Re: 30 Meter psk Freqs?

Bills4570@...
 

I would start at 10.130 MhZ and go from there. Good luck.

Regards, Bill
KG6EXF

Just added 30 meter capability to the station, but I'm not clear as
to what the "conventional" psk freqs are. Given the relatively narrow
band available, it shouldn't be too hard to simply scroll between
10.100 and 10.150, but I'd prefer to park the rig on the 30 meter
equivalent of 14.070 . . .

Rumble Team Announcement--The World Team

Steve W3HF
 

Okay, we'll break the ice. Since everyone else is afraid to
announce their teams, it is only fair that the defending titlists go
first.

I am pleased to announce The World Team lineup for the April
Rumble. The operators who will attempt to break our record-setting
score from October are:

OK1VSL Ludek
ZL3JT Duncan
JA7EMH Osamu (Sam)
YV5AAX Aldo
W3HF Steve, Gaffer

We look forward to an exciting (and satisfying) contest, starting
about 23 days from now.

Good luck to all.

070 Club rule change

N3DQU@...
 

Dear Fellow PSKers -
Recent increases in the postage rates and the phenomenal growth of the 070
Club this past year now make it very difficult to offer free membership in
the 070 Club without incurring excessive out-of-pocket expenses. We greatly
appreciate the donations we have received from the members and thank you all
for your generosity, but the cost of postage has unfortunately far
outstripped the donations received. For this reason we must ask that the
following rate structure be implemented, effective immediately:

U.S. Basic certificate- $1.00 (US); Additional upgrade stickers - $1.00
(US) per application, or one (1) SASE per each application.
DX Basic certificate- $2.00 (US); Additional upgrade stickers - $1.00
(US) per application. IRC's not being accepted at this time.
Ragchewer’s certificate - $1.00 (US) for US members, $2.00 (US) for DX
members.

Please continue to send your logs and QSL images via email. Applications
will be held until funds are received. You can save yourself money by
applying for your basic certificate along with a log of 300 contacts.
Endorsements and Attaboys will continue to be offered free. Any questions,
send email to JHudak3rd@aol.com. Thank you all for your interest and
understanding....Best 73 de KA3X and N3DQU.

IOTA NA-188

Steve W3HF
 

I tried to send this once before, but it didn't seem to make it out
of the Yahoo system. If you get two of these, my apologies in advance.

For those of you chasing IOTAs on PSK, I just found XF4IH on
20m. It's a DXpedition to Cacaluta Island, NA-188, off the southern
coast of Mexico. Martin (XE2ML I think) is the digimode operator.

They will be on the island until 31 March. More info on the trip is
on a web page, which is linked from their QRZ.com listing. If you
look carefully at their page, you will find links to mirrored pages
in English, for those of you who (like me) do not understand Espanol.

73,
Steve

KC2HNC - TARA's New Contest Chairman

ny2u@...
 

Greetings:

After 10 years of serving as TARA's Digital Contest Chairman I'm stepping down from this position effective immediately. Now that doesn't mean I'll be going away totally, I'll just be less involved in the overall operations of TARA's PSK & RTTY contests.

As I stated I've been doing this on behalf of TARA for just a little over 10 years now. I'm quite proud of my accomplishments over this period of time, most notably the TARA RTTY Sprint. I had barely gotten my feet wet in the field of RTTY and here I was try to develop a contest on behalf of my club. I first had the assistance of Peter Hines, N2KAD and between the two of us we got the 1st TARA RTTY Sprint up and running. Since that memorable date I can remember many of times of how I asked for help from such notable hams as Ron, K5DJ, Don, AA5AU & Shelby, K4WW. There were also many more so I had better stop right here before I forget to mention somebody and I'd feel terrible about that.

Quite a few years ago I had the great fortunes of working with a talented and gifted Ernie Mills, WM2U. Ernie was the driving force and designer that purposed we (TARA) sponsor the World's very first PSK contest. Well, it took a whole 30 seconds to realize that he wasn't kidding and I think within a week he had a full blown set of "Rules & Regulations" waiting for my first review. As usual with any of Ernie's work it was brilliant and ahead of its time! Ernie's never subscribed to the rule of the "Neanderthal Hams" and after many years of all sorts of HF contesting he finally wanted to present his spin on what contesting should be. Well, I think you all are aware of what happened next. TARA sponsored Ernie's ideas and recommendations and the rest is now in the history books.

