Have thought about it, but with my slow internet, downloading that huge file has put me off.

Dick -

When you get a chance, could you refresh us on your route home? I've lost track, perhaps related to my own travels this year.

I'm here, too.

OBTW..be on the lookout for KD9PCN calling on 20m from NE Indiana. He is a friend and member of the local ARC up there.

He has 47 QSOs and is looking to join up.

Re: Award Checker Log Correction

That's great Steve.  Glad you got it sorted.  It looks like you can add 13 more before the end of the year.  And next September will roll around before you know it.  Do you have a certain time you try to get on every day?  I'll watch for you on air and hopefully help you fill some of those days!  Good luck and good prop!

Award Checker Log Correction

Steve VA3FLF/KM4FLF
 

FYI to award checker maintenance / operations man:

I was updating my logs tonight to load to the Award Checker and found that I had made an error the last upload. Somewhere along the line, and I think it was when I got a new rig computer, my /VE3 files were moved over to my KM4FLF log. So I thought I was uploading all my PSK contacts under both calls and a /VE3 but I missed quite a few.(HRD).

Anyway, long story short, uploaded correctly tonight. I am much closer to 366 than I thought. Unfortunately they are spread out and if I hit them all it will be September next year.

Re: Eqsl a legitimate Grid Square QSL.

Why I use LoTW.

What does the QSL actually say for grid?

My first reaction was that it seems like a whole lot of effort to create a new login (i.e., callsign) with the grid embedded therein. And it also means that if you send an eQSL to W9VOY/m (as he signed), you won't get a match. 

But maybe this is his way of making sure he uploads the right QSOs to each account. 

Unusual? Yes. Kind of flakey (because of the grid embedded in the callsign)? Absolutely. But is the intent clear? Definitely.

Grid square should be on Eqsl in comments or call sign area.  What does everyone think ???

That works if you are on dry land...but this guy was in the middle of the Gulf of Mexico.  eQSL wants a City, County & State.  There is none.

Re: Eqsl a legitimate Grid Square QSL.

I am going through the same problem with a 1X1 call sign we used for a special event station right now.  The problem is...eQSL doesn't deal with alternative locations very well at all.  It is easy with LOTW you just create a New Station Location with the correct Grid Square and everything is just fine.  There is no way to do that with eQSL.  Near as I can figure you have to get their Help Desk involved to get things set up properly.  Was just going to do that to see if I can set up our 1X1 call sign in Grid EL58je...that is a rare one and the operator made hundreds of QSO's there last week...he was working on his ship and operating during his off duty hours.

3D2CR Conway Reef operation FT4/FT8

Jerry N9AVY
 

 Published: 23 October 2021

IOTA Management regrets that it will not be able to accept for IOTA credit contacts made with the 3D2CR operation from Conway Reef between 18 and 25 September 2021. Dominik has not been able to show that his FT4/FT8 activity complied with IOTA rule B.3.10 on which clarification was given in a Management News Item on 10 September. At Dominik’s request credit will also not be given for a small number of contacts made on SSB. Management wishes to draw IOTA DXpeditioners’ attention to its policy of only accepting for IOTA credit contacts that result from contemporaneous direct initiation by the operators on both sides of the contact. Automated contacts, i.e. contacts not initiated and completed personally by both operators at the time of QSO are not acceptable in a programme founded on an ethos of recognising personal operating performance and skill.

 

Team IOTA, 23 October 2021
