Re: dit dit

 

Of course you must use your call to follow rules and you want the other station to know it's you.  An appropriate use would be when the other station signs and makes a comment in his sign off like "I'll be working 40 tonight" or maybe comments on something you talked abt in your qso.  The primary purpose is to acknowledge that you got the last comment


Re: dit dit

Jerry N9AVY
 

Putting it in you sign off macro is something I avoid.  What I do use is , “73 de  n9avy dit dit”   which conforms with FCC Parts 97:119 “ a)  Each amateur station , except a space station or a telecommand station , MUST TRANSMIT its assigned call sign on its transmiiting channel at the END of each transmission, and at least every ten minutes during a transmission, for the purpose of clearly making the source of the transmissions from the station known to those receiving the transmissions.  …  “  

 

I interpret that as the last signal in a QSO should contain your station call sign.   I would would err on the side of this than to be interpreted otherwise.   Have heard many U.S. PSK stations over the years sign off without bothering with an ID.  If I was an FCC monitor these stations would be getting warnings.

Dit Dit is used by CW ops. to acknowledge the last transmission.  Example, I sign clear with you then you sign clear with me.  I send a Dit Dit to let you know that I see that you signed off.  Quick and simple.  One of my pet peeves is the op that includes Dit Dit in their sign off macro.  They're acknowledging that you sent your last transmission before you did it.

Thanks for trying to get me my 50th state.  Propagation was not cooperating.  Glad you're home safely.  Thanks also for the bird list from Bombay Hook and the picture of your operating position.

Re: KC3EF Road Trip

Rick - N7WE
 

Welcome home!  Certainly understand and support the decision to skip the trip!  Those grids will be there when this is all over. 

The flow out of central Florida is definitely northbound.  But then I would be getting home too if I had been told my travel health care insurance that I bought and paid for was kaput on March 23!  Most of the Canadian snow birds we know buy coverage for the entire time they plan to be in Florida as the Canadian Health care insurance only covers you if you are in Canada.  Guess it was a little know clause in the small print (that no one ever reads) of those contracts that said if the government declares a travel restriction for the area you are in you have 10 days to get home or you pay for any health care costs incurred.  Lots of motor homes and 5th wheels headed up the turnpike towards I-75.

Will look for you tomorrow on the waterfall and maybe we'll be lucky.  We are awfully close in, but we've got lucky a time or two before.  Best to Kathy - pilot of the KC3EF/M grid ship!

KC3EF Road Trip

Richard Rohrer
 

As everyone has probably guessed the xyl and I are not making our March/April road trip.  Looks those grids will have to wait for another time.  We were working in MD last week and decided this Monday to head back to FL, which we are now safely home.  Not much traffic on I-95 going South, but lots of traffic going North and we saw two really bad traffic jams in SC and GA for the Northbound travelers.  I guess all of the VE's are going home, hi hi.  Look forward to working the upcoming contest.

Nope just check 15m for signals on 21.070. If I se the usual oscillation that is internal from rig, I assume band is dead.

When you check 15m, are you just looking for signals or calling CQ to see if anyone responds. 

 

I know you hate FT8, but if you check the FT8 frequency slots and see signals, it is an indication that the band might be open. You  do not even have to have FT8 software to do that.

Seems like I've been working more Europeans the past few days and at later times. This may be an indication of better propagation ahead. I keep checking 15m in case that band opens up... ya never know...
