Hi Everyone,

I am reloading several Digimode programs again, after a PC crash, and bumped
into IZ8BLY's "Stream" program.  It looks very nice, does anyone have any
experience working in any of the modes available in this program, besides
PSK31? I find the MFSK en the PSK63 , PSK125 interesting, but haven't heard
anyone to try it with. Are there separate frequencies for these modes, since
they are a bit more broadband than PSK31?  How about it, Jay? (DQU)  You are
always in for an experiment, right?  hihi    73 de John KC0DEB


   Hey, glad to see you made it back safe and sound John! Hope your journey was an enjoyable one. I have in fact used IZ8BLY's Stream program to work MFSK16. The program is really different to use, especially if you are used to Digipan or MixW, but it appears to be a stable program and also has a very good help file. Suggest you use Ernie Mill's very fb tutorial on MFSK16/Stream to help fill in the blanks < www.qsl.net/wm2u >. Seems like the MFSK16 crowd is a very small but enthusiastic bunch and putting out a call on what seems to be a dead band will oftentimes bring them out of hiding hi! Most of them act surprised to hear another MFSK16 signal out there! I think I have maybe 10 or 12 different stations in the log on that mode, even managed to cross the pond on 10m. The mode is definitely different from PSK31 as it has FEC, but don't know if it is much of an advantage. Does sound neater on the air than PSK tho, an interesting mode to play around with...Jay N3DQU.

John -

There seems to be a small group of folks that explore some of
these modes. I found a group on Yahoo that tries to be a
clearinghouse for skeds for these. I think it's called sound-card-
mode-skeds, or something like that.

KF4HOU is the moderator/owner, I think.

P.S. No, I have never tried any of the other ones, either.


Re: MFSK16, PSK125F,...

DL2AYL@...
 

Hi Jan Hendrik, seems you are back welcome home! MFSK is a great mode in
rough conditions, you can find signals on 20, 15 and 10 meters among the
RTTY sigs. I have seens PSK63 among the PSK31 sigs, but seems there is not
much interest for those.

Just a reminder to all you prefix hunters out there that PODXS is now
sponsoring a digital prefix award program called PODXS DPX. This program is
somewhat like the WPX program sponsored by CQ magazine, but recognizes the
achievements of the amateur radio operator in the digital modes. For
information on the PODXS DPX program go to
< http://www.qsl.net/wm2u/podxs_dpx.html > or <
http://hometown.aol.com/n3dqu/podxs_dpx.htm >...Oh yeah, 070 Club members get
a 50% discount on the application fee too! Now is that a carrot or what?? 73

Jay -

I occurred to me that the 070 URL does not show up at all on the Yahoo
Groups web site, other than in emails. So I just added it to the
Bookmarks section.

You might consider adding either the URL (or a note to look in
Bookmarks section) as part of the intro writeup on the home page.

Hi Jay,
 
I received my membership certificate (#180) in yesterdays mail.  Thanks to you and Jay.  I'll now be working on the "spots". 
 
Is there a web site or some other means of finding out what all the different Awards are and the Rules for them?  Also, the same for any PO-DXS (070) contests? 
 
I have more than enough contacts for the Rag Chewers certificate and will be submitting for it in the very near future.

   Every so often we hear from an 070 Club member who wonders why he
got his certificate in the mail but not his endorsements, or visa versa. For
those newcomers to the 070 Club and those members who have often
wondered but were afraid to ask, here is a brief description of the 070 Club
organization and what happens with your applications.

   The 070 Club is a PSK awards program sponsored by the Penn-Ohio DX
Society, a very small (4 regular members, 4 honorary members) HF-oriented
club located in western Pennsylvania and more commonly known by its initials
PODXS (pronounced PO-DIX), not to be confused with the Ohio/Penn DX
Bulletin, a very fine weekly DX newsletter published by Tedd Mirgliotta,
KB8NW.

   The 070 Club itself is run by two guys, both named Jay. For convenience
sake and to avoid any confusion, they will be referred to by their callsigns
KA3X
and N3DQU.

   KA3X is the manager of the 070 Club and holds certificate #001. He is the
Top
Banana and takes care of the new members, issues 070 Club member numbers,
member certificates, Ragchewers certificates and QSO upgrade spots (e.g. 50,
100, 150, etc). KA3X's email address is < JHudak3rd@... >.

   N3DQU holds certificate #010 and takes care of the 070 Club website and
all of
the information placed therein. He also takes care of the 070 Club reflector,
issues
the endorsements (e.g. Aloha, Lower 48, Hot Dog!, etc.) and often spends his
off
hours thinking up new ones just to keep you guys busy! N3DQU is also the
chief
contest manager and takes care of such things as the PSKFest (with much
appreciated help from N6YIH/7) and the Three-Day Weekend (TDW), which is
coming up this June btw. N3DQU's email address is < n3dqu@... >.

   If they are lucky, KA3X and N3DQU may see each other once a month. There
is
no central database and no meetings to conduct 070 Club business. Almost all
correspondence regarding the 070 Club is passed between the two via the
internet,
and each mails out the respective items that they are responsible for to the
members. For example, if a member puts in for an upgrade to the 300 QSO level

and also applies for an Aloha endorsement, then the 300 spot will be mailed
out
by KA3X and the Aloha endorsement will be mailed out by N3DQU.

   For best results, please send your applications and requests to the person

responsible for that particular item. If you send a QSO upgrade to N3DQU for
example, your request has to be forwarded to KA3X and may result in a delay.
By
the same token, if you send an endorsement request to KA3X, then he must
forward
the information to N3DQU, once again possibly resulting in a delay.

   So you can see that it is quite possible to receive your upgrades,
certificates, and
endorsements all at different times, even though you had applied for them at
the
same time. Also, please note that when there are many endorsements to be sent

out for 070 Club member participation in a PSK event like the PSKFest, TDW or

TARA Rumble, then the turnaround time for certificates and endorsements will
also
be longer until things get caught up.

   The 070 Club is free and open to all amateurs licensed to operate on the
HF bands.
Operation of this awards program is made possible thru the support of the
Penn-Ohio DX Society and 070 Club members. Thank you for your participation
and enthusiasm! 73 de Jay N3DQU.
