I will print the stickers, address labels, and other items soon.  Then I will accumulate them, sort them, and split them up between our two mailing experts.  I will mail them all the materials, they will do the envelope stuffing, affixing return address labels, affixing address labels, sticking proper postage on, and perform the actual mailings.  This will take time, and I ask you to be patient with us.

I have already mailed out the May-June new member packets.  If you joined in May or June and got yours let me know, also let me know if you did not get yours.

I also just got back from a brief vacation, and have some logs to check for additional LONP points, I think we have one new member but will know for sure in couple of days.

Sorry to have missed the Firecracker this year, but family came first.

Bob, the DXLabs-FLDigi Gateway will work with Win 10, once you get it installed. It took me three times to install with no errors but have been using it for close to a year now with no issues. Have you tried installing only the base program without the update? That's how I installed mine (eventually!), then just have to copy the upgrade .exe file into the directory. Also, allow the installer to place the Gateway in the default (C:\) directory.

Hope this helps

I changed to FLDIGI because I really think it is a more robust piece software than WinWarbler.  My opinion.  I was using a FLDIGI to DXLabs software bridge and everything was just the way I wanted it.  When I upgrade to Win 10 the bridge no longer worked and the author of the bridge has not yet rewritten the bridge.  I really like the like the DX Labs suite because it works really well with JS8CALL and the WSJT software.  For now I'm logging with FLDIGI and exporting to DXKeeper.  I use N1MM+ Logger for most contest.

Take a look at N7YG's PSKExpress Software. It is Free and really works great. I use it all the time for my PSK operations. As a backup I have FLDIGI. For my Logger I use N3fjp's ACLog. It interfaces with both PSKExpress and FLDIGI.  Have never used HRD, so can not help with that.

I think I saw one almost like that parked behind our Sherriff's office! 
It might be available to loan, but it probably gets less mpg than your

I have compiled a list of everyone's grid request.  I will probably post the schedule before we leave so you will know what day we will be hitting the grid.  As usual I will text those that need that grid when we are approaching.  Rick, Kathy said if she could get ahold of the critter in the attached picture she would activate EL88, hi hi. 

We are heading North the end of the month for work and will be in DE for a couple of days, if anyone still needs that state.

There was a mailing in January giving all stickers  earned in the last part of 2020.

We will be preparing the mid year mailing over the next couple of weeks, and the necessary stickers, postage, envelopes, address labels, and other materials will be sent to the mailing team to assemble and mail.
