It was worth getting up at 0830 UTC. Managed to work Suke, JM7OLW, for a new 40m DXCC !

Now back to sleep ...

As long as I'm around this morning, if anyone needs my PODXS #1808 for LONP or whatever, give me a call on 40m at 0830 - 0900 UTC or so.

Good job Bob!
Can you send me info, or a link to "PSKinfo"?
I'm not familiar with a lot of the propagation or tracking sites.
Thanks,
Milt.

Milt.  Congrats with the updates.  I got motivated myself and built a new computer for myself.  An eight core AMD processor, 16GB of ram, and video card with four video outputs, four 24 inch monitors and cleaned up my cabling.  Now I can run FLDIGI, my logging software, pskinfo and the chat room all at the same time with no delays or computer crashes.  Should have done it years ago.  Now I have the time.

Interesting being on the far left coast with Bob & Eric and Tom.
Early & coffee for you easterners is late & Melatonin for us. :-)
See everybody later tonight, and during the week. 
I've done a lot of work in the shack, rotated radio's, a new 28" flat panel for MixW, and a new 24" flat panel for my ACLog & main frame. Gotta weed out all of the weak components...

Week one covering hours 0400-0500z and week two covering hours 0600-0700z

24/7 Endorsement - WEEK THREE starts Monday 10/19 for hour slots 0800Z and 0900Z

Bob Motyl KK6KMU
 

Reminder,

Week three, from Monday 10/19 - Sunday 10/25, starts tonight.  This week will cover the 0800Z and 0900Z hour slots.
Look at the Chat to see who is active.  To work both hours with limited sleep loss, we will concentrate on 0845Z - 0915Z.  From 0845-0859 QSO's will fill in the 0800Z slot. From 0900-0915Z the 0900 slot will be taken care of.  (a few earlybirds may be on by 0830)

Japan, New Zealand and Australia should be open on 40 and 80 meters at that time.  No promises.  Overt the last two weeks we have had a dozen or so members getting together to fill in some of those late night / early morning hours on the 24/7 Endorsement.  Come and join us.  See you on the waterfall

Solar Forecast

 

Haven't seen Tamitha doing any space weather in about two weeks so went looking for more places to catch some solar information.  Stumbled onto a website called SolarHam.  Check it out, looks like it has a link to just about anyplace that has info on solar activity.  Lots of sunspots in the past few weeks and SFI looks like it's starting to go up.  One can hope.  hi hi

JM7OLW cq'n on 20m

 

JM7OLW is booming in right now on 20 meters.
His IMD is -23 dB. 
That roughly equates to about 599+++++++

agreed, pskreporter shows i am picked up by wz7i in eastern PA at 14db, but that is it.

seeing a couple of faint traces around 10140.7, but too faint to read.

dropping off 30M for now and taking a break.

thanks to all who gave it a try.

i am putting out somewhere in the 15 to 20 watts on my little rig according to my separate power meter.  the radio gods do not appear to be smiling on 30M currently.

will try till around 1930 hoping for a contact, then drop off if no one is seen.

Our last 24/7 Endorsement meet for week 2 is Sunday Oct 18, 2020 from 06:45 - 07:15 UTC.  I will be on at 06:30 UTC for those early birds.

Week 3 will start Monday Oct 19, 2020 from 08:45 - 09:15 UTC.  Be aware that New Zealand, Australia and Japan should be open on 40 and 80 meters at that time. 
So far the regulars have been Alan KA5VZG, Bob K4VBM, Randy W4RTT and Stan W9SMR.  Milt N6MG, Dave KB3RAN, and N5SLY Lee have also shown up a few times.

Please come and join the fun.  I hope I got the information right.  Correct me if I'm wrong.
