Hello. I seem to recall a discussion on how to have HRD identify club members. As I get older each day I realize margin of error increases on what I think I recall 😀if there is such a feature would appreciate some info.

Winter Field Day Logging

Steve VA3FLF/KM4FLF
 

I have been drafted as WFD Coordinator again for our club. I am recommended N3FJP for logging since we are going to do the aggregate score exception for clubs and groups.

Some of the guys are not  fans of N2FJP so I am checking different logging programs. I have a question about N1MM if anyone is a user.

I see that N1MM does not have WFD template but there is an user defined add on WFDA2RTTY. Does this template score the Cabrillo with the points formula or does the operator have to manually total scores?

I suppose anyone could edit their Cabrillo but it would seem easier to me to use a program that does that for you, thus N3FJP.  Just trying to find an alternative to those that swim upstream.

2021 RC3 Championship Standings

stan W9SMR
 

The intense competition for Top Dawg in the Rollo Cup Contest Championship (RC3) has begun, with Steve, VA3TPS, taking an early, if narrow, lead after completion of our first Contest of 2021, the PSKFest.

The table below shows the Top Ten finishers since the award’s introduction in 2019. We will long remember the intense battle between Lee, N5SLY, winner of the 2019 award and John, KC3FL for the 2020 RC3 Top Dawg. Congrats to all our Contest warriors!



The Rollo Cup Contest Championship was initiated by our former Executive Director, Matt, AK4MK, to “promote more participation in each Club contest and recognize outstanding efforts throughout the entire contest season”.

The Top Dawg will receive a special certificate, a Rollo Dog Tag, and an Engraved Silver Revere Cup Trophy.

Check out the rules at: RC3 Rules


We hope you enjoy this “Race for the Rollo Cup!”

 

73,
Stan

Re: 7300

John Kirby
 

 7300 USB PORT

Comming from a Yeasu (with two COM ports) my 7300 learning curve was different

I use N1MM+ Logger
Of course N1MM+ can run most digital modes plus SSB voice from ONLY the PC FUNCTION KEYS ... never touch the xcvr mic ... such a delight :>)
 
Your external application (n1mm in my case) should be configured first to include 7300ComPort and your choice of 7300 PTT and or CW key method  via RTS or DTR

My 7300 CW setup through USB port:
press 7300 MENU
press SET then
press Connectors
from CONNECTORS goto ... USB SEND/Keying
press USB SEND/Keying then
press USB Keying (CW)  RTS (or your choice) then
press "EXIT" 4 times back to main freq mode waterfall display
then  press CW Mode
from here "CWSend" drop window and function keys only key speaker audio (practice mode ) NO RF OUTPUT yet
For RF OUTPUT press 7300 front panel VOX/BK-IN

Note the front panel VOX/BK-IN pushbutton must be toggled each time 7300 powers up for a new session

Also note that IF or WHEN the 7300 goes into 'sleep' mode THAT wakeup is not consistent and sometimes you must power 7300 FRONT PANEL off and back on ...
... DO NOT recycle dc power from your external power supply just makes matters worse

RTFM for proper ALC set up...else you 'got distortion' each time ALC clamp action occurs

Also note ... You may have to adjust PC soundcard audio level such that 7300 ALC does not clamp power amp into distortion

Not just ICOM ... seems like most radio/operator's digital mode suffer from too much audio

Anyway, thanks everyone for putting together contests and the scoring.  I am
going to run WFD QRP this year and if it is not too bitter cold am going to
try the zipped up gazebo, propane heater and a bottle of Havana 7 year dark
rum.
Just don't get the rum too close to the heater ;-)

I keep telling my xyl that this hobby is teaching me patience and she needs to let me spend more money for more equipment. I explained to her QRP and she said I was crazy !!

Re: 7300

Mike N6STA
 

OK - Just finished my first QSO with the new 7300 - K0EKA in Denver.  

I just transferred my old headphones/microphone interface from my Jupiter to the 7300.  Simple enough for me.  Spent a couple hours adjusting levels into a dummy load.  I set max power to 95% (I just can't set it to 100) and then I adjust the power out using the Mic Gain control while watching the Po meter.

An interesting thing to me: With the Jupiter I had to adjust the mic drive as I moved up or down in frequency.  The 7300 just maintains the same output from one end of the waterfall to the other.

The audio display is cool too, although so far I've only been watching it during transmit. 

And as Martin said, it's so shiny.  Good fun.

This year there were 105 logs submitted - up from last year’s 90 logs. There were 20 High Power, 52 Medium Power, 28 Low Power and 5 QRP logs.

Top Dawg and 1st in High Power was Steve, VA3TPS of Fenelon Falls, ON with 8208 points, 171 QSO’s, and 43 states. Steve is setting a torrid pace and may well improve his 7th place finish in the RC3 Championship of 2020

High Power - Second Place was Darin, KO4EJD of Crestview, FL, with 5396 points and 142 QSO’s. He joined us in October, 2020 and is off to a great start in our contests. He finished in 2nd High Power in the Triple Play and 3rd High Power in the Doubleheader.

High Power - Third Place was Bob, KF3AA of Huntington, MD with 122 QSOs and 5246 points. Another spectacular performance by Bob who finished in 4th place in the 2020 RC3 Championship.
Medium Power - First place was John, KC3FL, of Inverness FL with 7812 points and 186 QSOs. That included 36 states. John was our Top Dawg first place finisher in the 2020 RC3 Championship.

Medium Power – In Second Place was new member Terry, KZ4KX, of Austin, KY, with 136 QSO’s and 5576 points. He finished in 2nd Place, Medium Power in the Doubleheader.

Medium Power - Third Place went to Brian, KG5GJT of Metairie, LA with 133 QSO’s, 37 States, 4 DXCC and 5453 points.

Low Power – First Place was Steve, W3HF of Collegeville, PA with 6750 points and 150 QSOs, 39 States and 6 DXCC multipliers. Steve, #25 is one of our senior members. He finished in 3rd Place in the 2020 RC3 Championship.

Low Power – Second Place was Jim, K5SP, of Gainesville, TX, with 3270 points and 109 QSO’s.  Jim looks forward to someday beating W3HF in these contests. Jim finished in 6th place in the 2020 RC3 Championships. All this on top of his continuing efforts as Executive Director to improve our club.  

Low Power - Third Place, was David, WA3LXD, of Fort McCoy, FL with 3224 points and 104 QSO’s. Good to see you join the PSK contesters, David.

QRP Power – First Place was Steve, VA3FLF of Fort Erie, ON with 1640 points and 61 QSOs, 25 States and 2 DXCC multipliers.

Hi Stephen,

I purchased from R&L Electronics in Ohio.  Decided to buy from an American dealer instead of Chinese company.  Ordered week before Xmas and it arrived in 3 days, no shipping delays.  Not a lab quality instrument, but seems to work fairly well.  Several good youtube videos on how to use it.  The developer, I believe in Dutch, also has a series of how to use videos on his web site.
