Rick:

Hope you'll be around with us for a very long time !

Most of those numbers were added while I was chasing the WTW, 24/7, other endorsements and working contests. I had a couple days a week when work schedule was light and I got to be home to work 20-40 contacts a day. Those days are mostly gone now. Propagation just isn't what is was back in 2006 when I started working PODXS endorsements.

Thanks Jerry.  That was what I thought.  But I was hoping you had some trick way to download the entire LONPs completed in one swoop from the Progress Checker.  Guess that couple of days was the price one pays for being way up there on the LONP Honor Roll.  I won't live long enough to match what Steve, Delos, Tom, and you have accomplished!

I copied (printed) all the LONP data from checker and proceeded to check off worked stations. Using Open Office Calc. It took a couple days, but it was worth it.

Hope this answers your question.

Do you have a slick way of gathering that data from the Progress Checker?  All I have been able to do is copy the worked stations column one LONP award level at a time and then paste to Excel.  Lenghty process, but with almost 1000 Qs, if you are doing it like me, you have a much loooonnnnger process - hi hi!

Re: Frustration

Jerry N9AVY
 

Over the past few months I've chatted with several operators who have expressed their opinion that FT-8 is boring and find more satisfaction in PSK. While I'm sure there are probably those who like FT-8, I eel that many hams are about "communicating" more than making contacts. Hams have always been about making friendly contacts with other hams... it's part of our heritage !

I'm being heard, but I think it's (1) propagation or (2) the station changed frequency very fast.

Tried to grab one of the newer 070 members today and for the last few days, but he seems to sign out and change frequency in one quick move. Even tried "tail-ending" which I hate to do, but it didn't work. Also tried calling him after the other station signed. That didn't work either. Ran out of options . aaaaaarrrrrggggghhhhhh ! Oh the pain of not being heard... guess it's time to put amp back in the station.

I have 2 Excel files (which need updating.)  One has the member by callsign, the other by PODSX number.  It comes in handy when looking for new numbers and I get to keep track of my current total.  I have a column for LONP's also.  I also put the number in my comments block on fldigi and qrz if I remember at the time.

Eric:

What a did a while back was to take the 070 member list and put it it an Excel file. I then took all the LONP data from checker (mine) and manually entered the stations I worked (N9AVY, 0454 in one column) the ones I worked were highlighted in yellow. This was all in a file which I bring up on screen. When I work someone I refer to file to see if that station is in the list.

File is updated via K5SP's new member posts; so , it's pretty much current. The initial start up took a while (couple of days) but I believe it was worth it. When adding new members they are inserted at end of list and using the A--> Z icon on Excel they get inserted in proper order. The recent changes in call signs & SK was another upgrade to program.

I can ski through it when I hear a new call and pretty much find out if station has 070#. I tried to get the software listed on 070 site to work, but had zero success... probably just me, but I'd been doing something similar to this when I had on a Commadore 64 back in 80's for tracking 10-10 chapters and point upgrades.

Am sure someone will say it's a lot of work and suggest some other way, but it works for me. BTW, I think that the checker automatically inserts 070 numbers when you don't list them ???

Jerry,

Thanks for the reply.  OK, I get it.

However, if the 070# is in my Comment field, then the op gave it to me during the QSO.  Unfortunately HRD does not let me filter text strings like “070” in the Comments field.  Why, when HRD allows filtering in almost every other field, I don’t know.  It would be a huge help if I could.

Since I have some time I’ve started checking my log for PODX 070 numbers and filling them in a custom field in HRD Logbook.  Typically when they come up in a QSO I’ve entered them in the Comments field.  Right now I am going through my log one by one - this is pretty tedious given that I have over 13,000 QSOs

Is there an automated way to do this?
