Milt,

I am in total agreement with you. Well said! And if one uses a well written logging program such as N3FJP’s AC Log, uploading to LoTW is extremely easy, and can even done automatically.

Yeah, it was a good time, that’s for sure. Much to my astonishment I managed to log 36 contacts! Hopefully there will be a lot more activity on PSK-31 from here on out!

It's the last week of the year. I know of a plethora of big name Amateurs and contester's that accrue hundreds and even thousands of QSO's a year. 
Many upload to LotW  just once a year.
Why do they wait? Because they're really not chasing any awards. 
The system gets overloaded.
May I suggest that you upload your logs before the rush? 
That's all.

Re: Worked a new-to-me 070 number

Mike has stated that I was his only PSK contact this year. Whether or not he gets back on PSK I won't give odds on that.  He hasn't been on PSK for many years, but prefers CW, SSTV and RTTY.  Sorry to be bearer of sad news.

This morning I finally work my old friend Mike , KA9DFI, on PSK31 (and RTTY) on 40m.  He hasn't been on for years due to computer and/or rig problems. He vey difficult to work because there is about 25 miles between us as well as the Marengo Ridge which is somewhat difficult for RF to get over at times. Plus he's  on a vertical and I'm horizontal.

Anyhow, had a great time working #0437 !  Thanks Mike !

BTW, Mike & I have been friends for over 30 years.  He got his Extra when I was still messing around as a Tech. Smart fellow who holds 2 Doctorates and is working on a 3rd...

Re: Murphy Strikes Again !

Aaaaaaarrrrrgggggghhhh !     Dang Murphy !  

This last couple weeks he got my brand new IC-7300 DOA out of box, my safe lost it combo with Xmas cash locked inside, and finally the remote coax switch went belly up.  Oh, and the little Chinese heater which keeps my (coldest in the house) room toasty also went belly up.  

Beginning to get a strong dislike for Murphy !

Everything was working normal yesterday and then today all 3 antennas have SWR so high the autotuner on FT-1000MP shuts down .  Only weather change was a dusting of snow this morning and a temp. around 17 F.  Rotor turns sluggishly, but it does turn.  Went out and visually checked antennas, but didn't see anything. Hmmm ....   Hope it's just the cold weather. 

Only one coax runs out to an Ameritron 5 position switch at base of tower and coax switch selects proper antennas.  Only thing I can remember happening was a few years ago one of the relay armatures became disconnected when a spring broke.  Usually get out there once a year to burnish relay contacts.

I'm perplexed ...

Merry Christmas to All !

Re: Christmas Run 2020 - "Operating Event"

Best time I’ve had with PSK-31 in years! Lots of you good folks on the air, and condx not too bad.

Hopefully this will mark the return of many operators to the mode, especially as the sunspot numbers get better!

PSKfest – Heads Up ! One week away

stan W9SMR
 

The Ø7Ø Club PSKfest is just 1 week away -


  0000 UTC Saturday, 2 January 2021
 to
 2359 UTC Saturday, 2 January 2021

 

This is a 1 day, 24 hour event – Friday evening and Saturday in US.

Sprint Rules – work as many stations as possible in the allotted time using PSK31 mode.

 

Work each station once per band. (Same station, same band, is a dupe!)

 

Open to all licensed radio amateurs. Using 80M thru 10M (No WARC Bands)

For Rules and detailsClick Here: PSKFest Rules

 

4 Power Categories:

QRP < 5 W
Low < 25 W
Medium < 50 W
High < 100 W (See Rules)


Exchange:
 Callsign,  RST  and  State/Province/Country (SPC)  eg: “W9SMR  599  FL”


Call: “CQ PSKFEST”


All entry logs
 must be received within 1 week after the event ends.

 

The PSKFest Uploader link will be activated for the Contest. See Rules.

 

With propagation possibly improving and 5 bands to choose from, you can optimize your luck. It is helpful to post your intentions to QSY on the Reflector. Also, be sure to use PSKReporter and to Spot calls seen. Under current propagation conditions, we need all the help we can get.

 

Last year there were 90 logs submitted – a very good turnout. Last year’s Top Dawg and 1st in High Power was Bob, KF3AA with 36 states and 21 DXCC multipliers. Four of our members worked 38 States. We had a record 16 non-members competing and submitting logs. Several have since joined the 070.

Be sure to tell any and all to join the fun, submit their logs and join us as soon as possible.

Let’s see if we can find those open bands.

Whew !   20m was a real bear today .  Signal would come & go ... mostly go because I missed a bunch of station.  The real challenge was KE0CEN/7 who said he was in Iowa which is a tough shot from Northern Illinois because it's close in.  Lost quite a few station who called me, but got enough for 25.

Milt , N6MG, won the Special Prize for California today !
