I had a lot of fun with this one.  I finally figured out the rules and didn't make any dupes. There should be an endorsement for figuring out the rules. hi hi    I got 4 needed contacts on 160 and got my Top Band endorsement and three new LONP.  Looking forward to the next contest.

I list my PODXS number in one of my macros and had a station K1KL ask me today about PODXS  because he was just returning to psk after a few years and saw all of the stations last night calling CQ PODXS sprint.  He seemed really interested and  said he was going to look at the website  Think I got him hooked and hope to see him on the roster soon.

Doubleheader Sprint - Contest Scoring Issue

stan W9SMR
 

Unfortunately, our on-line scoring system is again not working properly. Efforts are underway to handle this by manually scoring it similar to what Rick, N7WE, did for us in the Triple Play Contest last month.

 

Please upload your contest logs as you normally would. We will advise when we have the Scores properly calculated.

 

Note also, upload your log before the December 23 final day.

 

Thanks for your patience!!!

This was fun! I had a chance to get on 80m for an hour or two, but then the neighbor's lights generated a raspy sound that looks a lot like a PSK signal.

The online scorer called my log a check log, with zero points. Not sure what the error is, but it's all in red.

By my scoring though, it was 11 QSOs, 22 QSO points, 10 mults, so 220 points?

Nice to meet you guys!  73,

Double Header Soap Box

Rick - N7WE
 

Well the last 070 Contest of the decade is in the log and for me it was a good one.  More action than I had in last months Triple Play.  Managed 6 new LONPs and one new grid (outside the contest window - but still an new grid!).  Special thanks to all our newer members who got on and played.  Contests are one of the best ways to build LONP totals. 

Day One was mostly 40m at this QTH as we had lots of static on 80.  The T-storm move through overnight (tornado one county over) and then things cleared weather wise.  Day Two was a mix of both 40 and 80 with a surprising number of calls that I had not seen on Day One.  Then last night was kind of cleanup - mostly on 80 for calls I had not worked there.  Did discover that a neighbor had put up some Christmas lights that made some low level QRM on 80, but not enought to block me out.  Hope you all enjoyed as much as I did. 

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all and may the propagation improve in 2020!

Re: DOUBLEHEADER SPRINT = Where is everybody?!

John Hendry KG5OIB
 

I got on for a couple of hours Friday night, and worked a few (very few) contacts.   Couldn't get on at all on Saturday, and now working 40m now.   Made 1 contact so far.  

Unfortunately, I have no way to put out an 80 meter or 160 meter antenna, so I'm stuck on 40.   
But at least I'm finally able to participate in a contest.

Double Header Side Benefit!

Rick - N7WE
 

Last night while I was waiting for the second day window to open for the Triple Play Double Header, I opened PSK Reporter to have a look at what was going on on 40m.  To my surprise, it showed a N1 operating from DN60, which is a grid I've been looking for for quite some time.  Always leery of calls that show up wildly outside their ARRL call zone without a /M or /P, I plugged the call into QRZ and sure enough...Vermont location.  Oh well, not unusual.  But on an off chance, I went ahead and answered his CQ.  Turns out he was in Steamboat Springs, Colorado which IS in DN60 and he gave me a report with both QTH and Locator!    Now in the log and in the bank!  It won't count towards Double Header points as it was outside my window, but I almost blew it off and didn't answer his CQ.

Last night's Double Header was kind of slow for me.  80m was much better with lots less static, but on 40m I couldn't see many new ones.  And although others reported luck on 160m, I didn't put up a 160 antenna for this go-round.  Just too old and too tired, even though I wouldn't have had to trudge through snow to do it!  Hi hi. Hopefully tonight a whole bunch who haven't been able to get on yet will get some free time in all the Christmas rush and be able to join in!  Lots of fun for all.  Hope to see you on the waterfall tonight!  REMEMBER - this is the last PSK31 contest of the decade!
