Had a QSO tonight with George on 80m.  And he helped me with my 365 quest for 11/23.
Told him I was looking forward to collecting his new PODXS number soon.

He has about 47 QSOs under his belt and needs a little boost over the 50 Q threshold.

George is a member of the same Land of Lakes ARC I belong to up there.

Failure Notice

 

JoAnn...
I'm giving it a serious look.
One of my oldest and best'est BFF's, W5XZ has a few of them.
He does 1 band, 160m and swears by them.
The wagons are still circling. On the Yaesu, there's a total of $950 in instant rebates available that expire on the 30th of this month. A source tells me that they'll be extended to cover the Christmas holiday season.
I dunno...

Milt,
   Have you looked at the Flex 6600/M?  Dual receivers. Three (3) instances per receiver. Two (2) External Ports for Transvers. The M Model gives you a front panel Screen and knobs and switches and buttons. Built in Speaker. You can route RX1 to Left ear and RX2 to Right ear.
Just my two cents worth.

P.S. My wife TOLD me that the Flex was my LAST Radio. I still have my FT-1000MP that I gought in 2000.

Good question.
There's more filtering options on the MP model, than the D model.
The speaker/power supply comes with the MP model.
Yip, double the RF out on the MP, nice, but not a determining factor.
Those Sherwood ratings on the MP are impressive.
I really haven't made up my mind yet, but I'm leaning towards the MP.
The critical path is still: Aerial --> Feed Line --> Receiver.
That's where I am. No game face yet, but I'm getting there.
And now, Jim tells me I have to get 2...I'll get right on that! :-)

What is the difference with the FTDX-101D?  Is one 100 watts and the other 200 watts?  Sherwood ratings has it in first place.  I hear the interface takes a little getting use to.

Milt,

I agree about the critical path.  I would like to add geography.  Living in a house with a hill blocking my southern direction makes it difficult to hear anything in that direction. And as you suggest without a good antenna system the best rig in the world can't do its thing.

My son-in-laws father just got his K4.  It was over a year after he placed his order.  He tells me there is a learning curve from his K3.
It all comes down to what you are comfortable with.  Have you been to HRO to test drive one.  That is if they have any in the store.  

Good luck and enjoy,
Bob

He also mentioned that he knew you.

Take a look on 40M tonite for George, KD9PCN from NE Indiana. 

He has about 47 QSOs under his belt and needs a little boost over the 50 Q threshold.

Thanks for your input.
The actual contest rules don't say anything about how you can phrase your actual CQ call.
Official rules:
The contest announcement is only a suggestion as to how you can do it.
I add to my CQ macro, "any station anywhere". 
My thought is to use my CQ macro to invite responses from non-members.
What you do is up to you totally.

A couple of months ago, I was rag chewing on PSK with a station. Mentioned the 070 Club, where to find info, and that we have contest and awards. Ran into him a few days ago and he told me he had just got his 070 Number. I congratulated him and told him about the contest. I just happen to work him durn the contest and was glad to see another ham join our ranks. BTW he was call "CQ 070 SPRINT", which is what the Website rules for the contest said to use. Not sure why Igor used a different CQ call but I didn't stop me from working him and then going on to other stations. I too made contact with hams that were not contesting. After exchanging Name, QTH, RST and such, I added them to my contest log. Hopefully those Hams will look up the 070 Club and join our ranks.

I had a similar encounter with Igor.  I dared to ask him why he was using “PODXC de W0IZ”  to call CQ — certainly a non-standard call that we were supposed to figure out meant “CQ 070 Sprint” as called for in the contest instructions.  Got a stern rebuke that questions should be handled over the Internet, not over the air.  Of course, when you look up his call on QRZ.com, you don’t find any e-mail address — only a diatribe on the “right way” (his way) to participate in a contest if you’re not part of the “predominantly experienced older crowd” using RTTY.

I hope Igor’s attitude hasn’t driven off other PSK-31 operators.  I, for one, enjoy the more laid-back, “have fun” attitude of our PODXS members during contests.  And a couple times, I broke out of contest mode to chew the rag with folks who were new to the mode or had never heard of PODXS 070.  There are more important things in life than racking up contest points.  Let’s all remember the parts of the Amateur Radio Code of Conduct which states the amateur is CONSIDERATE  and FRIENDLY.
