Thanks Eric-

Looks like no joy from Florida today.  Maybe Christobal is getting in the way.

Rick,

A couple of days ago 6m really opened up wide for a few days.  Last two days have been pretty dead here on the West Coast.

Keeping an eye out anyway….

Re: Ham Club Membership List

Thanks.  I figured someone else created the list.  Just didn't know how it worked.

Bob - That is an issue with the hamclubs.info site.  It is maintained by someone else and they do not keep it updated any longer.  I believe it updates itself somehow, however, those errors are not being fixed.  I have to go into the file and delete those as well every time I download the data file.  Kind of a pain but better than not having it at all I guess.

This had been brought up before, and the fix is just exactly what you did.

The files are generated by scripts on hamclubs.info over which we have no control, and the site owner will not take action to fix them.

Emails

Jerry N9AVY
 

One thing we should all be aware of is that in emails it is pretty near impossible to express emotions as we write. We should all take emails with a grain of salt because it's often hard to tell if someone is being funny, sarcastic or simply asking a question. Emails tend to be short and to the point.

WE should all be friends and equals here...

Good to snag a JA with a great signal here into KY @ 12:00 GMT
I  was just thinking that a few years back I use to love to work special event stn's on  PSK.
Its a shame very very few are using PSK.
I got tired of FT8 and came back to PSK. Love it.
Just a thought.

Endorsement Daze #3 – LONP and TRI-WARC – Saturday, June 20

stan W9SMR
 

This is our 3rd Endorsement Daze Event. IT IS NOT A CONTEST. This activity is intended to promote more on-air time among members and provide targeted opportunities to achieve specific PODXS Endorsements.

This 3rd Endorsement Daze activity will target LONP and TRI-WARC

First Objective - LONP - If you are a new member, this is your Golden Opportunity!  You can start accumulating toward that 100 member contacts required for LONP Membership - Currently, only 431 of our 2,771 members have qualified.

 

We know that this Event helps. As reported a year ago, while participating in Daze #1, newcomer, Mike W4BZM (PODXS # 2653), managed to raise his LONP count from 11 to 20. A year later, prior to the Three Day Weekend Contest (TDW), he had 96 members logged. After the contest he had 104 members logged.  Mission successful.

 

Second objective – TRI-WARC
To stimulate PSK31 on the WARC bands, the 070 Club offers the "TRI-WARC" pennant. Work three different stations on each of the WARC bands (30M, 17M and 12M) for a total of 9 contacts. 

 

Given the requirement for 9 QSOs and 3 different bands, this is probably one of the most difficult Endorsements. But recent experience during the TDW showed that making a call on 10M and 15M, even 6M can result in a QSO. You may not make it all the way, but hopefully you can start the path.

 

Suggested frequencies for the WARC bands:

30M: 10.140 MHz,

17M: 18.097 MHz,

12M: 24.920 MHz

 

Art, K7DWI (#2518) has seriously studied the summer propagation and believes that starting now you can expect Es conditions almost every day from 9 am to 2 pm, and again from 5 pm to 8 pm your local Daylight Saving Time.

You just need to get on and make the call! It’s time to test the propagation!

 

Our Endorsement Daze #3 event is planned for 18 hours in hopes of focusing our time. There is nothing critical about this timing. Get on when you can and the conditions are favorable and enjoy the event.

 

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 27 at 23:59 EDT)

 

Join the fun and enjoy…Call: CQ CQ 070 Daze de (Ur Call)

 

Upload your complete log promptly to the Online Endorsement Checker

 

 Your LONP total will be displayed under the 070-LONP tab. Your TRI-WARC progress will be shown in the “Completed” or “In Progress” or “Not Started” column on your “070 Award Progress” page. Click on the “Target” column to see what you need to finish the award.

 

As you see activity on the waterfall, be sure to “SPOT” those calls and your own to PSKReporter and on the Reflector. Pick your operating times and Bands to optimize short, medium and long distance contacts.

 

It’s OK to QSO with non-members, too. Just show them how much fun the

070 PODXS Club can be and welcome them to join us.

 

After you enjoy the Daze #3, please send me your comments and suggestions to improve this Event.
