Recieved a note from Chris.  He has decided to live on Chatham permenantly and has moved everything to the island.  He is active on FT8/FT4 and wondered
what he needed to get on PSK.  So I gave him the PODXS070 club website and told him what the award was about and then a list of PSK Software and
mentioned there were others.

us starting tonight (I am in the central time zone, so that will be a start at 03xxAM,
which will be Monday morning, just in time to put the coffee on.

Look for especially regular participants KK6KMU, K4VBM, W9SMR/9.
There have been lots of others participating you may see :
KB3RAN, N6MG, W4RTT,W6QP

We will show up by 0845z, but early birds may be on around 0830z.
We will cover 7.070 and 3.580 MHZ and will stay on as long as it takes
to make sure everyone has made their contacts.

Get on the "Chats" and select 24/7 Endorsement.  We usually post our acctivity
and where everyone is operating. The Chat has been a big help coordinating.

Get your coffee ready, set your alarms and cone on down.

24/7 Endorsement - thanks and encouragement

GA - Bob - K4VBM
 

Hi All,

Many thanks to Bob KK6KMU and Alan KA5VZG for putting together the schedule and being there to enable
those of us missing the many late night and early morning slots for the 24/7 endorsement to get them.  I will admit that for
some of those QSOs so far, my eyes were foggy and my brain was still asleep, but the fun and accomplishment was
always there, and I was missing all of them before this.

I know that I have filled many holes so far, and also had a number a QSOs with other members
of the 070 club which is also helping me in my LONP quest.  So nice to meet more of the club members.   Thanks to everyone that has participated so far, especially all my QSO partners!

I have a special announcement/request:

I missed last week's Friday schedule for the 0600 and 0700 UTC hour slots.

Because of that, I am going to make the effort to be on from 0630z to 0730z in an attempt to fill them and hand
them out for others that may have missed those slots.

I will be on both 40m and 80m during those times for each of those parts of the hour slot, looking for a club member.
I will also be monitoring the 070 club 24/7 groups.io chat that can be accessed by this URL:

https://070club.groups.io/g/main/chat/7056

(You do have to have a login to groups.io to access the chat,
It really helps to be in the chat to let people know you are there and what band you are currently on.)

Looking forward to seeing you during the rest of this undertaking, and thanks again to KK6KMU and KA5VZG!

73 and stay safe,

Bob Hensey

24/7 Update.
Band conditions were not great last night.  80 meters seemed better than 40meters.  QSO's with members Dave KB3RAN, Bob K4VBM,  Alan KA5VZG, Stan W9SMR, and Don KC4OBB.  I did see a few others PODXS members they were but too weak to try.  Also made contact with John from Hilo HI KH6DLK and Lew from Australia VK4KLA on 40 meters.  Glad we had the chat room or I would have missed Lew.  Thanks to Alan and Stan for pointing him out.  This week is almost over so join us if you have a chance.

I still have hours 11, 12, and 13 columns completely empty.  I know Alan and Bob stayed up to fill those hours but I just couldn't stay awake. Thanks to all who participated.  See you on the waterfall.

There have been numerous dx-peditions there, and according to Club Log, it's #76 on the most wanted DXCC list. It may be rated higher or lower on other lists. I don't know.
From Apr. 2004 until Nov. 2016, I've logged 5 separate dx-peditions, and 12 confirmed Q's via LotW. to Chatham.
Sadly, no bpsk31. I don't even know if any of the dx-peditions did any digital at all.

Re: 40 Meters QRP Calling 1925Z

Steve, if you want to try qrp to qrp, that would be fun. I'm back in town next week, love to try it.

text me at 571-225-6180 with a head's up if you want to try. I've had great success doing most all the digital modes with my qrp uBITX radio to other QRP's.  Of course, a good antenna really helps us lower power wieners.

Yep, I sure remember that one.  I corresponded with him prior to the DXpedition and waited intently for the opening.  I think that it was the 2nd or 3rd day that I got him.  And yes, he pulled up stakes early.  I can't remember the reason, but it may have been wx or logistical issues.

Hole 13 is a toughie due to the lack of PSK operators as well as prop.

Chatham Island was activated by ZL2DX in 2017 and was supposed to be there for until 2020. I only worked one PSK31 station there was ZL7LC (ZL1LC ,an 070 member) back in 2015. He was on a mini DXpedition PSK31 only. Others may have been there, but suspect they operated SSB/CW/RTTY or FT mode. Not aware of anyone else on ZL7.
