Rick,
We're too close.  I could hardly copy him on the vertical but he was 559 on the beam but he couldn't cpy me.  Funny thing about it was if I pointed the beam at him I could hardly cpy him, but turned away from him, I had a good cpy on him.  Maybe long path.  hi hi

I am please to report that (a) I read the email in time to do something about it, (b) my radio was working, (c) I was working, (d) and I found Tom and we had a great QSO. 

What a thrill to talk to Buckingham Airfield. Thank you Tom very much for setting the special event station up. You made my day, and that was before I had my coffee.

Oh, Tom mentioned that I was the second uBITX radio type to contact him, so the Team uBITX is out and about, I'm pleased to report. Go 10 watts go! hahah.

Also, I got some screen gabs of w4lx on the water fall. I have no way to reduce RF gain, beyond turning down the volume (yea, a simple radio!). But this was a hot signal into Northern Virginia.

I will be on 20 and possibly 40, for the next two mid-days as W4LX, to participate in the Buckingham Airfield Special Event.

 

Approximately 50,000 bomber gunners were trained at Buckingham Army Airfield during WW2.  They flew mostly in B-17 Flying Fortresses and B-24 Liberators.

 

Please drop by and visit when you see me on the waterfall in PSK-31. Thanks.  There is a Certificate available for a completed QSO.

Randy,

I think your entries for WS0Y are breaking things.  It looks like the zero is
not a simple 0, but probably the goofy "slashed 0" character.  That's not valid
because it's not a digit, so things are barfing.  Can you check and see if you
can fix those in you file and upload again?

Re: St. Pat's Log

 

Jerry...
I'm not the high sheriff of the logs. Look at your score, and the list of Q's. You can copy/paste and print it to eyeball perouse it.
You have "filename.adif" . That's your file name. You can call it whatever you want.
When you download it from your logging software as an ".adi" file, that's when it's signed .adi.
If you didn't add the ".adif", then your logging software did it. There's your out..., but again, it just doesn't matter.
