We mailed close to 250 envelopes with stickers in them, and to date, three have been returned as bad addresses.  I need to confirm the correct mailing address with the following to ensure our records are correct.

N8FL - our data has your address as RT1 Box 130a1 in Glenwood WV.  It was returned to sender.

N3UYI - our data has your address as 247 Sweet Gum Drive, Chelsea AL

WB8YXF - We have you as 3311 Galberry Rd. Chesapeake VA, it was forwarded to 233 Jessamine Pl MCGayheysville VA and returned.

Please help us update our records to show the corrrect address.  In a couple of cases, QRZ does not even match.

Howdy, y'all!  Sorry I've been a stranger....

Jim and his team of merry bandits seem to be doing an *OUTSTANDING* job of things!  I wanted to say that right out of the gate.

On the subject of grid credit whilst operating away from home - I'm pretty sure what we did when Rick was travelling was ask him to submit a "dummy" record in his log for each of the grids in which he worked.  Basically a QSO from N7WE to N7WE with the grid worked from in it.  Maybe it wasn't Rick's trip where we did that, but it was somebody...

Anyhow, y'all are a great club and things are looking up!  Keep on keeping on....

I don't know if that was ever formally documented on a rules page. That may have only been "documented" in emails.

Note that it wouldn't have been in APE rules as it applies to all grid activations, not just those in August.

30M Activity Enhancement

stan W9SMR
 

With all the growing concern of PSK-31 losing traditional frequencies, I recently contacted Don, KB9UMT, 070 #1227, the founder of the 30M Digital Group for his view.

The 30MDG has decided to try an every Sunday Night at 23:00 UTC Activity Hour to drum up some activity. If you are concerned with the ever growing intrusion by other digital modes, crank up the rig and join the party. You do not need not be a 30MDG member to join in!

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

PSK Suggested:  10.141 to 10.142 PSK 

Other Modes: 10.142 to 10.144   -  Olivia/Contestia/Dom/Thor/Thrb/etc., turn RXID/TXID on!.

And take a look at the 30MDG website. They have almost 12,000 members now: (http://www.30mdg.org/)

 

See you Sunday!

Loren, I think I have the emails in the folder, however to be on safe side, if it is an easy task, you might resend them to ensure I do not miss any.

Thanks for all you do!

APE Plans

DAVE KB3RAN 1692/381
 

I'll be operating on 20 and 40 meters mostly,  from grid square FM09sp  Green Ridge State Forest in western Maryland (Alleghany County) from Aug 3 to 7th.  (This is a date change from my previous announcement.)  I'll be camped out so ops will be often and when propagation and weather allows. I'll be solar powered and using expedient wire antennas mostly.  Will try out my 20 and 10 meter hamsticks some also.  My elevation will be +/- 1000 ft asl.  I'm hoping to get a higher elevation site but won't know that until I get there.  

Please send my your plans for your APE soon so I can get them posted on the PODSX070 webpage for all to see.  I'll be looking for APE stations to work.  I like APE to APE contacts.

August PSK31 Expedition (APE) Starts soon

DAVE KB3RAN 1692/381
 

AUGUST PSK EXPEDITION

August is just 3 weeks away.  Are you ready for an adventure?  This a perfect time to get away from home and do some radio operations.  It doesn’t have to be an elaborate affair.  The requirements are simple and are found at: http://www.podxs070.com/ape-august-psk31-expedition/ape-requirements

IMPORTANT:  The applicant should announce intentions to operate an APE at least 2 weeks before the operation to the PODSX070 club membership.  And send your plans including the following information to ape@... :  August date(s), callsign, 070#, QTH of ops, Time UTC of ops, band(s), any explanatory notes, and if your intention is to do an official APE.

For example:   My (KB3RAN) plans are to head to western Maryland to Green River State Forest and do some dispersed camping at about 1000’ elevation from Aug 1 through 5.  I’ll be operating on 20 and 40 meters PSK31 in the afternoons and evenings EST (1200-2400 UTC approx.) from a location near Flintstone (Alleghany County) MD grid square FM09sp.  I’ll entertain skeds on other bands if notified before July 30.  I may not have internet nor phone at my location but will have solar power. I plan to submit my information as an official APE expedition.  FM09sp is the least worked grid in Maryland so I hope to give lots of contacts to those who need it.

An APE does not require a lot of planning.  Are you going to a family gathering that’s over 20 miles from home?  Or going on a business trip?  Take along some radio gear, a battery or hook up to the car battery, throw up a long wire and tune it up and get on the air for an afternoon or evening.  You might be surprised at how many contacts come rolling in.

It is rumored that KC9UR will be staging their 8th Annual APE on August 21 to 23. Standby for details.

And to make it more interesting Rick Butz  N7WE along with Steve W3HF have made an Excel spreadsheet of grid squares by state with the number of contacts made from them.  The information is available at  https://070club.groups.io/g/main/files/070%20Grid%20Chase/Handy%20Top%205%20Grids-2020.pdf

There are about 30 grid squares in the US with less than five contacts.  And 4 that have never been activated.  Here’s an opportunity to get out and work a pileup when you activate a really rare grid square.  Below are some examples of grids that just are begging to be worked.  You get credit for the grid if you operate from it and others get credit when they work you.  My quick research on DN25 and DN34 shows highway access and campgrounds in the grid squares.  And public access looks pretty easy.  I’ve put these grids on my list of things to do and places to visit.

There is still a lot of activity on SOTA https://www.sota.org.uk/ and POTA  https://parksontheair.com/  to get credit for working those entities also.  Choose your favorite state or national park or a summit that needs activating.  Or go to an island and get IOTA points.  Or light up a lighthouse for International Lighthouse/Lightship weekend on Aug 23-24th.  See https://illw.net/ for details.

 

So, get those plans going and let me know how you plan to do your APE this year.  Please let me know soon what your plans are so I can share them with other PODSX070 members.  It would be nice to have a list posted of potential APE’s next week.  But get them in as soon as you can.  Send them to me at  ape@...  Thanks and I’ll see you on the waterfall.  I’ll be looking for you in August.
