Hi John,

I checked and I have not make a contact on 30mtrs with you.  I was going to change my 30mtr antenna for a 40mtr, but I will leave it up for today and see if we can make contact.  Will look for you around 2130.

Re: Christmas Day Contacts

Somehow I missed that there was an event on Christmas Day.   I actually did a POTA activation that morning, and did have two PSK contacts...
KB3RAN and KC4OBB

Could have done more if I was paying attention!  Hi HI!

We believe the LONP problems are related to the scripts that drive the membership lists. And these scripts (I believe) were among the first to "fail" when Google deprecated the API that was being used. (I'm not a programmer, but that sounded pretty good, didn't it?)

I'm not sure I said it correctly, but here's a layman's description:

A lot (if not all) of the club's records were/are kept in Google Sheets. These records were updated using scripts written using a Google-defined Application Programming Interface (API). Google announced late in 2019 that they would be modifying the API for Google Sheets, and that meant that certain features of the scripting language would be changing. No one really knew how many of the scripts would be affected, and we've seen some (but not all) of the features fail since the date of the change. One of the largest was that the automated membership routines stopped working. An alternate method was created to accept member applications, but it is not updating certain member files. Some of the artifacts of that are the list of members within the LONP section of the web site--that ends at 2786 even though we are up to 2813 now. One of the consequences of this (we believe) is that the LONP checker is not using the current member list. So no one is getting credit for members above #2786, and members who themselves joined after 2786 get no credit at all (since the database being used doesn't even show them as members). 

So in your particular case, I'll guess that 14 of the member contacts you have in your 1558 total are with members above 2786. (That's comparable to what I have, too.) But since the checker doesn't know about these new members, you don't get the credit. Until we get the code re-written, processing a LONP application will have to include a manual process to credit members above 2786.

This doesn't explain, though, why your LONP 1500 keeps showing up. That's probably another defect in the code somewhere.

I've seen your LONP 1500 maybe 3 times in last week or so. Don't click on it any more, please !  It just generates bogus reports.   The checker is ailing and hopefully will be working as it should sometime in 2021.   2020 was not a good year.

Yeah, it’s interesting...whenever I upload to the awards checker, it tells me that I have a new award which is LONP 1500, so I submit it.  I also have 1558 member numbers but the checker program says I only have 1445.

Re: Christmas Day Contacts

Ken N6PCD
 

I gotta say, I’m noticing a definite advantage in hearing and working stations now that we’ve moved to SW Missouri. I used to get on the air several times a week when we lived in SoCal and couldn’t beg, borrow, or steal a PSK contact, even with much CQing. Admittedly the solar cycle had bottomed out, but it wasn’t a good place to try to operate PSK31 from at the time.

That’s a great part of all the reason I got involved in the FT modes. Their ability to pull signals out from way down in the mud kept me operating, especially as I lived in a townhouse with CC&R’s to deal with.

Glad to be back operating PSK again!

John, KC3FL wins 2020 RC3 Series Award

stan W9SMR
 

The results are in for the 2020 Rollo Cup Contest Championship Series annual competition, and John, KC3FL has blazed a torrid track to the top of the pile. John seemed to be on every band simultaneously and beating everyone to the punch. Coming from behind Lee, N5SLY by 16 points out of 790 after the Great Pumpkin 160M Sprint, John took a 6 point lead in the Triple Play Low Band Sprint and completed the challenge in the Doubleheader Low Band Sprint with a 28 point lead with 1,034 points. As close to neck-and-neck as one can imagine.

 

Ever the gentleman, Lee, N5SLY congratulated John minutes after the results were announced. Lee won the 2019 RC3 by a resounding 228 points. The most compelling reason for the final result in 2020 may be that Lee did not operate on 160M for any of these contests. Will that situation change in 2021?

1st place RC3 receives a special certificate, a Rollo Dog Tag, and a silver Revere Cup trophy. 2nd and 3rd places receive a special certificate and a Rollo Dog Tag, and 4th – 10th places receive certificates.

Congrats to all competitors and I cannot wait to see how we all do in 2021!

Jerry,

From what I have seen those reports are generated by programs like DM-780.  They fail to discriminate between empty rails and whatever else they may be receiving at any given time, so I think they are pretty meaningless.  For instance: right now I have DM-780 on 20m and when I put the cursor on the background with no signals, DM-780 reports -30db IMD and a 32db s/n.  Those would be good numbers on an actual signal, but utterly meaningless on background noise.

I see stations giving out S/N  and IMD reports.  Tend to ignore them, but have always wondered if they really have any value or are just filler.   
 
If a station can make contact with me that's usually good enough for me.  If someone gets a 599 report from me, it's because the 599 is given to everyone and I seldom deviate from that. (No one gets offended that way, ha-ha !)

The next time someone gives you an IMD auto report gently
ask them to explain what it means and over time wind them up,
explaining any good ham should know exactly what his signal report comprises of.
I once asked a fellow what I might be able to adjust to get my IMD from -32 to a much
better report of -1 or zero.
