Jerry-
Sorry to hear about the FT-1000MP.  I'm unable to make that error.  Not because I'm good....but because I have only one measly vertical!  Hope you have a backup rig on the shelf.  Would sure miss you if you were off air while it goes to the Yaesu Doctor.

Jeff:

Doesn't look like it... of the 9 bands on radio only the 40m position seems bad.  The sensitivity is down on receive (almost like there's zero noise level), but transmit is okay.  Lots like Yaesu Doctor time.

Don't thing I'll get rid of FT-1000MP, just for a couple of freak things, but I'd be interested in knowing if anyone else has had a similar problems with an FT-1000.

BTW, when his happens I can usually narrow bandwidth down to 500 or 250 Hz. , but then I can't watch the entire band.

Re: Oops !

Stephen Melachrinos
 

Sorry to hear that, Jerry. I almost had something similar. 

I finally got my 80m "low inverted-vee sloper" put back together on Friday afternoon. It had been displaced when we had some siding work done on the house early in January. (That's why I wasn't on bands lower than 40m in PSKfest.) So I got it put back together just in time on Friday, and proceeded to testing. And it wouldn't load up on 80 or 30 (3rd harmonic). I got it to work on 12m (7th harmonic), but that was about it. Then I noticed that I couldn't get the 20m dipole to load up either, and I hadn't touched it. (Of course, I hadn't touched anything since PSKfest.)

It took me about ten minutes of frustration and troubleshooting to realize that I had forgotten the labeling--the 20m antenna is "antenna 1" and the 80m is "antenna 2". So I did prove they weren't interchangeable. At least I did that with low power and didn't damage the TS2000.

Re: St. Patty’s Day Contest

Had a fun time.  Was in and out several times as other priorities had to be handled.  And sometimes when I was in the bands weren't!  Probably when I was out the bands were in...but I'll never know.  That's life these days.  I was particularly pleased to see and be able to work several of our newer members.  Thank you and welcome to the good times for all!

Next year with "all comers" format it should be a lot easier to pick up "Erin Go Bragh."  I ended up short an N and a B.  Didn't pick up any new grids, but managed to push the LONP total to 550!  That's a good contest in my book.

I'll check on that.  I was on DXSHELL not sure if that's the official one.  I finally got my log right, only 5 bad ones, not shabby.  I got GO BRAGH,  WOOT.  now for a pint of Guinness

Contest wrap up

Jerry N9AVY
 

I had fun in contest even though bands were crummy. Started out on 20m, went to 40m and then 80m to wrap it up for the night around midnight (local). Started of on 40/80 m this AM and jumped back and forth between bands. Was very frustrated with all the racket on 20m (FT-8 and a few other modes).  Took a nap this afternoon while listening to 40m and when I woke up 40m was deader than a door nail ... never seen it look like that ...hope nothing died.

Picked up a few in last hours.  Was disappointed that I didn't find very many new 070 members as only need about 8 more unique calls/070#  to finish next level of LONP.  However, can't really blame the new members for avbaoiding the terrible conditions. 

Can't wait until we open up our contests to everyone.

Thanks to all for the great contacts and to those who (AJ3DI) stuck with me until we got info exchanged.

73, Jerry  n9avy

Sherri :

You'll et the hang of contests in time.  Getting logs right has always been a problem for me and I usually end up with a few numbers that don't match or got omitted because I was falling asleep, hi !  Chalk it all up to experience.  The idea of contests is to make you a better operator, able to copy what you hear/see quickly and accurately.

Mat & Paula gave you some starting points and you should be able to take it from there. If you have quesions please ask the list, they're only too glad to help.  It's not like there was money riding on the contest ... or was there ?

Thanks, Paula! I will look tomorrow with fresh eyes. I suspect the primary problem lies with me not knowing how the fields in the fldigi log map to an adif file. I really just don't know / can't decide what to use for a logging app so I'm using native logging for now. 🤷

Thanks!

Sherri, if there are errors, they should show up in red further down the page when you look at your results. If you upload again, and check the checkbox to allow all to see your score, we could take a look at the errors and offer some suggestions on how to fix it. If you look at the scorer page, you will see that some callsigns are hyperlinks. If you click them, you can see their results. Take a look at mine – and you will see two errors. Hope this helps!

This was a lot of fun. I got 18 QSOs which is more than any other contest so far. Now, I gotta figure out what on Earth happened with my adif file. The scorer awarded me no points. Hmm

Sherri - I looked at your log submission for the contest.

Looks like you don't have the 070 #'s for each QSO saved in either the SRX field or the comment field, and the DXCC field is blank as well.

Take a look at those things and go from there.

Let me know if I can help you, please.
