Rather pricey and it does not have a sound card internally. I will continue to make my own sound card interfaces.

Steve -
Saw you briefly (NR3I) while you were working W4BZM at about 14.072.850.  You were about 439 with QSB at this QTH, but definitely workable.  Then a couple of Olivia stations opened up right on top of you and completely wiped you out.  Don't know how much frequency agility you have with your setup, but you would probably get a lot less QRM from other modes if you can work PSK down between 14.070 and 14.072.  Sorry I missed you, but don't give up the ship!  You'll get NR3I to 070 membership one of these days! 73,

Steve,
I did get on 20m around 9:45 or so but couldn't find you.  I did work a station PSK31 from Louisiana.

Got the piece of SPAM as well. Kinda looks like someone raided our mailing list.

Kind of pricey at $199 and they have to special make a cable for radio. Think I'll stick with Signalink USB.

NR3I FM29er Delaware Activation April 28th

stephen shearer
 

I plan on being on the air April 28th during the day.
The weather is forecast as "almost" record breaking warm weather (86F) and a great day to be outside.

I will be testing a few portable antennas and two different methods (fldigi and KX3).
I will be running PSK-31 at 10 Watts or less. 

I hope to be on the air by 10am EDT.

Using the call NR3I working on getting 50 QSO's for the club call.
I will be located just West of Wilmington, DE  New Castle County.
I will QSL via LoTW (I can do paper with SASE). 

20M mainly  -  I will try 30m and 40m if band conditions "die" on 20m. 

I will report how I make out (or not)...

We must make special note of new member Darin, KO4EJD who has set an absolutely stratospheric trajectory for LONP and Contest accomplishments.

Daren joined us on October 9, 2020 as 070 Member #2797. In Darin’s first 6 months as a member, he has accomplished 192 Member QSO’s giving him not only the 100 Level LONP, but also the 150 Level. He is only 8 QSO’s short of the 200 Level.

What a performance! But that is just part of the story!!

The month following his joining, he finished 2nd in High Power in the Triple Play Contest. Undaunted, he continued his quest for dominance:



How’s that for a Newbie? That places him 2nd in the race for RC3 for 2021, tightly nestled between N5SLY and KC3FL.

Note that one secret to Darin’s success is his being the first member with a number >2786 that submitted his entire log to N6MG for verification of LONP credits. This shows that if members with #'s greater than 2786 submit their logs, they CAN achieve LONP even if it requires manual verification. See below for instruction on how to accomplish that.

We also have an excited pack of LONP Seekers in hot pursuit of this traditional first rights award. If you see them, give them a call and spot them on PSKReporter and our reflector:


And, also very noteworthy was completion by Dave, VE7BGD of his 366 Award. It takes significant dedication to grab that one. You are only our 57th Member (2%) to get it.

With the endorsement software not working properly, a lot of manual intervention has been required. Our Executive Director, Jim, K5SP, with assistance from David, K9DWR, and Milt, N6MG have been manually updating the LONP data.

IMPORTANT NOTICE!!

Since the endorsement checker does not properly recognize and give any LONP credit for member numbers that are greater than 2786, this task must now be completed manually by a volunteer.

If your 070 membership number is above #2786, you may still apply for LONP by submitting your entire log of member contacts per the Upload Instructions !   


Congratulations to all for your diligent pursuit of these cherished Awards!!

Many fishing boats from the islands or South America have ham radios and indiscriminately talk wherever they want.  Sometimes you can hear 5 or 6.  Luckily most of the time they do not talk much or maybe we just can't hear them.  Also it is in spanish or maybe Portugese or some other language that I don't understand.

Hi Eric,

I will be happy to share my vast knowledge, hi hi.  It is fun to do and really not to hard.  Fortunately for me Kathy, my xyl, likes to travel and plans the trips to activate different grids.  There are a lot of un-activated grids in the West, so there are plenty of opportunities.  Its nice to be on the other side of the pile-up.
