During the last year I have heard in PSK-31:

YO2BB 80
YO2BE 20
YO2BZV 20
YO2MAD 40
YO4DFT 40
YO4UQ 20
YO5CRQ 10-80
YO6CFB/QRP 15

So there is some PSK-31 activity in Romania, just
wait for the TARA Rumble.

73 Costas SV1XV

I have also worked

YO3JW
YO4GDP
YO5BBO
YO8FR
YO9FYP

Unfortunately these were all prior to 19 Jan 2002, so my only QSO
towards the endorsement is my one with YO5CRQ during the
PSKfest. :-(

Zoli is right about the active hams in Romania, they just went off PSK or
into hiding after the YO-Endorsement
was put up.

Hmmmm.....Well, Zoli assured me that there are 40-some YO's on hf running PSK.
I wonder if he said that just to see Romania on the endorsements page hi! Jay N3DQU.

Re: YO-Endorsement

Zoltan Bordas <borzol@...>
 

This is happening to me also almost like your case, Erika... I was full of EA stations last year even when I called DX... and very few found this year, HI.
 
Returning to the YO endorsement, I try to be on frequency almost every day at least 1...2 hours (as my job permits). I didn't like the ATA contest last year when no one TA station was there (well, maybe there was, but I didn't see them...). This morning I worked YO4UQ on 20m, last night on 80m found YO8 and others also.
 
Hope all interested stations will find 5 YO px's sooner or later... I make the proganda to activate as much as I can...

I think it's like the spanish-speaking diodes that Steve N6YIH has in
his antenna line. hi hi

Actually, I saw both YO9ALY and YO6BHN on 10m PSK about an
hour ago. Didn't get either, though. :-(

Re: PW0T (Dxpedition operating)

Interestinly also, on CW the idiot frequency cops are usually not smart enough to exactly match the DX stations frequency and keying characteristics. Therefore it is generally quite easy to tell a pirate from the real McCoy. On PSK, it is not so easy to tell the difference.

Especially if you run with the AFC always on.

Re: PW0T (Dxpedition operating)

ve3iay <ve3iay@...>
 

Hi Jay,

Before you blame PW0T for responding to calls on their own frequency,
consider the possibility that the station responding to the caller on
PW0T's frequency might not have been PW0T. This is something I have
observed often in CW, but it occurs in digital modes too:

DXpedition sending: CQ DE DX0DX UP 3

XX0LID comes back on the same frequency: DX0DX DE XX0LID XX0LID

"Frequency cop": UP UP UP

XX0LID doesn't go away. A QSO or two later, here's what happens:

DXpedition sends: CQ de DX0DX UP 3

LID comes back yet again: DX0DX DE XX0LID XX0LID

FREQUENCY COP (NOT DX0DX): XX0LID 599

LID: TU 599 599 DE XX0LID

and meanwhile the DXpedition carries on, perhaps even completely
unaware of the goings-on on their transmit frequency. XX0LID won't
ever get a QSL, since he's not in the DXpedition's log, but for the
moment he goes away happy and gets off the frequency.

Apart from ethical and legal considerations, the downside to the
frequency cop's tactic is that by responding on frequency, he is
encouraging the very behaviour that upsets him.

It's sometimes easy to diagnose this by ear in CW when the DXpedition
and the frequency cop are on slightly different frequencies or have
different-strength signals, but XX0LID is already demonstrably unable
to follow instructions, so maybe he will also be unable to figure out
what is going on and will fall for it anyway. In digital modes, you
may need to look very carefully at the signals in your waterfall
display to figure out what is going on.

While I'm at on the soapbox: believe it or not, a lot of callers
appear to call without even being able to copy the DX. At least, they
keep on calling right through a QSO the DX station is completing;
they respond even when the DX makes it clear he is trying to contact
someone else (DX sends 4AA? 4AA? BK and XX0LID calls him despite the
total lack of similarity between the two call signs); they ignore
other instructions (UP 3, or EU ONLY); and even after the DX clearly
works them, they keep on calling, apparently totally unaware that the
DX already has worked them. If you can't copy the DX, how can you
possibly complete a QSO? I would have thought this was obvious, but
apparently it isn't...

73,
Rich VE3IAY
