Re: CONTEST MACRO'S #information

 

Dave...It depends on what software ur using. What's your software?

For MixW:
PSK31 =    <MODE:BPSK31> 
PSK63 =    <MODE:BPSK63>
PSK125 =    <MODE:BPSK125>
QPSK31 =   <MODE:QPSK31>
QPSK63 =   <MODE:QPSK63>
QPSK125 = <MODE:QPSK125>

Steve and others have the macro's for different software, e.g. Digipan, Field Digi, etc.

Thanks Milt. that answers my qso. So when I hit the macro for say BPSK it will change to that mode automatic ?

Barry: That sounds like you already have the same version of the Access driver. You might consider choosing “repair” in case your current driver is corrupt.

Dick:

Unfortunately, that is true for many of us.  Used to be a die-hard 10m op many long years ago.  Could draw a 600 mile circle around my QTH and that was "the zone of silence".   Did try working backscatter and that prodced a few contacts, but close in states around me weren't there yet I could hear others working 9-land stations. 

Several years ago I went to visit my Daughter in MN (about 350 miles away) and copied stations on 10m that I could never hear back in Illinois.

Nw it seems that 20m is acting pretty like 10m did back in the day. When W9SMR/9 or KC9UR is on 20m I just can't hear a peep out of them.

So my only chance at clos in stations is on 40/80m, but current propagation isn't that good.  Best bet is to get to know the bands by operating daily and figuring out the propagation by what you hear.  Propagation, IMHO, are like weather foreasts...

Hi Jerry,

That is the truth.  When there is a FL oriented contest I have trouble getting contacts within the state and also the close by states.  I can't generate enough ground wave and the sky wave goes over.  I like working POTA and when FL parks are activated, I usually can copy the callers, but no the POTA station.

31 Flavors Sprint – Tomorrow !

stan W9SMR
 

The Ø7Ø Club 31 Flavors Sprint is Tomorrow -


Saturday, April 3 - 1000 UTC

to Sunday, April 4 – 0359 UTC

 

This is an 18 hour event

Work any 6 hour block of your choice

 

This is a chance to try 6 different PSK modes.  Check your software - most will do all PSK Modes.  6 mode variants will be used:

·         BPSK 31 [Narrow bandwidth]

·         QPSK 31 [Narrow bandwidth]

·         BPSK 63 [Wide bandwidth]

·         QPSK 63 [Wide bandwidth]

·         BPSK 125 [Very wide bandwidth]

·         QPSK 125 [Very wide bandwidth]

Sprint Rules – Work a 6 hour block of your choice. For Scoring, your 6 hour block will start with the hour you select on the Upload Link page and continue for the next 6 hours

 

Work each station once per mode. (Same station, same mode, is a dupe!)

 

Open to all licensed radio amateurs.

Frequencies: - 20 Meters only
- Normal PSK sub-band for narrow mode variants,
- Sub-band 14072.5 - 14080 kHz suggested for wide bandwidth mode variants.


3 Power Categories (No 100 W category):
Medium < 50 W

Low < 25 W

QRP < 5 W

Exchange: 

- Members: State/Province/Country (SPC) + 070 Member Number   eg: “FL  1611”

- Non-Members: State/Province/Country (SPC) + First Name  eg. “FL  Stan”

 

Call: “CQ PSK 31 FLAVORS”  (Announce Switching to new Mode)


All entry logs
 must be received within 1 week after the event ends. A 31 Flavors Uploader link will be available on the PODXS 070 Home Page.

 

For Rules and detailsClick Here: 31 Flavors (podxs070.com)

 

This is one of our most interesting contests. If you have never tried these different PSK modes, don't be shy. 

 

There has been lots of discussion on the Reflectors concerning how to set up MACROS to change modes efficiently. Check it out.

 

Last year, we had 45 Logs submitted, which is the highest since 2016. Lee, N5SLY, won Top Dawg honors and First Place in the 50W category with a spectacular 92 QSOs utilizing all 6 modes.

 

Let’s see if we can give Lee some competition this year ! 

Hope to work you in all 6 modes!
    


73,

Stan

Randy and Barry - I had a lot of trouble with DM780 freezing. HRD support had me do the following and it fixed it for me:

“Downnload and install the Microsoft Access Database Engine 2013 driver. CAUTION: Please make sure you download and install the 32-bit version (AccessRuntime_x86_en-us.exe) Download Here -- ”

It was a surprisingly easy fix in my case. Hope it works for you guys too! Before I installed it, my DM780 would freeze every time I clicked on a callsign to enter it into the Add Log window, and often, anytime I used the mouse.

When I run that exe I get a popup asking if I would like to change my installation of MAR 2013
I have options:
1) Add or remove Features
2) Repair
3) Remove
4) Enter a Product Key
None of these looked too attractive to me.

Dick:

Grids are hard to get if one doesn't have that one.  As close as I am to IA, WI, MI, MN and MO, I still need a few here & there.  The last sunspot cycle provide a lot of PSK31 contacts and AI hope once Cycle 25 gets rolling it will do the same providing that more FT8 operators get bored.

We got our tickets for the NCAA Gymnastics National Championships today, so the spring road trip is on.  We will be covering the following grids:  EM64, EM27, EM26, EM25, EM24, EM23, EM15, EM14, EM13, EM03, EM02, EM01, DL99 and DL98.  These are grids that I have not made a qso from.  This may seem disjointed, but that is why.  From Huntsville, EM64 we will be going thru some of the other EM grids in the 30s, 40s, and 50s.  We will be returning thru the TX, LA coast again so EL59 is still a possibility for anyone that needs it.  We are leaving on April 9th and will be back in FL some time around the 24th.  No Rick we are not going to DL88, hi hi.  If anyone would like the detailed map drop me an e-mail.

Fantastic Dick!  You guys enjoy the Championships.  Great that they are going ahead with them.  Sign me up for DL99 and EM01.  But I'll work you in as many grids as I can - whether I've worked it before or not.  It will be a joy to follow you there and back!  Hi to Kathy!  And a big "Thank You" to both of you.  73,

HRD Freeze Fix (?)

K8TOM
 

Thanks for the tip, Paula.  I'll give it a try and see what happens.

I have found with DM780 that by typing the call sign into the box (rather than clicking with the mouse to auto-insert) the frequency of freezing is greatly lessened.

Maybe that's coincidental or causal; I can't say.

73,
Tom
