Re: Frustration

Over the past few months I've chatted with several operators who have expressed their opinion that FT-8 is boring and find more satisfaction in PSK. While I'm sure there are probably those who like FT-8, I eel that many hams are about "communicating" more than making contacts. Hams have always been about making friendly contacts with other hams... it's part of our heritage !

I'm being heard, but I think it's (1) propagation or (2) the station changed frequency very fast.

Tried to grab one of the newer 070 members today and for the last few days, but he seems to sign out and change frequency in one quick move. Even tried "tail-ending" which I hate to do, but it didn't work. Also tried calling him after the other station signed. That didn't work either. Ran out of options . aaaaaarrrrrggggghhhhhh ! Oh the pain of not being heard... guess it's time to put amp back in the station.

I have 2 Excel files (which need updating.)  One has the member by callsign, the other by PODSX number.  It comes in handy when looking for new numbers and I get to keep track of my current total.  I have a column for LONP's also.  I also put the number in my comments block on fldigi and qrz if I remember at the time.

I use MixW 3.2 and I couldn't get any of that stuff at hamclubs to work and that why I did my own.

Been having trouble with other software as well.

Eric:

What a did a while back was to take the 070 member list and put it it an Excel file. I then took all the LONP data from checker (mine) and manually entered the stations I worked (N9AVY, 0454 in one column) the ones I worked were highlighted in yellow. This was all in a file which I bring up on screen. When I work someone I refer to file to see if that station is in the list.

File is updated via K5SP's new member posts; so , it's pretty much current. The initial start up took a while (couple of days) but I believe it was worth it. When adding new members they are inserted at end of list and using the A--> Z icon on Excel they get inserted in proper order. The recent changes in call signs & SK was another upgrade to program.

I can ski through it when I hear a new call and pretty much find out if station has 070#. I tried to get the software listed on 070 site to work, but had zero success... probably just me, but I'd been doing something similar to this when I had on a Commadore 64 back in 80's for tracking 10-10 chapters and point upgrades.

Am sure someone will say it's a lot of work and suggest some other way, but it works for me. BTW, I think that the checker automatically inserts 070 numbers when you don't list them ???

However, if the 070# is in my Comment field, then the op gave it to me during the QSO.  Unfortunately HRD does not let me filter text strings like “070” in the Comments field.  Why, when HRD allows filtering in almost every other field, I don’t know.  It would be a huge help if I could.

Just saw your comment and I did some checking also. COMMENT and COMMENT_INTL are the valid Strings on adi files. HRD will let me add comments to the log layout field but it is not listed in the search filter as a field. Might be worth a comment into the HRD forum or open a support ticket to have that field added to the fields on the filter search of the log. I know that there are close to a 100 possible data fields in an ADIF but comments would be a reasonable one to add to the HRD software.

I would suggest downloading ADIF Master. You can import your adi file there and search any data field. I just checked one of my files and the comment field shows up and can be searched that way.

Hello All,

Since I have some time I’ve started checking my log for PODX 070 numbers and filling them in a custom field in HRD Logbook. Typically when they come up in a QSO I’ve entered them in the Comments field. Right now I am going through my log one by one - this is pretty tedious given that I have over 13,000 QSOs

Is there an automated way to do this?

TIA

FYI, yours truly and our NPARC club is featured in the Lightbulb Antenna Article in the May issue of QST Magazine. David Day N1DAY put together the Lightbulb Antenna QSO Party from last year. The article doesn't mention that we made a few PSK contacts as well. That is me tapping the coil on the picture.

Just when you think the well has run dry...

I was surprised to run across 2 new 070 numbers today ! They weren't really new ones, but were older one in 1900 and 2400 ranges. Still need to find a few of the relatively recent new numbers. It does help to keep a list that you can check against when you see someone calling CQ. Couldn't get the ones at PODXS site to work; so made one using Excel equivalent. It does help, but it's on other computer and is a pain to reach as I have to slide my chair over a few feet.

Only 16 left to go to next plateau. Do I win anything ? Nope. Just the satisfaction of knowing I did it all by by lonesome. I would encourage other members to collect 070 numbers !!!
