Being a day late and a dollar short ( I only have 4hrs left for today) has made me re think

on how to work the Sprint Contest  If my Calculations are right I have from Now 2000 Sat

until 0000 Mon

If I want to work 160M as well as 40 and 80 then I will have to use my Sun 6hr block in

between 0000 to 0900 due to the fact that 160M is a night time band Feel free to correct

me if I'm wrong

with hamspots ( NO need to logout or login )

just bookmark the web page any time you want use it

just click on the bookmark

ON the top menu hold your mouse over Digital Modes

slide the mouse down to PSK Modes click on PSK+Chat

the LEFT windows will show who you spotted and who spotted you

the RIGHT window shows all Calls using PSK and what freq they are on

Once you get the hang of it you can use it for different Modes as well

Hope this Helps

Re: DOUBLEHEADER SPRINT = Where is everybody?!

Keep trying, Rick.  I wasn't able to be on Fri evening, but threw out a few CQs this morning about 13:00 and got some takers. I generally do a few CQs every quarter-hour to see if anyone's around within reach of current prop. I have a DM780 alarm that goes off if "070 Sprint" is decoded to make it easier for me to catch what's there when my attention is elsewhere.

I'm not sure of my schedule this (Sat.) evening, but hope to be on sometime after 0300z.

Subject: [070Club] STARTS TOMORROW - DOUBLEHEADER TRIPLE PLAY LOW BAND SPRINT !

The Ø7Ø Club DOUBLEHEADER TRIPLE PLAY LOW BAND SPRINT – Starts Tomorrow

Saturday, December 14 - 0000 UTC (Friday, December 13 - 7:00 p.m. EST * )

to Monday, December 16 - 0000 UTC (Sunday, December 15 - 7:00 p.m. EST * )



This is a 3 day event – Friday, Saturday and Sunday evenings in US.


Sprint Rules – Work a 6 hour block each UTC Date. For Scoring, your 6 hour block will start with the hour you select on the Scoring page and continue for the next 6 hours. You may have only one “Block” or “Block Portion” on a given UTC date.



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



Open to all licensed radio amateurs. Using 40M, 80M and 160M.


For Rules and details, Click Here: Sprint Rules<https://eur04.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.podxs070.com%2Fo7o-club-sponsored-contests%2Ftriple-play-low-band-sprint&data=02%7C01%7C%7C7a6a70424b5547df359508d77f0e52e0%7C84df9e7fe9f640afb435aaaaaaaaaaaa%7C1%7C0%7C637117571812805748&sdata=p8%2Bh5d1Fk7Wm%2ByhTVXf3mPBJRb0XLhBntq8eY3OWq1M%3D&reserved=0>

Frequencies: - 1.807 / 1.838 MHz (Europe). 3.580 MHz, 7.070 / 7.035 (Europe) Mhz

4 Power Categories:

QRP < 5 W
Low < 25 W
Medium < 50 W
High < 100 W

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

Call: “CQ 070 Sprint”

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



(The on-line Scorer did not perform correctly for the Triple Play in November. Results were prepared manually by Rick, N7WE. Thank you, Rick!

- Hopefully the on-line scoring will be correct for this contest.)

This event will again test your ingenuity and stealthy antenna talents. But with 3 bands to choose from, you can optimize your luck with propagation.

And it will again be worth pursuing, in order to grab that Top Band Endorsement Sticker with 20 QSOS on 160M. And 160M QSOs count as 3 points each. Only 43 of our 2,706 members have earned the Top Band Sticker.



It is helpful to post your intentions to QSY on the Reflector. Also, be sure to use PSKReporter and to Spot calls seen. We need all the help we can get.



This is one of our most popular contests. Last year, 37 logs were submitted. Matt, W5MMW, won Top Dawg honors and First Place in the 50W  category with a spectacular 90 QSOs.



Let’s see if we can beat that turnout.

At this QTH, 40m was OK the first part of the evening.  80m was tough with lots of static and QSB.  40m just completely went away about 10 PM local 0300 UTC.  Tstorm this morning but it is supposed to move on out during the day. 

Never did see any our friends in the Pacific NW.  Hopefully tonight will be much better.

Subject: [070Club] STARTS TOMORROW - DOUBLEHEADER TRIPLE PLAY LOW BAND SPRINT !

The Ø7Ø Club DOUBLEHEADER TRIPLE PLAY LOW BAND SPRINT – Starts Tomorrow

Saturday, December 14 - 0000 UTC (Friday, December 13 - 7:00 p.m. EST * )

to Monday, December 16 - 0000 UTC (Sunday, December 15 - 7:00 p.m. EST * )



This is a 3 day event – Friday, Saturday and Sunday evenings in US.


Sprint Rules – Work a 6 hour block each UTC Date. For Scoring, your 6 hour block will start with the hour you select on the Scoring page and continue for the next 6 hours. You may have only one “Block” or “Block Portion” on a given UTC date.



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



Open to all licensed radio amateurs. Using 40M, 80M and 160M.


For Rules and details, Click Here: Sprint Rules<https://eur04.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.podxs070.com%2Fo7o-club-sponsored-contests%2Ftriple-play-low-band-sprint&data=02%7C01%7C%7C7a6a70424b5547df359508d77f0e52e0%7C84df9e7fe9f640afb435aaaaaaaaaaaa%7C1%7C0%7C637117571812805748&sdata=p8%2Bh5d1Fk7Wm%2ByhTVXf3mPBJRb0XLhBntq8eY3OWq1M%3D&reserved=0>

Frequencies: - 1.807 / 1.838 MHz (Europe). 3.580 MHz, 7.070 / 7.035 (Europe) Mhz

4 Power Categories:

QRP < 5 W
Low < 25 W
Medium < 50 W
High < 100 W

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

Call: “CQ 070 Sprint”

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



(The on-line Scorer did not perform correctly for the Triple Play in November. Results were prepared manually by Rick, N7WE. Thank you, Rick!

- Hopefully the on-line scoring will be correct for this contest.)

This event will again test your ingenuity and stealthy antenna talents. But with 3 bands to choose from, you can optimize your luck with propagation.

And it will again be worth pursuing, in order to grab that Top Band Endorsement Sticker with 20 QSOS on 160M. And 160M QSOs count as 3 points each. Only 43 of our 2,706 members have earned the Top Band Sticker.



It is helpful to post your intentions to QSY on the Reflector. Also, be sure to use PSKReporter and to Spot calls seen. We need all the help we can get.



This is one of our most popular contests. Last year, 37 logs were submitted. Matt, W5MMW, won Top Dawg honors and First Place in the 50W category with a spectacular 90 QSOs.



Let’s see if we can beat that turnout.
