2002 TDW


Announcing the 2002 Edition of the 070 Club Three Day Weekend (TDW)

Purpose - To work as many 070 Club members as possible in the allotted time
using PSK31 mode. All 070 Club members work each other. Contacts with
non-members do not count for this event.

Date - 0000Z May 31, 2002 to 2400Z June 2, 2002.

Exchange - Callsign, signal report, your first name and your 070 Club number.
Use the member number from your 070 Club certificate. (ex: KA3X de N3DQU 599
Jay 010 kn). Call "CQ 070".

Bands - All HF bands, 160 thru 6 meters, no WARC bands. Work each station
once/band. All contacts must be 2-way PSK31. No repeater, cross-mode or
cross-band contacts allowed.

Scoring :
QSO points - Each contact with an 070 Club member counts one (1) QSO point,
dupes count zero (0) points. Contacts with non-members do not count for this

Multipliers - Each different 070 Club member number worked, the maximum to be
announced. (Note: The multiplier maximum is based on the total number of 070
Club members. This number will be announced approximately 3 days before the
start of this event. When the multiplier maximum is announced, new member
applications received by KA3X will not be processed until after the
conclusion of the 070 Club Three Day Weekend to keep the multiplier from

Bonus - Each contact with the following stations count as one hundred (100)
bonus points: OK1VSL, AA8QQ, KF4FHS. Bonus stations will be listed in a
separate category.

Final score - (Total QSO Points) x (Total Different 070 #'s) + (Total Bonus
Points) = Final Score.

Awards - Top scores from AS, EU, AF, NA, SA, OC and top scoring Bonus Station
will receive a certificate and a special endorsement for their 070 Club
certificate. In addition, all entries received showing 10 or more contacts
will receive an endorsement for their participation.

Entries - Send log data showing date, time(z), band, exchange received and
claimed score. Be sure to also include your call and 070 Club member number
in your entry. Please send your entry as a .txt file via email (best way) to or via post to:

Jay Budzowski
109 S. Northview Ave
New Castle, PA 16102-1633 USA

All entries must be received by July 1, 2002. A listing of logs received and
claimed scores will be posted on the 070 Club website as they are received.
All entries are subject to verification.

Power - Please keep your power output set to a reasonable level to avoid
QRMing the other guys.

Bonus Stations - You can work each Bonus Station once per band but please do
not ask them to QSY to another band for you. Bonus stations will try to work
as many bands as their equipment and propagation allows to give everyone a
chance for extra points but remember that they are in the contest too. No
guarantee that all Bonus Stations will be active on all bands.

Brag files - Calling "CQ 070" means you are in a contest mode, so no need to
send those brag files. If you want to operate in ragchew mode, send out a
general CQ instead.

Macros - Take advantage of your macro keys. Set up one with your exchange.

Alpha List - A good way to keep track of who you’ve worked. A dupe sheet will
be available from the website. For computer logging check out W3KM's Gen Log

Fun - That’s the whole idea!

Any questions send an e-mail to

SHORT NOTES: Among the boatloads of trivia on the DX and RTTY reflectors,
there is an occasional gem worth repeating and repeating. Here is a good
Bob W2KKZ has a blind friend who can use a computer. But he needs software
that, once a prefix is typed in, gives him the country, beam heading and
Now that's a tough order and I wouldn't have had any idea where to begin.
Dave AA6YQ, however, responded 13 minutes later; "DXView does that. See It's free.' What wonderful help the message portends! And
talk about response time! That's the kind of help that makes you feel good
people in general and about this hobby.

On the other side of the coin, a not so welcome Email from a Pactor II (and
soon Pactor III) fan suggested that PSK31 was a 'kindergarten' mode. Hmmm! I
respond but I did search my memory (a hazardous undertaking at my age Hi!) to
see if I could conjure up a time and place when I last saw or even heard of a
II QSO. Mailbox contacts don't count! I soon gave up. They are even more rare
than a RTTY ragchew these days!

Then I scanned Dima's UT5RP PSK31 DX notes. This kindergarten mode seems to
be pretty well represented. In fact, if you worked all the stations on the
list I estimate you would have racked up somewhere between 90 and 100
countries from all parts of the world. Not bad for a mere beginner.

Dima also mentions some future and some rare DX opportunities for fellow
kindergarteners: J73CCM Dominica on 16-18 February; A big DXpedition to
PW0T 18 February to 2 March, 24 hours a day, all bands
(; T88XF on 9-12 February. And reminds all of us to mark
our calendars for
the Tara Rumble on 24 April.

As always, send your DX notes to

Oh, by the way, Doug N6TQS will be the RTTY and the PSK operator on the KH1
Baker and Howland invasion 30 April-5 May. Maybe we will hear from him on
how he hopes to carve up his operating time between the two modes.

I spent some time playing around and learning at a propagation website
deluxe. You'll enjoy it as well, so take a look at It's a
fascinating facility.

Finally, Steve KF2TI mentioned an interesting piece of software in a recent
note. The address is What you'll find is not
exactly earth
shaking, but it is a tiny utility that converts anything to anything
else-miles to kilometers, temperatures from F to C and reverse and so on.
While I couldn't find a
dollars-to-doughnuts ratio, the table has a great variety of other elements.
It's small and worth having on your desktop.

Mentioned before, but look again department. The NASA photo of Mother Earth
at night is absolutely awe-inspiring. The entire globe can be visited and,
unless you
are from a very small town in the western USA or central Australia, you can
probably locate your own QTH. Truly remarkable! Go to --and
stay awhile!