There are a few more accomplishments I'm proud of but that's not what I'm here to tell you. I'm here to thank each of you that have helped me along this long road. It's been incredible the amount of support that you folks have rendered me and I'll never for get you. I've made some really stupid mistakes along this journey but each and every time I would have someone kind enough to reach their hand out and guide me in the right direction. Again, I thank all of you that have given me your guidance and have shown total patience from someone like myself that can be very pigheaded at times.

If there are any of you that I've offended during my shift I apologies from the bottom of my heart. If there were some of you that offered suggestions or assistance that I never responded to, or simply overlooked, again, please accept my apologies. And for those of you that we never quite saw things in the same light of day, I hope you didn't take it personally, it's just that we all think and act differently.  One thing I've tried over the years is to admit when you're wrong, and not just accept the praise that this position brings at times. There were times I had to accept the blame when things didn't turn out right, but that was and still is part of the job. I hope all of you have found that to be true of me.

OK. With that all said and done I'd like to introduce TARA's "New" Digital Contest Chairman, Ed Eades, KC2HNC. Ed is a new amateur, only being licensed for about 2 years now. Already he has taken a fond liking for the digital modes and has become a total team player. Within our club Ed has exhibited his skills to be a team leader and he has a great ability to "get the job done!"

Ed first approached me with his offer to help me out with the digital contest stuff and I in turn asked if he'd be willing to take this position over. Immediately he replied sure! But, he made it clear that he'd need more help. He wanted it to be a total team that supported our contest efforts and not a one man show!

Ed has a few ideas of his own that he would like to try in the upcoming days/months/years, so please keep an eye out for his announcements as they come. Also, he's made it perfectly clear that the only thing he is doing is overseeing the operations/sponsorship of our present PSK & RTTY contests. He is looking forward to working side-by-side with Ernie Mills, WM2U, with the PSK Rumbles and myself with the RTTY Sprint. I know that he'll work diligently to make sure that TARA's presence in the HF Digital Contesting remains at the top of the list!

I ask of each of you to please welcome Ed aboard to this new position and I hope you'll show him the same guidance and support as you have given me over the years. If you have suggestions, send them along. If you'd like to volunteer your services on the TARA Digital Team, I'm sure that would delight him.   Most of all keep him informed of your likes/dislikes. After all, these contests are NOT just TARA's, they belong to each of you that participate each year!

"Dead bands"

Duncan <zl3jt@...>
 

de Jungle Telegraph
The apparent loss of HF comms is associated with the effects of a 'Coronal Mass Ejection'
(CME) from the Solar flare Magnitude M1.6 that occurred on the 22nd March. This flare
was directed towards Earth. The solar figures are not current, only the previous
days figures, but the K index is the most relevant, updated every 3 hours. A level
of over 3 indicates geomagnetic storm conditions. The Earth's magnetic field is disturbed,
and consequently our electromagnetic transmissions are affected by attenuation or
enhancement of particular bands. It is interesting that in the current situation
6M is open from VK/ZL to USA....and Kostas is using 6M Hi! Be nice to see you on
6M Kostas...I have worked S5 and 9A recently....It's not lousy band conditions at
all really! Just for some!

Thanks for the Fall Rumble

Steve W3HF
 

To All:

I would also like to add my thanks to the entire TARA Team for
their efforts in creating the premier contest in the PSK arena.

Ernie WM2U is the front guy, publicizing the contest, building the
web page, creating the rules, and all-around organizing it. His is a
big job, and the contest is what it is because of his efforts.

I only recently learned of the efforts of Joe N2NOU and Karen
KB2UUC. They work behind the scenes after the contest, creating
the certificates and handling the packaging/mailing.

Finally, there's "Mr Bill" NY2U. As President of the sponsoring
organization, Mr Bill is the "big kahuna" of the contest.

Thank you to all of you, as well as anyone else I may have missed.
It has been my privilege to participate in the last two runnings of
the contest, and I look forward to many more.

73,
Steve
W3HF

P.S. I haven't seen any contest traffic on the reflector for the next
contest, in only 27 days! Are any of you other teams going to be
back? We will--more details soon.

Solar flux is 170, not too bad, A index a little high at 10 but the bands sound pretty normal here, lots of spots coming through on the cluster and just worked VP6DI on 17 CW. It's been pretty windy for a couple of days, sure your antenna is still up? :-)
