to Monday, November 16 - 0000 UTC (Sunday, Nov. 15 - 7:00 p.m. EST * )
  

Sprint Rules – This is a 3 day event. Work a 6 hour block each UTC Date. For Scoring, your 6 hour block will start with the hour you select on the Scoring page and continue for the next 6 hours. You may have only one “Block” or “Block Portion” on a given date.

 

Work each station once per band during the contest. (Same station, same band, different day is a dupe!)

 

Open to all licensed radio amateurs. Using 40M, 80M and 160M.

For Rules and detailsClick Here Triple Play Rules

 

Frequencies: - 1.807 / 1.838 MHz (Europe). 3.580, 7.070 / 7.040 / 7.035 (Europe) MHz


4 Power Categories
:

QRP < 5 W
Low < 25 W
Medium < 50 W
High < 100 W


Exchange:
 Callsign,  RST  and  State/Province/Country (SPC)    eg: “W9SMR  599  FL”


Call: “CQ 070 Sprint”


All entry logs
 must be received within 1 week after the event ends. Upload at Scorer Link shown in rules.


This event will again test your ingenuity and stealthy antenna talents. But with 3 bands to choose from, you can optimize your luck with propagation.


And it will again be worth pursuing, in order to grab that Top Band Endorsement Sticker with 20 QSOS on 160M. Only 44 of our 2,800 members have earned the Top Band Sticker. 
And 160M QSOs count as 3 points each.

 

This is one of our most popular contests. Last year, 29 logs were submitted.  Let’s see if we can beat that turnout.

Stan and Co.  I can not thank you enough for making a great experience. Using PSK is fun, operating on 160m is totally new, and working with others on a contest was simply a thrill.

I'm likely the worst contester in the world...I lack motovation, skills, experience, and determination. Yet I had a blast in the Pumkin Sprint, or as I dubbed it "more like a slow walk".

So again, many thanks.

I cannot access POWER BI, because the college license used my personal email address, and when I try to create an account it will not let me because it wants a work email, which I do not have.  So, I am stuck.

Is there any way that I can get rid of this POWER BI?  Help please!

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

24/7 - The big news in October was a unique strategy formed by Alan, KA5VZG, to enable several among us to either achieve of make great progress in the 24/7 Award. This requires making a QSO for every hour slot on every day of the week, 168 slots total. Alan proposed a strategy with 2 hour blocks, starting with 0400/0500 UTC each day of the week, over a 3 week period running thru 0800/0900 (and 1000 on request). With the enthusiastic support of Bob, KK6KMU, Bob, K4VBM and several others, 3 members qualified with all 168 slots: Alan, KA5VZG, Bob, K4VBN and David, KR4U. Getting within easy reach were Stan, W9SMR with 166, Don, KC4OBB with 164 and Bob, KK6KMU with 154 slots. Those were bleary eyed but very rewarding middle of the night hours.

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              130    
#2727             K4VBM          128
#2380             N4KP              122

#985               WB4JJJ          108    
#577               K6WRJ           118
#2017             W7RTL           104

#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
#2746             KD9DVB        93
#2658             VE3RXO         92
#1797             NA8W            90

#2703             KD2QAK        73
#471               LW2EIY          61

#2691             K5RWG          60
#1341             EA3ATJ          59
#2781             WA3LXD       59

           

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

#138               W7PSK           496
#2566             KC3FL             475

#1609             KC4OBB         455   
             
                                                           

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!!  Thank you Alan, KA5VZG, for enabling great strides on 24/7!!

Keep up the good work!

Upcoming 070 Contest:

It is not too early to start thinking about your participation in the next PODXS 070 Event, the Triple Play Low Band Sprint. This is another great opportunity to put some 160M Q’s in the log for the Top Band 20 Endorsement.

Re: Excel

I tried the save as and it messes up the formatting.  It is not yours Steve, it is the one Milt sent me to update the Member Info page which is not being updated by David Westbrooks scripts.  

I will send it to you and see if you can export to html with the formatting that is currently on the Member Info page.

As for yours, need the html showing the leaderboard and the top ten as is currently shown on the RC3 page.

Re: Excel

Stephen Melachrinos
 

Jim -

Do a "Save As" and select HTML.

Specifically, 

File -> Save As -> [select the folder where the file is to go] -> [use the pulldown for "Save as Type" to select "Web Page (*.htm, *.html)"]

Those are the exact steps in my copy of Excel 2013 on this computer, but it's similar in every copy I've used.

Jim-
Only work-around I knew of was to export the Excel file as an OpenDocumentSpreadsheet, then open the exported file in OpenOffice, from which you can Save As an HTML.   Worked with Excel 2016, not sure if it does with the latest version.  Hope this helps.

Jim,

Slightly off topic.  I use Libre Office.  Its free.  With only minor differences it is the MS Office.  I have use it for ten years and you can save to many file formants.  Just a thought.