Finally, Dick K8WT raises one of the more interesting questions of the day.
What, says he, can we as amateurs do to help out in a meaningful way in this
strange and
unsafe world in which we live? It's a good question without easy answers. I
noticed the article yesterday where President Bush got on the Florida
emergency net to
say hello. That will make good press for the ARRL, but it hardly defines the
need nor does it reflect great leadership on their part.

It brought to mind the situation in Desert Storm. At the time, my dear
departed friend TG9VT was handling thousands of messages from the naval
forces in the Gulf.
He and the other Aplink stations around the globe found themselves buried
with traffic. They handled it all because of their complete dedication and
operation. Yet, oddly enough, their service was somewhat limited because
there were no stations on the ground anywhere near the troops.

Their success led me to write to the head of ARRL suggesting that there was
much more to be accomplished with this technology and its existing network.
asked I, can't we get volunteers to put stations on land, not too far from
the troops, where with a packet network we could gather up a huge volume of
messages? Simple, I thought, and a mission to attract many volunteers and
offers of free equipment from willing manufacturers. Perhaps that was a far
too ambitious
proposal but it seemed reasonable at the time in light of what I had heard of
the mammoth phone-patch effort during the Vietnam era. I had a friend, now a
silent key,
who with his engineering students worked his station virtually 24/7 handling
phone patch traffic.

Too simple or too ambitious, apparently, because their answer followed the
usual bureaucratic path to a negative response. 'We are not empowered to do
such a
thing,' or words to that effect, repeated several times, convinced me they
would do anything to avoid the task of taking the initiative. Too bad,
really, because the need
was so obvious (at least based on the volume of Aplink traffic which could
not adequately serve the ground-based troops) that it could have been a
success. A great
and positive aura might have been built around amateur radio's service to the

As it turned out, only the telephone companies reaped much goodwill from that
action. According to my nephew, a doctor in a hospital way out in the desert
near the
front, ATT would occasionally drop a few phone booths near the troops and
give them free access to their family. Wonderful!

Now, the geography involved in today's multi-national action boggles the
mind. Yet we assume that the need for personal traffic is no less than
before, perhaps more
considering the isolation in which most of the forces operate. I surely can't
pretend to know what the answer is. But I don't think we have our hands
around an
up-to-date, viable volunteer service plan. I think the radio operators are
willing and able, I think the technology is in hand, but not much will happen
in a vacuum.

I said several times, 'I doubt I'll watch the SuperBowl.' Gen snorted and
said, 'Yeah!' She, as usual, was right. Having made the mistake of watching
the first few
minutes, I couldn't leave until it was over. What a finish! I surely won't
watch next year because there can't ever be another game like this one.
'Yeah,' I hear from

Hi Everyone,

I am reloading several Digimode programs again, after a PC crash, and bumped
into IZ8BLY's "Stream" program.  It looks very nice, does anyone have any
experience working in any of the modes available in this program, besides
PSK31? I find the MFSK en the PSK63 , PSK125 interesting, but haven't heard
anyone to try it with. Are there separate frequencies for these modes, since
they are a bit more broadband than PSK31?  How about it, Jay? (DQU)  You are
always in for an experiment, right?  hihi    73 de John KC0DEB

   Hey, glad to see you made it back safe and sound John! Hope your journey was an enjoyable one. I have in fact used IZ8BLY's Stream program to work MFSK16. The program is really different to use, especially if you are used to Digipan or MixW, but it appears to be a stable program and also has a very good help file. Suggest you use Ernie Mill's very fb tutorial on MFSK16/Stream to help fill in the blanks < >. Seems like the MFSK16 crowd is a very small but enthusiastic bunch and putting out a call on what seems to be a dead band will oftentimes bring them out of hiding hi! Most of them act surprised to hear another MFSK16 signal out there! I think I have maybe 10 or 12 different stations in the log on that mode, even managed to cross the pond on 10m. The mode is definitely different from PSK31 as it has FEC, but don't know if it is much of an advantage. Does sound neater on the air than PSK tho, an interesting mode to play around with...Jay N3DQU.

John -

There seems to be a small group of folks that explore some of
these modes. I found a group on Yahoo that tries to be a
clearinghouse for skeds for these. I think it's called sound-card-
mode-skeds, or something like that.

KF4HOU is the moderator/owner, I think.


P.S. No, I have never tried any of the other ones, either.

Re: MFSK16, PSK125F,...


Hi Jan Hendrik, seems you are back welcome home! MFSK is a great mode in
rough conditions, you can find signals on 20, 15 and 10 meters among the
RTTY sigs. I have seens PSK63 among the PSK31 sigs, but seems there is not
much interest for those.

I occurred to me that the 070 URL does not show up at all on the Yahoo

You might consider adding either the URL (or a note to look in

Re: Mysteries of the 070 Club Revealed!

Hi Jay,
I received my membership certificate (#180) in yesterdays mail.  Thanks to you and Jay.  I'll now be working on the "spots". 
Is there a web site or some other means of finding out what all the different Awards are and the Rules for them?  Also, the same for any PO-DXS (070) contests? 
I have more than enough contacts for the Rag Chewers certificate and will be submitting for it in the very near future.

Subject: [070] Mysteries of the 070 Club Revealed!

   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,

   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
and N3DQU.

   KA3X is the manager of the 070 Club and holds certificate #001. He is the
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@... >.

   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,
the endorsements (e.g. Aloha, Lower 48, Hot Dog!, etc.) and often spends his
hours thinking up new ones just to keep you guys busy! N3DQU is also the
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@... >.

   If they are lucky, KA3X and N3DQU may see each other once a month. There
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
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
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.
the same token, if you send an endorsement request to KA3X, then he must
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
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
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.
