Re: QSYing to 30m

K8TOM
 

I've been calling on 30M for a while, but no takers so far.

I saw KE0JBT earlier, but no reply received to my return.

I will probably move to 17M and 20M in a half hour.  The sun rises very early this time of year in these parts. Visible light period here today is 17H 23M.  My corn likes that.

And very few lightning storms.  They are rare enough that we tell our kids about them, HI HI.

Here's hoping for a good radio day for all.

Re: Storms

Jim K5SP
 

I recall, when I was living in San Diego area, it rarely had lightning also.  (I was WB6EWH back then).

Here in north Texas, we experience these severe storms quite frequently during the Spring/early summer months.  The warm moist air coming up from the gulf meets the cooler air coming from the north and violent storms are created, many times spawning tornado activity.   Several years ago, one came through causing all windows on west side of house to be broken out, over 10K damage to 2 vehicles, new roof, antenna's replaced. Overall over 20K damage. 

When these form up, it's time to unplug all gear, disconnect antennas, and save the rigs.

QSYing to 30m

Rick - N7WE
 

QSY to 30m at 1230 UTC.  Will call standard CQ - not 070 Daze - as I don't want anyone to think I'm contesting on 30m.  Hope to work you and maybe add to your Tri-band Endorsement!

Re: Fldigi & Aclog

Tim:

First thing check your SWR and make sure they're as close to 1.5:1 as possible. If not use a tuner to knock down SWR. Also get some of those snap on chokes and put them on keyboard, mouse and other input devices to computer from radio. Had to do this here and it made a difference; just keyboard & mouse worked for me.

Hope you equipment is grounded, too.

Good luck !

Endorsement Daze #3 – WARC Helpful Hints

stan W9SMR
 

Some of us have not really gotten serious about the WARC Bands. The 070 Club TRI-WARC Endorsement and Endorsement Daze #3 offer a great time to explore. I have found a great aid for 17M propagation conditions in the Bulletins and Code Practice schedules for W1AW.

Their powerful signal acts like a Mega-Beacon for propagation on 17M. Get the full operating schedule at: W1AW - Operating Schedule

In summary, here is the schedule that I think will be most helpful. There are also voice bulletins which I have not included.

CW Bulletins or Code Practice on 18.0975 MHz starting at UTC:

13:00
20:00
21:00
23:00
00:00
02:00
03:00

Digital Bulletins PSK-31, MFSK16 and 45.45 Baudot on 18.1025 MHz starting at UTC

22:00
01:00

So, if in doubt on possible propagation prospects on 17M, just tune to the W1AW operating frequencies and see what’s cookin’ !!

Then Spot that info on the Main 070 Reflector and do a self-spot on PSKReporter. Then Spot any stations you copy and hopefully work.

Use this same Spotting technique on all the bands you operate on.

Our Endorsement Daze #3 event is planned for 18 hours in hopes of focusing our time.

Starting: 10:00 UTC on Saturday, June 20 (Saturday, June 20 at 06:00 EDT)
Ending:  03:59 UTC on Sunday, June 21 (Saturday, June 20 at 23:59 EDT)

Best wishes on a great experience with PSK-31 and the PODXS 070 Endorsement Daze #3!!
