Okay, guys, here's an off-topic question:

What do you use for sound-card-based RTTY (if you use it)? This is
triggered by the fact that KG4DX last week, and VP8THU today
seem to be only on RTTY, and not PSK.

I've been trying for a few days now to get MMTTY to work, and I
don't seem to get it. I must be doing something wrong, but for the life
of me I can't figure it out.

I'd like something as easy to use as Digipan.

I've discussed this privately with one or two of you, but I'd like a few
more opinions. Thanks.

PSKFEST - great fun!

Charlie Trice, K8IJ <k8ij@...>
 

Hi folks,
 
Thanks to all for the PSKFEST - the QSOs, the management and all the great fun.
 
My stats/comments:
 
Total QSOs = 196
Dupes = 7 (Was the dupe with Steve, N6YIH/7 a test???)
States = 41
DX = 19
 
Ran 30 watts with a vertical.
 
1st highpoint: working KA3X and N3DQU back to back.
2nd highpoint: finally snagging HI when Rick, KH7O called me.
 
Worked all 4 PODXS fellas and worked WB5NHL, K0CIE and VE3IAY each 3 times - thanks!
 
Worked only Ontario in VEland.
 
I still think RST is a waste of time.  I'm still not sure how it applies to PSK31 anyway.  Exchanging names makes it more personal, even in the hit and run environment of a contest.
 
Would I do it again?  You bet!
 
Vy 73,
 
Chas, K8IJ

I was trying to get to the website to check this but it can't hit it at all. I'm adding up my scores for the PSKFEST and wonder if the US and Canada also count as multipliers for a US station.

Anyone know?

   Yeah Joe, they count, not to mention HI and AK as DXCC entities. Steve is adjusting the scores to reflect this if not already taken. AOL is doing "things" with their servers, even I haven't been able to get up to my own website hi! Jay N3DQU.

Re: eQSL (was Digital DXCC)

Steve W3HF
 

FWIW, I am both registered and "Authenticity Guaranteed." AG
doesn't cost anything--you only have to email a scan of your
license. But to be eligible for their awards (eDX100, etc) you do
have to have made a financial contribution.

Like most, I also prefer paper QSLs. I try to QSL all DX contacts,
and will respond to anyone domestically who requests a card. (I also
send directly, without request, a card to anyone who says it's their
first PSK QSO.) But at least there is one award that does accept
eQSLs, and that is PODXS's own DPX award. For that reason, I
have started going through my log and submitting eQSLs for prefixes
for which I don't have the paper version.

Digital DXCC

Duncan <zl3jt@...>
 

de Jungle Telegraph
I have 161 DX Entities worked on psk, and 78 confirmed to date. Erika...you can retrieve
your eqsls without being a member... Go to the site www.eqsl.cc and follow the instructions.
You will need to confirm your log entries in order to retrieve your card. You can
then download the ones you want.
Of Course the 'Committee' will not accept eqsls..(YET).. but they are less prone
to 'cheating' than any other method of confirmation.
The costs for QSLing rear the ugly heads, once again!
But it does keep people employed....would be OK if all were returned....

I believe registering with eqsl is free.  I am registered but not “authenticated” .  I have not paid a dime so far.  I enjoy receiving the eqsl’s but would rather have the “real thing”.  I will probably get the authenticity guaranty some time in the near future and maybe upload my own card.

Re: Digital DXCC

DL2AYL@...
 

Hi Duncan,

you can retrieve only three eqsl's without being registered.
This amount I have already retrieved when I needed
some cards for my membership in the 070 club.
When you'll retrieve another card you'll get the message that you must
register with them.
In Germany the costs for the bureau qsl's are already covered with our
membership-fee for the radio club, and since I prefer the oldfashioned cards
I'll not register with the eqsl.cc. I can't help it, I love the real cards,
for me they are about 50% of the fun of hamradio. A flimsy eqsl is no
competition for a good card.

Steve, I have 99 countries in PSK31, but only 39 confirmed.
I get very few QSL replies via bureau.

Re: DXCC - PSK-31

I have worked 178 entities in PSK, confirmed 67 so far, mostly via the
bureau. A lot of eqsl's, but I'm not registered there and can't retrieve
them. In RTTY I have worked 106 entities with just 240 qso's.

Re: DXCC - PSK-31

Alan M. Eshleman <doctore@...>
 

Someone must have done this by now. I have about 60 DXCC "entities"
without trying very hard, and about 30 confirmed. I have #319 on CW/SSB
and just don't have the drive (and postage) to go after a PSK DXCC until
the ARRL starts accepting digital confirmations. Perhaps some day the
award will come to me in the form of cards via the bureau.

Re: PSKFEST experiences

Hello Demetre,
I hope you hear me not at the same time all over 20m, ha ha ha. Indeed I had
some problems to tune the PA well for most output while less distortions.

I believe you know the situation, when other stations came closer and closer
from both sides. They don't hear you and you have to QSY.

Your signal was also very pretty and strong here in soutwest Germany.

cuagn and 73's de Dieter

Steve,
it harms that we don't came together. At late afternoon (local) the first W
came up, but with weak and very changefully signals. My experiences is this
contest is, you need a very good antenna to use QRP successfully.
I plan to mount a single LOOP for only 20 m if the weather permits it. It's
no fun to work in the roof at temperatures down to -18�C, hi. All parts are
situated already here, including a simple rotor for tv antennas. Hope to
finish it befor the Spring Rumble.
