Sporadic times depends on what’s happening on other bands.

Jerry, what time do you normally try 15 and 10?   I'd like to try to work you on those frequencies too.

Well, I would say I had some success today.   Worked two contacts from my North Texas qth.  I worked John KC3FL in Florida, and worked a station in Central Oregon!    Did anyone else have any success today?

I know most of us (points finger at myself) stick to 20 and 40, but I would certainly like to work the other bands, especially if I know someone else might be there too.

Dick -
Let me add my thanks to you and Kathy for this trip and all the grids you activated.  It is a wonderful contribution to all 070 members.  I thought that this trip was actually better propagation (at least into central Florida) than some of the others.  You gave a lot of us grids we would never have gotten otherwise.  So THANK YOU so very much to both of you.  You guys have been the highlight of this Fall.  PSK Travelers rule!

Dick & Kathy:

 

Many thanks for all the new grids this trip !!!    It was fun working you from your trip. Hope y’all had a lot of fun and saw the sights.

 

Was hoping you’d make EL59, but won’t lose any sleep over it.   I’ll get it when time is right. 

 

Safe travels back to FL.

Started out from Lake Charles, LA heading for Cameron Prairie NWR, which is just in side the grid.  GPS took us about 4.5 miles out of the way so we arrived at the grid later than we thought.  Started call CQ after a short visit at the visitor center and managed to work Barry, VA7GEM just as we pulled into the wildlife drive and started our bird watching. Barry was good copy to begin with, then faded out and then came back strong.  So many birds we went QRT for the rest of the trip around the refuge.  When we exited, I gave Jerry, N9AVY a call and saw him on the waterfall, weak, but got enough for a QSO.  Happy to give a new grid to fellow 070 members.  

The bad news, is due to a time constraint we will not be able to activate EL59 this trip.  We go thru LA usually once a year so maybe next time.  We are on our last day of our 30 day trip and would like to say thanks to all 070 members that we contacted during this trip.  It is nice to reach out and visit with friends. Kathy,  my xyl and pilot, sends her regards also.  She has gotten into the grid chase and has the software on her computer, so when she does our trip planing she can see what grids we will be going thru.

Dick and Kathy,

We all appreciate very much your efforts to share these travel adventures with the 070 family. I have personally benefited and so have many others.

You exemplify the true spirit of this marvelous club.

THANK YOU!!

I like the idea of 18.097.   I was monitoring 18.095 for a while today, and it was clear.    Lets plan on 18.097!!!!

Wow !!!    Finally got Dick.  He called me and I went back to him.  20m seems deader than a doornail !   Was sure I was going to get skunked on this grid, but I was wrong .

 

Thank you, Dick !

070 Club Recommended PSK31 Frequencies


The introduction of FT8 digital mode, particularly in the 17m band, has made it necessary to reevaluate our recommended frequencies for 070 Club PSK31 activities. Here are our recommendations as of March 30, 2019.


160m 1.807 MHz

80m 3.580 MHz

40m 7.070 MHz

30m 10.140 MHz

20m 14.070 MHz

17m 18.097 MHz

15m 21.070 MHz

12m 24.920 MHz

10m 28.120 MHz

6m 50.290 MHz

Please note: Operating frequencies and emission type are controlled by both the ITU and the regulatory agencies of the Country of operation. Permitted frequencies for PSK31 mode may vary from those listed above. Always make sure your operation conforms to the regulations for the location from which you are operating!

FT-4's introduction is just going to exacerbate things, I'm afraid. It may be that we have to co-exist among them for now, as there's just not much room on 30m. bandplans.com<https://nam05.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.bandplans.com%2Findex.php%3Fband%3D30&data=02%7C01%7C%7C243b261dadf14dc0039d08d6ce775d64%7C84df9e7fe9f640afb435aaaaaaaaaaaa%7C1%7C0%7C636923409388500420&sdata=ITpcHEoGZgHuOHrsJEi2WfmtW4QDwDcFGh2Nt01bMg8%3D&reserved=0> suggests (in addition to 10.140 for PSK-31) 10.130-10.132.5 for PSK-31, so maybe give that a try.

I'm not sure why they even have designated frequencies on WARC bands considering that it's specifically designed as a mode for contesting, at least from my understanding.

Wherever else you try, just be sure to communicate and coordinate your frequency with others on the reflector in order to maximize the odds of finding a partner at a "new home" on the band.

Hope that helps...

Re: Life on other bands

 

I'll give it a try at  around 15:00Z on Saturday.  Like everyone says, 17 has been trashed by FT8 and looks like WSPR just above that.  How about going down to 18.097 VFO frequency?
Would also like to know a suggested frequency for 30 mtrs because that can be a great band.

I see most activity on the 20 and 40 meter bands (I don't have 80 or 160 antenna capability at present).   But I rarely see anything on 15, 17, or 30. 
With the sunspot minimum, 10 and 12 are still very iffy, but 15 seems to be getting better along with 17.

Would anyone be interested in setting up a designated time to move over to some of the other bands to get some QSOs?  

How about tomorrow, Saturday, November 2 at  15:00Z, we try to work on 17 meters? 

Thoughts?

* Don’t forget to set your clocks back Saturday nite, Nov. 3rd
  

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 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 detailsClick HereTriple Play Rules


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


4 Power Categories
:

QRP < 5 W

Call: “CQ 070 Sprint”


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


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.

 

This is one of our most popular contests. Last year, 29 logs were submitted.

Let’s see if we can beat that turnout.
