Mysteries of the 070 Club Revealed!

N3DQU@...
 

Every so often we hear from an 070 Club member who wonders why he
got his certificate in the mail but not his endorsements, or visa versa. For
those newcomers to the 070 Club and those members who have often
wondered but were afraid to ask, here is a brief description of the 070 Club
organization and what happens with your applications.

The 070 Club is a PSK awards program sponsored by the Penn-Ohio DX
Society, a very small (4 regular members, 4 honorary members) HF-oriented
club located in western Pennsylvania and more commonly known by its initials
PODXS (pronounced PO-DIX), not to be confused with the Ohio/Penn DX
Bulletin, a very fine weekly DX newsletter published by Tedd Mirgliotta,
KB8NW.

The 070 Club itself is run by two guys, both named Jay. For convenience
sake and to avoid any confusion, they will be referred to by their callsigns
KA3X
and N3DQU.

KA3X is the manager of the 070 Club and holds certificate #001. He is the
Top
Banana and takes care of the new members, issues 070 Club member numbers,
member certificates, Ragchewers certificates and QSO upgrade spots (e.g. 50,
100, 150, etc). KA3X's email address is < JHudak3rd@aol.com >.

N3DQU holds certificate #010 and takes care of the 070 Club website and
all of
the information placed therein. He also takes care of the 070 Club reflector,
issues
the endorsements (e.g. Aloha, Lower 48, Hot Dog!, etc.) and often spends his
off
hours thinking up new ones just to keep you guys busy! N3DQU is also the
chief
contest manager and takes care of such things as the PSKFest (with much
appreciated help from N6YIH/7) and the Three-Day Weekend (TDW), which is
coming up this June btw. N3DQU's email address is < n3dqu@aol.com >.

If they are lucky, KA3X and N3DQU may see each other once a month. There
is
no central database and no meetings to conduct 070 Club business. Almost all
correspondence regarding the 070 Club is passed between the two via the
internet,
and each mails out the respective items that they are responsible for to the
members. For example, if a member puts in for an upgrade to the 300 QSO level

and also applies for an Aloha endorsement, then the 300 spot will be mailed
out
by KA3X and the Aloha endorsement will be mailed out by N3DQU.

For best results, please send your applications and requests to the person

responsible for that particular item. If you send a QSO upgrade to N3DQU for
example, your request has to be forwarded to KA3X and may result in a delay.
By
the same token, if you send an endorsement request to KA3X, then he must
forward
the information to N3DQU, once again possibly resulting in a delay.

So you can see that it is quite possible to receive your upgrades,
certificates, and
endorsements all at different times, even though you had applied for them at
the
same time. Also, please note that when there are many endorsements to be sent

out for 070 Club member participation in a PSK event like the PSKFest, TDW or

TARA Rumble, then the turnaround time for certificates and endorsements will
also
be longer until things get caught up.

The 070 Club is free and open to all amateurs licensed to operate on the
HF bands.
Operation of this awards program is made possible thru the support of the
Penn-Ohio DX Society and 070 Club members. Thank you for your participation
and enthusiasm! 73 de Jay N3DQU.

Try Logger.  Just do a search on the web for Logger.  It's a freeware program and will most likely do what you need it to do.  Also another one (I use it) is Win-EQF.  Not free, but has some nagging screens that are not annoying.  But it won't just quit on you after so long.

Hi, well MixW 2.0 has a great logging facility and allows export to ADIF,
text, Cabrillo and CSV formats (as well as being able to select contests or
any part of the log to examine or export). If it's not in the right order, I
guess you could export the txt file to excel or something and sort it in
there and then resave (that's how I do mine if I need to check the log in an
unusual manner). The program is darn fine for PSK too!

Well that depends on whose WAS you are talking about. If your
talking about ARRL, no. If you are talking about a more modern
organization that isn't stuck to gooey red tape and antiquity, and
doesn't suffer from NIH syndrome, like eQSL, or our own 070 club,
of course. You can see a partial list of organizations that accept
eQSL's go to "Information for Ham/SWL Organizations" and look at
the bulletin board.

