Chat room availability

Peter, NN9K #2629
 

I may have missed a reference to this website and chat room in the past. It is  free and easy to use--http://n8fq.org/sked/index.php?board=fists. Even thought the link indicated FISTS look at the room listing on the right side and you will find a PODXS room and there are a couple of familiar calls that have used it.

For me this style of room is much easier to use so whenever I get the urge to PSK you most likely see me in the room.

Just a thought, back to my straight key!

Milt,

How would I know? After my bedtime. I have no experience in that time-zone.

I think KA5VZG and KK6KMU and the others start on 40M then QSY as needed.

I'm going to give it a try. The T-storms are still on their way here now. Should clear up around 10 p.m. my time.

So, tnx fer the encouragement and I hope to see you tomorrow morning.

73, Stay Safe

Stan

Stan, I think it's totally do-able.
What band is your best to the left coast in those time slots? 30m?, 40m?, 75m?

Bob, Alan et. al.,

I am hoping to get on. I need 3 a.m. (EDT) slots all week long and some 2 a.m.'s along the way.

But, T-Storms coming thru soon. Hopefully expected to clear after 10 p.m. Will need to reconnect my Kluge Inv-L after they pass through.

Fantastic you almost grabbed the VK4. Maybe tonite. GL!!

I had a few extra bonus contacts last night during our 24/7 Endorsement meet. KI7VLV Dave from Washington, KM6UGZ Sam California, and AA2MA Mark from Alabama. All of them were amazed that someone was calling CQ late that night / early tat morning. Also had VK4KLA from Australia answer my call but could not complete the QSO. All things considered a successful 24/7 get together. Hope to see yo tonight from 0645-0715 UTC.

Thanks to Alan KA5VZG, Bob K4VBM and Randy W4RTT for getting up in the middle of the night. Hope to see Stan W9SMR tonight too.

Re: Pumpkin Upload

David, K9DWR
 

I’ll need more specific information to troubleshoot.

In your case, Bob; I have an entry for KF3AA, so it looks like your upload was successful. What, exactly, are you seeing that makes you think it didn’t work?

Barry, what are you seeing? I do NOT see an upload entry for yours, so something is definitely off in your case, but I need screenshots, error output, etc to see what’s going on.

Was a busy weekend

GA - Bob - K4VBM
 

With all the QSO parties, and the 070 160m contest, it has been a very busy radio weekend for me.
I am also participating in the late night 24/7 "fill-in-the-holes" with KK6KMU, Bob, KA5VZG, and Alan, which has been a lot of fun with some other showing up also making it a fun time except for being tired the next morning hi hi, and tonite we do later slots
(don't worry guys, I am going to force myself to wake back up and get on the radio).

I was in the shack just a little while ago collecting log files so I could start the process of uploading to the myriad of places
they all need to go, and decided to call CQ PSK31 on a totally dead 40m band, and someone came back but I couldn't decode,
so I sent my macro about "No copy PSE increase power if possible", and the next transmission was quite readable
and the other OP said he was already at max power and thanked me for trying.

Well, it turned into a nice rag chew QSO with Jay, WD0EGC, who is a retired researcher still working on some things related to soybean diseases (he told me to Google his name and I could read all about it).  By the way, he was in Fargo, ND, and one
of the newer club members.  We are close to the same age among other things.

This is exactly what I love about ham radio.  I needed ND for PSK31, and it just happens.  Thanks, Jay - looking forward
to some more and longer ragchews.

Don't hesitate to call CQ on a dead band - YOU NEVER KNOW WHAT MAY HAPPEN after the 2nd CQ call . . .

73 all and stay safe,

Bob Hensey

24/7 Endorsement - WEEK TWO starts Monday 10/12 for hour slots 0600Z and 0700Z

Alan - KA5VZG
 

Week one had plenty of activity on 7.070 and 3.580 MHZ.  20m was checked, but no activity was observed, so we mainly stuck to 40m and 80m.
Using the Chat (24/7 Endorsement) that Bob/KK6KMU set up made things go quickly and easily. (check an earlier post abt 24/7 for instructions)

Week two, from Monday 10/12 - Sunday 10/18, starts tonight.  This week will cover the 0600Z and 0700Z hour slots.
Look at the Chat to see who is active.  To work both hours with limited sleep loss, we will concentrate on 0645Z - 0715Z.  From 0645-0659 QSO's will fill in the 0600Z slot. From 0700-0715Z the 0700 slot will be taken care of.  (a few earlybirds may be on by 0630)

On Monday 10/12, I will also check 80m and 40m to see if anyone needs 0400Z or 0500Z time slots and may have missed the opportunity on the first run.

WEEK TWO 24/7 endorsement hour slots 0600Z and 0700Z are our targets, pse join in :-)

In spite of the lousy propagation conditions recently, we are showing some good gains in member Endorsements. Having several contests has helped also.

LONP - To qualify for LONP, 100 QSOs with fellow members are required. As you are aware, we are struggling with issues on the Endorsement web page that limits our timely approval of Endorsements. Be sure to upload your entire log each time.


Jerry, N9AVY, has been fighting an uphill battle with our balky Endorsement Checker trying to validate and approve candidates for LONP. Here is a most recent list of those who have submitted logbooks containing 100 or more QSOs since January 1, 2020.


Note that these are not yet officially approved:

#2618 KD6TR 180
#2722 N3XL 111
#2727 K4VBM 102
#985 WB4JJJ 102
#577 K6WRJ 118
#2692 YV4YY 100


We also have an excited pack of LONP Seekers in hot pursuit of this traditional first rights award. If you see them, give them a call and spot them on PSKReporter and our reflector:


#2741 WA4RXK 98
#2658 VE3RXO 84
#2703 KD2QAK 73
#471 LW2EIY 61
#2691 K5RWG* 60
#1341 EA3ATJ 59
#2781 WA3LXD 59


*Rich, K5RWG joined 5/31/19. After our QSO on Sept. 23 he agreed to make his first Endorsement Checker upload. Along with his 60 QSOs toward LONP, Rich earned 7 other Endorsements. That included his Ragchewers 3/30. He’s a natural at that skill.


And in close pursuit of the next major Honor Roll level at 500 QSOs are:

#138 W7PSK 496
#2566 KC3EL 474
#1609 KC4OBB 446


And then there are the Super Achievers with more than 1,000 member QSOs:

1 #0025 W3HF 1650
2 #0777 NO8R 1537
3 #0815 K8TOM 1258
4 #0454 N9AVY 1017



Congratulations to all!

Many more Endorsements were earned, far too many to list. But we applaud the continuing efforts of all to reach for the sky!!

Keep up the good work!


Upcoming 070 Contest: Check your HOA rules for loopholes and string out that long-long-wire!
