That file is updated automatically by one of KJ4IZW's scripts, as are all the files found on hamclubs.info. No, there is no response from him about fixing these and other problems.

I will look as far as I can to help, unfortunately,  I do not have access to that server. 

This is something we will work on when time permits. 

And that file is the one you need to download and manually fix for your program. 

Let me know if I can help!

Ok, well somebody is updating that file or are you saying it is automatically being updated??

Well, that is what I have been doing is manually making the corrections.  But what I’m wondering is who is updating that file cause I’m sure that David is not

Dan,

That file is not our membership database (spreadsheet).  It is one of those files on hamclubs.info that is generated by a script owned by David Westbrook, now K2DW, ex KJ4IZW, and we do not have access to correct it. David is no longer responding for requests to check/fix the scripts.

In the interim, you can download that file, edit the offending line by deleting, save the edited file, then upload to your software.  If you need help with this, I will do it for you.

Cindy,

Welcome at last!

We have enjoyed your participation in the Valentine Sprint and St. Pat's Contests. I certainly benefited from your participation, giving me YL bonus points.

We have also enjoyed the participation of your very talented daughter, Danielle, KE8JNU. I'm surprised it took her so long to convince Mom that this was a truly fun group.

We welcome you and look forward to your continued participation! Fellow members, take a peek at Danielle's QRZ page!

Sprint Rules – Work a 6 hour block of your choice. For Scoring, your 6 hour block will start with the hour you select on the Upload Link page and continue for the next 6 hours

For Rules and detailsClick Here: 31 Flavors Sprint Rules


This is one of our most interesting contests.
If you have never tried these different PSK modes, don't be shy.  Jump in and give it a go! 

 

Take your time and be patient.  You’ll be an expert in no time!

 

Last year, 22 logs were submitted. Lee, N5SLY, won Top Dawg honors and First Place in the 50W category with a spectacular 79 QSOs utilizing all 6 modes, and a score triple that of his closest competitor.

 

Let’s see if we can give Lee some competition this year ! 

Hope to work you in all 6 modes

makes a lot of sense.  I will try to do that in my future contests.  I might have 'grabbed' the qso control at times when I worked a station I hadn't seen in a while and said so even when I was the BBB station.  I'll try to be more mindful of that in the future.  I do like to spend a moment even during contests to make a relevant comment like 'glad to see you working your very first PSK contact.'  

I was surprised that I made as many contacts as I did on Sat urday's St Pats Day contest.  Might not be a winner or even a placer, but I had a great time seeing a lot of my 070 friends.

> Jerry said "070 contest can be whatever you want them to be.  It’s your choice. "

 

I think that's the point. Some people may want to chat a little and say hi to an old friend, or offer a welcome to a new one. The trick is figuring out when to say more and when not to.

 

I'd suggest that unless you really know the person, the decision should really be up to the one who calls CQ. He/she is the one controlling the frequency, and the responder should follow his/her lead. And here's where the exchange sequence (per the original message in this thread) matters. 

 

Peter postulated the following sequence of exchanges:

 

--Station AAA calls CQ contest.

--Station BBB answers either by sending AAA de BBB or depending on the contest just sends his call BBB.

--Station AAA acknowledges BBB (this is important if more than one station answers the CQ) by sending BBB and the required exchange, turns it back to BBB by sending de AAA or BK.

--Station BBB acknowledges the receipt of the exchange and sends his exchange: QSL exchange and BK or de BBB.

--Stations acknowledges the receipt of BBB’s exchange and moves on: TU QRZ contest.

 

In this sequence, AAA is the first to send the formal exchange. If s/he sends only a simple exchange (such as what's listed above), then BBB should reply in kind (only a simple exchange). But if AAA were to send something more like: 

 

N9AVY de W3HF good to see you again Jerry. 599 PA kn

 

then Jerry will know it's okay to say "hi Steve. been a long time. 599 IL kn"

 

The point is that the responders to a CQ shouldn't try to force their desires for QSO format on the one calling CQ, since they are (by definition) the responder. Although I'm usually one to use relatively terse exchanges (though not an absolute minimalist), I'll sometimes chat a bit with a friend, or explain what "CQ 070 TDW" means to someone who might want to join the club. But if I'm running in "terse mode" and someone else goes into "verbose mode" (and tells me everything about his station, including version of OS and what kind of printer is connected, and then sends best wishes to me, my family, my friends, my dog and my mailman) then I'll get frustrated because I'm wasting time when I want to make more contacts (even if they are few and far between). And since I'm the one running the frequency, that should be my choice to make.
