Thanks Jim, I got one for today.  Resting my back after two intense days of travel.  I’ll be back on around 0000UTC to try to get one for the 30th as I have cataract exams tomorrow and I’m not sure if I’ll be able to see for hours after. LOL. I should have rescheduled it! HI HI Thanks snd we are close but I’ve made contacts within 5 miles on 20 during the day voice and 160 to CA during the day in 2018.

Re: 070 Award Checker log errors

Darl DEEDS
 

I use a general logging program for all contacts. If you only use Fldigi you may have an issue. But if you use one of the many free general logging programs you can export and import from any program into your  general logger. From there as I did this morning. I export a partial log, only psk31 contacts. I had it done and sent in less then 5 minutes. If you don't use a general logging program I highly encourage you to do so. It makes it much easier to do many things.

Re: 070 Award Checker log errors

 

It's good that the checker requires you to upload the whole log every time.  If you uploaded the wrong info like a wrong grid by accident and then discovered  your error,

later, all you have to do is upload again and it's fixed.  If it didn't do that there would probably have to be some kind of manual fix and that would probably require Jerry to manually fix it.
As far as how long it takes the checker to process a log, I just uploaded 15237 contacts and it took 69 seconds after my call went to the top of the list to finish.

Re: 070 Award Checker log errors

Jerry N9AVY
 

JoAnn and all:

I use N3FJP's AC Log for my main log and pretty much do what he does. (Except for the twice a year thing)   I can filter only PSK31 data from day 1; so all that goes to checker is PSK31 contacts only. 

It necessary to send in ENTIRE PSK31 LOG every time you send to checker; otherwise, all your previous awards will be zeroed out. Reloading entire log again will correct that.

Don't blame me because it's been that way since the checker was created.  

Hope this clarifies things.

JoAnn,
If you don't mind this is what I do.  I upload my PSK31 contacts when I feel like it.  Not necessarily after a contest or every month. Whatever feels right to you.

Yes you upload only you PSK31 contacts,  and yes you upload all you PSK31 contacts, (the ones that were uploaded before.)

I have all my contacts in one log that I can filter for PSK31 contacts only.  Then I export those filtered contact to a file.

Actually you only need to upload before the endorsements are mailed out.  Right now that is twice a year.

I hope this helps.

Re: 070 Award Checker log errors

JoAnn Donaldson
 

I don't quite understand what your talking about. I think your saying that even if I have uploaded a file before, which I did to get my 070 Number that I have to reload those files plus the PSK files from Field Day? Does this mean I have to have a separate Log just for PSK contacts. Then after the contest, upload the entire log again,even if I have already gotten credit for the previous upload? This log can get time consuming and the ADIF will get very huge after a while. I would think that after a while that it would take forever for the 070 Log checker to process a single file.

To be honest I am leaning towards the 'whole log (PSK31)' method; I appreciate there may be special situations like the Alaska endorsement.  Tracking some of those endorsements on my end would get tedious and definitely prone to error(s).

I hope that you participated in the 2021 FD and enjoyed that experience. The PODXS 070 Club offers Stickers to reward you for that participation and for uploading to ARRL.

There are two stickers available.

1)  Firstly there is the existing Field Day Participation Sticker

This is for anyone who participates in Field Day in any way, (including setup/tear-down, KP duty, etc.) either individually or as part of a group.

2) Secondly, - The Field Day Club Upload Sticker

The second Sticker is for folks who participate on their own (not part of another group) and upload their log info to ARRL

For 2021 Field Day Entry go to:  https://field-day.arrl.org/fdentry.php

 

Important: If you participated in FD, please upload to ARRL indicating your club affiliation as PODXS 070.  “PODXS 070” will appear in the drop-down for Club or Group Name. All you have to do is select (click on) it.
Note that according to the rules, that upload may consist of:

"Cabrillo log or list of stations worked by band/mode (dupe sheet)"

 

You may upload using only 1 Club association. So if you are already part of another Field Day group and uploading your log as part of their score, you can’t earn our Field Day Club Upload Sticker. You can still earn the Field Day Participation Sticker.

3) Notify me: I will put you on the list!

 

Simply send an email directly to me robinstan (at) Hotmail (dot) com by Tuesday, July 27, 2021. (Last day to upload to ARRL) 

Please use 2021 Field Day in the subject line.  

The body of your email needs only your Call and Member number. Please note if you also uploaded your log info to ARRL.

You will be eligible for the FD Participation Sticker even if you do not upload to ARRL.

 The Field Day Club Upload Sticker may not be available next year. Grab it while you can.

Last year 36 members participate in FD and 17 members uploaded and we had a 5,198 Score. Let’s beat that this year!

 Re Stan's instructions.
I still remain slightly confused. For Item 1: Field Day Participation Sticker do I notify Stan?

Item 2 is clear. Stan sez to send email with 
only your Call and Member number.

I actually sent Stan email with 
Call and Member number
and stated that I wrkd FD and uploaded to ARRL. I hope
this will get me both stickers.
Best PSK fun in years. Now we need the eastern bros. to stay up late
next weekend or Bob and I will be lonely. I think Milt goes to bed to
early for 40M as well.

FD and PODXS Members

Jerry N9AVY
 

Those of you who participated in FD this weekend should have found a bunch of new & old members to add to your LONP totals.   There are instructions on PODXS page for numbers after 2786.

May have worked some I'm not sure of, but I do know that I added 9 more members to my LONP.

Would like to see more new LONP members in near future... especially with Firecracker 40m test coming up. During FD 40m was very active during daylight hours and into darkness until around 0500 UTC.

It is great to see enthusiasm mounting to grab that 365/366 Endorsement. The new 365 Chat that KB3RAN set up should be a big help in coordinating. It has certainly helped him as he now needs only August 23 to complete his 366 Award level.

Re: Question - log N3FJP

Jason K3JSJ
 

Jerry,
I used the N3FJP Field Day logging application this past weekend.  Under the File Menu the Export Log file generates a Dupe file that is attached to the ARRL submission.

There is also an option on the ARRL site to attach a Calibro format.

Does your log currently have the class and section exchange on each QSO?


Re: 070 Award Checker log errors

ShawnP
 

Thanks Jerry.

I can easily pull out the PSK entries and clutter things with the other modes.  BTW, nice to work you during Field Day, I'll be looking to work you again sometime.
