Man, I was sure it was in the Rules, but then when I went to confirm it, I didn't see it.

And I even thought I had copied the info directly from the Rules page when I sent the 1-week announcement.

Sorry for the false chain-rattle. There are enough real rattles, you do not need any fake rattles.

Sorry!

73,
Stan

Dave,
I see Stan's good recommendation. I try to always follow that.
However, once the operating event begins, you'll see all kinds of CQ's.
Me?

LONP Notice!

Jim K5SP
 

LONP Notice!

The endorsement checker for LONP is broken.  It will not recognize any contact with a member number greater than 2786.  The checker also is not updating the lonp data files with any new log submissions.

Manual intervention was required, and, we are proud to announce that all logs submitted after 1 July 2020 have been researcehed for LONP data, and the historical files have been updated to reflect the contacts LONP members made from 1 July 2020 to 9 Feb 2021.  If you submitted a log prior to 1 July and have NOT submitted a log since then, then please resubmit your log so that the data files can be brought up to date.  When the new software that is being developed is completed, tested, and deployed to the website, LONP operations will return to normal. 

You will notice that the Members of LONP page has been updated to include all the new members, and, the new totals for everyone.  The LONP Honor Roll has also been updated accordingly.

Plans are in the works for processing contacts greater than 2786, and because it will be manually done, the steps being put in place MUST be followed to the letter!  These specific rules will be published soon.

Re: RTTY, PSK, CW skimmer project (RCK skimmer, Windows)

 Hi Bo,
re...skimmers
Couple years back our club decided on 'one' FD logger N1MM+
Some of the ole-timers (I'll be 80 in Mar) found the learning curve steep
FD 2018 logging was a disaster
FD 2019 our 'linked' logger was a delight
Of course FD 2020 was virtual but our 'individual' loggers worked well
FD 2021 yet tbd ... but, a recent series of posts that helped me better understand skimmers

 https://groups.io/g/N1MMLoggerPlus/topic/cwskimmer_and_the_rbn/74874329?p

side note... JE3HHT's MMVARI engine works very well running under N1MM+

Tnx! 
Just trying to delay "old timers' setting in. 
I must admit I'm awfully disappointed because can't motivate any of the local folks into anything. 
I got one old fart older than me into FT8 and he beat me to DXCC FT8. 
I'm optomistic that I can do it,  once I fully understand the virtual audio cable setup. 
I've pasted the W1AW schedule up so I'll have test signals nightly.

Oops !  Forgot to add that the W9CA skimmer was on Telenet so that all members could use it if they had password.  The antenna was my  Butternut HF-9V which allowed the skimmer to monitor all bands at once.  It was a neat set up and I really miss it.

I would use skimmer frequently during the year to chase CW DX.  It was on the air for a ew years until K9WMN, it' creator, passed away. Afterwards it was disassembled and sent to W9CA for storage and reassembly. Unfortunately that never happened as W9CA moved to TN, but the skimmer may be resurrected someday. 

It was a blast while it was working !

Bo, I commend your efforts on assembling another skimmer !!!

Interested in RTTY & PSK non-contest activity I found very few spotters/skimmers for them on PSKreporter.
Wanting to learn a bit, I decided to make one! I'm 80 and still trying to learn something new every day.
I've set up a RTL-SDR, HDSDR, OmniRig, & RCKskimmer and have actually captured one RTTY station!
 
Questions:
1. Is there a way to run it using V2.1 of OmniRig that is required for the latest HDSDR? RCK skimmer appears to work OK with the V1. 1 version with the matching HDSDR.
2. Does anyone have a useful frequency chart/setup for RCK skimmer??   And any of the useful settings for the program?
3. Or just a link to the ranges to scan for PSK & RTTY?
    Is this close enough:  1838-1843 kHz, 3580-3600 kHz, 7040-7100 kHz, 10120-10150 kHz, 14080-14099 kHz, 18100-18110 kHz, 21080-21100 kHz, 24910-24930 kHz, 28080-28100 kHz.
4. I'm unable to connect to their cluster dl4rck Anyone know about it?
 
Again, the main purpose is to find Active RTTY & PSK stations FOR QSOs mostly. And learn a bit. I may add a CW skimmer, mostly to find my needed DXCCs.
I run a local copy of VE7CC on my PC with my desired filters set.  So I wonder if I can only send the CW spots to it for filtering for use.?
 
Any info, links appreciated. Any groups? 
If enough are interested I can share my collection of info on Google Drive. 
 
PS. I've temporarily replaced the RTL-SDR with my RSP 2pro. to eliminate some stumbling parts.

Bo - I've never used a skimmer, so no help on that front.  I have added some notes in Red on your frequency list below.

What is the best way to designate a YL when we upload log?  Should we use Call/YL or list them in the soap box?
If you mean, "how do I mark what I am?," that's a radio button on the upload form.

If you mean, "Where do I put YL for an individual QSO?," the scorer will pick
that up in the following fields, in descending order:

app_n1mm_misctext
srx_string
srx
comment
notes
name
other
award

The most common I've seen are srx_string and comment, but any will work (yes, I've seen some weird locations).
