Trophy Case

 

I was on the endorsement checker page and clicked on the Trophy Case link and came up with a strange page.  Just wondering if that is supposed to be there.

Sorry to hear that Dick. I bet you both are disappointed.  But there is always later.  Please post here when you will be activating those POTA.  I'll look for you, and as long as we aren't too close together, we should be able to make contact.

No Fall Trip this Year

Richard Rohrer
 

Due to the pandemic looks like our usually fall trip to the West is canceled this year.  Looks like this fall will be spent in FL doing Parks on the Air from some of the less visited places.

20mtrs was good yesterday afternoon, worked a couple of EU stations before diner.

RESULTS FROM THE JAY HUDAK MEMORIAL 80M SPRINT – 2020

stan W9SMR
 

This year there were 44 logs submitted - up from last year’s 31 logs. There were 13 High Power, 15 Medium Power, 14 Low Power and 2 QRP logs.

Top Dawg and First place in High Power was Bob, KF3AA of Huntingtown, MD, with 36 QSOs, 17 States and 684 points. Bob upped his game this year, having finished in 3rd place last year. With this win, he moves from 9th to 7th place in the RC3 Championship.

High Power – Second Place was grabbed by Lee, N5SLY of Sherman, TX with 442 points.  Lee currently holds 1st place in the RC3 competition. And Third Place went to Darl, NA8W of Findlay, OH with 432 points.

Medium Power - First place was John, KC3FL of Inverness, FL with 32 QSOs, 16 States and 544 points. John currently holds 2nd place in the RC3 competition.


Medium Power
- Second Place was Curt, K3URT of Harrisburg, PA with 384 points.  Third place - Medium Power was Bob, K8RGI of Independence, OH, with 345 points.

Low Power First Place, Steve, W3HF, of Collegeville, PA with 36 QSO’s, 16 States and 648 points. Steve moves from 4th to 3rd place in the RC3 competition.

Low Power - Second Place, Mark, K2EXE of Skaneateles, NY had 378 points. Third Place,Dave, KB3RAN (APE Coordinator), of Lusby, MD had 252 points.

 


QRP
First Place
was Peter, NN9K of Colona, IL with 17 QSO’s, 13 States and 255 points.  2nd Place was Rick, N7WE of Leesburg, FL with 15 QSO’s, 9 States and 150 points.  Their performance with less than 5 watts under present propagation conditions on noisy 80M was outstanding.



We again are deeply indebted to David, K9DWR, who established the upload link and parsed the contest results. Thank You, David!

The new “All Amateurs Welcome” policy continues to enhance our overall experience. We had 5 non-members submit logs. A special welcome to Steve, AA8SW of Cincinnati, OH; Justin, AB3E of Baltimore, MD; Harold, K7HPN of Phoenix, AZ; Carter, N3AO, of Blacksburg, VA.; and Art, NN9C of  Waukesha, WI. We hope to see them as new members soon. If you see them on the air, please welcome them and thank them for their participation. Note that the Top Dawg Certificate and Rollo Dog Tag will be reserved exclusively for members.

Thanks to all who submitted logs.  Stickers will be in the next mailing.  Complete results are available by clicking 80M Sprint - Full Log Results


And it is not too early to start thinking about your participation in the next PODXS 070 Event. Check your long-wire or make a plan for a temporary stealth antenna if your HOA seems to be dead set against any wires outside.
This is a great opportunity to put some 160m Q’s in the log for the Top Band Endorsement.

Re: PSK31 Freq's

Stephen Melachrinos
 

Bill is exactly correct. The .15 is the giveaway, for precisely the reason that he states.

This is from way back in 1999, when PSK first came out (and PSK31 was the only variant). By 2000, new software had come out (DigiPan was one of the first) that did the tuning in the software instead of the hardware, so the "down to the Hz" went away. You can read about all of these "new" developments in Rick Palm's "PSK31 2000{ article in May 2000 QST if you search the QST archives.

Subject: Re: [070Club] PSK31 Freq's

With most radios and software setup using a 3kc waterfall bandwidth setting the radio at 14.070150 leaves a bandwidth of 2.850kc in our normal range so it is a very small difference on 20M.  40M is 10kc off the current range so nothing would be seen of PSK there.  Just a huge difference between current use of a radio setting and the waterfall using the 3kc bandwidth and then when you had no bandwidth.

The endorsement checker that does the awards is located on hamclubs.info.  We are fully aware of the issue, however we do not own the software, cannot access the source code, and cannot fix it.  The software is owned by an individual that is no longer maintaining any of the software on that particular server.

David K9DWR is working on replacement software but his time is limited.  As you can imagine with all the various types of awards that we have, creating a program program that will accept your adif submission, parse it, and then check the entire log for every possible award is a daunting task. We will get it done, but it is going to take time. 

Right now, the only members working on the software are myself, K9DWR (David), and K4RJD (Richard).  So far, we have created a new online membership application, created the software that displays the latest members, and the recent donors for display on the website.  Currently besides the endorsement checker, Richard is working on moving all of our data into a MySql database, and I am working on the website and generating some Google Web Apps to retrieve data. (the membership info in CSV is one thing, now working on recreating the LONP page).   Some of our software issues cannot be "fixed" until we have the new endorsement checker working.

Please be patient, we are working hard in the the background (as time permits) to get everything off of hamclubs.info and onto the server that hosts podxs070.com.

If you know of any Python, Javascript, JSON, software gurus, have them volunteer to assist.

A while back, I pointed out that my award submissions for approval were being reset and I had to re-apply for them over and over.

Well, I just realized that the trigger for that happening is when you upload your latest .ADI file.  Somewhere in the processing for that new file, awards that have already been achieved and submitted (marked in ORANGE) are being reset to the un-submitted state (GREEN).

Just have your programmer look at the logic for processing a newly uploaded .ADI file.
It should NOT be resetting any awards that have already been applied for and marked submitted.

Q.E.D.
