Guess I missed out on my 5 minutes of fame.  :-(  Best wishes to all for a safe and healthy summer.  I'm looking forward to another APE with Stan (W9SMR) in August and to more Chimp Chases (couldn't make the first one).

Bob, KC9UR

Changed XP box to a WIN7 box a couple years back. Now running MixW 3.2.   Think I tried to get it working on XP box back then , but with zero success.  I should probably never go near a computer....

It's all on your end. It works for me and others too.
If you get the country flag pop-up icons, then it's working properly. You just don't have the correct 070 member info in the "icon.cfg" file or the 070 member icons in the "Icons" folder.

Gotta love this software !   Copying mail on 20m and see a guy named Jordan; so MixW sticks a little Jordanian flag next to his name , does that mean he's a Arab ?   Hardly.

One of the quirkier quirks of MixW is that when ever you print the name of a country it sticks a flag next to name...   New Mexico gets a Mexican flag...  New England gets a Union Jack... never wish anyone a Happy Turkey Day because you'll get a little Turkish flag in there ....and so on.

Last Call - CHIMP CHASE #1 Atta-Boy

stan W9SMR
 

The introductory Chimp Chase for qualified portable expeditions away from your home radio shack has concluded. Were you able to get everything working in your Backyard or on the Park picnic benches and make the needed 5 QSOs?.

 Was your portable operation an official POTA or SOTA?

 

So far I have confirmation from the following Chimp Chase winners:

CALL NAME #QSOs
K7PAX Paula 5
KB3RAN Dave 9
KM4LPW Tom 5
KO4EJD Darin 14
N7WE Rick 16

 

Please send me any corrections and additions ASAP.

 

Send us the Glorious and/or Gruesome details using the Reflector or via direct email to me. We want to share your pain and glory!

 

For this introductory attempt to be a valid CHIMP CHASE, the operation must have taken place during the Daze #4 event and have made at least 5 two-way PSK31 contacts with different call signs / bands.  No prior approval was required.

 

The Official Event duration was:

Starting: 00:00 UTC on Saturday, May 22

Ending:  23:59 UTC on Sunday, May 23

 

If you had a successful operation, a “CHIMP CHASE Atta-Boy” PDF will be emailed to you.

 

Just send me a note acknowledging your success in working 5 QSOs while portable during the event duration noted above. I do not need to see your log.

 

My email: Robinstan (at) hotmail.com

 

 

And please send me your comments and suggestions to improve this Event.

I hope to have a repeat Endorsement Daze in August and if the Chimp Chase is popular, we’ll do another one.

Re: LONP & 31 Flavors

Stephen Melachrinos
 

Milt -

The rules are clear that for a QSO to count for any endorsement or award from the 070 club, it must be in PSK31. So unfortunately the simple answer is no.

The 31 Flavors contest is a fun event to explore the other (and sometimes faster) PSK modes, but those QSOs only count towards the contest scores (and other non-070 awards).

It's an interesting thought to create an exception to the PSK31-only rule for an 070 event, but that would mean a lot of extra logic in the checker to include non-PSK31 QSOs during the contest window. That would have to be updated each year to account for that year's date of 31 Flavors. There's the question of whether the QSOs should count for awards only if the member submits the log for contest credit. And then you have to consider the impact of the "choose any six hours" contest rule (does the QSO count if it wasn't in the selected six hours but during the larger window?). I'm sure there's a solution to this but it seems complex to create a "standard process" that can cover all variables in an automated fashion. And with the state of where we are today, trying to re-create a fully functional award checker, I would recommend the club leave the rule where it is.

73,
Steve

I'm currently doing some log cleaning up, and maintenance.
As I did a complete sort, by mode, I'm wondering...
If I make a contact with a new member that I've not worked before...in other words, a potential "New LONP" contact, 
does it count for LONP if in BPSK 63, or BPSK 125, or QPSK 31, or QPSK 63, or QPSK 125,
BUT, not made in BPSK 31? 

I'd also like to acknowledge the most analytical mind that I've come across in the ranks of our worldwide club.
