Welcome Jay!   By my count you are only the 6th member from the state of North Dakota.  That is going to make you very popular each and every time you are on air!  My log shows we have worked twice before, but will be looking for you to add to my LONP count.  Also in every 070 Contest as ND is a rare multiplier!  73, and again, Welcome!  Hope you enjoy 070 Club as much as I do.

Welcome indeed, Jay!

That process was too gruesome!

Hopefully with the efforts of K5SP and K9DWR the new member process has been vastly improved. I hope your experience with our fabulous group gets better every day!!

Looking forward to working you again, this time as a member. I need the LONP!

73,

Re: Bay Area

Byron,

I live in Oceanside CA.  In my log I have KM6CPF , David, lives in El Granada, San Mateo county.  Memeber No. 2609

Also I have a few contacts in my log  that have participated in the clubs contests that are from ARRL section EB.  KB6LFM, Bill, AB6MB Jeff,  and AA6EH , Adam.  They are not members but they might be interested.  I don't see any from the SF section in my log.  I hope that gives you a starting point.

Been to the "SF" Bay area, got to be careful not to confuse anyone, a number of times.  In-laws live in Berkeley CA.  

Good Luck,

Bob KK6KMU

2020 KC9UR POTA Portable APE Announcement

Bob KC9UR
 

It’s almost August and that means it’s time to go APE (i.e. August PSK Expedition).  Stan (W9SMR/9) and I (Bob, KC9UR) will be conducting our 8th annual APE, a “POTA Portable APE”, starting Friday, 21 Aug through Sunday, 23 Aug.  This year we will be operating from the Trine State Recreation Area in Northeast Indiana.  We look forward to contacting lots of PODXS 070 APE Hunters, grid chasers (grid EN71) and LONP seekers as well as POTA (Parks On The Air) hunters (park K-4182).  Each year Stan and I look forward to APE contacts with fellow 070 members, PSK31 enthusiasts and some DX too.  As in past years we will be operating on the 80m – 6m bands, and will be offering a nice QSL card for paper collectors as well as a really nice certificate for those who work us on 3 or more bands.  For those interested in portable operation, we highly encourage you to consider doing your own APE.  It’s lots of fun to make loads of PSK31 contacts and to be “the hunted ones”.   We will post additional information as the date approaches.
Bob, KC9UR


Re: Antarctica ??

Jerry,

the only one that counts for Hole 13 is KC4AAA ... I guess there are several other Antarctic stations.  just rarely see them. I do have a few including R1ANT on PSK31.

I just dont have the "Correct" one HI

Went through my logs last night and found I've worked a pile of Antarctica stations , but on CW, RTTY and SSB. Not a bloomin one on PSK. There are several prefixes not just the KC4AAA-AAZ,; worked 4K1B (Russian base) and R1ANT. THe are prefixes like HL8, DT8, CE9, DP, , etc. So it may be possible to have worked Anartica without knowing.

Good afternoon,

Thanks to the generous help from several members of the 070 and linuxham groups, my problem seems to have been solved!

Paul W7PBF suggested additional ferrite. Based on his advice, this article was found on the DX Engineering website, specifically addressing the RF suseptibility of the Signalink USB:
https://static.dxengineering.com/global/images/instructions/Signalink-RF-Fix.pdf
I should have mentioned this from the start. I have my USB cable choked from here to Sunday as well, which fixed a lot of my early issues, too. It’s been like that for so long, I forgot it was there. ;-)

Glad things are looking better.

Re: Continuous tones on 40 meters?

DAVE KB3RAN 1692/381
 

I'm seeing continuous tones at 7076.8, 7150.0, 7190.0 and 7188.8.  U thought it was of local origin.  I'm near a NavAir base. I see it all the time not just at night.

Continuous tones on 40 meters?

Mike W4BZM
 

Has anyone else experienced continuous, unmodulated tones at night on 40 meters?  I always get lines on the waterfall at 7071.28 and 7071.64, no modulation, unkeyed, just a true CW transmission with pretty decent SNR -- as if someone is keying  a transmitter continuously.  

Does anyone else experience this, or do I need to start hunting spurs in my receiver?

40M Firecracker Sprint Results - 2020

stan W9SMR
 

There were fireworks aplenty as 62 contesters worked to conquer the conditions and show their skills. There were 15 High Power, 27 Medium Power, 16 Low Power and 4 QRP logs submitted. This included 7 non-members, 3 of whom have already joined as members. See below.

Top Dawg and 1st Place in High Power was Steve, VA3TPS. Last year’s RC3 Rollo Cup Champion, Lee, N5SLY grabbed 2nd Place. Lee leads in the 2020 RC3 going into this contest. In 3rd Place is Bob, K8RGI,

In Medium Power1st Place went to Mary, KC4TIE. Good to see Mary back in there! In 2nd Place was Curt, K3URT and 3RD Place went to David, KR4U.

The Low Power 1st Place winner, Steve, W3HF had the second highest overall score. And Tom, W8TOM, grabbed 2nd Place while new member David, WA3LXD pulled in 3rd Place.

In the very challenging QRP category, 1st Place went to Peter, NN9K. Peter finished first in QRP in the Valentine Sprint, St. Patrick’s and PSK Fest. 2ND Place went to Rick, N7WE and 3rd Place to Dave, AB9BZ.

Winners in each category are summarized below:



As a special treat, KD6TR and N6MG were blessed with a QSO with Warren, VK4FJ of Toowoomba, Queensland, Australia. Gotta’ be a sign that better conditions are just around the corner.

These three contesters have since joined our ranks. (* Joined during Contest)