Most everyone, including me, does upload ALL their logs. I have

thousand entries. My own sits at about 7000, that's for the two
years that I have been logging electronically. Full uploads are
expected and invited. How do you think the number of on-line

Indeed. I have submitted your suggestion to the eQSL advisory

not have a problem with it and unless Dave has some difficult

Re: Eqsls

Richard B Drake
 

When you go to your Inbox or your Archive and look at your list of
QSL's, any new card you have received or old one that you have
archived obviously comes from an entry in the other fellow's log.
If the confirm button appears then you have not yet confirmed the
contact or there is some kind of mismatch such as times that
differ by more than an hour. If the "Sent" message appears then
the QSO has been confirmed in both yours the other fellow's log.
Also in your archive if you are using Internet Explorer (almost
any version) you can use "Edit/Find On This Page" to search for
the word "Confirmed". This will show you any contacts that you
have not yet confirmed. If you don't find that anywhere, then all
the listed QSO's are confirmed both ways. If you are looking for a
specific confirmation, search your Archive for a specific
callsign, if it's there, it's confirmed, if not, it isn't.

Yes, that is true, but I think what he was asking for (it was a little unclear) is a button that would enable you to retrieve a list of only confirmed contacts from the archive. I have sometimes wished for that myself. I'll submit the suggestion to Dave. He only occasionally reads this list.

Re: Eqsls

Richard B Drake
 

No, I have never had that problem, but here is a clip from the
FAQ's section on eQSL.cc. The solution is, get a real ISP!


[From eQSL.cc FAQ]
Q: I am using AOL and having problems.

A: We have received reports from some users that they cannot log
in or retrieve or send cards because they get error messages.
There are 2 problems with AOL.
They use a custom version of a browser that does not properly
submit forms, and
They "cache" pages inside their network in order to conserve
bandwidth, which causes our system not to work properly.
These problems are not specific to eQSL alone, but to many other
eCommerce sites. On February 20, 2001, we added some code to our
software to try to force the AOL network to stop caching pages,
but we can't guarantee this will always work. We wish there were a
more reliable solution, but the best you can do is to download the
latest browser directly from Microsoft, and try using a different
ISP other than AOL. We are working to find a better solution, but
AOL is not exactly eager to change their entire network and
browser.

Re: Eqsls

Steve W3HF
 

I think one of the problems with the eqsl system is that some ops
are just
uploading their whole logs en masse, probably because it is easier for
them to do it that way than to send out individual requests for qsls.
If everyone does it that way, then it is no problem. But some ops
still log on paper (myself included) and have to do a manual search
thru the logs to confirm the contacts. I have gotten eqsl requests for
contest contacts that go all the way back to 1994, and it's pretty
obvious that the guy just dumped his log up to eqsl and doesn't really
need nor want my qsl.
Since I have a "recycled" call sign, I have received a number of eqsls from the years prior to its being issued to me. I simply reject those with the note that it wasn't my callsign then. Too bad--there were some nice countries there. hi hi

I have a bad return rate too on eqsl too, but
for paper qsl's am 100%, because the guy went thru the trouble to put
a stamp on it! Jay N3DQU.
Jay, do you mean that you receive replies 100% of the time when
YOU SEND a paper QSL, or that YOU REPLY 100% of the time
when you are SENT a paper qsl? I think Duncan and Costas were
talking about replies to their own QSLs.

Just checked my eQSLs stats, and I'm at 50%--242 out, 121 in. And
I don't simply upload my log, as the system I use does not export
ADIF. So each of those 242 is a manual entry.

I respond to every QSL that is sent to me, replying in kind (eQSL for
eQSL, direct for direct, bureau for bureau).

For cards I initiate, I would guess that the reply rate for my direct
cards is a bit better than 80% or so, but I have followed up by email
with some that seemed to be dragging. My bureau rate is low now,
but I am sure that many are still "in the system" as I only sent my
very first package to the US bureau in December 2000.

Re: Eqsls

Richard B Drake
 

I suspect that the reason why your bureau return from the US is
lower is that here we have to be members of ARRL and pay
additional for the outgoing bureau service. If you're not a member
of ARRL, forget it. It's also a real pain in the butt to package
up a pound or so of cards, prove your membership by attaching a
label from QST and send them out with a check. In contrast,
eQSL.cc is free and just a simple matter of uploading a log.

I have also about 66% direct, but less than 30% via
the bureau. I understand that hams in USA have a better
return via bureau, perhaps as a result of WAS and Counties
awards.
