Re: IC7300 UFH Coverage??

Jerry N9AVY
 

You should follow the sites with used radio.  If they were built in last decade the prices start at $500 and go up.. up.. up.  Love the comment on some 20 year old radios 'LIKE NEW"... seems like it's either new or not. 
Some folks perception of reality is a bit skewed.   Most want local pickup with cash and will not ship.  Shipping is important because original packing has been tossed and radios need to be double boxed (remember the Samsonite luggage TV ads with the gorillas ?).

Just a little humor on rig prices.

Thanks John and Bob you answered a question I had.  Since switching to my backup radio the fldigi setup for it did not work the same as my main radio.  Now it does.

Dave also forgot to remind you to save the entire configuration when you close FLDIGi or all settings will come back to the original when you restart.

Dave are you adjusting the FFT bandwidth using the arrows to the left and right of the upper and lower limit.  You waterfall should change in real time as you adjust with the arrows.  You must save once you get it the way you want.

Re: FLDIGI not decoding. #new

 

Dave,
Glad that fixed it.  The only thing I can think of why you can't get it back to 3000 is either your rig or another piece of software has frozen that setting.  Restart the computer and run just Fldiji with the rig off and see if that helps.

OK John that did the trick. But I accidently opened up the FFT processing to 5500. I tried to reduce it to 3000 but it still shows 5500 after save config.

Dave,

Make sure this number is 30.  I think if that is set at 10, your browser will only show signals 1000 Hz and lower.  They will still show up on the waterfall and you can still decode them.  Click on attachment to enlarge.

John,

That set how many channels will be displayed in the channel browser.  The bandwidth processing is set in configure, waterfall, FFT processing. I set my lower limit to 0 and upper limit to 3000.  Not sure that will help.  Also make sure you can see the whole band by adjusting the waterfall scale.

Yes Steve I have no filters activated. When I see a signal on the WF I can decode with no problem. It seems to be the browser on the left hand side below 1000 it will copy.

Thanks Dave

Endorsement Daze #5 – CHIMP CHASE and WARC-CRAWL

stan W9SMR
 

Endorsement Daze #5 – CHIMP CHASE and WARC-CRAWL
Saturday, August 21
Sunday August 22
 

 This is our 5th Endorsement Daze Event. IT IS NOT A CONTEST.

 

This activity is intended to promote more on-air time among members and provide targeted opportunities to achieve specific PODXS Endorsements.

 

For the second time we will include the CHIMP CHASE, designed to encourage informal outdoor portable operation. Grab an Atta-Boy by going portable during Daze #5. Five members earned this during Daze #4; K7PAX, KB3RAN, KM4LDW, KO4EJD and N7WE.

 

And new for a challenge will be an Atta-Boy for WARC-CRAWL. Just make one QSO on each of our WARC Bands 30M/17M/12M and receive the new Atta-Boy. Be one of the first to earn this.

 

First Objective:  CHIMP CHASE

 

We have had a very successful APE (August PSK-31 Expedition) program for years. We encourage you to explore this great experience.

See:  August PSK31 Expedition - APE

 

We now expand the challenge to encourage informal Portable Operation on your own schedule by now chasing the CHIMP (A Portable setup of your choice)

 

Think of Chimp Chase as APE Boot-Camp!!

A Chimp qualified portable expedition site must be away from your home radio shack. You may use home power but you need to set up a temporary/portable antenna and station away from the home shack. Backyard ops and park picnic benches are encouraged for this category.

 

If this operation is at an official POTA or SOTA so much the better! Let us know the details using the Reflector.

 

To be a valid CHIMP CHASE, the operation must take place during the Daze #5 event and make at least 5 two-way PSK31 contacts.

Note that no prior approval is required to enjoy a sunny afternoon on your patio!

 

Rumor has it that there may also be several APE activations that weekend. What fun that will be!!

 

Following successful completion of your CHIMP operation, post your story on the Reflector or just send me an email advising me of your successful operation and a “CHIMP CHASE Atta-Boy” will be emailed to you.

 

Second Objective: WARC-CRAWL

 

This seems to be a good time to focus our attention on the improving Cycle 25 propagation. Time to explore a new band and its good and bad attributes, even if we have to CRAWL!!

 

Just make one QSO on each of our WARC bands, 30M, 17M and 12M.

 

The added benefit is progress (crawling) toward the existing WARC Endorsements (12/12M, 17/17M, 30/30M and Tri-WARC). Only 49 members have earned the Tri-WARC which requires earning the other 3 WARC awards first (59 QSOs).

 

Following successful completion of your WARC-CRAWL Challenge, post your story on the Reflector or just send me an email advising me of your successful operation and a “WARC-CRAWL Atta-Boy” will be emailed to you.

 

Endorsement Daze #5

 

Starting: 00:00 UTC on Saturday, August 21

Ending:  23:59 UTC on Sunday, August 22

 

Our Endorsement Daze #5 event is planned for 48 hours in hopes of finding everyone’s available operating times. As always, these events offer a wonderful opportunity to earn LONP and other Endorsement credits.

 

There is nothing critical about your operating times. Get on when you can and the conditions are favorable and enjoy the event. Post your intentions on the Reflector.

 

 Join the fun and enjoy…Call: CQ CQ 070 Daze de (Ur Call)

 

If you will be operating portable, include CHIMP (or Portable) in your CQ.

 

For other Endorsement credit, upload your complete log promptly to the Online Endorsement Checker :  Endorsement Checker

 

The Atta-Boys for Chimp Chase and WARC-CRAWL will be via direct contact with me or through your shared Reflector stories.
No upload required for my approval of these Atta-Boys.

 

 As you see activity on the waterfall, be sure to “SPOT” those calls and your own to PSKReporter and on the Reflector. Be sure to Spot any CHIMPS you see and especially any signals seen on the WARC bands.

 

We encourage you to work nonmembers too. Just show them how much fun the PODXS 070 Club can be and welcome them to join us.

 

After you enjoy the Daze #5, please send me your comments and suggestions to improve this Event. If these events are being enjoyed, I hope to repeat Endorsement Daze Events.

I Totally agree with this statement as my only friend (per XYL) and I have same
agreement. We are both in our 70's and both have heart issues. Now when we 
get together we tease each other about who will get stuck with the chore as first
one out escapes all obligations and second has to find a new buddy. We keep
debating the need for a plan "B" and laughing about the fact we have no young friends.
