Steve  and all ….

 

Can recall back in the days of 75 m  AM there was a bunch of guys and they said Z”let’s make some music”….   About 6 stations keyed up with dead carriers on the same frequency  and it was “heterodyne heaven” . Really aggravated a lot of folks.  Hi, hi !

Ø7Ø Club TRIPLE PLAY LOW BAND SPRINT starts tomorrow -

stan W9SMR
 

 The Ø7Ø Club TRIPLE PLAY LOW BAND SPRINT starts tomorrow -

Saturday, November 9 - 0000 UTC (Friday, Nov. 8 - 7:00 p.m. EST * )

to Monday, November 11 - 0000 UTC (Sunday, Nov. 10 - 7:00 p.m. EST * )

 

  

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


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


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 2,710 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. 




73,

Stan

Re: JT ?

Paul Butzi (W7PFB)
 

I’m seeing two psk31 traces, and KE5HL calling CQ using Contestia 4/500 up at 140722.5 or so.

I see one mode I can’t identify up near 14070+1900 Hz.  Based on the timing it doesn’t seem to be any of the JT or FT modes.  Something that’s mfsk and about 150 Hz wide.
