Don,

I just went to the usual PSK frequencies and called CQ but very few responses. Making less than 10 per hour, if that many, isn't worth the effort when you are trying to give as many as possible a contact.  Even on 80 SSB tonight, I spent 30 minutes to get 4 QSO's.. I switched to FT8 and ran 47 stations in a row.  I gave RTTY a try on 20m and worked about 15 fairly quickly, and then nothing.... 

Drop me a note and we can make a sked for PSK if you wish..

Buddy, I watched summit Dx and DX Heat, etc. And never saw any PSK spots for the 13 Colonies.  I wondered if you just had to stay in a PSK watering hole and see if any of the Fab 13 made an appearance.  It just seems wicked inefficient -- so I didn't do that. 

I should have checked here.

Otherwise, I spent hours saying my call in the massive "pick me" pileups, and endless FT8 calls, all with my measly 10-15 watts of Indian QRP horsepower.  As a low power operator, I clearly have to learn some new tricks to complete my homework.  

I really would have liked to get a 13er on PSK. Maybe next year!

And thank you for being an operator.  Very kind of you!!

David I appreciate all you do for the club.

I thought it was interesting that less then 24 hours after the sprint ended that someone wanted results. They just don't understand what you do.

I actually contacted K2L using PSK31 during the Firecracker Sprint contest on 40 meters on Saturday.  So there were a few stations that used it, but not many...which is too bad.  But PSK is slow compared to SSB or FT8 and when you want to contact as many as possible in the time given you go with what is the fastest.

At this point, a very impressive list of 15 Members have uploaded their FD logs under the PODXS 070 Club name. THANK YOU!!

New Field Day Rules will create a unique opportunity for all PODXS 070 Club members to submit their logs as Club members and the ARRL will publish an aggregate score for the Club.

The results are not all in yet. You have 7 days after to send them in. Don't
you think they might want to wait until everyone has had a chance to send
them in? I hope they do.
There's the small issue of actually writing the scorer that I have to
address, too. ;-)

It gets easier over time, but every event has its own little quirks. The
first time through, I've been taking the week between the contest and
the upload cutoff to devote to the writing/scoring. This week is no
different.

Once I have things coded, I'll be generating results and emailing them
out so everyone can have a chance to review their results before the
final overall results are posted.

Re: 40m Sprint

John,


Oh, yes we do have ticks here in the chaparral.  I've pulled more off the dog than I could ever count.

In the silver lining department, we have a lot of Western Fence Lizards here.  They have an natural immunity to Lyme disease.  Once a tick bites a Western Fence Lizard, they are cured of Lyme disease, so this might be why we don't have as many cases of that scourge as other parts of the country.

I had other obligations over the weekend and could only hand out a few points in the Sprint.  I did see you and a lot of stations in the east that could not hear me.

Re: Return of radio

Jon, K4KLB <k4klb@...>
 

Sounds like a possible FedEx SmartPost shipping/delivery where FedEx is the carrier but hand it off to the USPS for delivery. If FedEx gets it to the USPS hub near you quick enough that it will cause the package to ne delivered early the package will be bounced around non-sensically until it can return when it will be delivered on the projected arrival date. The USPS will NOT deliver the package prior to that date. Same deal with UPS SurePost. When I place an order I always make sure they do not use either of these hybrid shipping methods as I am not impressed by the USPS when it comes to packages.


Re: Going to Junk File

David, K9DWR
 

Chris,

From what I can tell, this is happening only to you (I'm not getting notifications of anyone else getting unsubscribed for the spam flag). According to the Documentation, this is likely something in your email client flagging 070 messages as junk, which the system is reading so unsubscribing.

From the docs:
"Reviewing members who were removed because of reported spam
Some email providers notify Groups.io when group messages end up in their (the provider’s) users’ spam folders. Most likely, the group messages were automatically flagged as spam by the email provider rather than having been specifically marked as spam by the users.

When Groups.io receives such a notification, the system automatically unsubscribes that member from the group. Groups.io also sends the member an email with a link that lets them automatically and quickly resubscribe to the group if the spam flagging was a mistake. The email lets the member know to check their spam folder and mark any messages in there from Groups.io as not spam, which trains the email provider’s spam filters to make fewer mistakes about Groups.io emails."

As Steve has suggested, a review of filters in your client may be in order. Have you recently changed email clients?
