I tried that link you gave and it got redirected to the main group.  Contest messages are still there but chats are not.

Sorry to be confused (it is soooooo easy, hahah) but is there a chat room like  netlogger/aim, or hamspots, or groups.io/chat for the event?

Than you for the hand holding!

The above chat room could use a little life during the contests!

Bob -

 

In our "General Contest Rules" page (http://www.podxs070.com/o7o-club-sponsored-contests/general-contest-rules), we state:

 

16. Unlike most “big” contests, self-spotting is allowed on 070 reflectors. There is no separate category for “assisted” stations who pay attention to spotting networks or read their email during the contest.

A chat room (on the groups.io platform) is fundamentally the same concept as the email reflector. The point of that rule was that other contests prohibit all non-radio sources of information during a contest, whether it's phone calls, DX spots, or whatever. We deliberately allow members to post to the reflector when they are doing band changes and the like--we even set up a special reflector just for that. So if someone would rather use a chat room, it's effectively the same.

 

So go ahead and set up a chat room if you'd prefer that forum.

Are we allowed to set up a chat room for the Triple Play Sprint.  I didn't see anything in the rules.  I also didn't want to do something to go against the spirt of the contest.  I thought it could be used to coordinate what band operators were using.

Any thoughts.  It may be just be more of a distraction in any case.

Re: CN98

Thank you Paul.  For the Grid, for the LoTW and the eQSL.  Yes, eQSL has a steep learning curve for /P or /M operations.  But once you get the hang of it, it kind of becomes routine.  Hang in there.  Your next /P will be much easier.  Looking forward to it!

I must apologize, I am just now getting around to uploading logs for my summer excursion to CN98.

I have successfully uploaded them and it seems to be correct on LOTW.

I have made at least one basic error on eQSL which I am now trying to sort out.

If anyone cares, LOTW is a whole heck of a lot more sensible and straightforward for this than eQSL, which is probably a fine way to do it once you get it all sorted but is something of a puzzle to get sorted to start with. There are now a fair number of new head sized dents in my shack walls.

Anyway thanks for your patience. I will get it straightened out eventually. Honest.

And for the folks who are dealing with many, many locations where they have operated portable, if you’re uploading logs to eQSL, my hat is off to you. I’ll bet you wore the edges off a few bad words along the way.

Triple Play Low Band Sprint - Tomorrow

stan W9SMR
 

The  Ø7Ø Club TRIPLE PLAY LOW BAND SPRINT  Starts Tomorrow night

 

Saturday, November 14 - 0000 UTC (Friday, Nov. 13 - 7:00 p.m. EST *)

to Monday, November 16 - 2359 UTC (Monday, Nov. 16 – 6:59 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. 



73,

Stan
