sent him (and all new members) a "User's Manual" to encourage joining the groups.io Reflector and explain our Endorsement upload process, etc

I also wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving.  Have to be careful not to say “Happy Turkey Day” on PSK31 because MixW puts a Turkish flag after that statement, hi, hi !

 

Hope this group stays around for a few more years.

Great to see your post Paul.  And a very Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours.  I often think about all those Qs when I was on the Farewell Tour out west.  You were one of the regulars!  And as far as I know, you are still the only 070 member  to have completed 365 TWICE!  God Bless!
