Any help appreciated.

Re: Special event HRD help

John Fickler
 

Hello Bill,
    I have been using HRD for some time now and I regularly add new locations when operating from camping sites etc. Go to Program Options, Callsign (My Info), Edit My Station Directly, Add Location.  Here is where you add the new operating location and the new operator callsign for the Special Event. After entering the data you may have to shut down the HRD and restart in order for it to show up in the location list. 

Regards,
John

Great write-up Bob!  Looks like the new location was a great place...and A/C too?  Does it get any better than that?  Many thanks to you and Stan for what has become one of the best parts of August for me.  Looking forward to next year.  Maybe Cycle 25 will perk up a bit by then.  GO APE!

Just worked John - N9AMI at 1458 UTC - about 14.071. 740.  He confirmed he is in DM19 in Nevada (as shown on PSK Reporter) - not at his QRZ location.  If you need DM19 - go get him!

KC9UR POTA Portable APE Tall Tale Report Posted

Bob KC9UR
 

Stan, W9SMR and I would like to thank everyone who worked us!  We had a great time and enjoyed every one of the 202 total QSOs.  In spite of the current poor propagation, a record 20 070 APE Hunters bagged us on three or more bands, and have nice certificates coming in the mail.  We also enjoyed QSOs with many POTA hunters, had a number of POTA Park-to-Park QSOs and several Park-to-Lighthouse QSOs (it was International Lighthouse Lightship Weekend).  As Stan likes to say, it's not the propagation, it's the participation - thanks so much for yours!  I've posted our "Tall Tales" report which includes pictures, log, and a listing of the certificate winners in the "APE Tall Tales" folder in the Files section.  Thanks again.

Bob, KC9UR


Re: Limited space antennas

Thanks for the feedback.  Have looked at the MyAntennas EFHW 8010 model.  It's around 130 feet long.  Might work on a long and narrow piece of property. 

Do like to run SSB now and then for QPs and such.

Chuck,
I live in an HOA controlled neighbourhood.  I run a 135 ft end fed random with 2, 15-foot counterpoise wires.  It is runup through a stand-off from my chimney at about 20 feet down to my 10-foot high fence, and around the fence line of the property.  It is invisible from the street, and seems to work well for PSK, FT8, VARA HF, and ARDOP from 80 through 6 M.  It is less effective for SSB, as it is very noisy, and, strangely enough, I get almost no NVIS off of it.  I do have some Common Mode issues on 80M with it that I am currently (pun intended) chasing.

We're looking to move sometime in the next couple of years and will need to change to antennas that can fit in a much smaller footprint.   The XYL wants some type of waterfront property, so space will be tight.  Need to give her some ideas on what is needed.  Assuming I'll be able to get a VHF / UHF on the roof somewhere.

Hoping the group can give some good suggestions based on their experience.  Like to have 80 through 10 meters, but will settle for 40 through 10.  No ideas at this point on how many trees we'd have, orientation, etc.

Member Files

Jim K5SP
 

We are progressing in our efforts to "move" more items from the hamclubs.info site.

On our website, there is a new menu item, Member Files. We will be moving more and more information to this page as time permits.

As of today, you can download a CSV file of our membership by clicking the button on the page.  This has been tested on various browsers, and no problems have been noted.   I use Firefox, and when I click the button I get a dialog box that asks if I want to open or save the file.  I have used both options, and it gets saved to my hard drive.  I also have selected to open with Excel, open with Notepad, and those options also work fine.   It has been tested on a Mac also.

Please bear in mind, that the data is for your personal use, such as setting alarms on software etc.  Please do not share the membership data with others.

Let me know if there are any issues with obtaining the data.

Now on to the next issues, which pertain to the LONP Member info page.

Re: Awards question

It appears to be a "bug" in old system. Am seeing a lot of repeats on upgrades (only enter once please as it only confuses me !)

In time it will all be fixed as David has tim to work on it.

Have been under the weather the past 2 weeks or so. Please bear with me. If anyone has questions direct them directly to me because I'm keep a huge spreadsheet of upgrades.

#APE AUGUST APE Season is over for 2020. Thanks for the support. #APE

DAVE KB3RAN 1692/381
 

I'm thinking that APE  activity was off a bit this year due to Coronavirus restrictions but the support for the 2 APE'S sure wasn't off.  There was a lot of spotting, email sharing and general support for our APE's and it was appreciated.  It's nice to know that there are stations waiting for you to get on the air so they can get the APE contact then spot it on the networks.  I'm awaiting the APE  report from KC9UR Bob  and W9SMR/9 Stan.  It should be a good one since they are so experienced in doing APE's.

I want to thank all the members who went out of their way to help with the APE  Event this year.  And looking forward to my expedition to Labrador and Newfoundland next year.  I hope you are thinking of how you can get portable next year and do your own August PSK Expedition 2021.

See you on 80 next weekend.

80m Jay Hudak Sprint

 

I think, regardless of how crowded that segment is, we should get on, and have a good time with our 80m Sprint.
Back in the day...when I was the contest manager, we used to have "New Member Jamboree's" every100 new members. The scoring was crazy!...Number of QSO's X SPC's X the sum total of all the 070 member numbers you worked = Final score, or something like that...
How else could Jerry get at least a million points? Hi Hi
It was time for another "New Member Jamboree", and Jay, N3DQU, Charlie, K8IJ and I couldn't find a clear date on the world's contest calendar. So, what wound up was the "80 Meter Sprint" becoming the "Jay Hudak 80m Sprint". For those few that wonder who he was, Jay was 070-0001, with a membership date of 9/21/2000.
Back in my hole...

N3AO

Stephen Melachrinos
 

Yesterday I worked an old friend on 40m PSK, Carter N3AO. He's relatively new to PSK, and had been trying unsuccessfully to make a contact. His signal was good, so I believe his software and radio settings are good--I think he's just not finding people. Maybe it's propagation, maybe it's his choice of bands (he was on 40m in the early afternoon), maybe it's just that there are fewer active PSK operators now than there used to be.

If anyone sees him calling CQ, please give him a call and welcome him to the PSK community. Maybe we'll even be able to recruit him to the club!

Re: 80 mtrs

 

Wasn't aware of the contest.  Hopefully we'll be in the clear next week end.  Whatever the case it looked like there was good propagation on 80.
