No 13 Colonies for me this year. I have family in from out of town so no time to play.

Great Jerry.  Just got everything ready for the sprint and the next round of TStorms has started, so maybe after supper???

Can't I just do the whole 24 hours to 'the best of my ability' then select the best 6 hour period for submitting?

Re: Contest logging

David Alvarez
 

Thanks for the tip. I hope I downloaded the correct contest is it “CQ WW DX Contest Log 5.8? If so when I tried it a message came up that the mode set in the logger is CW and the rig was digital and to change it. I am having fldigi control the rig. Did you find a work around?

Tnx

For almost every contest I have to go thru all the N3FJP loggers to find one that fits.
I found the Worldwide DX logger will work for both this contest and the DL RTTY contest which uses S/N instead of state.
"Generic contest" is selected in fldigi, and the logger should be started BEFORE starting fldigi.

Art -

Good suggestions. Because of the "close-in" phenomenon, I hope to be on the air earlier than when the band "goes long", just to catch some nearby LONP points. 

I'll do my best to stay up late to get the west coast.

Hi Dave and others,
We are at the bottom of the the Solar Cycle. Solar Flux will be 68 and geomagnetic activity light.
As soon as the sun goes down, 40 Meters will quickly stretch out.
If you want to work anyone close, it will be during the daytime.

Out here in Oregon where there is little activity and a hill and mountain to my east, I will fire up at 00 or 01 UTC (5 or 6 pm local PDT).
That way I can catch a few on the west coast and then pray I can get a few of you out East to 06-07 UTC.
40 Meters was excellent during Field Day.
Good luck.

Dave welcome to the club.  Yes pick a start time and it will be a continuous 6 hour time window.  Your six hours must be between 20;00 UTC Saturday July 4 until 20:00 Sunday July 5.  Exchange is Callsign, signal report and state/province/country (SPC).  Your CQ should be CQ 40M Sprint.  The link to the rules is on the PODXS home page.

Your time should be when 40 meters is open for you and your possible contacts.  Look at last years results at  http://hamclubs.info/scorer/   .  I think that is the right site.

Field Day Log uploaded

I uploaded my log for Field Day and credited my 382 points to PODXS 070. Only 16 of my 83 QSOs were PSK31, but I wanted to make sure that our club name made a good showing with ARRL, so I chose PODXS 070 over my other club affiliations to get the credit . . . J
