I am not a grid square hunter, but if there is enough interest in a
program like this amongst the members, the 070 Club will aim to please!
On the subject of contesting, there are some who just can't get enough of
contests, while there are others who say we have too many contests already.
What would you guys say to the idea of modifying the PSKFest to accomodate
the grid square hunters and the prefix hunters as well? There are a couple
different ways to do it, but I think it would not be too difficult to do.
Changing the PSKFest rather than adding two new contests to the calendar may
be the way to go....Jay N3DQU.

Hi Jay, what is that?
They are asking a lot of questions I don't answer everybody and then tell me
the server is too busy.
Why do we have to sign in again anyway?

VY2RO is on 15 meter 21.072.58 right now. This a chance for another IOTA and a big step for the Canada Maple leaf award.

Re: Your thoughts [on grid squares]

John Durbin <durbinsjz@...>
 

I think that the grid square idea is good but like Peter said the cost of
all of the QSLing could get to be a lot. My logging program keeps track of
grid squares for me so that is no big deal to me. If it was HF that is good
also. I am looking forward to a 10 M sprint sometime this fall that would be
fun.

I am not sure how good an idea this might be...

As I have mentioned before, I am a 6m enthusiast. Of course, Grid Squares
are a big focus of operation on that band (100 confirmed gets you ARRL
VUCC,
etc.).

When 6m is in Season -- as it is now with Summer E-skip -- keeping up with
the paperwork for grid squares can get time consuming. Fortunately, since
my main focus is 6m when it's open and it's open only rarely outside the
Summer months, that's OK. 6m will be shutting down for the season in the
next few weeks, and I can spend more time on HF.

But, if I were chasing grids on any form of HF, the paperwork would simply
be too much. It's hard enough keeping track of whether or not I need
DM-42
on one band; I really don't want to have to look for it elsewhere.

And let's not forget the expense -- I don't mind dropping a few green
stamps
for rare DX grids on 6m. After all, one doesn't work Europe on 6m
everyday.
But on HF? That's different entirely. That small wad of singles I keep
in
my desk drawer for foreign QSLing wouldn't last long chasing

And, if there were a contest featuring the same data, would
you participate?
I might play at it, but that's about it. Of course, I am still holding
out
for a 10m or 6m QSO party...

Hi folks,

My observations are, that 4Z4DX sends QSLs only to stations, that are
interesting for him.

Maybe a German call is just too humble for him. The first qso I had with him
was in April 1999, enough time to answer a qsl.

Yes, many folks seem to send Grid Square data anyway so it seems like a
natural thing.

Well, not a bad idea but collecting the required QSL cards
is difficult for many of us.

Possibly, although there are already too many PSK-31 contests.
