Eric,

It's funny how PODXS changes your operating priorities.  I never paid attention to grids before, but now if a station is portable or mobile my first question is " What is your grid?"  Can't always trust the one QRZ shows.

John,

I've got a bunch of MM contacts with no grid.  That's too bad.  I love to get those totally random, never-to-be-worked again grids.

This group has made me grid-conscious like I've never been before.  The CQ VHF contest is this weekend and I'm hoping to fill in a few on 6m.  I just put up a M2 6M3 for the occasion.

Steve,

Nice catch on the ZD8JA contact.  I only have one ZD8 in my log.  ZD8Z on Ascension Island.

I've done a fair amount of multi-day regattas and boat deliveries and I really enjoy the middle watches I've done.  Something about being out of sight of land in the middle of the night at the helm that can be magic.  It can also be pretty miserable sometimes, too.

Anyway we had a bit to talk about given our maritime experiences.  We'd both read John McPhee's "Waiting for a Ship" and we talked about that.  Fun stuff, this PSK.

Twice--once in 2003 when he was somewhere (FL26) in the Atlantic, and then again in 2014 during a contest (!) and I'm not sure where he was.

Also worked him a few times as ZD8JA, as well as stateside in multiple states.

Hi All,

One night last March I couldn't sleep so I got up in the wee hours and
checked out the waterfall on 40m.  I had the good fortune to catch up
with Jeremy N1ZZZ - 070#50.

He was MM in the South China Sea as master on a container ship. We had a
nice, long QSO and it was one of the reasons I love PSK.

Anybody else ever catch N1ZZZ at sea?

Many of you have already received your envelopes with the stickers in them. 

We mailed out over 150 large envelopes with certificates all over the world.  Only one of them has returned, and that is because I blew W7OXB address.

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.

Thanks in advance,

How about 40 right now? I'm afraid we're too close for 20, and 40 will go long very soon (if not already).

Good evening folks. 
It has been so good to be back on PSK.  I had some issues with my HRD that kept DM780 from functioning properly, however, I FIXED it this past weekend.
I'll be working 20 and 40 tonight if anyone would like to get me in the log.  I need some stickers!!   Hihi.

I hope everyone is doing well and staying safe.

Your welcome, Dave.   It took a lot of effort to get everything caught up, stickers and certificates mailed, and we are now up to date on member benefits. 

Thanks to all for your patience while the backlog was being sorted out and removed.  We will continue to work hard for this, the best PSK club in existence.

Many thanks to Jeff W3WMU, and Bob KK6KMU for taking the many sheets of stickers, cutting them out appropriately, putting them in envelopes, stamping, and mailing.   Your great work is not unnoticed, nor is it not vastly appreciated.  It's members like you that go above and beyond that keeps the club going.
