Wow!!  Knocked my socks off.


I received a QSL and absolutely beautiful, classy, professional certificate from Larry, WB5CXC recognizing my single QSO with their Lake Sam Rayburn A.P.E.


To Larry, WB5CXC, Charles, W5WF and Ken, K5KRB, "Fantastic" job, guys. With less than ideal propagation, your 65 QSOs gave a lot of PODXS'ers a nice challenge. You are pushing the bar even higher!


Hope to see many more APEs making the effort next year to enjoy this great opportunity to excite their fellow PODXS members.

Larry and Ken,

Looking forward to your APE. Just to clarify, will your primary operating be on 40 - 10M or 40 - 20M?

I like your switchover plan.  Hopefully you will be able to post your band changes, too.

Now if we get some good propagation we'll make it work. Good luck and enjoy the adventure.

WB5CXC and K5KRB will start our APE at Lake Rayburn on Aug. 19 - 21.  We  will operate 40 -10M depending on band conditions.  We are going to try something different this year.  During the day we will tune over to 17M on the hour for at least 15 minutes, and during the evening and nights we will change to 30M.We might be joined by one or two other of our team.  We give out custom QSL cards and also a custom certificate.  See you on the bands.

Rick,

As for 11a.....

Make certain that you pass on a big thank you to the wife from those of us who were trying to hunt you down for the last few months.
We certainly hope that the XYL really enjoyed herself, radio notwithstanding.  Oh yeah... you too.  It must have been quite an odyssey.

We are home and have had a few minutes to catch our breath.  Though I'd share these final trip thoughts with the group.

Things I learned on the road.
1.  If you forget to take the soldering iron, you will buy one.
2.  No matter what the "experts" tell you, propagation is not reciprocal!  They can hear you when you can't hear them and you can hear them when they can't hear you.
3.  Terrain matters.  Terrain really, really matters!  Mountain tops are much better than canyons.
4.  You wouldn't believe how quiet a really quiet site is!  Electrical noise is the invisible pollution and unless you are miles from anywhere...it is polluted.
5.  It is fun to be on the other side of a pile up.
6.  Dense smoke kills microwave communications (cell and WiFi), and I'm not sure how it effects HF, but I'm pretty sure it does.
7.  There are really very few bad operators out there, but it only takes one to screw things up for everyone.  Most bad operators don't know they are bad operators, but telling them would be a waste of frequency.
8.  Murphy travels with you when you operate portable.
9.  Off the grid, when the battery is drained, you are done.  (I knew that!  Why did I keep forgetting?)
10.  Operating is much, much easier with internet access.  I'd gotten used to instant info fill, automatic logging, spots, etc. and was taking it for granted.  Not anymore!
11.  There is a lot more to a road trip adventure than ham radio, but ham radio sure adds a lot!

And one thing I knew before, but was reminded of over and over again....

My loving, supportive wife (even though she is not a ham) encourages my radio activity, making it even better!  Thank you sweetheart!

Randy -

It's on the web site. 

www.podxs70.com

Then use the nav bar on the right to go to LONP > 070 member info.

Since there are over 2400 lines, it's easiest to just do a search on your callsign.
