Jerry,


I saw you and tried but just couldn't make the connection.  Propagation was pretty much limited to east coast for me that night, however I normally get into all areas.  Better condx should be coming soon.  I hope.

I really wanted to put the FT817 back to the test this weekend but I had so many things to get done for the weekend.

One think about retirement, you never get a day off. On top of that, looks like I got a good spider bite on my arm from FD. I been through two antibiotics, creams, antihistamines. It’s finally looking better yesterday. Funny thing, it never hurt a bit. Just a huge big red mark with a bit in middle. Oh well. 

I was hoping to climb walls and shoot webs out my arms...never happened.

No, the results cannot be posted until end date for log submission, which is one week from the close of the contests. 

Unfortunately, our old scorer no longer works, and K9DWR is having to rewrite scorers for each contest, and these do not provide the standings like the old scorer (yet).

I would assume not since ops have up to 1 week to submit their logs. So in order to put out any official results you would have to wait until after  the time period has expired to ensure you had all qualifying submissions.

Your reply came straight to my Inbox ( Weird )

I rarely answer Messages, unless I have a comment to make/help with

or a problem I can't rectify, by going back through other Posts

or finding a solution from other sources, namely Linux Communities

so we'll see what happens.

Immediately behind my lot is the Palatlakaha River - 1/2 mile wide and 6 inches deep - known to us northerners as swamp, but the HOA calls it wetlands.  There be snakes and gators!  No one walks their pet behind us - not more than once anyway.

40m Sprint - my results

GA - Bob - K4VBM
 

I submitted my .ADI file for the 2020 40m Firecracker Sprint.
All my activity was at the beginning -- I looked quite frequently on actual Sunday, but really didn't see many traces
on the waterfall like I did during the first 6 hours.

Propagation was very strange on 40m - mostly local.
I had 32 contacts in my chosen 6 hour segment.
Here is the break down by state/province:

OH - 5
MD - 2
NE - 1
FL - 7
NY - 1
KY - 1
PA - 3
TX - 3
NC - 4
ON - 1
IN - 1
IL - 1
CO - 1
MI - 1

I got 10 new LONP, and completed the CarolinaDouble endorsement (yeah, I had more than 32 contacts in total,
and one was SC).
Was a fun weekend!
Thanks to everyone for the contacts! :)

Stay safe, and 73,

One of the things I noticed in this year's contest was that FL & GA was missing - no propagation. I saw N7WE & KC3FL being worked by others but heard neither FL stations. Usually have a pipeline into FL, but not this time.

All,

I did get Art K7DWI, a total of 14 contacts here. Tom KD6TR was making a
serious effort late. 40 isn't great during the summer in Alaska. By the
time everyone disappeared, there were several hours left until sunset.

Thanks to all.

This was one of the more frustrating contests.  I started at 23:00 when I started finally seeing some waterfall action, but it was few and far between all evening.   40 was acting like 20 in that I would start a contact, and then it was gone, never to come back.  
I started one contact with a ham in San Antonio with a very strong waterfall... midway through it was totally gone.  Not even a trace. 
But it was still a fun time, even with the frustration.   Log is submitted, and we'll wait for the next contest!  

Hope everyone had a safe and happy 4th!
