Re: DX-DL

DL2AYL@...
 

Sorry Steve,

but the year is not over yet, on 20 meters are always some early birds,
maybe you can catch the last one short before midnight.
Good luck with that one and for the coming year !

DX-DL

spdomingue@...
 

Well I did not make the DX-DL as of 11 AM local here and the dx windo is closed unless somthing strange happens Looks Like I did not make the award.

Well I will try to be the first on MY block to get the DX-JA and DX-EA unless the filter here changes from DL to EA stations but sure worked a bunch the last few days looking for the last few DL station. I made 19 contacts this year with DL stations just one short.

Good luck every one in the New Year and See you all in the PSK Fest.

Hello Everyone,
Wishing you all a Happy and Healthy New Year. We have a lot to give
Thanks for. Unfortunately, many people here in the Big Apple will
not. Our prayers go out to them.
Gud DX and a clear waterfall to all.
Best Regards,

Re: Great DX

hamopcq
 

Hi Steve and 070 Gang,
Yes the DX was fabulous yesterday. In addition to the stations that Steve mentions, I also worked CT1, LA4, PA5, SM5, C31BO (Andorra), G4 and the Canary Island station EA8EH. I'd trade them all in for Delaware and HI.
Gud DX to all,
Lenny K2LAM


Great DX

spdomingue@...
 

Today Saturday was Great on 10 and 15 meters Here are the PSK stations I saw print on the screen Here in Boise Idaho.
ZD7, SP3, ON!, 4K6, EZ8, IK7, SMO
I even worked  2 DL stations and after giving up for the day on the DL's I worked CU3FV, EA6DD, EA8EH, and EA5AMK for some new DX locations and IOTA contacts. So DX was great here but for the lack of the DL stations well 2 days and 3 contacts to go for the DX-DL endorcement.

Best of the New Year to everyone and Good DX to all

Re: 10m

hamopcq
 

Hi Steve - Gud morning,
I've been working 20mtrs exclusively. In Fact, all but a hand full of contacts are on 20mtrs. I guess I've been looking too hard for DE and HI. Will definitely get on the other bands for sure. Will be looking for you and the group.
73,

10m

Steve W3HF
 

Lenny -

You have GOT to get on 10m, the sooner the better. I still haven't
found Hawaii, but I made it to Japan, on five watts and an attic
dipole! Marginally copyable, and probably helped by the fact that it
was an operator I had worked before when I was in California, but a
legitimate QSO nonetheless.

Now back to searching for Delaware ....

Well said, dear Duncan, the PSK-31 people are notorious
their for long transmissions, compared to RTTY (Baudot)
DXers. It's a good idea to keep transmissions short when:

1. Working DX pile-ups

2. Facing changing propagation conditions and slow QSB.

Or, I might add, when working QRP. I may indicate that I'm QRP,
but only if the other op seems to want to "chat" a little.

I save the really long brag files (with hard disk size, monitor type,
printer, and color of case) for my very good friends. :-)

A real good idea is to short your transmissions and wait for the gap, rather than
calling over each other...just a stupid mess....Happy New Year! Of course! I apologise
it's not this group that needs the advice....:-)

Me too, at 0738 UTC. Real S9+5 dB over here. He uses 150 W on
quad antenna. QSL is via DJ1MM.

It is digusting every time a new one turns up, they keep calling
and calling so actually nobody has a chance.
It's the direct result of DX-cluster. Without DX-cluster
you cannot work SSB DX because they don't identify. With
DX-cluster, the pile-up is created within seconds. A few
days ago I heard 7Q7LA callign CQ in CW and we had a nice
chat for a while. As soon as I signed SK, a huge pile up
started instantaneously, making further contacts with
7Q7LA nearly impossible.

Happy New Year

Re: Jenny EZ8AQ

AA8QQJMauch@...
 

It would be nice if the DX Clusters had an entry (check mark in a column)
telling its users to only give the minimal info. Would be even better if we
could have all the lids beamed up to the mother ship for reprogramming.

hmmm, sounds like a good use for that [F 12] key I never use... [F 12] = zap
lid...

Here's wishing everyone a prosperous and happy 2002
good DX (without the lids),

Yes I saw you, I'm not in a hurry about him, have worked him in ssb, so it
wouldn't be a completely new one. It is digusting every time a new one turns
up, they keep calling and calling so actually nobody has a chance. Don't
think we can change those which forget it is just a hobby and not a matter
of life or death.
Good weekend to all and a good year 2002 !

Hi Duncan...hope that your Christmas was a good one... I used to have an HO  gage train set-up, back in the early 70's,  that would knock your socks off if you saw it....I was a real train nut then and  still am, somewhat...Ham radio and old cars have taken up most of my time these days... the ZTrain in my e-mail address is a local provider that I use...I have met the fellow that started it, but never asked him if he was a train  nut too.. will have to do that one day soon...so there you are.. Hope your New Year is filled with great dx and good props. all year long....take  care

CQ Digital Prefix Hunters

N3DQU@...
 

CQ digital prefix hunters! Beginning January 1, 2002, the Penn-Ohio DX
Society (PODXS) will be unveiling a new award program called PODXS DPX.
Similar to the CQ WPX program, PODXS DPX is for the amateur out there who
does his prefix hunting on the digital modes.
The idea for this award came from Ernie Mills WM2U when he discovered that
the CQ WPX program covered only the CW and Phone modes. So for the last
couple of weeks, Ernie and I have been burning up the internet, sending ideas
and files back and forth until finally we came up with what we think will be
a very popular program with the digital crowd! As it turns out, Ernie is a
great guy to work with and pretty much already had the whole thing figured
out at his end, all I had to do is throw in my 2 cents worth every once in
awhile to keep things interesting! Hmmm...Guess that is why the Rumble is
such a big success, eh!
The rules and forms are available at two websites: <
http://www.qsl.net/wm2u/podxs_dpx.html > and <
http://hometown.aol.com/n3dqu/podxs_dpx.htm >. A "Top Ten" list will also be
posted yearly on the PODXS website. Note that the DPX program will not be
officially online until Jan 1, 2002 so don't start sending in your
applications yet, but I wanted to give you guys advance notice so you can
start counting up them prefixes. Also, please note that 070 Club members get
a 50% discount on the basic certificate, just one of the many perks of 070
Club membership hi! 73 de Jay N3DQU.
