Stickers ?

w2eck
 

Long time member but not a consistent PSK operator. So in last two weeks, I  have received two mailings of stickers, which I think is pretty neat. But.... what does one do with them? Is there a certificate or card that the stickers get applied to?

Tnx & 73

It looks like Bob is having a great APE.  I will be interested to read his report.  Still time to work him if you haven't got him yet.  And prop does change as the layers shift around and local conditions change.  Don't give up!  As John points out...he can just be there one minute and booming in the next.  Good hunting!

Re: KK6KMU APE Calling

 

I got him at 18:31 on 14.071.975.  Lots of QRN while trying to work around T storms.  Was only 559 but I heard him a little later and was a solid 599.

Contacted Bob around 18:30z.  His signal was strong then...no problem coping at all.

Thinking about going to a park tomorrow here in North Texas.  Will operate PSK on 20 meters.  Will let everyone know if it all works out.

KK6KMU #information

Jerry N9AVY
 

Got him !!!!    

Very like copy... gave Bob a very generous  355 signal report.  He sent 599, but had 3 elements point at him and he was portable with a less than ideal antenna , mostly likely.   

One APE in the log !   Woo-hoo !!!

Re: KK6KMU APE Calling

Copy very light here in Northern IL.  Maybe 10-20%..

Bureau QSLs received

Jerry N9AVY
 

Today a bunch of QSLs came in from W9 ARRL Incoming Bureau where I spent 16 years working my tail off. It was fun, but it had to end because of having to drive miles & miles every month to pick up cards for sorting.  

The few cards which came in this month had a lot of date/time errors. Ops seem to be getting sloppy these days. Most errors seem to be conversion to GMT which is so easy if all logs are kept in GMT/UTC.  Times seem to be ending times rather than start times...  I was taught early on to use  Start time of QSO. Thankfully LoTW allows a 30 minute window each side of time. 

Guess I'm OCD or just a plain old nitpicker ...  Hi ! Hi !

Sorry for the confusion. 

Be on the lookout for APEs starting today:

August 4th, 19:00 to 24:00,  20M  -  KK6KMU

TU, Barry for pointing out my continuing time conversion confusion.

Now go catch an APE!!

Your update shows 05:30 to 24:00

This looks to be one of the most popular activities this year. This is the most APE activations we have had since 2012 when 10 APEs took to the field.
