I'll join in.  I would like to complete my WARC endorsements.  I need contacts on 12, 17 & 30 meters.  Glad to help members that just need a contact for their 365 award.  I remember when I was close to getting that endorsement I couldn't wait for that specific day to come...hi hi.  Finally got it done a few years ago.  That is not an easy one to get.

start a chat. we used one for the 24/7 and it made keeping track of who and where things were happening a lot easier.

I'll join (or start one), I'm going to try to finish my 365 this summer too.
we usually met at 2330Z to get "day or hour 1" and then worked awhile from 0001Z on to get "day or hour 2"
i.e. operate for a period around the zulu day change and fill two slots that day instead of just one.

CQ 365

 

Here's an idea when you're trying to get that needed contact for 365 Endorsement.  Call "CQ 365" and when a member sees that you have a better chance to make a contact even if the other station had a contact with you the day before.

Dave,

Will be looking out for you.  I need about 70 more days.  It will probably be next year before I can close mine out.

I picked up June 3rd and now need only June 25 and 26 and July 23 for my 365.  Look for me on those dates, please.  Really want to close out this chase this year.

Milt,
Sure thanks for offering.  Not sure about the time but Ill think about it.  If there are more interested in 40 meters I will come up with a plan.
20 meters just doesn't work for us.  Most of the time I can't even see your trace on 20 meters.

I am retired, so in one sense the government pays me to stay home so I can be on my radio all day long, 7 days a week. LOL

Re: 365 Endorsement

 

Bob,
A good plan for sure!
Let me know when, and probably best on 40m or 80m for us.
I don't think we'd have much of a problem on either band.
If you want to give it a test before then, just 'hollar.

All,

I am going to start  working on my 365 Endorsement.  I have many days in June, July, August and September.  Starting next week June 15 I will try to be on as many days as I can.  I would greatly appreciate a friendly greeting even if we have worked each other before.  Plan is to be on 20 meters about 2000 UTC for an hour or so for as many days as I possibly can.  Anyone else who wants to work on their 365 endorsement is  welcomed.  Plan is subject to change, especially when family is involved.

Thanks,
Bob KK6KMU

You're not alone.  Noise level is usually about S-9 to 10 db over.  Power lines are buried so there are no poles; however the substation is about 1/4 miles as the crow flies. 

Neighbors with noisy computers and such are also part  of problem.  Some days I dream of driving a bulldozer thru neighborhood, but that wishful thinking, hi, hi !
