This thread has a lot of good tips here for the 24/7 endorsement.  Here's some of my experience.
1)  Here in the CONUS remember to take advantage of the time zone spread.  0800 UTC is 3 AM EST, but that is only 12 midnight on the west coast.  Likewise, 1100 UTC is 3 AM PST, but 6 AM on the east coast.  And like Mike said, the shift to DST moves things around - and AZ does something different that the rest of the country and that opens up other possibilies too.
2)  Scheds are really good and I always found several willing to stay up/get up just by posting on the reflector.  It helps to give about 36 to 48 hours notice and what your plan is for bands.  I found fewer takers on the mid-week slots.  They were my tough ones.
3)  Temporary antennas can help.  I'm HOA - restricted to a vertical which has a low (read long skip) takeoff angle.  I strung a temporary long wire to get more like a NVIS for 40/80 on occasion.  It helped with closer in stations.  It went up and down many times!
The 070 club is a really great group of people and you will find lots ready to help.  All you have to do is let us know when and where!  This is a really fun, but hard, endorsement.  Those that have done it will tell you you get a really, really great sense of accomplishment when you finish!

Re: WB8YXF completes 24/7

Fr Richard R
 

Thanks to everyone who was there when I needed a contact in order to complete the 24/7.

It was fun, tiring, and sometimes frustrating...  Yes I was blessed with a snow storm last weekend which enabled me to stay up Sunday morning...... though of course the frustration was no contacts during the 0800 hour.  And as we all know that happens in our hobby of Ham Radio.....

I stayed up many a night to get all the hours in.  My XYL is so special as she put up with me staying up or getting up to attempt to find someone on, all hours of the day and night etc.

Then there were the ones who stayed up or got up for me, like Jerry, N9AVY and Rick, N7WE, and several others.  Amazing group we have here with the 070 group, a family.

Many a night when I thought there was no one around, all of sudden someone was there..... so thank you to everyone who was there.

Yes, I will do the same, that is why we are here, to assist.

This morning was fun for my last one, up at 0800 (3am EST); the good news was Rick said he was getting up to be there, and as soon as I called CQ, he was there.  I was able to head back to bed, quickly.....  I knew Jerry was also going to be up, though I did not hear him, sri Jerry, though thanks.

Now the fun begins, working toward 365/6, which may take a few years.........
and I need Delaware..............

Again thank y'all
73 and God Bless,


Fr Richard

The strategy I used for the late hours was to plan for catnaps.  wake up, make a contact or two (preferably just before and just after the top of the hour), then take another nap.  I found that a lot easier than trying to do them while staying up in long blocks.

I second that there are people ...non-07members.. around in those wee hours.  I was quite surprised to run into an old 10-10 member on 80m that I had lost contact with for years.   They're out there, but you gotta get their attention.

Mike — When I was doing that in the wee hours, I was actually surprised of the number of people up and on the air during those hours.  Not a lot but usually 2 or 3 during the hour.  I don’t remember having to call CQ more than a couple of times.  I used both 40 and 80 meters and really did not have any problems.

With that being said, we are never sure what the bands are going to be like but more often than not I believe a contact can be made.  There was a few times when I never thought anyone would be on but seemed like there was always a signal somewhere that would pop up.  So, hang in there and just be vigilant.

ACLog tells me we are about 257 miles apart so I’m not sure how that would play out other than on 80 meters.

As we move into poorer propagation on the bands, we just have to take what we can get. Bands like 40/80m will pobably be the best producers of contacts. There's the old saying that the bands are always open to somewhere, but whether or not that's true is questionable. However, you;ll never know until you try.

When working on 24/7 times slots there were many times when there were no contacts in the 0600-1200 hours. Be persistent and keep plugging away at it ! If this were an easy endorsement there would be more working at it. Become an "owl on the branch".

I did most of mine on 40m, but that’s just what my setup is limited to. I’ve managed to squeak out a handful on 80, but the rig forces that to QRP so YMMV.

Don’t forget, when we shift back to DST, the local time will shift to the left relative to zulu time. That makes some squares easier and some harder; good to plan accordingly.

I just checked my status and see that 08:00 - 12:00 Z for each day is a blank slate..with some weird one that should be easy like 01:00 on friday and saturday and 19:00 on Tuesday..guess I'll have to systmeatically start knocking these down..we should start a net that meets at the top of each hour..sort of like time sentinels  hi hi

Same happened here.
I did not ever register the message that the scorer was fixed.
Another year older and a whole new world of things to forget.

Hey Barry, that makes two of us! 

I think that there were a couple of emails about problems with the scorer, so I postponed uploading. 

Then forgetfulness asserted itself.

Woke up early today (for a Sunday) and figured I’d try to fill my 1200z Clock square.   Managed two partial QSO’s, but could not complete the exchange.

Gave it one last try and at 12:59:13z, Joe – KA1PPV answered my CQ.  I have a couple other squares filled in the last few minutes of the hour, but really figured I’d missed out today.  Thanks, Joe!

I’ll never make 168… I think 133 will be about the limit, but I’d have never made it this far without the help of some great 070 Club members.  This really is a great organization!

Hopefully at around 1800z today I can complete the 120, then at 1300z on Wednesday I can finish my last ‘daylight’ clock square.  The rest will be nothing be gravy!

73 all,

Mike
