Think we really need to help our West Coast members by scheduling QSOs for a certain time & frequency. This is what PODXS should be all about, contests are for fun !

Re: Serious question

Jerry N9AVY
 

Milt:

Understand what you're saying and I agree.  Have had 2 stations in FL call me at same time and one knocked the other out. Very familiar with one-way propagation and the "magic" circle where someone can be not heard at certain distances. On 10 meters years ago I was surprised pleasantly when traveled to MN (about 350 miles) and heard stations I could never hear before ! That was 10 meters, but it may be different on other bands. Propagation is sometimes weird.

Someone stated a while ago that everyone should stay in middle of (PSK) band and I think that may have caused problems with many stations being crowded into a small portion. When I call "CQ" I always seem to have better luck when I go up to 14.072 or higher... sometimes even down below 14.070. Made a lot of Q's that way.

Many thanks for Dec. 25 QSO !!!


73,   Jerry

Jerry, that's too easy to answer. 
They simply don't spread out because they don't see each other.
How many times do you only copy 1/2 of a qso?
How many times do you call cq, only to have a station on that frequency, or very close start xmitting because they were already in a qso that you had no copy on?
It's a very narrow band width signal, and if they're not interfering with each other, does it matter?

Often copy signals all bunched together like a DX pileup.  Never understand why ops don't spread out a bit....

Dave did finish 3rd Medium Power, but in the TRIPLE PLAY in November.

This is the DOUBLEHEADER.

I thought I came in 3rd place in Medium Power. The QTH is correct but the name and callsign aren't mine. Not surprised that a typo crept in with all of the hand work done on these contests.

Re: Serious question

 

Jerry, that's too easy to answer. 
They simply don't spread out because they don't see each other.
How many times do you only copy 1/2 of a qso?
How many times do you call cq, only to have a station on that frequency, or very close start xmitting because they were already in a qso that you had no copy on?
It's a very narrow band width signal, and if they're not interfering with each other, does it matter?

Often copy signals all bunched together like a DX pileup.  Never understand why ops don't spread out a bit....

Dave,
In the text of my announcement, I should have shown Fred, KK4HEG's QTH as Crouse, NC. Sorry for the confusion I caused.

The total results sheet will be uploaded soon, but unless there was an error in your log submittal, you finished with 4 QSOs on 40M and 20 points.

I will ask David, K9DWR to review your log.

Sorry for my QTH editing error.

73,
Stan

RESULTS – DOUBLEHEADER LOW BAND SPRINT – 2020
The excitement was high for this race because the winner of the Annual RC3 rested on who would win this contest. Neck and neck were leader John, KC3FL, and Lee, N5SLY, separated by only 5.91 points out of 900+ points. Not to spoil the surprise, but it looks to me like John will be our new RC3 2020 Award winner.

This year there were 49 logs submitted – up from last year’s 45 logs. There were 16 High Power, 16 Medium Power, 13 Low Power and four QRP logs submitted. There were a total of 1917 logged QSO’s; 1257 on 40M, 612 on 80M and 48 on 160M.

Top Dawg and 1st in High Power was John, KC3FL of Inverness, FL, with a record breaking 110 QSOs (7 on 160M) and 5476 points. Another stellar showing from John who seemed to be all over the bands.

High Power - Second Place was major player Lee, N5SLY, of Sherman, TX with 4340 points. Did the lack of a 160M antenna at Lee’s QTH make the difference? Third place was new member Darin, KO4EJD with 4320 points. Darin finished in 2nd place, High Power in the Triple Play.

Medium Power – First place was Stan, W9SMR of Sarasota, FL, with 2990 points. It’s amazing what one can do with a jury-rigged Inv-L strung through the neighbors’ palm trees.

Medium Power – Second place was new member Terry, KZ4KX of Austin, KY with 2737 points. Terry made a grand appearance in his first 070 contest as a member. Third Place went to Fred, KK4HEG, of Lusby, MD, with 2575 points.

Low Power – First place was Steve, W3HF, Collegeville, PA with 4140 points. Steve really kicked up a storm, nearly beating the High Power boys.

Low Power - Second Place went to new member Jeff, AC1JR with 1836 points. Jeff finished 1st Low Power in the Triple Play. Third Place went to Don, KM4UDX of Vienna, VA with 1680 points.

QRP Power – First Place went to WS8G of Beavercreek, OH with 63 QSOs and 2184 points. That’s a great achievement on these low bands these days.

QRP Power – Second Place went to Rick, N7WE of Leesburg, FL with 41 QSO’s and 1173 points. Third Place went to Steve, VA3FLF of Fort Erie, ON with 26 QSOs and 392 points.

John,
I'm glad you joined the conversation because, like Jerry, I tend to disregard the IMD/s:n reports as mostly meaningless.  As I mentioned before, DM780 will generate a -30db IMD and a +32db s/n on dead air.  By your criteria below, that should be a good signal.
My understanding is that an accurate IMD/s:n measurement needs to be on "empty rails" or when no text is shifting the phase.  I'm pretty sure that the software is not being that discriminating when it snags the numbers.  I'm also pretty sure that the ops handing them out aren't painstakingly writing them down and sending them manually when they see empty rails and might be getting an accurate reading.
As you know, I rely on my KK7UQ to let me know what my IMD is.  From that perspective, FT-8's automated reports are much more meaningful.  They tell me how loud my signal is in another operator's waterfall relative to all the other signals they might be receiving.  The quality of my signal is already known to me via my own feedback from the IMD meter calibrated on PSK-31

One of my favorite subjects.  An RSQ is an arbitrary number that the op makes up.  Some give a meaningful RSQ but most give the 599.  S/N and IMD are real numbers that your software generates and tells all about the signal.  The IMD without the S/N is useless because if the S/N is 15 dB and the IMD is -15 dB, that is a great  signal, however if the S/N were 30 dB and the IMD was -15 dB, that is being over driven and probably is 2 or 3 hundred Hz wide.  The closer the IMD is to the negative value of the S/N, the cleaner the signal because all the harmonics are suppressed.  Unfortunately the software has a tough time getting the IMD right as you can tell as the IMD figure usually jumps around.
