Keslie,

Good seeing you, it has been a while.

I lost you in the middle of our contact so did not log it.  I did copy your info but never saw you again so do not know if you got mine.

Re: Field Day Rule Changes for the Pandemic

Yep and Scott N3FJP has already made the necessary changes

for his software for Field Day Sorry to take up bandwidth

but here is what Scott has done

In case you haven't heard, Field Day 2020 is now a whole new ballgame!


Field Day Log 6.3 is Now Available!

Yesterday, ARRL announced a special waiver for Field Day 2020:

1)      For Field Day 2020 only, Class D stations may work all other Field Day stations, including other Class D stations, for points.
Field Day rule 4.6 defines Class D stations as “Home stations,” including stations operating from permanent or licensed station locations using commercial power. Class D stations ordinarily may only count contacts made with Class A, B, C, E, and F Field Day stations, but the temporary rule waiver for 2020 allows Class D stations to count contacts with other Class D stations for QSO credit.
2)      In addition, for 2020 only, an aggregate club score will be published, which will be the sum of all individual entries indicating a specific club (similar to the aggregate score totals used in ARRL affiliated club competitions).
Ordinarily, club names are only published in the results for Class A and Class F entries, but the temporary rule waiver for 2020 allows participants from any Class to optionally include a single club name with their submitted results following Field Day.
The full text of ARRL's announcement, with additional details is here:

http://www.arrl.org/news/temporary-rule-waivers-announced-for-2020-arrl-field-day

I have updated the Field Day software to accommodate point scoring for Delta station to Delta station QSOs.  If you plan to operate in a category other than Delta, version 6.2 is fine, but if you will be operating in the Delta class, please upgrade to version 6.3.  You will find version 6.3 here:

http://n3fjp.com/fieldday.html

And the upgrade steps here:

http://n3fjp.com/upgradestepscontest.html

As always, upgrades are free to registered users!


Field Day and Clubs!

I am very excited about ARRL's 2020 modification!  While, Lord willing, we will be able to share Field Day together at the same location in 2021, the opportunity for clubs to experience a contest weekend together virtually this time will be a new, fun and exciting experience for many!

Lots of clubs, who are passionate about Field Day, haven't yet experienced the joys of participating as a club in the many other great contests we have to enjoy annually.  The same techniques that clubs will use this Field Day, in the social distancing environment to stay together while apart, can be applied to ARRL November Sweepstakes, ARRL International DX, CW World Wide DX and many other contests. 

Sharing contest weekends together virtually, as we each operate from home with lots of fun, support and camaraderie, has taken Amateur Radio joy and excitement to a whole new level for our club!   Regularly operating together virtually to turn in combined club scores has thoroughly invigorated our group!  I'm very glad that many of you will be able to experience it for Field Day 2020!

Last time I wrote in more detail how our club shares contest weekends together using tools like:

- The Virtual Clubhouse text chat room we set up on the free Discord App:  http://www.nemarc.org/clubhouse.html
-  My free Club Score Processor, so you can see how your club is doing individually and in total in real time:  http://www.n3fjp.com/clubscore.html
-  And I should have mentioned Zoom, which is new to us in the last few months, but is an awesome tool for both impromptu and scheduled virtual gatherings:  https://www.zoom.us/

For lots more details, please see the How can our group enjoy Field Day together virtually, while staying apart? section here:  http://n3fjp.com/news/news2020-05-06.html

And if you aren't currently participating with a club, find one or start one!


Enjoy Field Day gang, and see how your club fairs in total compared to our Northeast Maryland Amateur Radio Contest Society!  We are planning to bring it Field Day weekend!  :)

I'm looking forward to working you!

Re: TDW Propagation

Eric <radio@...>
 



From the appearance of my waterfall last evening, the tale of poor propagation is a myth.  There were several traces on 20, and 40 was almost wall to wall with traces.  It appears that on day to day operation, the lack of propagation is caused by lack of operation.

Truer words were never spoke.

I think this is part of the underlying problem with FT8 and PSK mentioned in the “Creep” thread.  They are gobbling up the spectrum because the hot bands are packed!  Even the “off” bands are busy over there.

Some just don't know how easy it is logging today. Back before computers we used paper & pencil. What fun keeping track of everything ???

Hey Bo, there is a Contest Message board and a CHAT option at https://groups.io/g/070ClubContests site. So if you get subscribed that is a great place for a CHAT. Email only gets looked at once and a while for most of us.

I'm 'new' at this, well just returning after some FT8 diversion, and wonder if any scheduled nets are held?  I'll chek the web site when this is over.
I noted that this is a 'chatty' contest, not rapid fire like RTTY.
I had fun on the phone with my daughter in SLC us working the band from both directions, I'm in NC
I'll be around most of the time.

Best place to find stations is to use www.hamspots.net

If you're not registered you will have to make up an account

Then once accepted click on Digital Modes

Click on PSK 3 Bands choose what bands you want

save each band you want to follow
