Re: Old F.A.R.T.S. update

Charlie Trice <k8ij@...>
 

Greetings all,
 
The Old Florida Amateur Radio Radio Transmitting Society, or "Old F.A.R.T.S." as we are affectionately called, announces a change of one our team members. 
 
KE7FN is unable to devote much time to the Rumble due to a previous family/chuch conference.  He is replaced by Jere, N4DQ in Georgia.
 
We also want y'all to know that we are brewing up massive quantities of Hot Chile and Baked Beans to be consumed during the Rumble.  Certainly our signals will speed to their destinations with the additional propulsion.
 
Good luck to all and enjoy the Rumble.
 
VY 73,
 
Chas, K8IJ
Old F.A.R.T.S. Gaffer
 


Deadline is close !!!

Ladies and Gentlemen, START YOUR ENGINES.
 
Could all Rumble Team participants please check the "results" page and check your Teams Declarations. Don't forget they will be frozen at 8:00pm Thursday est. (00:00z Friday). You have less than one day!
 
Also check out the generous offer from our Sponsor, Jim, VE9WH who offers a "Bag of New Brunswick Dulse" to the first place winner in the Normal Category. I have it on good authority that this is absolutely delicious :)  You will find this posted on the "Rules" page.

Greetings:

I'd like to invite all of you to try our Ernie Mills, WM2U "All New" Elmering Group. This group is centered on digital communications, and the volunteers that are needed to get everyone on-the-air. With the explosion of sound card technology and number of software programs available for a wide verity of digital communications, we need Elmer's to help these new digital pioneers get started. This is Ernie's whole concept. To make available an info group that provides the necessary tools (mainly Elmers!) for those hams that enjoy helping out our newest experimenters, and in many of cases the not so new! This site will  cover all modes SSTV, APRS, ASCII, RTTY, PSK31 and the long list goes on. If you have questions, come join us, we'll try and find you the answers you need. If you enjoy helping out others that are getting started, again, we need you too! In fact Ernie HIGHLY recommends that we ALL take an active roll on this group! So, what do you say, you going to try it out? Come on! Just go to:

http://www.yahoogroups.com/group/wm2u-elmering

Let's make sure that Ernie knows we're all behind him and support his efforts!

Mystery Solved!

Steve W3HF
 

The long-standing "mystery" team is ready to announce its
existence. We won't bother with the usual banter about superiority,
as our expected dominance of the contest will be obvious to
everyone.

The World Team is composed of:

W3HF Steve (Gaffer)
TI2/AK0A Bill
KG6EXF Bill
ZL3JT Duncan

and in the tradition of American baseball, a player to be named
later.

See you in the contest (and in our dust).

73,
Steve
W3HF


Island Activity

w1sql@...
 

My local club will be running a special event station N1EV from an
island off the coast of Connecticut. This island is not populated and
is owned by a local maritime muesuem. It has an intact lighthouse
that was built in colonial times. John, N1OLO, was able to get the
island activated for the first time as part of the World Lighthouse
Award. The lighthouse number is LH 2712. Since it is an island it
also qualifies for IOTA with a number of NA-136.

Look for us on Sunday September 30, 2001 from about 10am to 5pm. We
will be running PSK on 20, 15 and 10 as well as SSB and CW depending
on conditions and operators.

Be one of the first to work this brand new lighthouse number and
fairly rare IOTA number in one shot.

Erika, and other DX stations . . .

I will be going to the USS Pampanito to operate PSK this weekend, and will try
to make a few Q's with DX stations, and 070 club member stations.

Re: USS Pampanito goof

DL2AYL@...
 

Hi Steve,
must say I understood you completely, was looking for you on Saturday, but
on 20 meters at this time the European qrm is so strong that stations from
the far side have no chance here, 10 meters would be better, if you have
the antenna for that, we Europeans and Asians would highly appreciate it.

Boy is my face red!

When I said I was going to be operate off the USS
Pampanito "tomorrow", it was already "tomorrow". I didn't realize
what I had done, but I posted the announcement on Friday PST thinking
it was still Friday and it was already Saturday UTC. Sorry for the
confusion. Next time I head to the sub, I will make sure I watch the
times and actually state the day of operation.

I definitely want to work as many of you as I can.

73, Steve KQ6VH

p.s. Anyone have a good watch/calendar I can borrow? Hi Hi

I already tried that, and Jay won't buy it!

I, too, missed them yesterday. 1600z is still a little early for a

Hello Jay and the group,
That picture was taken by me when I was on duty in California.
I had assigned to Sacramento for taking a course on my job. During my trip ,
I visited Reno , and San Francisco and took some pictures.

The day before yesterday , I have some guests at home and I saw the picture
of USS PAMPANITO by chance when we took a look at the picture albums.
Unfortunately I haven't made any QSO with USS PAMPANITO yet , and I thought
I might get a QSL if I proof that I had a face to face contact with
Pampanito...(Last paragraph is just a joke..hi)

I just thought there is somebody corious about the Pampanito .

Ok , Jay that is my story about it.
