24/7 Endorsement 12:00Z thru 15:00Z

Bob Motyl KK6KMU
 

Took a short break but trying to fill in a few more hours for my 24/7 Endorsement.  Going to be on starting at 12:30Z on 40 meters for the 12 and 13 hour blocks.  Switching over to 20 meters for the 14 and 15 hour blocks.  Bob K4VBM helped me today.  Going to try and go all week 20 Oct thru 1 Nov.  Please be on the lookout

24/7 Endorsement Chase Wednesday morning

DAVE KB3RAN 1692/381
 

I plan to be on the air tonight to work 0500UTC  through 1000UTC Wednesday time slots .  That's 0100 EST local to 0600 local for me.  I'll be working 40 and 80 meters. That will nearly wrap up Wednesday for me.  I'll probably take a couple nights off then do the same on Saturday.  Hope I can find others needing these hours to join me.

I need slots 7,8 and 9 for Wendsday morning.
I'm hesitant to put this on because I'm subject to dozing off at any time from some of the meds I take. But I will make every effort to be on.

Grey Line Propagation

Rick - N7WE
 

Now that the fall equinox is past, grey line propagation in the northern hemisphere should be getting better and lasting longer.  If you haven't tried it, it can be fun and produce some pretty amazing contacts.  Here's an article that gives a pretty good explanation of what it is and why it works.  https://www.electronics-notes.com/articles/antennas-propagation/ionospheric/greyline-propagation.php  PSK Reporter, HRD - DM780, and many other software programs will display the grey line on a world map.

Give it a try - particularly on 40m and 80m!

I’m also seeing what look like psk traces which sort of confirms that bandwidth estimate based on relative scale.

It looks like some sort of multiple frequency shift keyed signal, four tones.  If we knew the time scale in the image you could probably estimate the symbol rate.

Based on the repeated pattern I am taking a WAG and suggesting some sort of ALE?

Mike, Region 3 has digital voice on 7.070 also.  I was doing some late night and early morning QSO's on 40 meters these last three weeks and got QRM from voice stations almost every night.  Frustrating to say the least.

Hi Randy,

Looks like its either Olivia or Contestia.  What day was it?  I think the Salvation Army net runs one of the wideband modes on Saturdays.  I have seen it up the band when I have been running Hell on 14.063.

Re: Band Plan

Mike W4BZM
 

Jerry, you missed the point of my post.  Nobody was violating any rules.  SSB on 7.070 is legal (in fact, encouraged during contests) in IARU Region 1 but not in IARU Region 2.  The problem is the disagreement in band plans between the IARU regions, on a frequency that supports world-wide comm.

...and yes, like you, I often stand down during the CQ WW contests. Maybe clean up the logbook or catch up on QSL cards.

I think this weekend was an excellent demonstration that the IARU Regions need to do better coordination on band plans for digital operation in the HF bands.

I was very frustrated in trying to maintain a QSO with WB2MLY on 7.072 MHz, because we were getting QRM from voice stations in Europe working the CW SSB contest.  Out of curiosity, I looked up the IARU Region 1 band plan for 40 meters (see https://www.iaru-r1.org/wp-content/uploads/2019/08/hf_r1_bandplan.pdf)  .  It reads:

7.040 - 7.047  Preferred mode:  Narrow band modes , Usage:  Digimodes
7.047 - 7.050  Preferred mode:  Narrow band modes, Usage:  Digimodes, automatically controlled data stations (unattended)
7.060 - 7.100  Preferred mode:  All modes,  Usage :  SSB contest preferred  (7.070 "Digital voice Centre of Activity")
7.130 - 7.175  Preferred mode:  All modes,  Usage:  SSB contest preferred  (7.165 "Image Centre of Activity")
7.175 - 7.200  Preferred mode:  All modes,  Usage:  SSB contest preferred, Priority for intercontinental activity.

So while those of us in IARU Region 2 observe 7.000 to 7.125 as an RTTY/data band, and 7.072 as a PSK-31 domain, that is not the case for our European/African neighbors.  Fortunately, I haven't experienced a lot of SSB QRM on 7.072 except on international contest weekends, but it's a discrepancy I was not aware of until tonight.  I mention it because others may be as unaware as I was.

Re: Anyone for 365 endorsement ?

 

Alan, et al...
I'll start looking at 0000Z on 40m. 
But, that's 4:00 pm here, and 40m usually hasn't started to stretch out.
But, there's no doubt that with our superior operating ability, we'll make something happen. :-)
That 0600 to 0800 utc is a tough nut from here. Coffee and beignet time for you guys, is REM sleep time here. 
This is a great group.

I make it a point to check 7.070 MHZ at 0000Z every chance I get.   It's the start of the "Zulu Day" , so if no contact is made, I have the rest of the day to find one.
It's an easy way to chip away on that 365 endorsement.
If no one is there, I usually look at 80m and 20m.

Join in if you want.  It only takes one QSO to check off the day.

Also a main driver in the east, GA/Bob, K4VBM, early, persistent, all over the bands, and lots of "Chat".  Of course, thanks to all who participated, who made those dark hours quite a bit brighter.

Good luck, and I will try to catch you on some of your attempts.
