OK - Time to recruit some help for that endorsement you are working on!  Post here what endorsements you are working on.  Genereate some help!  070 members are a great bunch and jump right in to help each other complete those endorsements and get stickers in the envelope for the next mailing.

Special note relatively new members - upload your logs to the Awards Progress Checker frequently!  No need to wait until you complete an endorsement. Keeping track of your progress is MOTIVATIONAL!

Decided to try something different this time.  Cranked the power setting down to 5w, hooked up the wattmeter to make sure was really only 5w,  and was pleasantly surprised at the contacts I could make.  Mostly had to work search and pounce and time my responses to CQs.  Only picked up a few by calling CQ.  Thanks to all those who hung in there and worked me.  Saw lots of AGN AGN PLS, but only a few SORRY NO COPY.  But I didn't even respond to calls from Milt in CA, Barry in BC, or Wes in UT.  Saw them, but knew 5w wouldn't do it.  There were some I could work on 40 but not 80 and vice versa - interesting!

All in all a fun contest. Learned some new things.  I may go QRP again.

Thanks all.  I used "log checker" and added a state column.  I was able to copy the section column into state and that worked just fine.

Rick,
I had a similar problem. I solved it by going back to my log and adding OM or YL and the other Op's name in the "comments" field. Then I re-uploaded the corrected log to checker. Wa la, problem gone.

Can someone help me correct my Valentine's Day Sprint log entry?  I'm a first time nubi at it and I ended up with a score of 0 with 11 contacts....  I really have given it my best shot and need a little help.  

I'd be glad to put my cell phone out to anyone who can spend a couple minutes to help me.

Rick :

Looks like you didn't have any multipliers and that could be he problem.  Each different state/province/DX country is a multiplier.  You can only use same multiplier once per band.

Go back and edit you log . Put the exchange in the the right place - I use N3FJPs software and I would put "n9avy IL OM" in SRX column.  If you have that it should wok.

Good luck !

Egad!  Flaming traps!  I discovered this late in the operating session, so only worked a couple times with the 80M beam tuned.  My Hustler 6BTV vertical is well tuned for 80M PSK, so I have always used that with some success.  I theorized in the moment that the "tunability" of the beam on 80M might be due to the long 40M add-on aluminum on my setup, but I have no need to push my luck, heh.  No need here for flaming traps. Thanks for the heads-up, Jerry.

As to YLs, Mary KC4TIE was my only YL contact as well.  That's why I was keeping an eye out for Paula's callsign!

Probably wouldn't recommend driving the TA-53 on 80m with a 100 watts or a KW.  You might experience what a friend here in Marengo had with his TA-33 - flaming traps
The only YL I saw was Mary.  If there were others I missed them.  Maybe some of you guys will have to put wigs in 2019 !

I got on earlier than usual and 40M was in better shape than I expected, making first contact with John KE4JB in NY.  After that a couple more NY contacts and Bill N4GBK in NC were in the log with others before I switched to 80M. 80 was active as well, with cross-country contacts coming in again from NY and NC, KY, PA, and WV among others.  I looked for Paula K7PAX when she emailed, but we are too close I guess.  I did manage to get Barry VA7GEM on 80M for the first time in a while.  I was amused to find out that my Mosley TA53M beam with 40M add-on would tune to a 1.3 SWR on 80M.  Huh, how about that. I don't think that I had even thought to try that before.  You learn something new each time you participate in an event and that's all part of the fun.  I hope others enjoyed it as well!

Another fun sprint completed.  Some comments from this QTH.

Need to notify XYL well in advance of participation plans.  Time was a factor in my operation, only had a couple of hours or so due to family committments.  (And, could not attempt to defer them, because they were plans of "she who must be obeyed". 

Cannot ever seem to get a contact with N5SLY who is only about 30 miles from me, you would think we could work groundwave on 80 and 40. Saw others working him, but never saw him at all. 

The short period of time I had on 80 was great.  Band was not noisy here, and could have worked later than I did on this band.  Forty was never that great, had some good contacts, but the band was up and down here.  Could not get my wire to properly load on 160.  Tried early in the day and it got down to 1.9 SWR, but could not get that low when tried to use it.    Was glad to see Barry, and Milt on the bands, but never did see Paula.  Also was great to work our two newest members AC0A, and K3IRV (told Irv that if I approved his application yesterday, he had to work me last evening)!

These sprints should show everyone that the bands are not DEAD! If as many members get on the air as there were last night, then operations would be capable.  Its not the bands, not the propagation, its the lack of operating.
